Invisalign Q & A

Is Invisalign better than traditional metal braces?

Most patients think so, and here's why: Invisalign doesn't use metal bands; instead it uses clear plastic trays called aligners which are much more comfortable than metal braces. There are no sharp edges or wires to cut your gums or lips, and because they're clear, they're nearly invisible. Plus, Invisalign aligners can be removed, making it much easier to brush and floss your teeth and to have them examined and cared for by the dentist during treatment. You can also remove them to eat and for social events or picture-taking if you like. Plus, they usually work more quickly than metal braces, so you can experience your beautiful, straight smile in less time.

How does Invisalign work?

During your initial appointment, the doctor will make an impression of your mouth. The impression is scanned into a special computer using 3-D technology, and the computer program models what an ideal alignment would look like based on the size and shape of your mouth, jaws and teeth. Then, it creates a computerized model of all the steps your teeth will have to go through in order to gently shift into that ideal placement. Your trays will be custom-designed based on that modeling, so each tray follows in a series of specific steps aimed at slowly moving your teeth into their new positions.

How many aligners will I need to use?

The number of aligners will vary based on how many small shifts your teeth need to make to achieve the ideal alignment. Most patients use anywhere from 12 to 30 aligners during the course of their treatment. Aligners are usually replaced about every two weeks.
