Invisalign Q & A

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign is an innovative new way to straighten teeth. It offers a great alternative to traditional teeth-straightening treatments like braces. This treatment involves wearing clear plastic aligners over your teeth to align them over time gently.

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

Is Invisalign really better than braces?

Because Invisalign is so comfortable and easy to use, it is becoming a more and more popular way to straighten teeth, particularly with young adults. Invisalign offers the following benefits over braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches:

  • Invisibility, so people see your real teeth, not a mouthful of metal
  • Comfort, so you don’t have to worry about your mouth getting cut up by pointy mental braces
  • Convenience, thanks to your ability to easily remove them whenever you need to eat, brush, or floss
  • Timing, because with Invisalign, you can expect to see results up to 50% faster than with 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
  • Relapse after braces

If you have major orthodontic and alignment issues, your dentist may recommend a different treatment. Book an appointment with Smiles Family Dental — a Diamond Plus status Invisalign provider — to find out if Invisalign is right for you.

What is involved in Invisalign treatment?

First, your teeth need to be examined by your dentist to see if Invisalign is the ideal choice for you. They might either make physical impressions of your teeth or create 3D images of them using a digital scanner. Using these images, your dentist will develop a precise treatment plan.

After that, your dentist will fit customized plastic aligners to your teeth. The aligners gently move your teeth into ideal alignment while you wear them. As your teeth move, new aligners may be made to continue progress. At the end of this process, your smile will have its new shape!
