On the journey to a straighter smile, Invisalign is one of the options patients often mention. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are clear ones requiring no metal brackets or bands to adjust your smile’s alignment. We’ll cover some common questions about Invisalign to help you determine if clear aligner therapy might be a good choice for you.

1. Is Invisalign Covered by Insurance?

Invisalign is often covered by insurance in the same way as traditional braces. Checking your summary of benefits can tell you exactly how much of your treatment is covered. Most insurance covers a percentage of orthodontic treatments, with you being responsible for the rest.

2. How Does Invisalign Work?

The aligners place specific pressure on your smile to move them into place over time. Your doctor will monitor your progress and the health of your teeth and jaw throughout the therapy.

3. Does Invisalign Contain Bisphenol A(BPA)?

While you should always consult your physician before undergoing new medical procedures, Invisalign aligners do not contain latex, parabens, phthalates, glutaraldehyde, epoxy, or Bisphenol A(BPA).

4. Are My Food Options Restricted While Using Invisalign?

No, there are no food limitations while using Invisalign clear aligners. That said, removing your aligners before eating and drinking is necessary to ensure their efficacy and longevity.

5. Does Invisalign Make Retainers?

After you’ve completed your aligner therapy, you’ll need to wear a retainer to maintain your new smile. Invisalign provides its own line of retainers, “Vivera.”
