Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign® is a treatment option that straightens your teeth gradually over time. It’s often used as an alternative to braces. Although Invisalign accomplishes the same goal as traditional braces, this treatment is much less noticeable, making it a popular choice for patients who want to be discreet about their dental work.

How Does It Work?

Invisalign works by providing you with a set of unique aligners that have been designed specifically for you. These aligners will fit tightly over your teeth and are nearly invisible. You’ll change these aligners at regular intervals to continue moving your teeth. Each set of aligners will shift your teeth a little more until they become straighter.

Is the Treatment Painful?

Invisalign is designed to shift your teeth gently and gradually by exerting a precise amount of pressure on your teeth. Because the movements are so slow and gradual, you’re unlikely to experience any significant pain during treatment.

What are the Benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign provides several benefits for patients. Perhaps the most obvious benefit of treatment with Invisalign is the fact that they aren’t as obvious as traditional braces. You can wear Invisalign aligners without drawing attention to your teeth. In addition, Invisalign is convenient, comfortable, and gentle.

Invisalign is also flexible. Dr. Herzog can use Invisalign to treat a variety of different alignment problems. In some cases, treatment with Invisalign may even be faster than treatment with traditional braces.

How Long Does It Take to Straighten Teeth with Invisalign?

Every patient is unique, and the amount of time it takes to complete the treatment process will vary. Though some patients will require extensive work to get the results they want, others may not need much movement. Dr. Herzog can tell you how much time your treatment program should take.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

The cost of Invisalign treatment varies based on the extent of your treatment program. Dr. Herzog will provide you with a detailed estimate after he’s examined your teeth and developed a treatment plan. This treatment program can be covered by certain dental insurance plans, but we also accept payment plans as well. If interested, please ask us if this is a covered benefit on your plan.
