Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that straightens your teeth with a series of clear, removable aligners. It’s a modern alternative to traditional metal braces that offers the same results without many of the unwanted hassles. 

Your aligners are custom-fitted and designed from an impression of your teeth, so they’re comfortable to wear. Once in place, your aligners exert a constant gentle pressure on your teeth that gradually pushes them towards your target alignment.

How does Invisalign improve my smile?

Invisalign treats many of the same conditions that traditional metal braces correct, including:

  • Crowding
  • Crooked teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth

Invisalign can also effectively treat malocclusions, or problems with your bite, like:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite

Many people also use Invisalign to cosmetically improve their smile by generally straightening their teeth.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

As a newer technology and modern orthodontic treatment, Invisalign has several advantages over traditional braces, like:

Comfort

Your aligners are made from a smooth, flexible, BPA-free plastic, so they won’t tear up the inside of your cheeks like metal braces do.

Convenience

You can remove your aligners whenever you need to brush, floss, or eat. That means you don’t have to invest in special tools and learn complicated techniques to keep your teeth clean during your treatment. Simply remove your aligners, brush, floss, and eat as normal, and put them back in afterward.

Discretion

Your aligners are virtually invisible when you wear them, so you won’t have to worry about the mouthful-of-metal look that’s inescapable with traditional metal braces.

What are the steps to an Invisalign treatment?

First, your dentist takes an impression of your mouth. He uploads that impression to computer software that turns it into a virtual model of your smile and analyzes that model to determine all of the steps that your teeth need to take in order to achieve better alignment.

Each of those steps is then turned into a set of aligners. You wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day, every day, and you move on to the next set in your series every two weeks. The number of aligners in a series varies depending on the unique needs of your smile, but most patients only need 20 to 30 aligners in order to reach their target alignment.
