Blue Back Dental is a proud Invisalign provider serving our patients at both our West Hartford and Avon offices. Invisalign is the first and most effective clear aligner therapy used to straighten teeth and offers a comfortable, removable, and nearly invisible alternative to braces. Patients wear the Invisalign plastic aligner for 20 hours per day for one week at a time to gradually push the teeth into the proper position.

We offer a one-on-one orthodontics consultation to answer any questions you have about the Invisalign treatment. Each patient receives care tailored to their needs on a schedule they can follow easily from the comfort of their own home.

Patients often have questions about Invisalign, how it works, how long it takes, etc., and we want to share some FAQs and answers here:

Does Invisalign really work?

YES! Invisalign’s® clear aligner 3D technology allows your doctor to plan the tooth movements that will occur while you wear the series of aligners to achieve the desired result. Invisalign’s technology has improved over recent years to reduce treatment time and allow doctors to treat more complex cases.

Does Invisalign treatment hurt?

No! The pressure that is exerted on the teeth is gradual, so tooth soreness is minimal and usually only occurs on the first day of treatment. Invisalign is also much kinder to soft tissues since it doesn’t have the brackets or wires needed for braces.

How often will I need to go to the dentist with Invisalign?

We typically see patients once a month to monitor your progress during Invisalign treatment.

How much does Invisalign treatment cost?

Treatment cost is case specific, depending on how many aligners you need to straighten your teeth, but an average case cost is around $5,000. Each Invisalign case at Blue Back Dental includes all orthodontic records ($400 value), 4 sets of Vivera Retainers ($550 value), a fixed retainer ($300 value), and in-office teeth whitening ($400 value).

Does Blue Back Dental offer financing for Invisalign treatment?

Our treatment plan coordinator will determine if you qualify for any insurance coverage. HSAs and FSAs can be used towards Invisalign treatment, and we also offer 0% financing options that allow you to spread payments out over 12, 18 or 24 months.
