Are Orthodontic Services Covered By My Insurance?

Every insurance plan is different, in fact many insurance policies are customized to your needs. That said, while your insurance might have provisions for orthodontic services you will need to see if it specifically covers aligners like Invisalign or ClearConnect. If your insurance doesn’t provide orthodontic coverage, if the coverage is limited, or you need other payment options, we can help. We provide financing options like CareCredit that allow patients to get cosmetic, restorative, and orthodontic treatments in a payment plan that works for them.

Is Invisalign Better Than Traditional Braces?

Invisalign aligners have many benefits over traditional braces. But there are some cases where tradtional braces might be better suited. For example an orthodontist might recommend traditional braces for a more complex orthodontic solution. Invisalign is perfect for addressing:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Open bite

Clear aligners use a series of custom-made aligners trays. The aligner trays are made to your unique specifications. Worn over your teeth for two to three weeks, aligners slowly guide your teeth into a straighter alignment. Because clear aligners are removable, you can take them out during meals and social events. You can also remove your aligners to enjoy contact sports, running, martial arts, or other physical activities. With clear aligners, you never have to sacrifice your favorite foods or active lifestyle!

Be sure to schedule a consultation with our team to determine if Invisalign or ClearCorrect is right for you or your teen!

How Do I Care For My Clear Aligners?

Unlike braces, caring for your clear aligners is simple! Be sure to rinse and brush them every day. Brush twice and floss daily to keep your smile strong and bright during your orthodontic treatment.
