Frequently Asked Questions
The Invisalign system is an orthodontic treatment that corrects malocclusion with a series of custom-made, nearly invisible aligners that are comfortable to wear, and removable for meals and normal brushing and flossing.
The cost of Invisalign is based on the complexity of your case and the length of treatment required. The initial consult appointment is free of charge. At that time we will take a digital scan of your teeth, photos, and xrays and from those will be able to provide you with more details.
Typically, an insurance policy that covers traditional braces also covers Invisalign to the same extent.
Yes, our office does offer payment plans for Invisalign. Typically we collect 1/3 of the total amount upfront as a deposit and then from there we take monthly payments for the remaining amount.
Insurance / Billing questions
Yes we do. We also offer the option for you to pay in full and get reimbursed by your insurance if you prefer to collect the credit card points.
Yes our office recently lowered all of our fees to be in line with the current Alberta Dental Association & College fee guide.
Your coverage is determined by your individual coverage. Two people could have Sunlife insurance but have different coverage. In most cases your insurance will provide you with a booklet or breakdown of your insurance coverage online.
We can submit a pre-treatment plan to your insurance to see what will be covered. Some insurance companies will give us a breakdown right away, while others will mail the information to you, the member.
Co-payment is the portion of the bill that is your responsibility to pay. If you have 80% coverage your co-payment would be the remaining 20%.
The cost of a cleaning varies by patient as it is time based. If there is a lot of build up, it will take longer to remove and therefore it would cost more and the less buildup there is to remove, the less it will cost. If you maintain your oral health on a daily basis and visit your hygienist on a regular basis, the cost of your cleanings should remain consistent.
