Invisalign Q & A

Edgewater Dental Group

What does Invisalign involve?

Invisalign is an innovative new way to straighten teeth. It offers a great alternative to traditional teeth-straightening treatments like braces. Your teeth are progressively aligned over time thanks to clear, plastic aligners that fit over your teeth.

It’s best to wear the aligners for at least 20 hours per day, but they can be removed for easy eating and teeth cleaning. While you’re not eating or brushing your teeth, the Invisalign aligners should remain in your mouth.

What are the benefits of Invisalign over braces?

Invisalign is an increasingly popular means to fix poorly aligned teeth, especially among young adults, due to its ease of use and comfort. Not convinced quite yet? Here are the benefits of Invisalign over braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches.

Invisibility

People want to see your real teeth, not a mouth full of metal.

Comfort

Thanks to the smooth plastic, you won’t get the mouth irritation sharp metal braces causes.

Convenience

You can easily remove the aligners whenever you need to eat, brush, or floss.

Timing

With Invisalign, you can expect to see results up to 50% faster than with other orthodontic techniques.

Are you a good candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign can solve mild to moderate dental misalignments, like:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Relapse after braces

For major alignment and orthodontic issues, a different treatment may be recommended by your Edgewater Dental Group dentist. Book an appointment to find out if Invisalign is right for you.

What can I expect from Invisalign treatment?

First, your dentist examines your teeth to determine whether Invisalign is right for you. They might either make physical impressions of your teeth or create 3D images of them using a digital scanner. Using these, your dentist develops a precise treatment plan.

After this step, your dentist customizes plastic aligners to fit over your teeth. While you wear them, the aligners gradually push your teeth where they are supposed to go. As your teeth begin to shift, new aligners may be made. This process continues until your smile is just right.
