What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a system of clear, custom aligners that are designed to gently reposition and straighten teeth.
They are an excellent option for anyone who wants to improve their smile and avoid the discomfort, embarrassment, and inconvenience of traditional metal braces.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
Prior to undergoing treatment, many patients want to know: How much does Invisalign cost?
The average cost of an Invisalign treatment is $3500, which is equal to or less than the price of traditional metal braces. Plus, if your dental insurance offers orthodontic benefits, it will likely cover some or all of your Invisalign treatment.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign uses a 3D technology to create customized aligner trays that are made with a patented SmartTrack material.
Patients wear each set of trays for approximately two weeks and then replace them with a new set of aligners.
In most cases, you will see your dentist for regular check-ups every six-to-eight weeks.
Is Invisalign Painful?
It’s not uncommon for patients to notice some mild tooth soreness immediately after they start their Invisalign treatment. The good news is that this discomfort usually subsides within four days.
Going forward, you won’t feel much of anything as the custom, clear aligners gently reposition your teeth.
