Invisalign Q&A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an innovative treatment system that allows you to realign and enhance your smile with transparent, removable appliances. Gone are the days when bulky metal braces were your only option. Now, you can achieve the smile you’ve always wanted without uncomfortable brackets.

The clear aligners are FDA-approved and made of a flexible thermoplastic material. When you wear the custom-made aligners, your teeth gradually shift into position according to a comprehensive treatment plan developed by your dentist.

How does Invisalign straighten my smile?

After you and your dentist decide on Invisalign, you create a detailed treatment plan to move your teeth gradually into place.

Once your custom-made aligners arrive, you need to wear them for at least 20-22 hours a day. However, you can take them out to eat and brush your teeth.

You’ll receive a new set of aligners every few weeks. Each set of aligners is slightly different, steadily moving of your teeth into their optimal position little by little. Since there are no metal brackets to adjust, you only need to come in every few months for checkups to monitor your progress. Your office visits during Invisalign treatment are short and straightforward.

On average, Invisalign transforms your smile in about 12-18 months.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

With Invisalign, you can smile with confidence instead of worrying about how a mouthful of metal affects your appearance. Whether you’re a teen with an upcoming school dance or an adult embarrassed by the prospect of wearing braces at work, Invisalign won’t get in the way.

Also, since the aligners are removable, brushing your teeth and flossing are much easier and you won’t be troubled constantly with food in your braces. In fact, you can eat anything you want while you use Invisalign.

How do I take care of my Invisalign aligners?

Make sure to wash your aligners in warm water, but don’t use water that is too hot because it can bend the plastic. You can also order a more thorough cleaning system directly from Invisalign.
