Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Invisalign

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a clear aligner that can correct malocclusions of the teeth by serving as Braces. It is made from a transparent material that is removable and does not have any metal brackets or wires attached which makes it a more comfortable and pleasing dental treatment.

How does Invisalign work?

It works by applying a much-controlled force evenly on the teeth which gradually moves it in its proper position. Invisalign is worn at both the upper and lower teeth to provide an overall alignment for a more pleasing result.

Who are Candidates for Invisalign?

Teenagers and adults are candidates for the treatment specifically those who want to get a more discreet and faster treatment that does not get in the way of their busy schedules. People who have problems with their bites and teeth alignments are suited for this type of treatment.

What is the Treatment process?

The treatment starts by scheduling a consultation with a dentist for the evaluation of the patient’s current teeth structure. After proper evaluation, a treatment plan would be mapped-out that would be shown to the patient digitally while the dentist explains the expected results after the whole treatment. Once the patient agrees, the aligners would be custom-created and provided by set and sequence to be worn daily for 20 to 22 hours and replaced every two weeks for a more effective result.

Would Invisalign work to people who previously wear Braces?

Yes, since Invisalign can correct misalignments like the traditional braces, it can serve as an alternative to improve their smiles without using metal brackets and wires. If their teeth have shifted after wearing braces, it can be corrected by Invisalign.

How to properly care for the Aligners?

Keeping the Invisalign clean is essential for maintaining the health of the teeth while correcting its appearance to get it strong. To properly clean the aligner trays, use a soft-bristled toothbrush with cool or lukewarm water to make sure that it is kept clean and bacteria-free. Never use hot water to clean it since it can permanently change the shape of the aligner damaging it. Make sure to clean the teeth after eating and before putting it back, if a brush is an unavailable rinse the mouth with water to properly remove any residue to keep the aligners clean and avoid acids that can damage the teeth and even cause a bad odor to the aligner.
