Invisalign Q & A
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign® is a series of custom aligner trays made of smooth, near-invisible plastic. You wear them similarly to a retainer, and they’re designed to comfortably and gradually shift and realign your teeth over time.
Dr. Samet will take impressions of your teeth and digitize them. From these impressions, a computerized image of the teeth and a 3D model will be created in-office. Using the 3D model, Dr. Samet will plan the movement of your teeth and develop a custom treatment plan for you.
Every two weeks or so, you’ll return to the office, where Dr. Samet will create a new set of aligners for you to wear until you’re satisfied that your teeth are realigned, and your treatment is complete. For best results, you should wear your aligner trays 20-22 hours a day.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign is non-invasive, and there are no metal brackets or wires that can irritate and poke your gums. While there are other methods of teeth straightening, Invisalign offers the most benefits, including:
- Minimal interference in your daily life
- Backed by over 20 years of clinical research
- Works on people of all ages, including children
- You can brush and floss your teeth as you normally would
- A comfortable and discreet design with near-invisible plastic
- No restrictions on eating: you can consume a normal, balanced diet
Invisalign also includes a distinctive feature — a compliance indicator to monitor how long teens wear their aligner trays.
The gradual, strategic movement of the teeth happens more quickly with Invisalign, and the trays are removable. That makes them a top choice for many people who dislike the thought of consistently wearing a retainer, tray, or metal brace of any kind.
What can I expect after my Invisalign treatment?
After your treatment, you may need to wear a retainer made from the same material as the aligners, to assure optimal results. You’ll need follow-up visits to maintain the results and ensure that your dental health is in excellent condition.
Over 4 million people have chosen to straighten their teeth using this inventive method. Call or book online to visit Dr. Samet and discuss the state-of-the-art Invisalign technology.
