Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a type of orthodontics treatment in which you wear a series of clear plastic aligners over your natural teeth to move them into an ideal alignment over time. Unlike traditional braces that require wires and brackets, Invisalign aligners are clear and removable. They can give you the straighter, beautiful teeth you deserve.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Some of the many benefits you can experience with Invisalign treatment include:

  • Straighter teeth
  • Improved bite alignment
  • Easier teeth cleaning
  • Lower risk of tooth decay
  • Fewer tooth gaps
  • Aesthetically pleasing smile
  • Self-confidence 

Invisalign treatment is simple, fast, and painless, but it can produce dramatic results and a gorgeous smile. 

Is Invisalign right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for Invisalign treatment, your dentist reviews your oral health history, examines your teeth and gums, and takes dental X-rays. They discuss your desired results before personalizing an orthodontics treatment plan that’s right for you. 

What happens during Invisalign treatment?

Your Smiling Molar Dental provider digitally scans your teeth, allowing a dental lab to develop a series of custom-fitted aligners just for you. When the aligners are ready, you can wear them for 20-22 hours every day. Take the aligners out of your mouth to brush your teeth, floss your teeth, and eat or drink.

Keep them clean by rinsing them often and brushing them when needed, but avoid rinsing the aligners in hot water. Every 1-2 weeks as directed by your Smiling Molar Dental provider, switch to the next set of aligners in your series. The average Invisalign treatment time takes about 12-18 months.

What should I expect after my treatment?

After Invisalign treatment is complete, you might wear a retainer for a period of time to keep your teeth in their proper alignment. Keep your teeth clean by brushing after meals, flossing daily, and seeing the Smiling Molar Dental team every six months for professional teeth cleanings and exams.

If you’re ready for straighter teeth and a beautiful smile, call the Smiling Molar Dental office or schedule an appointment online today to find out if Invisalign is right for you.
