Invisalign Q & A
Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, plastic aligners to shift your teeth into proper alignment. It’s become an incredibly popular alternative to traditional metal braces, with over six million people worldwide have chosen to straighten their smile with Invisalign.
What can Invisalign correct?
Invisalign’s convenient system of clear plastic aligners treats most of the conditions that you would normally treat with traditional metal braces, including:
- Gap teeth
- Open bite
- Crowded teeth
Many patients also choose to undergo treatment with Invisalign to correct mild to moderate dental misalignments and achieve generally straighter teeth.
How does Invisalign treatment work?
The first step towards improving your smile with Invisalign is to schedule an appointment for Dr. Ilyayev to make an impression of your teeth and bite. He sends this impression off to a lab that makes a virtual model of your teeth and maps out all the necessary “steps” required to get them into their target alignment.
The lab then fabricates a series of clear plastic aligners that are modeled after each of these “steps” towards your target alignment. The aligners fit snugly over your teeth and exert a small amount of pressure that gradually moves them into proper alignment.
You wear your aligners all day and only take them out to brush, floss, or eat. Every two weeks, you move on to the next aligner in your series as your teeth progressively get closer to their target alignment. Depending on your current alignment, you could achieve your final results in as little as nine months!
Why should I get Invisalign?
Invisalign is a technologically advanced orthodontic treatment that can safely and effectively straighten your teeth without many of the hassles of traditional metal braces. Compared to traditional metal braces, treatment with Invisalign is:
The clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible in your mouth during treatment.
Invisalign’s smooth plastic aligners don’t shred the inside of your mouth, unlike braces.
Invisalign can work up to 50% faster than braces in some cases.
Easier to keep your teeth clean
You can brush and floss like normal during treatment. Just pop out your aligner and pop it back in after. No special tools or techniques required!
