How does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign straightens teeth with the most modern orthodontic technology available. A progression of aligners are custom-made just your you. These smooth aligner trays fit comfortably over your teeth, and they’re practically invisible.
How often do I need to wear my aligners?
The most effective duration to wear aligners is approximately 20 to 22 hours each day. We suggest removing them only for eating, brushing and flossing.
Will wearing aligners affect my speech?
As with other orthodontic treatments, the aligners may affect your speech temporarily. The most common side effect is a slight lisp for a day or two. However, any lisp caused by the aligners should disappear as your tongue gets used to having aligners in your mouth.
How much does Invisalign cost?
For most patients, the cost of treatment is comparable to traditional braces. Dr. Riano will determine the actual cost based on your specific needs during a complimentary consultation, as he does with all potential orthodontic treatments.
Does insurance cover Invisalign?
For patients with orthodontic coverage, this treatment is typically covered to the same extent as conventional braces. Since medical benefits vary greatly from policy to policy it’s important to review your personal coverage plan for details.
Does Invisalign really work?
Yes, we’ve have had a great deal of success using this innovative treatment. As with other orthodontic treatments, the probability of a successful outcome is higher for patients who comply with our treatment guidelines.
