Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a system of clear, removable aligners that straighten your teeth and properly align your bite. Just like braces, your aligners work by placing a small but constant amount of pressure on your teeth that gradually push them to a better position in your gums. 

Unlike braces, Invisalign aligners are comfortable, convenient, and discreet, which is why 7 million people worldwide have used the system to straighten their smile.

 

What does Invisalign treat?

Invisalign corrects many of the same orthodontic issues that braces typically treat, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth

 

Invisalign also fixes issues with the alignment of your jaw like:

  • Open bite
  • Crossbite
  • Underbite
  • Overbite

 

You can also get Invisalign for more cosmetically focused goals like generally straightening your teeth or improving minor misalignments.

 

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign is a state-of-the-art orthodontic system, so when it comes to straightening your smile, it has a number of advantages over traditional metal braces:

Comfort

Your aligners are made from plastic that’s smooth, flexible, and BPA-free, so they won’t tear up the inside of your mouth like the brackets and wires of braces typically do.

Convenience

Your aligners are removable, so you won’t have to change your diet during your treatment or invest in special tools to keep your teeth clean. You just take out your aligners whenever you eat, brush, and floss, and put them back in when you’re done.

Discretion

Your aligners are clear and virtually invisible when you have them on, so you won’t have to worry about the mouthful-of-metal look that you get with braces. Nobody will know you’re straightening your teeth unless you tell them, so you can smile with confidence all throughout your treatment.

 

How do I get started with Invisalign?

First, your dentist makes a virtual model of your smile from an impression or a 3D scan of your mouth. 

They manipulate that virtual model to map out all of the steps your teeth need to take in order to move into proper alignment. Each of those steps is then turned into a clear aligner, one for your upper teeth and one for your lower teeth.

You wear your aligners every day for at least 22 hours per day, taking them out only to brush, floss, and eat. Every two weeks, you move on to the next set of aligners in your series. 

Once you go through all of your aligners, your teeth will be properly aligned and your smile will be healthy and beautiful.
