Fast facts about Invisalign
Who is a candidate for Invisalign?
The majority of people can benefit from this cosmetic treatment. The answer often comes down to your ability and willingness to follow the treatment plan. Ask yourself, “Can I commit to wearing my aligners for 22 hours every day?”
Can a teenager get Invisalign?
Invisalign easily treats most cases of underbite, overbite, overcrowding, and gaps — all common issues for teens. Some teens have a hard time wearing their aligners for the recommended 22 hours a day. If you think this will be the case for your teenager, traditional braces may be the better choice.

Invisalign tends to be a similar cost to traditional braces, ranging from $4,000-$6,000 depending on the complexity of your situation. Many insurances cover some Invisalign treatment costs. As a fee-for-service office, we also offer payment plans and financing options to help you budget for care.
