Invisalign has revolutionized orthodontic treatment with its stunning results and discreet and convenient approach. As the leading teeth straightening system, Invisalign can deliver a gorgeous smile for adults and teens seeking either small aesthetic changes or major structural improvements. 

At Exquisite Dentistry, under the expert guidance of Dr. Aguil, a GoldPlus Invisalign provider, Invisalign is at the pinnacle of teeth-aligning technology. In this article, Dr. Aguil addresses some common questions regarding Invisalign as an investment and sheds light on its numerous benefits.

What is Invisalign and how does it work?

Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that utilizes clear aligners to gradually shift teeth into their desired position. The aligners are custom-made and virtually invisible, making them a highly attractive alternative to traditional braces, especially for adults. The treatment process involves a series of aligners, each used for approximately 1 to 2  weeks, providing an easy and comfortable teeth straightening experience.

Is Invisalign worth the investment compared to other aligners and braces?

Absolutely. While there are other aligner brands on the market, Invisalign has been leading the way for 30 years and is unmatched in experience and effectiveness. Invisalign also offers a host of advantages over traditional braces, including its virtually undetectable appearance and removability,  allowing for easier oral hygiene maintenance. With Invisalign, patients experience greater comfort, convenience, and confidence throughout the treatment process.

How long does the Invisalign treatment typically take?

The duration of Invisalign treatment varies depending on individual cases, but technological advancements, that only invisalign can provide, as well as starting early and before problems worsen, have led to shorter treatment times. At Exquisite Dentistry we generally quote a range of 6 to 12 months, though it is quite common to achieve faster results due to Invisalign’s advanced techniques and technology. Exquisite Dentistry patients also have the option for accelerators, which can produce results in as little as 3 months.

Are there any potential drawbacks or limitations to Invisalign?

Invisalign is highly effective for most orthodontia. That said, it is essential for patients to wear the aligners consistently and take proper care of them to achieve successful results in the shortest time. Complex orthodontic issues may require alternative treatments; a top-rated Invisalign dentist can advise you on whether Invisalign is ideal for your particular case.

What is the cost of Invisalign treatment?

The cost of Invisalign can vary depending on the complexity of the case. Many dental insurance plans provide coverage for Invisalign treatment under standard orthodontic benefits (see more about that below). In addition, at Exquisite Dentistry, we understand that cost can be a concern for some patients; therefore we offer flexible payment options and no-fee financing plans to make Invisalign–and a beautiful healthy smile–more accessible.

Does insurance cover Invisalign?

In many cases, Invisalign treatment is covered by standard orthodontic insurance benefits. Dental insurance plans that provide coverage for traditional braces often extend the same coverage to Invisalign. However, it’s important to review the specifics of your insurance policy to determine the extent of coverage. At Exquisite Dentistry, we work closely with our patients to maximize their insurance benefits and offer guidance on navigating the insurance process. Our team is dedicated to helping you achieve your desired smile while making payment as easy as possible.

What is the cost of doing nothing – can it lead to expensive dental problems down the road?

Misaligned teeth can exert pressures that degrade tooth, gum, and bone health over time. The resulting issues, such as cracks, infections, and root problems, often necessitate costly dental work like root canals and crowns.

By investing in Invisalign, you are proactively preventing these dental problems and maintaining the overall health of your teeth. A $5,000 investment in Invisalign is a relatively small price to pay compared to the cost of extensive dental work later in life. Additionally, straighter teeth are easier to keep clean, reducing the risk of gum disease and contributing to a healthier mouth and body.
