Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign treatment is a nearly invisible way to straighten your teeth without the wires, brackets, and bands associated with traditional metal braces. Invisalign aligners are made of smooth BPA-free plastic and fit snugly over your teeth. Invisalign treatment gradually shifts your teeth into place using a series of clear aligners. Here are the answers to a few frequently asked questions about Invisalign treatment. 

  • What is Invisalign?

Invisalign treatment involves the use of a series of clear, removable aligners. Invisalign aligners are created from a durable, medical-grade, thermoplastic material. Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit over your teeth and are designed to move your teeth into the desired positions.

Invisalign aligners are to be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day, and treatment time varies based on individual needs. Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss.

  • Is Invisalign right for me?

Invisalign treatment is ideal for patients who want to straighten their teeth but have mild to moderate malocclusion. You can work with your dentist to determine if Invisalign is right for your needs.

Invisalign treatment uses clear plastic aligners to treat a malocclusion. The aligners are designed to gradually move your teeth into place. Patients who are self-conscious about the appearance of metal braces may find Invisalign aligners more appealing. Invisalign is also ideal for patients who want to straighten their smile without interrupting their normal routine.

  • How long does Invisalign take?

The length of treatment time depends on the complexity of your case. Your Invisalign treatment time will be tailored to your specific needs. Typically, Invisalign treatment takes approximately one year for adults. For teens, the length of treatment will vary depending on their growth rate.

Invisalign treatment has been proven to be very effective. About nine out of ten patients see significant improvement in their smile.

  • How long does Invisalign treatment take?

Invisalign treatment usually takes 12 months for adults. The exact length of treatment depends on the severity of each patient's condition. Some patients require less time to complete the process, while those with more severe misalignments may spend more time in treatment.

  • What are the benefits of Invisalign treatment over metal braces?

Invisalign treatment offers several benefits over traditional braces. Invisalign is more comfortable, easier to clean, and can be removed for eating. Invisalign is also much more discreet than metal braces. 

  • How much will Invisalign cost?

Invisalign treatment will vary in price from patient to patient. However, the cost of Invisalign treatment is often comparable to the cost of traditional braces. The cost of Invisalign treatment will depend on the individual treatment plan. Our dentist will be able to walk you through the costs of treatment in detail before you get started.
