Less Treatment Time
A typical Invisalign case takes about a year from start to finish. You'll see your doctor every month or two to see how you're progressing. Every few visits, you'll be given additional aligners to continue your treatment. Commonly, the number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but treatment time and the number of aligners will vary from case to case.

Benefits of Invisalign
“When Should I Start Invisalign”
When it comes to choosing Invisalign to straighten your teeth and improve your bite, there are many benefits that come with this type of treatment, including:
- No irritation to the soft tissues of your mouth because of the aligner’s smooth feel
- Faster treatment time in comparison to traditional metal braces
- Invisible treatment that is undetected by others
- Shorter appointment times at the dentist because there are no wire adjustments needed
- Flexibility to remove your aligners when eating and drinking, making it more enjoyable and easier to eat the foods you love
Indications for Invisalign
Invisalign is considered to be one of the most versatile orthodontic treatment solutions. It can address any of the following problems listed below:
When teeth sit too close to each other, this can pose a problem when trying to floss or brush between them. As bacteria and food particles become trapped, it increases your risk for tooth decay and gum disease. Invisalign works to create necessary space between your teeth, bringing your smile into proper alignment and improving your oral health.
Spaces Between Teeth
Unlike crowded teeth, having too much space between your teeth can pose a similar problem. Tooth decay, gum disease, and cavities can develop should food become lodged in these gaps; however, with Invisalign, the clear aligners can create a shift and bring your teeth closer together, eliminating the gap and creating a more uniform smile.
Whether you have an overbite, underbite, crossbite, or open bite, Invisalign can move your smile in such a way that your teeth properly line up, decreasing any pain or discomfort you might have felt due to an improper bite alignment.
Is Invisalign For Me?
“When Should I Start Invisalign”
Invisalign can be used to treat the vast majority of common problems for adults and teens. Whether your smile needs minor improvements or more extensive adjustments, Invisalign can certainly help. It's successful in treating overly crowded or widely spaced teeth. It can also relieve more complex issues, including overbites, underbites, and even crossbites. In fact, an Invisalign Certified orthodontist or dentist can use Invisalign clear aligners in all or part of just about any treatment plan.
Understanding the Cost of Invisalign
Reading through the above information – from the benefits to the indications – is a great place to start if you are interested in getting Invisalign in Bergenfield. Now, you may have one important question on your mind, “How much does it cost?” Since price is an important factor to consider when determining which orthodontic treatment is best for you, keep reading for the answer!
Factors that Affect the Cost of Invisalign
Each patient is different, which means different factors are considered when determining the cost of Invisalign in Bergenfield. While there is no all-encompassing answer when it comes to price, there are a few things that will influence the final cost across the board, such as:
- The severity of the orthodontic issue (ex: minor misalignment vs. severe crowding).
- If your dental insurance plan includes orthodontic treatment.
- The number of aligners you will need throughout treatment.
- How committed you are to wearing your clear braces.
- Your age.
Invisalign vs. Smile Direct Club™: Which Costs More?
At first glance Smile Direct Club may seem like the better option for your wallet. However, while treatment may start at around $2,000, it is important to take into account the upfront and overall cost. For example, complications and mistakes from DIY orthodontics can result in more money spent on restorative and cosmetic care. As a result, you can end up saving a significant amount of money by starting with Invisalign.
Does Dental Insurance Cover Invisalign?
Typically, dental insurance providers don’t cover Invisalign since it isn’t “medically necessary.” With that being said, it’s always a good idea to double-check! Since our knowledgeable team is extremely familiar with dental plans, they can handle all of the paperwork to maximize your coverage. From there, they can provide you with an estimate of your out-of-pocket expenses and discuss the financial options available to you.

Using Acceledent with Invisalign®
How does AcceleDent Aura work?
By inserting the mouthpiece – fitted around your existing orthodontics – and turning on the Activator for 20 minutes every day, AcceleDent Aura can speed up tooth movement by using SoftPulse Technology®. Faster tooth movement may decrease the duration of your orthodontic treatment and can even help to make your orthodontic appliances more comfortable.
Is AcceleDent Aura safe?
Yes. AcceleDent with SoftPulse Technology® has been demonstrated safe and reliable in U.S. clinical trials.
How is the orthodontic treatment accelerated?
Your orthodontics work on their own by moving your teeth in specific directions. AcceleDent Aura uses SoftPulse Technology® to generate small vibrations, or micropulses, which enhances the movements directed by your orthodontics, allowing for faster tooth movement.
If you’re considering Invisalign in Bergenfield to straighten your smile, it is likely that you have a few questions before you move forward with treatment. The team at Washington Dental Associates want you to feel comfortable and confident about your decision, so we’ve compiled a list of some of the most common frequently asked questions.
How do I keep my aligners clean?
As one of the great benefits of using Invisalign, keeping them clean is easy to do. All that is required is a toothbrush, clear soap, and lukewarm water. By thoroughly cleaning your aligners, you can remove dried saliva and any bacteria that has accumulated. Just remember never to use hot water, as it can warp the plastic and ruin your aligners.
How often will I be required to see the dentist with Invisalign?
There are fewer visits required when choosing to wear Invisalign aligners. The reason is that there are no wires to adjust like there is with traditional metal braces. Your dentist will want to review your progress along the way and will determine a proper schedule before beginning treatment. These visits will be quick and easy, requiring that we simply review your progress and make sure everything is moving in the right direction.
What can I expect when I’m done with treatment?
It will be necessary for you to wear a retainer once you are finished with Invisalign. The reason is that teeth have a good memory and can easily shift back into their original position. You need something to hold them in place, which is why you’ll need to wear a retainer. It will be up to your dentist as to how long you will wear it but typically, you’ll be expected to wear it all the time in the beginning. After a short while, you may be able to transition to wearing it only at night while you sleep.
