Invisalign Q & A
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a cutting-edge treatment system that straightens teeth and enhances smiles.
The removable aligners gradually shift your teeth into proper alignment, all while no one can tell you’re wearing a dental appliance, as the aligners are also transparent.
Your aligners fit comfortably onto your teeth and apply controlled force, moving your teeth into a healthier, straighter row. One of the most advanced orthodontic treatments in the world, Invisalign has been the orthodontic treatment of choice for over six million men, women, and teens across the globe.
How does Invisalign work?
First, A Caring Dental Group uses modern digital scan technology to develop your Invisalign treatment plan. Your Invisalign treatment will follow this precise, planned tooth movement. With this technology, they can even show you what your smile will look like after your Invisalign journey is complete.
Those digital impressions are then used to custom-produce your thermoplastic aligners. Once your first set of aligners is ready, you’ll start wearing them immediately. To ensure optimal results, you need to wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours every day.
You’ll receive a new set of aligners every 2-3 weeks that you’ll trade out for the old set. Each new set of aligners has undergone slight sizing adjustments so that they apply new pressure and maintain the planned movement of your teeth.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
It doesn’t matter if you’re an adult with a full-time job or a teen in school, it’s no fun smiling with a mouthful of bulky metal brackets. However, with Invisalign, there’s nothing to worry about. When you’re wearing your clear Invisalign aligners, most people can’t even tell there’s anything on your teeth. That means you can smile with confidence for the entirety of your Invisalign journey.
The other most prominent benefit is that eating and brushing your teeth are far easier with Invisalign. Since the aligners are removable, you can take them out when you need to. You’ll never have to worry about getting food caught up in metal brackets and go through the pain of trying to dig food particles out.
How long does treatment with Invisalign take?
On average, treatment with Invisalign is 50% shorter than treatment with traditional braces. The length of your Invisalign treatment plan depends mostly on the state of your teeth at the outset. Most plans call for approximately 12 months of wearing the aligners. However, in some cases, it can take as little as a few months.
