Invisalign questions to ask orthodontist

Do you have crooked teeth or an overcrowded smile that make you grimace instead of grin? Fortunately, you may not need to sit in the orthodontist’s chair and receive metal braces. Invisalign offers a simple, painless, and invisible solution to your smile anxiety. First action to take, schedule your complimentary Invisalign consultation with our office. Next, make sure you ask your Wheaton Invisalign orthodontist the following questions during your consultation and before initiating your Invisalign treatment!

What Exactly is Invisalign and What Does the Treatment Entail?

Maybe you’re well versed on Invisalign but if you’re not, ask the question. Fully understand what you are signing up for. One of the many benefits of Invisalign is its versatility to work well with most people’s lifestyle. In addition, it’s able to deliver results with very minimal effort on your part.

Will I Be Receiving Invisalign or a Knock-Off Brand?

Some dental offices advertise as they are using Invisalign, but in reality, they are using a different clear aligner product. Invisalign is the only clear aligner system that has shaped FIVE MILLION smiles! Invisalign has proprietary technology that allows you to achieve your desired results comfortably, safely and accurately.

Are My Dental Goals Achievable with Invisalign?

Be very clear on what your goals are with our orthodontist. While it may seem obvious to you, it’s best to state exactly what your desired outcome looks like. Our orthodontist wants to know. By being upfront, we can consult you on if Invisalign is the best option and set out the appropriate treatment plan to achieve the desired results. This will save you time, money and provide peace of mind knowing you and your orthodontist are on the same page.

If braces are the better solution, don’t fret about how they’ll look! Remember, the goal is a straight, beautiful smile that you are proud of. We use an exceptional braces system that works faster than traditional braces and creates beautiful, full, straight smiles.

How Long Does Invisalign Take To Straighten Teeth?

This is the answer you’re probably most eager to learn. How many months or years will you need to use Invisalign before your teeth are finally straight and beautiful? The general answer for an average treatment time is between 12 and 18 months. As an added benefit, Invisalign can straighten your smile in about half the time of standard braces! However, you want to know about yourself. After your consultation, our orthodontist will be able to give you an estimate and better answer this question for you.

Keep in mind, a few factors influence the length of time Invisalign needs to deliver results. First, some tooth movements are trickier than others and may take extra time to straighten. Second, your compliance matters greatly! Wearing your aligners for 22 hours a day and 7 days a week is crucial to stay on track and have the teeth move into proper alignment. Third, your opinion matters! The right orthodontist will value your feedback and continue your treatment until you’re satisfied with the results.

How Much Will My Invisalign Treatment Cost? Do You Take My Insurance? Do You Offer Payment Plans?

The only way we will be able to give you a total cost of treatment is after we are able to do an exam. This allows our orthodontist to view your mouth, listen to your desired outcome and then create your customized treatment plan.

DPD Smiles accept most dental insurances. We can check with your insurance provider to see what they cover for orthodontic treatment.

Yes, we offer Invisalign payment plans! We want you and/or your child to be able to receive the care they need. If breaking up the payment makes it easier, we are happy to assist. Our team at DPD Smiles will go through your exact treatment plan and break up your cost into monthly payments.
