Invisalign Q & A

Evan Cohen DDS, PC

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign corrects orthodontic issues without using traditional metal braces. This innovative cosmetic technology uses plastic aligners to straighten your teeth.

The name Invisalign refers to the transparent, plastic material used to construct the removable aligners that straighten your teeth. The design of your aligners is customized to your mouth to ensure a precise fit.

Every couple of weeks, as your teeth gently shift and correct, Dr. Cohen refits your teeth with new Invisalign aligners. Once your teeth have moved into their optimal positions, a retainer maintains your new smile.

Who can benefit from Invisalign?

Older teens and adults can benefit from Invisalign. Young teens and children aren't eligible for this treatment because their mouth is still changing.

What dental issues does Invisalign help?

Invisalign is an extremely versatile method for straightening teeth and correcting various orthodontic problems:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Open bite
  • Crossbite
  • Bite irregularities

Notably, extreme crookedness or dental abnormalities disqualify you from being a candidate for Invisalign. In this case, you and Dr. Cohen explore other options.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign is a popular choice for older teens and adults because the cost of this simple treatment is comparable to traditional braces. Other benefits of Invisalign include:

  • Clear, plastic, nearly invisible aligners
  • Removable aligners make eating and brushing easy
  • No wires or metal to irritate your mouth

Is Invisalign expensive?

Invisalign is similar in cost to traditional metal braces. Because Invisalign is a corrective orthodontic treatment, many insurance plans cover some or all of the expense.

Dr. Cohen’s knowledgeable team guides you through your financial options and insurance coverage to maximize your benefits. As a service to Dr. Cohen’s patients, his staff processes and files your insurance paperwork for you.

If you’re ready to straighten your crooked teeth or correct a bite irregularity, Dr. Cohen provides personal consultations to help you determine if Invisalign is right for you. To determine if Invisalign is right for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Cohen so he can evaluate your mouth, teeth, and overall oral health.
