Invisalign Q And A
Did you know you can get the beautiful straight teeth you have always wanted without braces?
Invisalign is a clear alternative option for straightening teeth, which uses a series of invisible, removable aligners that no one can tell you are wearing. So let’s see what’s Invisalign meaning.
Q: How is Invisalign treatment different than traditional braces?
A: Not only does Invisalign effectively straighten teeth, but Invisalign aligners are also comfortable and durable, and provide patients the opportunity to enjoy their favorite activities such as sports and playing instruments, activities that can be challenging while wearing braces. Also, Invisalign’s near-invisibility is a popular feature; because Invisalign aligners are removable, patients can remove them at meal times, as well as properly brush and floss to maintain healthy hygiene during treatment
Q: How does Invisalign work?
A: Using a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth, we use proprietary 3D computer imaging technology to map the complete treatment from start to finish. When the aligners are placed on the teeth, they cause your teeth to gradually shift from their current position. After approximately 15 days, you will begin using the next set of aligners, which will continue the teeth straightening process.
Q: Is Invisalign as effective as regular braces?
A: Yes. Depending on the case Invisalign may be more effective than braces.
