 Invisalign is a revolutionary technology that straightens teeth without compromising the aesthetics of patients. Unlike the metal braces that are awkward to use and reveal that the person is using braces, Invisalign works invisibly and produces the same results.

Invisalign is a series of clear, removable aligners that help to straighten crooked or uneven teeth without metallic wires or brackets. Invisalign has become a very popular alternative to metal braces because of its obvious advantage of invisibility. Its effectiveness has been proved in clinical research trials as well as at a practical level in orthodontic practices across the country.

How does Invisalign work?

How invisalign work

A customized set of aligners for the patient are produced by the dentist and the Invisalign manufacturer. Once the aligners are ready, the patient wears them full-time for a period of two weeks. The aligners are to be removed only while eating, drinking, brushing, and cleaning the teeth.

The dentist may provide up to 12 retainers for the complete course of treatment. This depends on the nature of the problem, and the degree of teeth and bite improvement required. As the patient goes on replacing each aligner with the next in the series, the teeth will continue to move into the desired position, week after week. The process will be stopped when the teeth have come to their final desired position as per the orthodontist’s recommendation.

The orthodontist will monitor the patient’s progress every six weeks to ensure that the improvement is taking place as expected. The total treatment period may range between nine to fifteen months, depending on the severity of the patient’s condition.

Does insurance cover the cost of Invisalign treatment?

This depends on the kind of dental insurance plan the patient has taken. There are several dental insurance plans that provide coverage for adult orthodontics up to a specific limit. If the patient’s dental plan has a provision for this coverage, StarBrite Dental can assist the patient by pre-authorizing the treatment, in order to reduce the “out of pocket” expenses for the patient.
