Invisalign® FAQs

Invisalign03Are you still wondering if Invisalign® treatment is right for you? Take a look at some of the most common questions and answers below to help you make the right decision:

How do Invisalign® clear braces work?

Invisalign® clear braces straighten your teeth through the use of a series of custom-made aligner trays. These smooth, clear, comfortable trays are switched out every two weeks, gradually moving your teeth into place.

For added peace of mind, Dr. Hagstrom can create a personalized computer simulation, so you can see what your new smile will look like before you even start treatment!
How long will it take?

The length of time you need to wear Invisalign® clear braces depends on your situation. Many of our patients wear the aligner trays between 12 to 24 months, but the average amount of time is around 13 months. Most of our patients wear between 20 to 33 aligner trays throughout treatment.

How much do Invisalign® clear braces cost?

The total out-of-pocket cost for Invisalign® treatment varies for each person. Some patients have insurance that helps cover orthodontic treatment. Many patients are able to put up to $2,500 of their pretax dollars into a FSA account to help cover the cost of treatment.

We find that the cost of Invisalign® clear braces is comparable to the cost of traditional braces and adult orthodontics. We also offer payment plans for Invisalign® treatment. Dr. Hagstrom does not want the cost of Invisalign® treatment to prevent you from getting a straight, beautiful smile!

Invisalign04Can adults wear Invisalign® clear braces?

The short answer is yes! Adults love Invisalign® treatment because the aligners are so discreet and comfortable to wear. Invisalign® treatment is also ideal for adults because the system easily fits into an already busy lifestyle.

Will my lifestyle have to change to accommodate my Invisalign® aligners?

Very little adjustment is required with Invisalign® treatment. You can still eat all of the foods you love without worrying about damaging your orthodontics. The aligner trays can be removed to brush and floss, too. We keep office visits to a minimum, which means that interruptions to your busy lifestyle are minimal.

Best of all, clear braces are virtually invisible! Your teeth are gradually straightened without drawing any negative attention to your mouth. Invisalign® treatment is a convenient way to attain a straighter, more confident smile.
