How Invisalign Works
Sleek and discreet, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gently shift the teeth over time. Basically, you’ll wear each tray for 7-14 days, and for 20-22 hours a day. No one will notice your aligners unless you tell them, and whenever it’s time to eat or brush, you can simply take the trays out. It’s the perfect solution for today’s image-conscious adults.
Indications for Invisalign
Fortunately, Invisalign is both discreet and versatile. In other words, the clear aligners can reliably fix multiple orthodontic concerns, including:
If your teeth overlap, then bacteria, plaque, and food particles can get trapped in the crevices, negatively impacting your oral health in the process. With Invisalign’s clear aligners, our Cumberland dentists can gently guide your teeth into proper alignment.
Gaps Between Teeth
Spaced-out teeth are another common orthodontic problem. Once again, Invisalign is up for the task! With a custom series of clear aligners, we can gradually close the gaps in as little as six months. So, you may not have to wait long to achieve your smile goals with Invisalign!
Overbites and crossbites are just two of many bite problems. With Invisalign’s clear aligners as well as other orthodontic accessories (like rubber bands and buttons), we can create a custom treatment plan designed to improve the position of your teeth as well as the alignment of your bite.

Does Wearing Invisalign Hurt?
No orthodontic treatment is completely pain-free; however, that’s a sign your aligners are working. They will apply gentle pressure to your teeth to move them in small increments, which can make your mouth tender after first getting Invisalign. It can also occur when switching to the next set of aligners in your series, but discomfort will be less frequent as you progress through your treatment. You can manage any tenderness with an OTC pain reliever and eating soft foods. You won’t have to worry about any irritation to the insides of your cheeks or lips because there aren’t any brackets or wires. Your aligners will be smooth, and each one will fit like a glove, so there’s no slipping or irritation.
Is Invisalign Cheaper Than Metal Braces?
Every situation differs, but Invisalign can cost about the same as metal braces. Many factors will affect the cost of your treatment, like the complexity of the tooth movements needed. Your cosmetic dentist in Cumberland will examine your mouth and create a personalized treatment plan. A member of our office will review your estimate and discuss your payment options.
What Foods Can I Eat with Invisalign?
You don’t have to worry about skipping your favorite foods because Invisalign is removable. There aren’t any dietary restrictions, but you must take your aligners out when having anything except water. Keep them in their storage case to avoid misplacing them. Brush your teeth and rinse your aligners before putting them back in your mouth.
How Long Do I Need to Wear My Aligners Every Day?
You must commit to wearing your aligners for at least 22 hours per day or you can add delays to your treatment timeline. As a rule of thumb, you should only remove your aligners when eating, drinking, and brushing and flossing your teeth.
Can I Use My Dental Insurance for Invisalign?
Dental plans that include orthodontics may cover some of the expenses for Invisalign. Your consultation, diagnostic services, and preliminary procedures may be included in your dental benefits. After meeting your annual deductible, your insurance may pay a flat amount for your treatment, which generally ranges from $500 to $2,000. We will work on your behalf with your dental insurance to keep your treatment affordable. We accept various payment methods for any out-of-pocket expenses, like CareCredit.
