Invisalign Q & A
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment for straightening teeth and improving misalignments in your bite. The Invisalign system uses a series of clear aligners made from smooth, flexible plastic to straighten your smile with more comfort, convenience, and discretion than traditional metal braces.
Invisalign is an incredibly popular treatment option for patients looking for an alternative to braces, with over 8 million smiles and counting straightened with the system.
What orthodontic conditions does Invisalign correct?
Invisalign treats many of the same orthodontic conditions as traditional metal braces, like:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Widely spaced teeth
- Open bite
Invisalign can give you results that are just as effective as those achieved with braces without any of the hassles.
How does Invisalign work?
When you straighten your teeth with Invisalign, Dr. Rochefort gives you a series of clear plastic aligners. Each set in your series contains an aligner for your upper arch and lower arch. You wear your aligners for at least 22 hours every day, but you can take them out when you need to eat, brush, or floss.
Your aligners are designed to fit snugly over your smile and exert minimal but consistent pressure on your teeth. This pressure gradually pushes your teeth into a better position in your mouth until they eventually arrive at a more perfect alignment.
You switch out for a new set of aligners every two weeks as your teeth get closer to their final alignment.
Why should I get Invisalign?
Invisalign has a variety of benefits that makes it a significantly better alternative to traditional metal braces, like:
Invisalign aligners are made from smooth, flexible, BPA-free plastic that rests comfortably in your mouth. Unlike braces, your aligners won’t feel obtrusive in your mouth and tear up the insides of your cheeks.
Because braces are permanently attached to your smile, they require eliminating certain foods from your diet and investing in a range of special tools to properly brush and floss. Invisalign’s aligners are removable, so you won’t have to change your diet and you can keep brushing and flossing like normal.
Invisalign aligners are clear and virtually unnoticeable when you’re wearing them, so you won’t have to endure the mouthful-of-metal look of braces.
