Invisalign Q & A

How does Invisalign work?

You have an innovative new alternative to braces: Invisalign. This treatment involves wearing clear plastic aligners over your teeth to align them over time gently.

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. Invisalign should stay in your mouth if you’re not eating or brushing your teeth.

What are the benefits of Invisalign over braces?

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, so you don’t have to worry about your mouth getting cut up by pointy mental braces

Convenience, with the ability to immediately remove them whenever you need to eat, floss, or brush your teeth

Timing, because consistent Invisalign treatments work up to 50% quicker than other orthodontic techniques

Should I get Invisalign?

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

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

Dr. Stein 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 at LianaSmiles.

What is involved in Invisalign treatment?

First, Dr. Stein examines your teeth to determine whether Invisalign is right for you. She may take a physical impression of your teeth or use a digital scanning device to create 3D images. With these, Dr. Stein will be able to form an individualized treatment plan that suits your specific needs.

Then Dr. Stein customizes clear, plastic aligners that fit your teeth. As you wear them, the aligners smoothly shift your teeth into perfect alignment. To keep your teeth moving in the right direction, Dr. Stein will occasionally make your new aligners. At the end of this process, your smile will have its new shape!

If you want to straighten your teeth without unsightly, painful braces, talk to Dr. Stein about Invisalign by calling LianaSmiles or booking an appointment online today.
