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 straighten your teeth little by little over time.

It’s best to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours per day. They can be removed for easy eating and teeth cleaning. Wear the Invisalign aligners any time you are not eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth – that includes while you sleep at night.

Why choose Invisalign over braces?

Because Invisalign is so comfortable and easy to use, it is becoming a more and more popular way to straighten teeth, particularly with young adults. Invisalign offers the following benefits over braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches:

  • Invisibility, so people never see a mouthful of metal, they see your real teeth
  • Comfort, thanks to the smooth plastic, you won’t get the mouth irritation caused by sharp metal braces
  • Convenience, because you can remove them quickly whenever you need to brush, floss, or eat
  • Timing, because consistent Invisalign treatments work up to 50% faster than other orthodontic techniques

Are you a good candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign is proven effective to treat mild to moderate dental misalignments, including:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Teeth misalignment after braces

If you have major orthodontic and alignment issues, your dentist could recommend a different treatment alternative. To see if Invisalign is the best option for you, visit Integrity Dental of Greenwich for a consultation.

What should I expect from an Invisalign treatment?

Your dentist will start by examining your teeth to check that Invisalign is the right choice for you. They might either make physical impressions of your teeth or create 3D images using a digital scanner. Your dentist will use these impressions or images to develop a unique treatment plan for you.

After that, your dentist will fit customized plastic aligners to your teeth. While you wear them, the aligners gradually push your teeth where they are supposed to go. As your teeth begin to shift, new aligners are made. This process continues until your smile is just right.

What are my options if Invisalign isn’t right for me?

Depending on the severity of your alignment issues, Invisalign might not be the most effective method of straightening your teeth. Fortunately, the team at Integrity Dental of Greenwich works closely with the top orthodontists in Greenwich should more complex treatment be needed.
