These are the most common questions that are asked by patients during a consultation to see if they are good candidates for Invisalign®:
Q: How does it work?
A: Invisalign is a revolutionary technology that aligns teeth using 3-D computer imaging technology from start to finish. Unlike the metal that reveals that the patient is wearing brace, Invisalign works invisibly to align the teeth. It uses a series of transparent customized set of aligners that are removable and perfectly molded to your teeth. The patient replaces each aligner with the next in the series after about 2 weeks and the teeth will continue to move into the desired position, millimeter by millimeter, week after week.
Q: How long would the treatment take?
A: The total treatment period may range anywhere between 3 and 18 months. This depends on the nature of the problem and the degree of teeth malposition and bite improvement required.
Q: How much does Invisalign cost?
A: The cost of Invisalign treatment can be comparable to that of braces when the treatment is short and limited to a few months. It depends on the kind of treatment you need and how long it takes. Flexible payment options are available to fit the family’s budget.
Q: Who can benefit from Invisalign?
A: Most people can benefit from Invisalign orthodontics. They include adults and most teens with erupted second or 12-year molars. If you are a teen, ask us if your treatment can begin now or if you might have to wait a little longer.
