Invisalign Questions

Serving Buffalo, Lancaster, Orchard Park, New York

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made plastic aligners. They are a great choice for adults who want straight teeth but don't want to wear traditional metal braces.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign utilizes a series of custom-made aligners to incrementally make changes in the positions of your teeth. CT and CAD technologies aid in the development of the comprehensive treatment plan and fabrication of the aligners. You wear each set of aligners for two weeks before moving on to the next set. When you've worn all of the aligners, your treatment is complete and you have a beautiful smile with straight teeth.

What types of dental conditions will Invisalign resolve?

Currently, Invisalign can't correct the most severe cases of teeth misalignment. It will, however, address minor and moderate cases of:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Crowding
  • Spacing
  • Misalignment

How much does Invisalign cost?

When considering any kind of cosmetic procedure, cost is an important factor. The cost range anywhere from $3,500 to $5,000 or more depending on the type of treatment you need and the length of time to complete the treatment. After your consultation with Dr. Evola, he will be able to tell you exactly what the cost will be.

Does insurance cover the cost?

If you have orthodontic coverage in your dental plan, then most likely at least some portion of Invisalign will be covered. Because we understand that cost is a factor for most people, we offer third party financing that's designed specifically for medical and dental expenses.

I have problems with TMJ. Can I use Invisalign to straighten my teeth?

Certain appliances like Invisalign can exacerbate conditions like TMJ. Your best bet is to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Evola. He can evaluate the severity of your TMJ and then make treatment suggestions.
