Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I get the same results with Invisalign as I can with braces?

    Yes you can, Invisalign, much like braces, applies light pressure to the teeth to move them to an ideal position.  Invisalign can deliver the same result as braces in the vast majority of cases.

  • What are the primary benefits?

    Invisalign is so popular today because of several main benefits, including:

      • The aligners are clear and very discreet
      • Invisalign is comfortable, as it's custom-made for your bite
      • Invisalign is affordable — about the same cost as traditional metal braces
      • You'll spend less time at the orthodontist for check-ups with Invisalign
  • Is Invisalign more expensive than Braces?

    Not at our office! Although our braces and Invisalign fee may not always be the same, generally the fee is very comparable. Come in for a consultation and Dr. Webb will discuss which option would be best for you.

  • Does Invisalign hurt?

    Although Invisalign may make your teeth mildly sore (similar to braces), there will be very little discomfort involved. The Invisalign trays are very comfortable and can be taken out to eat, drink, brush, and floss.

  • How long does Invisalign take and how much does it cost?

    While every case is different, at our office the average length of treatment for our Invisalign patients is 12-18 months. We will be able to give you an estimated treatment time at your complimentary consultation. Invisalign is very affordable at our office and is similar to the cost of braces.
