How Invisalign Works

Invisalign treatment is a modern approach to straightening teeth through a series of clear, custom-made, removable aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. Here’s the step-by-step process:

  1. Initial Consultation: During your first visit, your orthodontist will discuss your dental concerns and goals. A detailed scan of your mouth and teeth is taken using state-of-the-art digital imaging technology to create a 3D model of your teeth.
  2. Custom Treatment Plan: Using this model, your orthodontist designs a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth and the duration of treatment. You will be able to see a virtual representation of how your teeth will move during treatment.
  3. Receiving Your Aligners: Once your aligners are ready, you’ll receive several sets to wear. Each aligner should be worn for about two weeks before moving to the next set in the series. Unlike traditional braces, these aligners can be removed while eating, brushing, and flossing.
  4. Progress Checks: You will visit the orthodontist periodically for check-ups to monitor your progress and receive new sets of aligners. The number of aligners varies per individual but typically ranges between 20 to 30 for an average treatment.
  5. Completion of Treatment: After you’ve gone through all your aligners, your treatment is complete! To prevent teeth from gradually shifting back to their initial position, retainers may be recommended.

Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses clear, plastic aligners to straighten teeth without metal braces. Each aligner is custom-made using 3D computer imaging technology to fit snugly over your teeth and gradually shift them into their desired position.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign treatment involves wearing a series of custom-made aligners that you change approximately every two weeks. Each aligner is slightly different, moving your teeth incrementally until they are aligned correctly. You must wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day for optimal results.

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

The duration of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the complexity of the case. On average, treatment can take anywhere from 6 to 18 months, though you may start seeing results in a matter of weeks.

Is Invisalign painful?

Invisalign is generally less painful than traditional braces. Some people may experience temporary discomfort for a few days at the beginning of each new stage of treatment as the teeth begin to shift. This discomfort typically subsides as your mouth adjusts to the new aligner.

Can I eat with my Invisalign aligners in?

No, you should remove your aligners while eating and drinking anything other than water. This prevents food from getting trapped beneath the aligners and protects them from damage and staining.

How much does Invisalign cost?

The cost of Invisalign treatment is generally comparable to traditional braces and can range from $3,000 to $7,000, depending on the specifics of your case. Many dental insurance plans cover a portion of the cost, and payment plans are often available to make the treatment more affordable.

How do I take care of my aligners?

To take care of your Invisalign aligners, rinse them under lukewarm water and brush them gently with a toothbrush. Avoid using hot water, which can warp the plastic. It’s also important to brush and floss your teeth before reinserting your aligners to maintain good oral hygiene.

Who is eligible for Invisalign?

Invisalign is suitable for teenagers and adults who have mild to moderate alignment issues. Your dentist or orthodontist can determine if Invisalign is the right treatment for you during a consultation.

Will wearing Invisalign aligners affect my speech?

Some people may experience a slight lisp when they first start wearing Invisalign aligners. However, this is typically temporary and should disappear as you become accustomed to wearing the aligners.
