Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is one of the most advanced orthodontic treatments in the world. It’s a revolutionary treatment system that straightens teeth and enhances smiles. By wearing clear, removable aligners, you can shift your teeth into optimal alignment. The best part about the whole process is that no one can even tell you’re wearing a dental appliance.

For all these reasons, Invisalign has quickly become one of the most popular choices when it comes to orthodontics for both teens and adults.

How does Invisalign work?

Once you decide on using Invisalign to straighten your teeth, the team at Shapiro Family Dental uses cutting-edge digital scan technology to map your treatment plan. The technology even allows you to see what your smile will look like once treatment is done.

Your digital impressions are then used to custom-create your aligners. When your first set of aligners is ready, you’ll need to start wearing them right away. To achieve optimal results, it’s recommended that you wear your aligners at least 20-22 hours each day.

Every few weeks you’ll receive a new set of aligners. Each new set is slightly different, applying new pressure and maintaining the planned movement of your teeth.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

No matter how old you are, smiling with a mouthful of metal isn’t ideal anywhere. For some, it can even be embarrassing, and tasks like eating and brushing your teeth can be annoying. You can say goodbye to those issues if you decide on Invisalign.

With the clear, removable aligners, most people can’t even tell you’re wearing a dental appliance. The aligners are so discreet you can smile with confidence throughout your treatment and never worry about getting food stuck in your braces since you can remove them when you eat.

Invisalign is great for patients with busy schedules since you only need to check in with the team at Shapiro Family Dental every six weeks for short evaluations. There’s no painful tightening or adjusting of wires, just routine checkups to make sure treatment is going smoothly and your aligners are comfortable.

How long does treatment with Invisalign take?

On average, treatment with Invisalign lasts about one year. However, that can vary depending on factors such as the current state of your smile and how often you wear your aligners. In some cases, treatment can take just a few months.
