Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic technology that uses a series of clear plastic aligners to move your teeth into alignment and create a perfect smile. The system is a popular alternative to traditional metal braces because it provides a more comfortable, convenient, and discreet method for giving you a beautifully straight smile.

What conditions does Invisalign treat?

Invisalign treats many of the same orthodontic concerns as braces, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite


You can even use Invisalign for purely cosmetic purposes if you already have a healthy alignment but want to make your teeth more straight or even.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign is a modern and revolutionary technology boasting several advantages over traditional metal braces, including:

Comfort

The smooth and flexible plastic of your aligners won’t painfully scrape the inside of your mouth, unlike the wires and brackets in braces.

Convenience

Unlike braces, which are permanently affixed to your teeth, your Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can take them out whenever you need to eat or clean your teeth. This means you won’t have to change your diet or invest in any special tools to keep your teeth clean during your treatment.

Discretion

Your aligners are clear and virtually disappear when you wear them, so you won’t have to worry about an awkward appearance during your treatment. This is a big improvement over braces, which give you the dreaded mouthful-of-metal look.

How do I get started with Invisalign?

To start straightening your teeth with Invisalign, book a consultation at Advanced Smile Dentistry. Your dentist takes an impression of your smile used to design your treatment plan, which maps out exactly how your teeth need to shift for perfect alignment.

A special Invisalign lab uses your treatment plan to design your aligners, which come in a multi-set series. You wear each set of aligners in your series for 20–22 hours a day, every day for two weeks before moving on to the next set in your series.

Treatment time varies depending on the severity of your condition, but most people can get through their entire series of aligners in 12–18 months. You might even begin noticing results as early as the first few weeks of their treatment.
