Invisalign Q & A

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign is an innovative new way to straighten teeth. It offers a great alternative to traditional teeth-straightening treatments like braces. This treatment uses clear, plastic aligners that fit over your teeth to gradually align them over time.

It’s best to wear the aligners for at least 20 hours per day, but they can be removed for easy eating and teeth cleaning. 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. Invisalign offers the following benefits over braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches:

  • Invisibility, so people never see a mouthful of metal, they see your real teeth
  • Comfort, because the soft plastic won’t cut your mouth like sharp metal braces
  • Convenience, because when you need to floss, brush your teeth, or eat, you can just take out the aligners
  • Timing, because Invisalign treatments work up to 50% faster than other orthodontic techniques

Should I get Invisalign?

Invisalign can effectively fix mild to moderate dental misalignments, such as:

  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Relapse after braces

If you have major orthodontic and alignment issues, Drs.  Zulfaghary and Asad may recommend a different treatment. Schedule an appointment to find out if Invisalign is right for you.
What should I anticipate from an Invisalign treatment?

Drs.  Zulfaghary and Asad will start by examining your teeth to check that Invisalign is the right choice for you. To fully examine your teeth, Drs.  Zulfaghary and Asad will need to either create a physical impression of them or digitally scan them into 3-D images. This helps Drs. Zulfaghary and Asad develop a precise treatment plan.

Then Drs.  Zulfaghary and Asad customizes clear, plastic aligners that fit your teeth. The aligners will gradually move your teeth into their proper positions as you wear them. New aligners may be made as your teeth begin to shift. This process repeats until your smile has its new shape.
