Invisalign® Q & A
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses a custom made series clear medical grade plastic aligners that fit over the teeth. The aligners are designed to gently guide the teeth into the correct position, similar to metal braces, but with a nearly invisible appearance.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign treatment begins with the dentist taking impressions of your teeth. These impressions are then sent to a lab where a technician creates virtual 3D models to map out the progression of tooth movement that will achieve the desired results. A series of aligners are made using these models. Between 18 and 30 aligners will be created for most patients. During treatment, each aligner is worn for about two weeks, then exchanged for the next aligner in the series.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
One of the most important benefits of Invisalign treatment is that the aligners are made of clear, medical-grade plastic, so the aligners are more or less invisible to others while they're being worn. The aligners are smooth, so they don't irritate lips and other soft tissues. They are also removable for brief periods of time for cleaning and eating. This makes it much easier to brush and floss for better oral health during treatment as well as eliminating the dietary restrictions associated with traditional braces.
How Long Will I Have to Wear the Aligners?
Depending on your current oral health situation, the total amount of time in which you would wear your Invisalign aligners can vary. Every two weeks, you will advance to the next stage of aligners, and every six weeks you will meet with your dentist at Georgetown Dental Spa to ensure that the process is going well. For the best and most efficient results, you should wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours a day, unless otherwise instructed by your doctor.
