Read on to learn more about this popular invisible braces option and how it can work for your smile.

FAQs About Invisalign Clear Braces for Adults

How much do Invisalign braces cost?

Of course, cost will vary depending on the dental health and insurance plan of each individual, but in general, Invisalign braces cost about as much as traditional braces. Many dental insurance plans cover Invisalign clear braces, just as they would cover treatment with metal braces. At Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we also offer affordable payment plans through CareCredit to help you manage the cost of Invisalign.

Will I still be able to eat all my favorite foods?

With traditional metal braces, you are often restricted when it comes to the types of foods you can eat. This isn’t the case with Invisalign — you can still enjoy all of your favorite meals and treats. Simply remove your clear braces at meal time and place them back in when you’re through eating. What’s more, oral hygiene is a breeze — no need to struggle to remove food from brackets and wires.

Are the aligner trays comfortable?

Made from smooth plastic and custom-fit to your mouth, Invisalign’s removable aligner trays are extremely comfortable, unlike traditional metal braces.

How will these clear braces for adults affect my day-to-day life?

Because the Invisalign system is virtually invisible and completely removable, you won’t have to put your life on hold just to get a straight smile. Play your favorite sports, deliver presentations at work, and do all of your other normal activities with confidence, just as you did before clear braces.
