Below are some myths about Invisalign—debunked and explained.
Myth: only minor teeth issues can be treated with Invisalign.
Truth: Invisalign can treat a wide range of problems, from overbites, to underbites, to severely crooked teeth.
Myth: It’s expensive!
Truth: The cost is very similar to that of traditional braces, plus, as we mentioned above insurance companies often cover the treatment.
Myth: if I get Invisalign for my child, I won’t know if he or she is wearing it often enough.
Truth: Invisalign aligners are made with small blue dots, called compliance indicators, which slowly disappear as the aligners are worn. They provide a practical visual check for parents and children to know that they’re getting results.

Truth: Any cosmetic dentist worth their weight in fillings can effectively treat a patient with Invisalign.
Myth: Treatment takes longer than traditional braces.
