What does Invisalign treatment involve?
Invisalign treatment involves wearing a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. No braces, no wires, and none of the limitations that metal braces can bring.
What are the Invisalign clear aligners made of and what do they look like?
Clear Invisalign aligners are made of flexible plastic; to be precise from a patented thermoplastic material called SmartTrack material made exclusively for Invisalign treatments.
How will my teeth be straightened with Invisalign treatment?
Your Invisalign practitioner creates a unique, digital treatment plan in which the exact movements of your teeth are mapped. Your clear Invisalign aligners are then designed to apply the right amount of pressure in the right place at the right time based on your plan. Your Invisalign practitioner will guide you every step of the way to monitor your progress and ensure your aligners fit correctly.
Am I guaranteed to get straight teeth with Invisalign treatment?
Every smile is unique, so your Invisalign treatment starts with a consultation. During your consultation, your Invisalign practitioner will help you determine what Invisalign treatment can do for your smile. We cannot guarantee specific treatment results, but encourage you to state your treatment goals during the consultation with your Invisalign practitioner.
Could Invisalign Treatment Be The Right Solution For Me?
Invisalign treatments can be a great solution for adults and teens alike who are looking for a virtually invisible way to improve their smile. Our innovations and technological advancements make it possible to solve almost all common problems in the field of denture correction and bites; from simple to complex. Thanks to a discreet blue dot on the outside of the teen aligners, parents can rest assured that their growing child will wear the clear aligners often enough.
What does the treatment procedure consist of?
Invisalign treatment begins with a consultation with a trained Invisalign practitioner. Your Invisalign practitioner will evaluate your smile and then create an accurate, customized digital treatment plan that outlines the step-by-step transformation of your smile.
Once you have approved your plan, your unique aligners will be created. You will wear each set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day and switch to a new set of aligners every 1 to 2 weeks, as directed by your Invisalign practitioner. Each set of aligners gently and gradually slides your teeth into place, according to your treatment plan, on your way to your beautiful new smile.
What should I bring to the consultation with my Invisalign practitioner?
Bring your questions (we’ve got a list to get you started). Also take all information about your dental history with you.
What can I expect during my consultation?
During the consultation, your Invisalign practitioner will review your dental correction goals and examine your smile to identify your specific needs. Your Invisalign practitioner may also discuss how quickly you can achieve your new smile and the cost of your treatment.
Your Invisalign practitioner will most likely recommend scheduling a dental checkup and cleaning prior to your Invisalign treatment to ensure your teeth and gums are in good health and to avoid unnecessary risks.
How long will the treatment take?
The duration of the treatment depends on several factors, such as how complex your case is and how often you wear the aligners. Your Invisalign practitioner will determine exactly how long your treatment can last based on your specific needs. On average, an Invisalign treatment lasts 12 to 18 months,4 although you can see results within a few weeks.
How many hours a day should I wear my Invisalign aligners?
For best results, wear your Invisalign clear aligners 20 to 22 hours a day and only take them out to eat, drink, brush and floss.
How often do I have an appointment with my Invisalign practitioner?
Your Invisalign practitioner schedules regular appointments, usually every four to six weeks. These appointments are to check that your Invisalign treatment is going according to plan.
Do I need to wear a retainer after the treatment to prevent my teeth from moving again?
Most Invisalign practitioners recommend that anyone who has completed orthodontic treatment, whether with braces or Invisalign treatment, use a retainer to prevent teeth from gradually sliding back to their original position. Every case is different, so ask your Invisalign practitioner if you need retainers.
