Foundations Orthodontics is a Certified Invisalign® Provider
Your Invisalign treatment will consist of a series of aligners that you switch out about every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. Since your Invisalign system is custom-made for your teeth and your teeth only, with a plan devised by you and our doctors, you know you’ll end up with a smile that truly fits. If you’re ready for a smile that transforms your appearance, Invisalign may be your answer.
Here’s how it works:
If Dr. Bennett determines that you are a candidate for this system, we will take an impression of your teeth and fabricate a series of active aligners, custom-made for you. Each appliance is made of lightweight, clear plastic in the shape of your dental arches.
You’ll wear each appliance for 2 weeks.The nearly invisible appliances are so easy to wear and talk with, few people even know they have them on. And in just a few months, you’ll be enjoying your beautiful new smile. Whether you’re in school, on the go with family, a professional in the public eye or active in sports, Invisalign can easily fit into your busy life.
It’s so convenient
Each aligner works to straighten your teeth in small incremental movements, each getting you progressively closer to your new smile.Find out if you’re a candidate for this nearly invisible no-braces treatment. Ask Dr. Bennett today!
Dr. Bennett will be able to determine your cost based on the specifics of your individual needs. These factors can include the complexity of your case, how long your treatment will take and your orthodontic insurance coverage.
What about insurance?
Many dental insurance plans cover Invisalign just as they would other orthodontic treatments like braces. Dr. Bennett’s office or your insurance carrier can help you to determine the exact coverage for your treatment.
What are my other options?
If your insurance does not cover all of your treatment costs or if cost is a concern for you, talk to us about payment options – we offer flexible and affordable monthly payment plans, some with no interest. Many of our patients take advantage of our third party financing partners including Care Credit to spread their treatment costs over a longer time. You can also apply for these online before you come into the office.
What about flexible spending accounts?
Many companies offer their employees FSA’s. An FSA allows you to set aside a portion of your paycheck in order to pay for qualified medical expenses.
The money you elect to contribute is deducted from your pay and transferred directly into your FSA and therefore, is not subject to payroll taxes. After incurring eligible medical costs, you can then submit your receipt for reimbursement from your FSA provider.
Since Invisalign falls under orthodontic treatment, these costs can qualify for FSA reimbursement. If your company offers an FSA and you know you would like to use it to pay for Invisalign, plan ahead and consult your benefits department. When it comes time to enroll in your program, you can authorize a deduction for the appropriate amount for your Invisalign treatment and save money while doing it, since it is a pre-tax contribution. It is an easy and convenient way to get the smile you want.

I’m so glad I made the investment to go with aligners rather than metal braces. I’ve heard stories of people having food stuck in their metal braces, and I didn’t want to go through that. It’s so easy – all I have to do is remove my aligners when I eat.
At first, I was skeptical about whether or not to use plastic aligners to straighten my teeth, but I am very glad I decided to make the investment. In just about nine months my teeth were straightened using the clear, comfortable, and easy-to-remove aligners. I’m a busy guy, and using Invisalign fit right into my lifestyle.
I wanted my teeth straighter, but I didn’t want to be in pain. My aligners are so comfortable, compared to the metal braces I had when I was a kid, that sometimes I forget I have them on.
Everybody comments on my new smile, even when I’m wearing the aligners. Plus, I can remove them at any time, so they don’t affect my lifestyle.
Ione, Age 58, Administrative Assistant The reason I went with Invisalign is because I’m not a kid anymore. I didn’t want to look like a kid with braces on, and have the hassle of keeping them clean and all that. There is a lot of work to keeping your teeth in good health when you have (traditional) braces.
Daniel, Age 38, Chauffeur I definitely smile a lot more. Even though I’m still in treatment, it has given me more confidence. It’s given me something to look forward to. I feel good about myself. I feel good that I have taken the steps to get these braces.
Breanna, Age 20, Waitress & Student What I like best about Invisalign is the fact that I can take them out and floss and brush my teeth and put them back in. So it’s not like I’m working around all this metal in my mouth, trying to get the toothbrush in there and floss in there.
Gina, Age 31, Analyst Relations I would not have gone the regular braces route. The reason for that is that I am in a customer-facing position. I’m in the hi-tech industry, with a lot of people around me that are young and hip and moving and shaking. To be in management, in a hitech company with a mouthful of braces in front of customers and prospects and other executive strategic alliance partners, it just wasn’t an option.
William, Age 31, Investment Broker At my age, to have the big metal train tracks in your mouth, I just figured, in person with people, I just wouldn’t feel as comfortable as I would with something that was truly invisible. I really believe in the product. I’m kind of a walking, talking billboard for it.
Vivian, Age 53, Nurse I am absolutely, positively thrilled. The fact that I was done with it in less than a year, and really had no inconveniences whatsoever, makes me wonder why I even hesitated.
