Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign clear aligners are an innovative way to straighten your teeth quickly without worrying about unsightly wires and brackets. You receive a custom set of aligners every few weeks that fit your teeth perfectly and are designed to slowly move your teeth into their new positions. You’ll need to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day to get the best results.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign is made with SmartTrack material which helps to move the teeth faster than other aligners. Patients find Invisalign clear aligners are a convenient way to straighten teeth at any age and you can see and feel the progress week after week. You don’t have to eliminate your favorite foods and the aligners are virtually undetectable. Since they’re removable, you can brush and floss as you normally do and take them out when needed.

What problems can Invisalign treat?

Invisalign can correct a number of orthodontic and cosmetic problems, including:

  • Slightly twisted teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Slanted teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

What can I expect with Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign treatment begins with taking digital impressions of your teeth and Dr. Jones uses a special software program to create a 3D version of your aligners. He sends the results to a lab that makes your custom set of aligners. You’ll pick up your first set from Dr. Jones as soon as they’re ready.

Your teeth start to shift within the first week and you’ll come back to the office every few weeks to pick up the next set of aligner trays. Patients see progressive results as they get through their treatment weeks, which takes an average of 12 months. Once complete, you will need to wear a retainer in order to maintain your results.

Will insurance cover Invisalign?

Even though Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment, most insurance companies view it as cosmetic dentistry and may not cover some or all of the treatment costs. Dr. Jones does offer flexible payment and financing options to make Invisalign more affordable.
