Invisalign® Q & A

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign is one of the most well-known, advanced, and trusted clear aligners in the world today.

Invisalign aligners work to straighten your teeth and correct your bite alignment by gently but firmly pushing your teeth. Invisalign uses state-of-the-art technology to calculate just how much force it takes to move your teeth without causing any pain.

What conditions does Invisalign treat?

Invisalign treats many of the same conditions as regular braces, such as:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite 
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth

Invisalign works on adults, as well as children and adolescents, with a combination of baby and permanent teeth. 

What are the advantages of Invisalign?

Invisalign offers a variety of advantages over its competitors, particularly traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are:

Discreet

Because they’re transparent, neither your coworkers nor your peers will see your Invisalign aligners while you’re wearing them. Also, they snugly fit around the crooks and curves of your teeth, so that no one notices them protruding.

Comfortable

Manufactured from smooth, pliable polyurethane SmartTrack® material, Invisalign aligners neither hurt nor cut into your gums and the inside of your mouth like braces can. SmartTrack material also carefully controls pressure from the Invisalign and tooth movement, so that you don’t feel pain.

Easy to use

Invisalign aligners are also very easy to use. They’re removable so that you can clean them. Also, when you’re not wearing them, you can brush, floss, and eat like you normally would. 

Fast working

If you wear your aligners consistently and correctly, Invisalign treatment typically corrects your tooth alignment much more quickly than braces. 

How can I get Invisalign treatment?

If you’re interested in beautifying your smile with Invisalign, book a consultation with Gentle Touch Dental PC. At your consultation, the practice discusses your smile goals with you and looks at your mouth to determine if Invisalign is the right fit.

Once the practice approves your treatment, they scan your mouth to get a 3D image of your teeth, which they use to create your custom aligners. Your aligners match your mouth to your exact gumline.

For the best results, make sure to come into the practice every two weeks to pick up your new set of aligners, which differ slightly from the previous ones and help your teeth gradually move into the correct position.

Invisalign is a smart solution to an age-old problem. If your teeth are painfully misaligned or you’re embarrassed by your misaligned teeth, reach out to determine if Invisalign is right for you. To get started, call Gentle Touch Dental PC or use the online booking tool today.
