Invisalign Q & A
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic alternative to traditional metal braces that straightens your teeth with a series of removable aligners made from clear, flexible plastic. Your aligners are designed from an impression of your mouth, so they fit snugly on your teeth. When they’re in place on your teeth, your aligners exert a gentle and constant force that gradually pushes your teeth into a better alignment.
You wear your aligners as often as possible, or at least for 22 hours every day. You can take them out to eat, drink, brush, or floss. Every two weeks, you move on to the next aligner in your series, and within one to two years, your teeth will have repositioned to make a straighter, healthier smile.
What does Invisalign treat?
Invisalign treats many of the same conditions that braces correct, like:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Widely spaced teeth
- Open bite
Invisalign is a safe, effective, and convenient way for adult and teenage patients to straighten their smile and improve their oral health.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign’s state-of-the-art aligners have a number of benefits for your orthodontic treatment. They’re:
Because your aligners are removable, it’s easy to keep your smile clean during your treatment. Just remove your aligners whenever you need to brush or floss, and put them back on your teeth after. You don’t have to worry about using special tools to navigate around brackets and wires.
Your aligners are trimmed to fit your gums and custom-built to fit perfectly on your smile. They won’t tear up the insides of your cheeks, like braces do, because they’re made of smooth plastic.
Your aligners are made from proprietary SmartTrack® material that’s virtually invisible when they’re on your teeth, so you won’t have to worry about having a mouthful of metal throughout your treatment.
You don’t have to avoid certain foods or change your diet during treatment. Your aligners are removable, so you can just take them out whenever you want to eat. You can also take them out when you’re playing sports in order to avoid injury.
Does Invisalign hurt?
You might feel a little bit of pressure or discomfort whenever you switch to a new set of aligners in your series, but that sensation tends to fade within a matter of days. If you’re experiencing persistent pain, Dr. Sandhu can work with you to make your treatment more comfortable.
What does Invisalign cost?
Many insurance plans cover Invisalign, so you won’t have to worry about draining your savings in order to straighten your teeth. The team of dental experts at Addisville Dental can help you maximize your insurance benefits so that your Invisalign treatment is as affordable as possible.
