Invisalign Q & A

What does Invisalign do?

You have an innovative new alternative to braces: Invisalign. This treatment involves wearing clear plastic aligners over your teeth to gently align them over time.

You need to wear Invisalign clear aligners at least 20 hours per day for the ideal results, but the aligners are removable for teeth cleaning and easy eating. While you’re not eating or brushing your teeth, the Invisalign aligners should remain in your mouth.

Why might Invisalign be a better option for you?

Due to its comfort and ease of use, Invisalign is an increasingly popular treatment for misaligned teeth, especially among young adults. Curious about why Invisalign might be better than braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches? Check out these benefits:

  • Invisibility, so 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 sharp metal braces causes
  • Convenience, because you can remove them quickly whenever you need to brush, floss, or eat
  • Timing, because with Invisalign, you can expect to see results up to 50% faster than with other orthodontic techniques

Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign is proven effective to treat mild to moderate dental misalignments, including:

  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Teeth misalignment after braces

For major alignment and orthodontic issues, Dr. Danialian may recommend a different treatment. Book an appointment with Allure Dentistry to find out if Invisalign is right for you.

What should I expect from an Invisalign treatment?

First, your teeth need to be examined by Dr. Danialian to see if Invisalign is the ideal choice for you. She may use a digital scanner to create 3D images of your teeth or make physical impressions. This helps Dr. Danialian develop a precise treatment plan.

Next, Dr. Danialian fits your teeth with customized clear, plastic aligners. The aligners gently move your teeth into ideal alignment while you wear them. As your teeth move, new aligners may be made to continue progress. Until your smile is perfect, this process will keep going. On average, adults wear Invisalign for 12-18 months but may notice an improvement in their smile within weeks of beginning treatment.
