Q: Does my insurance cover Invisalign braces?

Usually yes. In these cases there is typically a certain amount reserved for orthodontic services. Since Invisalign is orthodontics, it is not excluded.  Don't be surprised though when in a few years (maybe even less than that) perhaps a few and then more insurance companies will try to exclude this service from their policy to save and make more for themselves.
We don't let finances stop you from getting what is necessary. Not now and not in the future. If you have insurance benefits we can help.  If you have an average credit, you will be able to pay for your Invisalign for less that $100 a month. It's as easy as that.

How long do I need to wear my aligners?

Each aligner must be worn at least 20-22 hours per day. Done this way, each aligner is used for 2 weeks. This way if you have 30 aligners for your treatment and you wear 2 aligners each month (1 every 2 week) then the math becomes simple.  This way you know when you'll be done with more certainty.

Do the aligners hurt?

Aligners are super tight when you initially place them in your mouth. Your teeth will be sore, especially for the 1st 24 to 48 hours.  Less than 1% of people say it hurts.  But your teeth will probably feel sore.  After this period, your teeth will become less sore and you won't experience any more discomfort.

Can I eat with the aligners on?

No, although some people manage to do it. You can have food get stuck between the aligners and your teeth and cause discomfort , pain and even breakage of the aligner. If your aligner becomes damaged as a result of this you'll need a replacement aligner which means additional cost! So it is best not to chew with the aligners in. You may drink clear, sugar free drinks with the aligners on.  If you like to sip on your coffee here and there, a straw is highly recommended. Coffee will stain your aligners and your teeth.  Ideally you should take your aligner out for drinking non-clear drinks.

What happens if I lose my aligner?

A replacement aligner can be ordered.  However, there will be an additional charge for the replacement aligner. To avoid this problem though, you will be given specific storage cases to use for your aligners.

I have had braces before, but my teeth shifted over time. Can I get Invisalign?

Yes. This very same thing happens to a lot of people. Invisalign is very useful in these cases.
