Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign translates your
doctor's instructions into a series of nearly undetectable aligners. You wear each
set of aligners for about two weeks, moving your teeth millimeter by millimeter until
you've achieved the desired result.
Q: Is Invisalign effective?
Thousands of doctors are treating patients with Invisalign. It works for a wide range
of people whose teeth are too crowded or have spaces between them, as well as for
those whose teeth may have shifted after having worn braces in their youth.
Q: How often will I have to wear my aligners?
Invisalign only works while you're wearing the aligners. It's recommended that you
wear your aligners full-time, day and night, except to eat, brush and floss your
teeth or as directed by your doctor.
Q: How long does Invisalign take?
The duration of treatment depends on the severity of your case, which determines
the number of aligners you’ll need. However, the average is about 12 months, but
only your Invisalign-trained doctor such as Dr. Larry Lu can determine the length
of your treatment.
Q: How much does Invisalign cost?
As with traditional braces, the cost will be based on the complexity of your case
and the length of treatment. Invisalign cost only slightly more than braces and third
party finance may also be available to spread the cost over several years. If your
dental insurance plan covers traditional braces, it will typically cover Invisalign
to the same extent.
