Invisalign Q & A
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign® is a revolutionary orthodontic system that over 8 million people have used to straighten their teeth for a healthier and more attractive smile. It works similarly to braces in that the system moves your teeth gradually over time utilizing a small amount of constant pressure.
However, instead of using uncomfortable metal wires and brackets, Invisalign® uses discreet and removable aligners made from comfortable and flexible plastic.
Your aligners fit snugly over your teeth and rest comfortably in your mouth. You wear your aligners every day as often as possible (for at least 22 hours per day), but take them out whenever you need to eat, brush, or floss.
After two weeks, your teeth will have shifted to the position of your aligner, at which point you move on to the next aligner in your series. The number of aligners per treatment varies and depends on the type of orthodontic condition that Dr. Veal is treating and its severity.
What conditions does Invisalign correct?
Invisalign® treats many of the same orthodontic conditions as braces, including:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Widely spaced teeth
- Open bite
You can also use Invisalign® to cosmetically improve your smile by generally straightening your teeth.
How is Invisalign better than braces?
As an innovative orthodontic technology, Invisalign® has several advantages over traditional metal braces, including:
Braces are permanently bonded to your teeth, but Invisalign’s® aligners are removable. That means that you can take them out whenever you need to eat, brush, or floss, saving you the hassle of having to change your diet and invest in new tools to keep your teeth clean during treatment.
Braces fill your mouth with uncomfortable metal wires and brackets, which feel obtrusive and irritate the inside of your cheeks. Invisalign’s® aligners are made from smooth, flexible, BPA-free plastic and fit snugly over your teeth, so you’ll hardly notice them.
When you have braces, you can’t avoid the mouthful-of-metal look. Invisalign’s® aligners are clear and virtually invisible, so you won’t have to be embarrassed by your smile during your treatment.
