What is invisalign?
Invisalign is the clear alternative to braces that can help you achieve a straighter
smile. It involves a series of clear, custom-made aligners to gradually move your
teeth into their desired position. These aligners are virtually invisible, comfortable
to wear and easy to remove. Simply take them out for special occasions and brush
and floss as normal throughout your treatment. Invisalign is the modern and
hygienic way to straighten your teeth.
How does it work?
Using the latest in 3D imaging technology, your dentist or orthodontist can depict
the complete series of movements your teeth need to go through to achieve a
straighter smile. A series of custom-made aligners are then produced, which you
simply change yourself every two weeks to gradually move the teeth.
How long will treatment take?
The length of treatment is dependent on the severity of each individual patient’s
orthodontic issues. Treatment may vary from anywhere between six months to two
years. The average treatment time is between 12 to 14 months.
How much does it cost?
In most cases, the cost and treatment time of Invisalign is comparable to traditional
braces. However, as with other medical treatments, only your dentist or
orthodontist can determine the cost based on your specific needs. Other factors
may include your treatment goals, the difficulty of your case, how long you are in
treatment, your orthodontic insurance coverage and additional factors determined
by your dentist or orthodontist.
Does insurance cover this type of treatment?
If your insurance policy has orthodontic coverage, Invisalign should be covered to a
similar extent as conventional braces. However, as medical benefits differ
significantly from policy to policy, you should check with you health fund.
