To help you learn more about Invisalign, we’ve rounded up five questions we often hear from patients:

What issues can Invisalign correct?

Invisalign uses a custom-made series of aligners in a unique system that is molded specifically to your mouth. With a series of clear aligner trays, teeth can be straightened and beautiful smiles brought out.

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

Because Invisalign is a totally customized treatment plan, the length of time for each patient will differ. The average length of time for treatment to be completed is usually similar for both Invisalign and traditional braces. There are lots of factors that influence treatment duration, including age, and the level of change needed.

Does Invisalign work for adults?

Like traditional braces, Invisalign is suitable for adults and kids alike! The discreet appearance of Invisalign makes the treatment process convenient for working adults. 

Why is the initial cost of Invisalign higher than traditional braces?  

Invisalign uses uniquely crafted aligner trays custom made just for you, based upon an impression of your mouth taken by your dentist. These highly customized trays are produced in a state of the art laboratory, which is why the up-front cost of Invisalign is higher than traditional braces.

Why do I need Invisalign?

While everyone loves a beautiful smile, using Invisalign to correct and straighten teeth is not simply for your appearance. Having straightened and correctly aligned is good for your health! Aligned teeth help increase your oral health, preventing tooth grinding, protect against normal wear, and make it easier to clean your teeth effectively. A brilliant smile is good for your health!
