Invisalign® Q&A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary way to straighten teeth, offering an alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments like braces. The treatment involves wearing clear plastic aligners over your teeth to gently align them over time.

The aligners are removable, allowing for eating and teeth cleaning, but you need to wear them for at least 20 hours per day to see the best results. Wear your Invisalign aligners whenever you’re not eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth.

Why might Invisalign be a good option for me?

Invisalign is a popular way to fix misaligned teeth – especially among young adults – due to its comfort and ease of use. Invisalign offers many benefits over traditional orthodontic appliances like braces. These benefits include:

  • Comfort: so you don’t have to worry about pointy metal braces
  • Invisibility: so people can see your real teeth, not a mouthful of metal
  • Convenience: you can remove them easily whenever you need to eat, brush, or floss
  • Timing: Invisalign can work up to 50% quicker than other orthodontic techniques

Schedule a consultation at SolidSMILES Dental to see if you can benefit from Invisalign. 

Am I a good candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign can effectively correct mild to moderate dental misalignments, including:

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

For major alignment and orthodontic issues, Dr. Patel may recommend a different treatment option. Schedule an appointment at SolidSMILES Dental to find out if Invisalign is the right choice for you.

What can I expect from Invisalign treatment?

First, Dr. Patel examines your teeth to see if Invisalign is the right fit for you. To fully examine your teeth, she will need to either create a physical impression of them or digitally scan them into 3-D images. Using these, Dr. Patel will develop a personalized treatment plan.

After that, Dr. Patel will fit customized plastic aligners to your teeth. The aligners will gradually move your teeth into their proper positions as you wear them. New aligners may be made as your teeth begin to shift. This process continues until your smile is just right.
