Invisalign straightens your teeth with a series of clear, virtually invisible custom-molded aligners. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth with results you'll notice sooner than you think. The course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into straighter position step by step, until you have a more beautiful smile. And unlike braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth as usual. Click HERE for more information on invisalign!
Q: How much does Invisalign cost?
A: The cost for Invisalign treatment varies from patient to patient, and depends on the severity of the case. If you are a candidate for Invisalign, we will take records (x-rays, photos, etc) at your consultation appointment in order to properly diagnose your treatment. Specifics of your cost be outlined at your follow-up appointment, after the records have been evaluated. If you wish, ranges may be offered at the initial consultation appointment, upon request.
Q: Is Invisalign more expensive than braces?
A: That depends...We need to pay a third party lab fee to Align Technology to prescribe the appliance, along with their specific retainers (Vivera). Thus, there is an increased fee to use Invisalign. Generally speaking, our fees are competitive to those who receive traditional orthodontics (braces) elsewhere.
Q: What is the difference between Invisalign and braces?
A: Generally speaking, Invisalign is more a more hygienic appliance and exerts less pressure than braces. For specific scenarios, Invisalign is a more precise appliance due to the vast amount of technology incorporated versus braces, allowing for shorter treatment times for certain patients.
Q: How long does Invisalign Treatment take?
A: Treatment time varies amongst patients and cannot be guaranteed. Length of time in aligners is dependent upon compliance of wear and tooth movements specifically. When used in conjunction with PROPEL orthodontic treatment, Invisalign treatment time can be reduced up to 50%!
