Invisalign® Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign clear aligners allow you to straighten your teeth and build confidence in your smile without the need for traditional, intrusive braces. Without using metal brackets or wires, these aligners gently move your teeth, sliding them into the optimal positions for your jaw, bite, and smile.

What issues can Invisalign correct?

Invisalign clear aligners can address a wide range of orthodontic needs. Dentists can now fix conditions that just a few years ago would have required metal braces with Invisalign. Some of the most common issues these aligners correct include overbites and teeth that are:

  • Crooked
  • Crowded
  • Gapped
  • Protruding

If you had traditional braces, but your teeth shifted because you failed to wear your retainer, Invisalign can help.

How does Invisalign work?

The Invisalign process uses 3D technology to create a model of your teeth and jaw then build a sequence of clear aligners to straighten your smile.

Every day, you wear your Invisalign aligners for 20-22 hours. They’re comfortable, and some patients even forget they’re wearing them.

Each set of aligners puts gentle pressure on specific teeth, encouraging them to move slowly. Every week or so, you change the aligners, and your teeth move a little more. Over time, the teeth shift into their goal position, and you’re left with a straight and confident smile.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Beyond straightening your teeth and giving you a smile you’ll want to show off, Invisalign aligners have a variety of benefits.

Because you can remove the aligners, you’re not restricted on what you can eat and drink, the way you are with traditional braces. You can also maintain optimal oral hygiene, as you can brush and floss daily. Other reasons to choose Invisalign include:

  • It’s barely visible
  • Treatment time is up to 50% faster than braces
  • Optimized, predictable tooth movement
  • Soft, comfortable SmartTrackⓇ material
  • Improves the health of your teeth and gums
