Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Say goodbye to the brackets and wires of braces. Invisalign is a set of clear plastic aligners that fit over your teeth to correct smile issues like irregular bites and crooked teeth. The aligners shift your teeth gradually over time following a customized treatment plan developed by Dr. Tran.

What are the advantages of Invisalign?

Invisalign offers several benefits when it comes to correcting your smile. Consider these:

  • You can remove them to eat and drink, so there’s no need to alter your diet
  • You can remove them to brush and floss, so bacteria is less likely to invade your teeth and gums
  • They often work more quickly than regular braces
  • They have no wires or brackets that can irritate your gums and cheeks

Invisalign aligners are clear, so people will barely notice you’re wearing them.

Who is a candidate for Invisalign aligners?

Invisalign aligners correct a variety of bite issues and gapped teeth. Dr. Tran recommends Invisalign for:

  • Overbites and underbites
  • Crossbites and open bites
  • Gapped or crowded teeth

People of all ages who want straighter teeth can take advantage of Invisalign treatment. Teens are especially good candidates because they appreciate being able to remove the aligners to eat and drink and to play sports.

What happens when I decide to get Invisalign?

When you and Dr. Tran have decided that Invisalign is the right way to transform your smile, you’ll come in for a special 3D scan of your mouth. This scan is then sent to a lab to create the aligners.

The aligners are delivered to the office as a set. You switch to a new one each week or two as your teeth gradually shift position. Patients wear Invisalign at least 20 hours a day to achieve the best results.

Does Invisalign require regular adjustments?

Schedule regular check-in appointments with Dr. Tran to ensure the aligners are doing your job and to check your compliance with the plan. The treatment lasts anywhere from several months to a year or longer depending on how extensive your corrective needs are.

When you want a smile that’s straighter and more aligned, choose Invisalign as a comfortable and nearly invisible alternative to braces. Call Woodbury Family Dentistry or book an appointment using this website.
