Invisalign FAQ

invisalignDental work is something that none of us look forward to. It’s costly, sometimes painful, and often very time-consuming. Many people are interested in dental work for cosmetic reasons but don’t want their treatment plan to interrupt their life. For people looking to correct the alignment of their smile, braces were the only option for many years. Now, there’s another choice!

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an alternative to braces that uses a series of clear aligners to straighten your teeth. The Invisalign treatment doesn’t use any painful metal, brackets, or wires like traditional braces. You also don’t have to adhere to the restrictions of what you can eat and do like you would with braces.

Who Can Use Invisalign?

Invisalign is a great option for teens and adults of all ages. If you think you’re too old for braces but still want to improve your smile, Invisalign is the perfect solution! Invisalign is able to correct almost all cases of misaligned teeth and teeth with bite issues.

Is it Hard to Care for Invisalign?

Caring for your Invisalign system is easy. Simply remove the aligners to eat, brush your teeth, and put them back in. You can clean your aligners using the Invisalign cleaning system or just a toothbrush with warm water. Remember never to use hot water when cleaning your Invisalign aligner because it can warp the shape of the aligner.

How Much Does It Cost?

Invisalign costs about the same as braces. You can bill your insurance plan to lower your total due amount and make monthly payments for the rest. CareCredit is a medical credit card accepted by most doctors who recommend Invisalign. They can help with a financing plan if the doctor’s office of your choice doesn’t accept monthly payments.

Why Should I Believe Invisalign Really Works?
