Invisalign Q & A

Invisalign provides an attractive alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments like braces. It is a revolutionary new way to straighten teeth. This treatment involves wearing clear plastic aligners over your teeth to align them over time gently. 

You need to wear them at least 20 hours per day for the ideal results, but the aligners are removable for teeth cleaning and easy eating. While you’re not eating or brushing your teeth, the Invisalign aligners should remain in your mouth. 

Why might Invisalign be a better option for you?

More and more young adults are choosing Invisalign thanks to its ease of use and comfortability. Curious about why Invisalign might be better than braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches? Check out these benefits:

  • Invisibility, so when people see you, they see your real teeth, not a mouthful of metal
  • Comfort, because the smooth plastic reduces the risk of mouth irritation caused by sharp metal braces
  • Convenience, with the ability to immediately remove them whenever you need to eat, floss, or brush your teeth
  • Timing, because consistent Invisalign treatments work up to 50% quicker than other orthodontic techniques

Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign can solve mild to moderate dental misalignments, like:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Teeth misalignment after braces

Your dentist may recommend an alternative treatment if you have major orthodontic and alignment issues. The best way to find out if Invisalign is right for you is by scheduling an appointment.

What can I expect from Invisalign treatment?

Your dentist will first examine your teeth to determine whether Invisalign is the best treatment method for you. He might either make physical impressions of your teeth or create 3-D images of them using a digital scanner. Your dentist will use these to develop a unique treatment plan for you.

Then your dentist customizes clear, plastic aligners that fit your teeth. The aligners will gradually move your teeth into their proper positions as you wear them. As your teeth begin to shift, new aligners may be made. At the end of this process, your smile will have its new shape!
