Frequently Asked Questions
Have questions about Invisalign? Read through our commonly asked questions below to see how we can help give you the smile you have always dreamed of!
Does It Really Work?
Yes, Invisalign is effective at straightening teeth in dental and orthodontic practices around the world. In fact, 9 out of 10 Invisalign patients are very satisfied or extremely satisfied with the results and their experience.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign uses 3-D technology to map out a complete treatment plan. From this initial computer imaging, a set of custom aligners is made to fit your mouth and your unique treatment plan. Every Invisalign aligner gets worn for about two weeks to slowly move the misaligned teeth before the next aligner is used. This will gradually give you the straight smile you desire!
How often do I have to wear my aligners?
You are in complete control of the success of your treatment. You can take the custom aligner out to drink, eat, and brush your teeth, but the more they are worn, the better the results.
How long will it take to finish your treatment?
For many adults, the total treatment plan takes about a year, but this, of course, depends on your circumstances. Speak with Dr. Tenaglia about your goals and how they align with your Invisalign treatment.
How much does Invisalign cost?
The total cost depends on your unique treatment plan and the length of the program. It’s comparable to traditional braces and is usually covered, at least in part, by your dental insurance. Our office also has interest-free financing options for up to 12 months.
