Invisalign Q & A
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign is a revolutionary new way to straighten teeth, offering an appealing alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments like braces. This treatment uses clear, plastic aligners that fit over your teeth to gradually straighten them over time.
You need to wear Invisalign aligners at least 20 hours per day to achieve ideal results, but the aligners are removable for teeth cleaning and easy eating. When you’re not eating or brushing your teeth, the aligners should remain in your mouth.
Is Invisalign really better than braces?
More and more young adults choose Invisalign thanks to their ease of use and comfort level. Are you curious about why Invisalign might be better than braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches? Check out these benefits:
- Invisibility – people never see a mouthful of metal; they see your real teeth
- Comfort – thanks to the smooth plastic you won’t get the mouth irritation caused by sharp metal braces
- Convenience – because when you need to brush your teeth, floss, or eat, you can just take out the aligners
- Timing – because Invisalign treatments work up to 50% faster than other orthodontic techniques
Who’s a good candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign can effectively fix mild to moderate dental misalignments, such as:
- Overcrowded teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Rotated teeth
- Relapse after braces
If you have major orthodontic and alignment issues, your dentist could recommend a different approach. The best way to find out if Invisalign is right for you is by scheduling a consultation.
What is involved in Invisalign treatment?
A dental expert at Clemmons Village examines your teeth to make sure Invisalign is the right choice for you. He uses a digital scanner to create 3D images of your teeth or makes physical impressions, using these to develop a unique treatment plan for you.
Your dentist then customizes clear, plastic aligners that fit your teeth and move them into ideal alignment. To keep your teeth moving in the right direction, your dentist occasionally makes new aligners. This process continues until your smile is just right.
