Invisalign Q & A
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign offers an innovative alternative solution to traditional teeth-straightening treatments like braces. With Invisalign, you wear clear plastic aligners over your teeth to align them and shift them into place gently over time.
What are the advantages of Invisalign over braces?
Invisalign is a popular way to fix misaligned and crooked teeth due to its comfort and ease of use. Invisalign provides a vast array of benefits over traditional orthodontic methods like metal braces:
Invisalign treatments work up to 50% faster than other orthodontic techniques.
The soft plastic of the aligner trays won’t cut, poke, or irritate your mouth or gums like sharp traditional metal braces.
You can remove your aligner trays quickly whenever you need to eat, floss, or brush your teeth.
Invisalign offers discretion with clear thermoplastic aligner trays. When people look at you, they see your natural teeth instead of silver metal braces.
Why should I choose Invisalign?
Invisalign can solve an array of dental problems, like:
- Overcrowded teeth
- Spaces between teeth
- Teeth misalignment
- Rotated teeth
If you have major alignment and orthodontic issues, Invisalign might not be the right treatment for you and Dr. Danielewicz might suggest an alternative treatment. Dr. Danielewicz discusses the Invisalign process during your initial consultation to help you determine if it’s right for you.
What is involved in Invisalign treatment?
Dr. Danielewicz first assesses your teeth. To fully evaluate them, Dr. Danielewicz either creates a physical impression or digitally scans your teeth into 3D images. Dr. Danielewicz uses these images to form a personalized treatment plan that suits your specific needs.
Dr. Danielewicz then fits your customized plastic aligners to your teeth once they’ve been manufactured. As you wear them, the aligners smoothly and gently shift your teeth into perfect alignment. You can remove your aligners for eating and teeth cleaning easy, but you should make sure you wear your aligners for at least 20 hours per day for optimal results. Invisalign should stay in your mouth if you’re not brushing your teeth or eating.
Typically every two weeks or so, you return to the dental office for a new set of aligners to continue the straightening process until your smile has its new shape.
In many cases, the Invisalign process can be completed in as little as six months.
