Invisalign FAQs

Get the Answers to Your Top Questions

After years of putting your beautiful smile on hold, you are ready to invest in a confident future with the preferred orthodontic system for adults. Invisalign in Canton will correct your bite and alignment concerns using a nearly invisible solution. Although you look forward to starting your journey to improved self-esteem, Dr. Robison knows you have several questions about the treatment. There is no need to worry. Here are the answers to the most common questions about the clear aligners.

Do I need to wear them all the time?

A leading appeal to Invisalign is the fact nothing is bonded to your teeth. This makes the aligners removable, but that does not mean you only need to wear them when you want. Instead, your dentist in Canton, Dr. Robison, recommends you wear them for at least 22 hours per day. If you do not wear them correctly, it will slow your progress and add unnecessary delays to your treatment plan.

You should only take your aligners out when eating or drinking anything except water. You must also remove them when brushing, flossing, and caring for your aligners.

How long will my treatment take?

On average, it takes about 12 months to finish your series of aligners. The duration of your treatment varies depending on several factors, such as the complexity of your orthodontic concerns and if you follow your treatment plan correctly.

Does my insurance cover Invisalign?

Now, more dental insurance policies provide coverage for Invisalign. Although it will not cover the entire cost of the treatment, your insurance benefits may pay for a portion of their expense. We work on your behalf with your insurance company to maximize the value of your benefits to reduce the amount you need to pay out-of-pocket.

We accept a variety of payment options, including third-party financing with CareCredit to cover any remaining expense. We will help you find the payment options you need to keep your new smile affordable.

What happens if I break an aligner?

The aligners are made from comfortable, yet durable material. Unfortunately, an aligner can break. If an aligner is damaged, it is best to contact our office right away. If the break occurred after about 1 week of wearing the aligner, Dr. Robison may advise you to move forward with the next one in the series.
