Are you looking for an effective, discreet way to improve your smile? If so, Invisalign® may be the answer you’ve been searching for. We’ve compiled a list of some of the most frequently asked questions about Invisalign®, so that you can feel confident in your decision when choosing whether or not it is right for you. Read on to learn more about how Invisalign® works and how it can help you improve your smile!
What is Invisalign® treatment?
Invisalign® treatment gradually straightens your teeth by utilizing a series of clear and removable aligners. You won’t have to deal with brackets and wires or the limitations that come with traditional metal braces.
What are Invisalign® clear aligners made of and what do they look like?
The clear aligners used in Invisalign® treatment are made from a flexible plastic material called SmartTrack. This material has been patented for the exclusive use of Invisalign® treatment.
How will Invisalign® treatment straighten my teeth?
Your Invisalign® provider will design a personalized digital treatment plan that determines the precise teeth movements required for your individual case. Based on your plan, Invisalign® clear aligners apply the appropriate amount of force to the correct location at the appropriate time. Throughout your Invisalign® treatment, your provider will closely monitor your progress and check that your aligners fit properly.
What are the primary benefits of Invisalign® treatment?
Invisalign® clear aligners are designed to be invisible, so it’s possible that people won’t even realize you’re wearing them. You can take them out for eating, drinking, brushing, flossing, or on special occasions. This product does not contain any metal brackets or wires that can cause irritation or breakage to your mouth.
Am I guaranteed to have straight teeth with Invisalign® treatment?
Your Invisalign® treatment begins with a consultation because each smile is unique. Your Invisalign® provider will assist you in identifying how Invisalign® treatment can enhance your smile during the consultation. While we cannot promise a specific treatment outcome, we recommend discussing your treatment objectives with your Invisalign® provider during your consultation.
Is Invisalign® treatment right for me?
Certainly! Invisalign® treatment is an excellent option for adults and teenagers who desire a nearly invisible way to enhance their smile. Our technological advancements and innovations enable us to fix a wide range of teeth-straightening and bite issues, including both simple and complex ones. Best of all, these treatments won’t disrupt your busy life. Thanks to a discreet blue dot located on the exterior of teen aligners, parents can also ensure that their child is wearing their clear aligners frequently enough.
What is the treatment process?
To begin Invisalign® treatment, you will first need to have a consultation with a dentist or orthodontist who is trained in providing Invisalign®. After your provider evaluates your smile, they will create a personalized digital treatment plan that illustrates how your smile will change in each step of the process. After you give your approval to the plan, your custom aligners will be produced. As per your provider’s instructions, wear one set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day and switch to a new set every 1 to 2 weeks. Your teeth will be shifted into place gradually and gently with each set of aligners, following your treatment plan, until you achieve your new, beautiful smile.
