Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a state-of-the-art orthodontic treatment that improves the alignment of your teeth and bite using a series of clear plastic aligners that fit comfortably and discreetly over your teeth.

Invisalign has quickly become a popular orthodontic alternative to traditional metal braces, with over 6 million people worldwide opting to use the system of clear plastic aligners to improve their smile.

Am I a candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign can treat the same orthodontic conditions that are normally addressed with braces, so Invisalign is for you if you’re looking to correct:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Large gaps between your teeth
  • An open bite
  • An underbite
  • A crossbite
  • An overbite

Because Invisalign’s clear aligners are virtually invisible in your mouth, it’s a popular choice for adult patients or patients who don’t want to draw attention to the fact that they’re receiving orthodontic treatment.

How does Invisalign work?

The first step in improving your smile with Invisalign is to take an impression of your bite and alignment. Dr.Entezam and the team then use this impression to make a virtual model of your teeth. They manipulate this virtual model to create a projection of your target alignment and then map out a series of steps in between that final alignment and your present smile.

Those steps are then turned into a series of clear plastic aligners that fit snugly and comfortably over your teeth. Once in place, the aligners exert a tiny amount of pressure that gradually and gently guide your teeth into their target position.

You wear your aligners all day, every day, and only take them out when you’re brushing, flossing, and eating. You move on to a new set of aligners every two weeks as your smile gets closer to its target alignment. Eventually, you’ll reach a perfectly straight and beautiful smile.

Why should I get Invisalign?

As a relatively new and revolutionary treatment, Invisalign offers a lot of improvements over orthodontic treatment with metal braces. Unlike braces, Invisalign’s clear plastic aligners are:

  • Virtually invisible
  • Smooth and comfortable, so they won’t tear up the inside of your mouth
  • Removable, so you can easily eat, brush, and floss
  • Quick, working up to 50% faster in some cases and delivering results in as little as nine months
