Frequently Asked Questions

Invisalign

What is Invisalign?

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.

What does Invisalign cost?

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.

Does insurance cover Invisalign?

Typically, an insurance policy that covers traditional braces also covers Invisalign to the same extent.

Do you offer payment plans?

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

Does your office direct bill?

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.

Do you follow the fee guide?

Yes our office recently lowered all of our fees to be in line with the current Alberta Dental Association & College fee guide.

I have _______ insurance how much am I covered?

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.

What is co-payment?

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%.

How much does a routine cleaning cost?

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.
