Below are answers to frequently asked questions about Invisalign® in Oregon City:
What are the benefits of Invisalign® compared to other options?
The beauty of Invisalign® is the fact that the trays are virtually invisible. You wear these trays all day and all night, and the only time you take them out is to eat and clean your teeth.
Invisalign® treatment is typically quicker than traditional braces and has the large benefit in that it does not involve cumbersome metal wires or bands. Here at Ponderosa Dental Arts, we have trays delivered every 2 weeks as it is a common cosmetic dental service that we offer.
Who are the best candidates to wear Invisalign®?
Most of our patients chose Invisalign® because they didn’t wear their retainers after they had braces. Over time their teeth started moving back to where they were before they had braces, and Invisalign® provided a quick solution that moved their teeth back to where they were set after having braces. Other cases that are easily corrected with Invisalign® include minor to moderate crowding of the teeth, especially on the lower front teeth.
How much do they cost and are they covered by insurance?
Invisalign® can range anywhere from $3,400 – $7,100, according to the manufacturer (https://www.invisalign.com/invisalign-cost), with the average price of Invisalign® here in Oregon City falling approximately midway along this range. Often times your orthodontic coverage on your dental insurance will cover the treatment, and can be up to $3,500 of coverage.
How long would I have to wear them for?
A typical course for Invisalign® runs between 2 months and one year, with the average time of wearing them being 6 months.
Are they easy to put on and remove?
The Invisalign® trays are easily placed in and are easy to remove. We ask you only remove them to eat and clean your teeth.
How would I keep them clean?
Rinse them with water and brush the insides with a toothbrush once a day.
