What is Invisalign?

Invisalign logo with a woman wearing Invisalign clear braces

Invisalign straightens teeth to give you the confidence of a great smile. Using a series of clear, virtually invisible aligners, Invisalign gently and gradually moves your teeth based on the treatment plan prescribed by your orthodontist or dentist. And, there are no wires or brackets so you’ll have confidence in your smile during and after treatment. In fact, most people won’t even know you’re wearing Invisalign. And, Invisalign aligners are removable so you can eat whatever you want and easily brush and floss as you normally would.

You’ll visit your orthodontist or dentist every 3-4 months and on average, Invisalign treatment takes less than a year.

Invisalign Cheat Sheet

How does Invisalign Work?

The virtually invisible aligners, which are made of a thermoplastic material uniquely developed for the Invisalign treatment plan, look similar to teeth-whitening trays. A series of Invisalign aligners are custom-made for you, to move your teeth in the sequence determined by your doctor. Each set of aligners is worn for two weeks in most cases before moving on to the next set of aligners.

iTero Machine

We use the iTero scanner to start our patients in Invisalign. In addition to avoiding impression goop, the scan provides a precise 3D image of the upper and lower arches which are submitted digitally to Invisalign.

How often do I need to wear my aligners?

It is recommended that you wear your aligners for 22 hours per day and only remove them for eating or drinking, brushing, and flossing.

Will wearing Invisalign aligners affect my speech?

Invisalign aligners may temporarily affect the speech of some people, and you may have a slight lisp for a day or two. However, as you get used to having aligners in your mouth, any lisp caused by the aligners should disappear.

How much does Invisalign cost?

Cost is always a concern, and only your doctor can provide the exact price of treatment. In most cases, Invisalign treatment is comparable to the cost of traditional braces. In the U.S., the cost of Invisalign treatment ranges from $3,500 to $8,000, with the national average at about $5,000.

Does insurance cover Invisalign?

Because medical benefits differ from policy to policy, you should review your personal coverage plan and check with your insurance provider. In general, if a patient has orthodontic coverage, Invisalign should be covered to the same extent as conventional braces.

Does Invisalign really work?

Yes. Over 1.5 million patients with a wide variety of dental challenges have been treated with Invisalign. Invisalign was developed with orthodontists and used in dental practices worldwide.
