Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

If you’re looking for a way to straighten your teeth without traditional braces, Invisalign can be a convenient and aesthetically appealing alternative. Invisalign clear aligners work to shift your teeth into a more suitable position and nobody will know you are undergoing any type of orthodontic treatment.

Whether you have extra spaces between your teeth or protruding upper or lower teeth, Invisalign can correct many orthodontic issues. The plastic aligners are virtually undetectable and are also removable, unlike traditional braces.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Proper teeth alignment not only helps you smile with confidence but also affects your overall oral health. Invisalign can straighten your teeth gradually over a period of several months and also set you up for improved oral health as your teeth become easier to clean. Straightening the teeth can close any spaces between teeth that would otherwise be at risk for attracting bacteria and germs.

Benefits of Invisalign include:

  • Removable, customized trays for an optimal fit
  • Virtually invisible compared to traditional braces
  • Improves dental hygiene habits
  • Boosts self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Allows you to eat your favorite foods

What does Invisalign treat?

Invisalign can address many common issues with the smile, ranging from mild to moderate orthodontic problems. More severe cases might require traditional braces or other orthodontic treatment. Invisalign can be very effective for treating:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overbite or underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Crowded teeth
  • Spaces and gaps between teeth
  • Misaligned bite

What does Invisalign treatment involve?

The treatment begins with a consultation to discuss treatment options. Your doctor creates a virtual diagram that shows you what your teeth will look like after Invisalign treatment and can also map out the treatment length. They take digital impressions of your teeth and send those to the lab.

Once the lab creates your aligners, you receive a series of clear, removable aligners every few weeks as your teeth start to gradually move into their new position. You need to wear these aligners for up to 22 hours per day. Once treatment is complete, you might be fitted with a retainer to help maintain results.
