Q: Does Insurance cover

A: Because medical benefits differ significantly from policy to policy, each patient should review their coverage. However, if a patient has orthodontic coverage,
Invisalign® should be covered to the same extent as conventional braces.

q: how does invisalign® effectively move teeth?

like brackets and archwires, invisalign® aligners move teeth through the appropriate placement of controlled force on the teeth. the principal difference is that invisalign® not only controls forces, but also controls the timing of the force application. at each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move, and these movements are determined by the orthodontic treatment plan for that particular stage. this results in an efficient force delivery system.

q: will tmj affect invisalign® treatment?

a: tmj refers to the temporomandibular, or jaw, joint. individuals can have a number of problems with the jaw joint, some of which can be aggravated by appliances and treatments like invisalign®. to find out if your tmj problem will adversely impact dental treatment, consult your invisalign®-certified doctor.
