Q: How much does Invisalign cost?
A: As with other types of orthodontic treatment, the cost of Invisalign depends on the complexity of a patient's case. The cost is generally slightly more expensive than traditional braces, but find out what your treatment involves by contacting our office for a complementary appointment. We also do not let finances stand in the way of getting a beautiful smile. We offer a number of payment plans that makes any treatment fit our patient's budget.
Q: Does Invisalign really work?
A: Yes. In both clinical research and in orthodontic and dental practice nationwide, Invisalign has been proven effective at straightening teeth.
Q: Does insurance cover Invisalign?
A: Because medical benefits differ significantly from policy to policy, each patient should review their coverage. However, if a patient has orthodontic coverage, Invisalign should be covered to the same extent as conventional braces.
Q: What are aligners made of?
A: Aligners are made of clear, strong medical grade plastic that is virtually invisible when worn.
Q: What do aligners look like?
A: Aligners are nearly invisible and look similar to clear tooth-whitening trays, but are custom-made for a better fit to move teeth. Some orthodontist and dentists have referred to them as "contact lenses for teeth."
Q: How does Invisalign effectively move teeth?
A: Like brackets and arch wires, Invisalign Aligners move teeth through the appropriate placement of controlled force on the teeth. The principal difference is that Invisalign not only controls forces, but also controls the timing of the force application. At each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move, and these movements are determined by the orthodontic treatment plan for that particular stage. This results in an efficient force delivery system.
Q: What is the minimum age of a patient that a doctor can treat with Invisalign?
A: Doctors can use Invisalign to treat a vast majority of patients with fully-erupted molars.

Types of Braces
1. Metal Braces
Metal braces are the most widely used type of braces. They are very strong and can withstand most types of treatment. Unlike the metal braces of the past, today's metal braces are small, more comfortable and more attractive.
2. Clear Braces
Clear or ceramic braces are made of composite material. They are most often chosen by adult patients because they "blend in" with your teeth. Common drawbacks with the clear braces have to do with the ligatures (tiny rubber bands) that hold the arch wire to the brackets. These tend to stain between visits to your orthodontist.
Invisalign are "braces" that consist of strong plastic trays that are fabricated especially for you. Invisalign is for adult patients that have moderate orthodontic problems. Invisalign is truly invisible, no one will know that you are wearing braces.
