At his private practice, he often encounters patients that have read or been told their orthodontic problems are too complex and cannot be corrected with Invisalign treatment. In addition, most patients also mistakenly
believe that Invisalign costs are higher than braces and it is not covered by insurance. However, after sitting with him for just a few minutes many patients realize much of what they have heard is false, misleading or simply outdated.
Below are a few common questions and answers he gives to these patients.
Is Invisalign covered by insurance?
In short, yes. In general, if you have orthodontic coverage on your dental insurance, Invisalign should be covered to the same extent as conventional braces. That said, because medical benefits differ slightly from
policy to policy, we will gladly review your personal coverage with you.
Is the cost for Invisalign the same as braces?
Yes, Invisalign is the same cost as traditional braces in our practice. In addition to having
aligners that are virtually invisible and removable, patients are also being able to spend less time at the orthodontist and be free of brackets or wires. The smooth, comfortable plastic aligners used for Invisalign may cause mild discomfort, but they will never cause the same irritation experienced with wires and brackets.
Because the aligners are removable, patients are also able to eat whatever foods they wish and not have to worry about biting into apples, chewing gum or eating sticky foods as they would with braces.
Can you get the same results with Invisalign?
You sure can. There are many options for straightening your teeth, but none offer the comfort and convenience that Invisalign does. Upon completion of the Invisalign procedure, your new smile will look just as good as if you chose to have traditional braces without many of the negatives associated with having braces,
such as being embarrassed by the metal brackets or having to visit the orthodontist often to have your brackets adjusted. Along with Invisalign’s latest technological advances, we can now correct advanced orthodontic problems such as overbites, crossbites, openbites, overcrowding, etc.
Can children be treated with Invisalign?
Invisalign teen is an exciting new option now available for children at our office. No matter what stage of life you are in, child or adult, you deserve a confident, straight smile; and Invisalign can help in about 12 months or less in most cases.
Should I consult with an experienced Elite Preferred Invisalign Specialist before getting started with Invisalign?
Yes, experience and training is critical and matters most when selecting your doctor and it is often best to consult with a local certified Invisalign specialist who can identify the specifics of your case and is fully equipped with the skills and expertise needed to determine how your case can be best treated.
A highly experienced Invisalign specialist does not necessarily charge more for Invisalign than any other doctor, but in fact can help you avoid delays, costs, treatment compromises, and other unnecessary hassles.
