Invisalign Q & A
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign provides an attractive alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments like braces. It’s a revolutionary new way to straighten teeth. This treatment uses clear, plastic aligners that fit over your teeth to gradually align them over time.
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. Wear the Invisalign aligners any time you are not eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth.
Is Invisalign really better than braces?
Due to its comfort and ease of use, Invisalign is an increasingly popular treatment for misaligned teeth, especially among young adults. Not convinced quite yet? Here are the benefits of Invisalign over braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches:
- Invisibility, so people never see a mouthful of metal, they see your real teeth
- Comfort, so you don’t have to worry about your mouth getting cut up by pointy mental braces
- Convenience, because when you need to floss, brush your teeth, or eat, you can just take out the aligners
- Timing, since Invisalign has been shown to work up to 50% faster than other orthodontic treatments
Should I get Invisalign?
Invisalign is proven effective to treat mild to moderate dental misalignments, including:
- Crowded teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Rotated teeth
- Teeth misalignment after braces
For major alignment and orthodontic issues, a different treatment may be recommended by your dentist. To see whether Invisalign is the best option for you, visit Wall St Dental Spa for a consultation.
What is involved in Invisalign treatment?
Your dentist will first examine your teeth to determine whether Invisalign is the best treatment method for you. To fully examine your teeth, they will need to either create a physical impression of them or digitally scan them into 3D images. Your dentist will use these to develop a unique treatment plan for you.
After this step, your dentist will customize plastic aligners to fit over your teeth. As you wear them, the aligners smoothly shift your teeth into perfect alignment. As your teeth move, new aligners may be made to continue progress. At the end of this process, your smile will have its new shape!
If you want to straighten your teeth without unsightly, painful braces, talk to the team about Invisalign by calling Wall St Dental Spa or booking an appointment online today.
