Answering Your Questions About Invisalign

If you are a teen or adult who wants a straighter smile, you don’t have to suffer through metal brackets and uncomfortable wires in your mouth. Today’s modern orthodontics bring a better alternative using clear aligner therapy. Make no mistake, this discreet and comfortable treatment is no less effective than traditional orthodontics, yet it offers remarkable advantages for the average patient.

Any orthodontic treatment involves a notable investment, including Invisalign. Therefore, it is important to learn everything you can about the treatment option you are paying for. Here’s some common questions about Invisalign to help you make the right decision for you:

How does Invisalign work?
Each patient is given a series of clear plastic trays (aligners) that have been custom fabricated to help you reach your smile goals. You’ll need to wear your aligners for about 22 hours a day, only removing them for eating and brushing/flossing. Every two weeks throughout your treatment, you’ll change out your aligner trays for the next set in your treatment series. Your dentist will only need to see you about every 4 to 6 weeks to monitor your progress.
Is Invisalign painful?
The teeth movement that occurs with Invisalign is typically gentle and gradual. You may experience mild discomfort or soreness for the first day or two of a new aligner set, but this is only temporary.
What orthodontic problems does Invisalign fix?
Invisalign has been proven effective for correcting underbites, overbites and cross bites. Patients have chosen this revolutionary therapy to close wide gaps in their smile, fix crooked or crowded teeth and even improve teeth that have shifted since they wore braces as a child.
Will insurance cover Invisalign?
You’ll need to check to make sure your insurance covers orthodontic treatment, as Invisalign falls under this category of dentistry. If you are without coverage, ask about financing plans such as CareCredit and others.
Does Invisalign work faster than traditional braces?
In many cases, yes! The average treatment time for Invisalign is 12 months, compared to 18-24 months for braces.
Is Invisalign really that discreet?
Yes! The hallmark advantage of choosing Invisalign is that you can undergo orthodontics without others noticing. You may have to adjust to the extra layer of clear plastic on your teeth, but most patient do so very quickly.
Are there any special restrictions with Invisalign?
Another significant benefit of Invisalign is that you don’t have the common rules or restrictions of traditional braces. You (or your teen) can enjoy the foods you love since the aligners are easily removed for eating. In addition, you can care for your teeth and gums like normal, a welcome advantage for your oral hygiene routine as well as your smile health.

  • Dr. Morris is an excellent dentist. Her ability to relate to her patients makes her a stand-out amongst those in her profession. She practices dentistry with superior technique and care. Her staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I feel she hires only the best! One special mention: I suffer from panic attacks at times- along with claustrophobia. Dr. Morris is the first dentist I have ever had who helped calm my fears. Thus, my experience exceeded expectations! Great service!

  • Definitely would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. She has been my dentist for over 8 years! Dr. Morris is extremely personable and is serious about the completing the best care possible. Great established dental team! Very accommodating to your schedule.

  • Great and very educational experience. Compared to my last two dentists this experience blows them both out of the water. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. I had to go in for a total of four visits a few weeks apart from each other. They made me feel very comfortable the entire time and kept making sure I was pleased. Getting a deep cleaning went very smoothly. It was also brought to my attention that the way I was flossing was incorrect. And have since changed methods. I worked specifically with Dr. Morris. She was very nice, and took the time to explain things. Which is a huge plus for me. Dr. Morris and the staff members worked effortlessly together. I was comfortable enough to sit back and relax, strangely enough, while having cavities drilled and fillings put in. Billing and scheduling appointments, as well as follow up for confirmation of upcoming appointments was very easy. I will say my favorite part of the experience was how friendly of an environment the staff has created. That alone is deserving of a 5 star review, and the rest is honestly icing on the cake. I highly recommend this practice on all fronts and will continue using them!

  • I transferred from a long-term and very good relationship with my former dentist because of a move, and I was a little apprehensive about a new dentist. Dr. Morris has been great. She is friendly, patient-concerned and the office is new, comfortable and clean. Everyone seems to enjoy working there. I feel like I'm in good hands!

    Christopher P
  • Dr. Morris and her staff are very professional. Additionally, she as well as her staff have an excellent "bedside manner." The office is new and well equipped. If one has an appointment and an earlier one opens up, Dr. Morris offers it to her patients as she did with my last appointment.

    David G
  • I have never met a staff so nice and charming. This staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in Dr. Morris's Spa like office and everyone is professional and approachable too. Andrea R. explained the process of my appointment and procedures and is definitely a highly-educated and thorough dental hygenist -- SHE IS A ROCKSTAR. I'm so glad that Dr. Morris and her dental team have been my "go-to" for the last 5 years, and I wont be going anywhere else! Overall - A++ Dr. Morris...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

  • I've been a patient of Dr. Mitzi Morris for many years, and recommend her without reservation. The office is modern. clean and spacious. The staff has always been welcoming and very helpful. And the women who work for her as dental technicians are fantastic; they do a professional and effective deep cleaning, but with a careful, gentle touch. It is clear to me that Dr. Morris reads her professional journals and upgrades her practice to stay very current with the latest best practices in dentistry. (I have had some dentists who stopped updating their practices after leaving dental school!) With Dr. Morris you can count on receiving the very latest dental technology. Her prices are very fair, and I have never been surprised by an unexpected cost or had problems with insurance not covering services rendered.

    Bruce C
  • I have never experienced an office so down to earth, so outgoing and so willing to satisfy. If you've grown to dread the dentist then lay down your sword and give this office a shot.
