Invisalign® Q&A

What does Invisalign do?

Invisalign is a revolutionary new way to straighten teeth, offering an appealing alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments like braces. This treatment uses clear, plastic aligners that fit over your teeth to align them gradually over time.

The aligners are removable for easy eating and teeth cleaning, but you need to wear them for at least 20 hours daily for the best results. Invisalign should stay in your mouth if you’re not eating or brushing your teeth.

What are the benefits of Invisalign over braces?

More and more young adults choose Invisalign thanks to its ease of use and comfort. Curious about why Invisalign might be better than braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches? The benefits include: 

  • Invisibility, so people see your natural teeth, not a mouthful of metal
  • Comfort, thanks to the smooth plastic, you won’t get the mouth irritation caused by sharp metal braces
  • Convenience, thanks to your ability to easily remove them whenever you need to eat, brush, or floss
  • Timing, because, with Invisalign, you can expect to see results up to 50% faster than with other orthodontic techniques

Is Invisalign right for me?

Mild to moderate dental misalignments are no match for Invisalign. Invisalign can help correct issues such as:

  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Teeth misalignment after braces

Invisalign might not be the right treatment for you if you have major alignment and orthodontic issues. Your Woodlands Elite Dental Partners provider might recommend an alternative treatment if this is the case. Schedule an appointment to find out if Invisalign is right for you.

What is involved in Invisalign treatment?

First, your provider examines your teeth to determine whether Invisalign is right for you. To fully examine your teeth, they will need to either create a physical impression of them or digitally scan them into 3-D images. This helps develop a precise treatment plan.

Next, your provider fits your teeth with customized clear plastic aligners. While you wear them, the aligners gradually push your teeth where they are supposed to go. Your provider will occasionally make your new aligners to keep your teeth moving in the right direction. Until your smile is perfect, this process will keep going.
