Invisalign Q&A

 

 

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a nearly invisible solution to straightening your teeth. Instead of using brackets and metal wires as traditional braces do, Invisalign uses clear aligner trays to guide your teeth into their proper position.

The gradual approach of the Invisalign teeth straightening system is comfortable and incredibly discreet. Its innovative technology allows the dental care professionals at Greenwich Dentistry to treat a wide variety of dental conditions, including:

  • Overcrowding
  • Crooked teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Overbites, underbites, and crossbites

Invisalign can also address complex dental issues by uprighting crooked teeth in addition to moving teeth horizontally and vertically.

How does Invisalign work?

The Greenwich Dentistry team takes digital X-rays and impressions of your mouth to create your customized Invisalign plan. These images are used to generate a 3-D model of your mouth and teeth to map out the specific changes needed to get you that ideal smile. This precise approach provides a clear vision of the process, as well as a sneak peek of your finished smile.

Once your dentist outlines your Invisalign strategy, the Greenwich Dentistry team makes your custom aligner trays. You wear your aligners 20-22 hours a day, and you remove them only to eat and clean your teeth.

Approximately every two weeks, you change aligner trays as you advance through your treatment. Your Greenwich Dentistry dentist monitors your progress at regular checkups every 6-8 weeks.

During your Invisalign treatment, you wear 18-30 aligners. On average, Invisalign takes a year from start to finish. This modern approach to teeth straightening is effective for both teenagers and adults.

What are the advantages of Invisalign?

Invisalign has revolutionized teeth straightening in several ways, such as:

  • Enabling you to maintain proper dental hygiene more easily
  • Requiring fewer dental appointments than traditional braces
  • Providing a discreet solution because they’re nearly invisible
  • Eliminating dietary restrictions because you remove them while eating
  • Offering predictable results because of Invisalign’s precise 3-D imaging software
  • Creating a comfortable alternative to braces — aligner trays cause little to no irritation
