Invisalign® Q & A
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign is a revolutionary new way to straighten teeth, offering an appealing alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments like braces. With Invisalign, clear plastic aligners fitted over your teeth will align your teeth little by little over time.
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. Wear the Invisalign aligners any time you are not eating, drinking, 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. Not convinced quite yet? Here are the benefits of Invisalign over braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches:
- Invisibility, because people want to see your real teeth, not a mouthful of metal
- 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, since Invisalign has been shown to work up to 50% faster than other orthodontic treatments
Am I a good candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign is proven effective to treat mild to moderate dental misalignments, including:
- Crowded teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Rotated teeth
- Relapse after braces
For major alignment and orthodontic issues, a different treatment may be recommended by Cai Dentistry. To see whether Invisalign is the best option for you, visit Cai Dentistry for a consultation.
What can I expect from Invisalign treatment?
First, your teeth need to be examined by Cai Dentistry to see if Invisalign is the ideal choice for you. He might either make physical impressions of your teeth or create 3-D images of them using a digital scanner. This helps Cai Dentistry develop a precise treatment plan.
Then, Cai Dentistry customizes clear, plastic aligners that fit your teeth. While you wear them, the aligners gradually push your teeth where they are supposed to go. As your teeth move, new aligners may be made to continue progress. This process repeats until your smile has its new shape.
