Invisalign Q & A
What does Invisalign do?
Invisalign provides an attractive alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments like braces. It is 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. If you’re not eating or brushing your teeth, Invisalign aligners should stay in your mouth.
Why choose Invisalign over braces?
More and more young adults are choosing Invisalign thanks to its ease of use and comfortability. Not convinced quite yet? Here are the benefits of Invisalign over braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches:
- Invisibility, so people see your real teeth, not a mouthful of metal
- Comfort, because the soft plastic won’t cut your mouth like sharp metal 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
Is Invisalign right for me?
Invisalign can solve mild to moderate dental misalignments, like:
- Crowded teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Rotated teeth
- Relapse after braces
Invisalign might not be the right treatment for you if you have major alignment and orthodontic issues. Dr. Nili might recommend an alternative treatment if this is the case. To see whether Invisalign is the best option for you, visit G. Nili, DMD for a consultation.
What is involved in Invisalign treatment?
First, your teeth need to be examined by Dr. Nili to see if Invisalign is the ideal choice for you. She may take a physical impression of your teeth or use a digital scanning device to create 3D images. This helps Dr. Nili develop a precise treatment plan.
Next, Dr. Nili fits your teeth with customized clear, plastic aligners. While you wear them, the aligners gradually push your teeth where they are supposed to go. As your teeth move, new aligners may be made to continue progress. Until your smile is perfect, this process will keep going.
