What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses a series of aligners that are invisible, removable, and comfortable. People notice you and your smile instead of metal brackets and wires. Invisalign aligners are made with 3-D computer imaging technology based on a computer model of how teeth move and are proven effective. See the video below for some computer models of how Invisalign moves teeth.
Why choose Invisalign?
In addition to being virtually unnoticeable, Invisalign aligners are removable. That means you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. Additionally, oral hygiene such as brushing and flossing are easier. The aligners are comfortable and contain no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. No metal and wires usually mean fewer follow-up visits for adjustments. Invisalign allows patients to view their virtual treatment plan when they start so know how their straight teeth will look when treatment is complete. Invisalign also allows treatment to be completed in a shorter time than conventional braces due to the precise application of force and movement of the teeth.
How does it work?
Invisalign patients wear each set of aligners for two weeks and remove them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As each aligner is replaced with the next in the series, the teeth move little by little, week by week, until they have reached the final position. You’ll visit Dr. Cobb once every six weeks to ensure treatment progress as planned. Total treatment time averages about 1 year and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is about 24, but both vary from case to case.
What are the treatment options and cost?
Invisalign allows treatment to be completed by both general dentists and orthodontists with no difference in treatment outcomes. The only difference is in the treatment cost. The cost for Invisalign at our office is more than $1,000 less than at an orthodontist. There are no hidden costs and this includes a final retainer. The average treatment time is about with the cost running between $3000 and $4200. The difference in cost is dependent upon the length of the treatment plan.
What are the payment options?
We have several different options for payment. We require $500 down and with the remaining balance to be paid over the course of your treatment. If paid in full before treatment has started, you will get 5% off. We also accept payment from third party financings such as Capital One, Springstone, CareCredit and Citihealth. You have the option of no interest payments for 6,12,18 or 24 months through Carecredit or Citihealth. Please contact the office if you have any further questions about payment options.
