Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment and a modern alternative to traditional metal braces. With Invisalign, you can straighten your smile without unattractive and uncomfortable metal wires and brackets, and instead use a series of comfortable and attractive aligners made from clear, flexible plastic. 

Over 7 million people worldwide have straightened their smiles with Invisalign, including 1.4 million teens.

What conditions does Invisalign correct?

Invisalign is great for treating mild to moderate orthodontic conditions, like:

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

Many people also elect to use Invisalign for cosmetic purposes, like generally straightening their teeth.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign works on the same fundamental principles as braces do, they just do it with a more comfortable and convenient system.

Your clear plastic aligners are made from an impression of your mouth and are designed to gently apply pressure to your teeth. This pressure gradually moves them into a better position in your mouth.

As your teeth successfully move, you go through new sets of aligners that work with the new position of your teeth. After you’ve gone through your entire series of Invisalign aligners, your teeth will be in their optimal position, giving you a straight smile that’s healthier and more attractive.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

As a newer orthodontic system, Invisalign has been engineered to provide a number of advantages for your treatment experience, including:

Improved comfort

Your aligners are made from smooth, flexible, BPA-free plastic, and are designed to fit snugly over your teeth. Unlike braces, which can tear up the insides of your cheeks, your aligners sit comfortably in your mouth.

More convenient at-home care

Because braces are semi-permanently bonded to your teeth, you have to change up your diet and learn a whole new set of techniques to keep your teeth clean during your treatment. 

Invisalign’s aligners, on the other hand, are removable. That means that cleaning your teeth is as simple as taking out your aligners, brushing and flossing like you normally would, and putting them back on your teeth when you’re done.

Better-looking

Your clear aligners are virtually invisible on your smile, so nobody will know that you’re going through orthodontic treatment unless you tell them. This saves you the embarrassment of the mouthful-of-metal look that’s unavoidable with braces.

How do I get started with Invisalign?

If you’ve decided that Invisalign is for you, the team at Dash Dental Spa uses X-rays and a digital scanner to take an impression of your mouth, jaw, and face. That impression is turned into a virtual model of your smile that’s adjusted to map out all of the necessary steps required to get your teeth into alignment. Those steps are then turned into your series of aligners.

You wear your aligners as often as possible, ideally for 20-22 hours every day. You can take them out when you need to eat, brush, or floss. Treatment time varies depending on how severe your condition is at the start of treatment.

Dash Dental Spa believes that everyone deserves a straight smile, and offers free consultations and financing with zero-interest for their Invisalign patients. Get started today by calling the office or booking your consultation online.
