Invisalign FAQs

Does insurance cover Invisalign?

Sometimes, insurance companies will cover a portion of your Invisalign treatment. However, most people pay for Invisalign out of pocket. We’ll be happy to check your insurance coverage and discuss financing options to make Invisalign a possibility for you!

What’s the cost of Invisalign without insurance?

It varies from person to person. The complexity of your particular dental case and the length of time (and number of trays) you’ll need will affect the cost. The best way to get an accurate, customized estimate is to schedule a free consultation with us!

Is Invisalign more expensive than traditional braces?

Invisalign is comparable in price to traditional braces.

Will Invisalign work for me?

For many people, Invisalign is a perfect solution for straightening teeth without clunky metal braces. It can help with problems like overcrowding, gaps, and improper bite alignment. But depending on the complexity of your orthodontic needs, Invisalign may not be suitable for you. Your dentist will help you determine the best course of action during your consultation.

What are the benefits of Invisalign over traditional braces?

The biggest benefit is that Invisalign is nearly invisible! Especially for adults and teens who may be more sensitive about their appearance, Invisalign is an excellent solution to avoid metal braces. On top of that, Invisalign is often a shorter treatment process (up to 5 months shorter than traditional braces) and it’s more comfortable since it doesn’t involve metal brackets and wires. Office visits are also faster — you simply pick up your new aligners, go through a quick fit & progress check with your dentist, and go on your merry way!

Can I remove my Invisalign aligner trays?

Yes! While it’s recommended to wear your aligners 20-22 hours per day, you can remove them while eating, drinking, brushing & flossing, and even for important events like a wedding or job interview. You can even remove them to play sports or play an instrument, if preferred.

Can I eat and drink normally with Invisalign?

Since you can remove your Invisalign aligners as needed, there are no food restrictions! With traditional braces, there are many foods to avoid since they can damage your braces or get stuck. Invisalign aligners may be more susceptible to staining (in the case of something like red wine), but that’s precisely why you have the option to remove them — so you can still enjoy your favorite foods and drinks!
