Invisalign Q & A

How does Invisalign work?

You have an innovative new alternative to braces: Invisalign. With Invisalign, clear plastic aligners fitted over your teeth will align your teeth little by little over time.

You can easily remove the aligners for teeth cleaning and eating, but you want to wear them for at least 20 hours per day for optimal results. Wear the Invisalign aligners any time you are not eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth.

Why might Invisalign be a better option for you?

More and more young adults are choosing Invisalign thanks to its ease of use and comfortability. Curious about why Invisalign might be better than braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches? Check out these benefits:

  • Invisibility, so when people see you, they see your real teeth, not a mouthful of metal
  • Comfort, because the soft plastic won’t cut your mouth like sharp metal braces
  • Convenience, from your ability to easily remove them whenever you need to eat, brush, or floss
  • Timing, because Invisalign treatments work up to 50% faster than other orthodontic techniques

Is Invisalign right for me?

Invisalign is proven effective to treat mild to moderate dental misalignments, including:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Relapse after braces

Your dentist at Lowes Island Dentistry may recommend an alternative treatment if you have major orthodontic and alignment issues. The best way to find out if Invisalign is right for you is by scheduling an appointment.

What should I expect from an Invisalign treatment?

First, your dentist examines your teeth to determine whether Invisalign is right for you. They may take a physical impression of your teeth or use a digital scanning device to create 3D images. Your dentist will use these to develop a unique treatment plan for you.

After that, your dentist will fit customized plastic aligners to your teeth. The aligners gently move your teeth into ideal alignment while you wear them. As your teeth begin to shift, new aligners may be made. This process repeats until your smile has its new shape.
