Invisalign® Q & A

What Are Invisalign® Braces?

Invisalign® braces are clear plastic trays that are custom made to fit over your teeth. They work in much the same way as traditional braces, but without the hardware. They are in fact, a series of trays. Each tray is crafted to add pressure on your teeth so that the tooth moves towards its final destination. The trays are removable making it easier to care for your mouth. Because each tray is constructed of clear rigid plastic, there are no sharp surfaces that cause irritation in your mouth.

What Are the Advantages of Invisalign® over Traditional Braces?

The biggest advantage of Invisalign® braces is that they are removable by the patient. This means that oral hygiene is more manageable. One of the biggest problems with braces is that hygiene is tedious, and that leads to poor oral hygiene, cavities, and even gum disease. Invisalign help make daily care for the mouth easier so in a sense they help improve oral health during the straightening process.

Another advantage to Invisalign® is that they are easy to manage for kids. Without the sharp edges that braces are famous for, there is less discomfort. The fact that Invisalign® braces are nearly transparent means that there is little to no social stigma about having braces. There is a long list of positive benefits from Invisalign braces, but the result is always the same - a bright, happy smile.

Are Invisalign® Braces Cheaper than Traditional Braces?

There is not a blanket answer for that question. What Invisalign® or traditional braces cost is dependent upon the type of dental insurance that you have. Some insurance policies cover traditional braces, but not Invisalign. Some offer to pay part of the cost of either. If you need help determining your portion of braces or Invisalign, just call our office. We can provide you a more detailed answer after reviewing your insurance.
