Invisalign Q & A

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is popular dental treatment used for straightening teeth. The aligner trays are made of a thermoplastic material and are custom made for each patient. These aligners are virtually invisible so they will not be easily noticed. You will be supplied with a series of aligners to wear that progressively reposition the teeth. This process is mapped out in advance during the development of the treatment plan. Invisalign aligners work by moving your teeth through the appropriate placement of controlled force. Invisalign not only controls the force but also the timing of the force application.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

The aligners Invisalign uses are made from an invisible thermoplastic material that makes it almost impossible for people to tell you are wearing them. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are removable so they don’t interfere with day-to-day activities such as eating, drinking, or brushing and flossing. There are no metal or wire adjustments, making the initial fitting at the dentist’s office much shorter.

What does Invisalign treat?

Invisalign can treat many different dental issues including:

  • Gaps - Invisalign offers a gradual shifting of the teeth to close the gap.
  • Crowded Teeth - Invisalign treatment can help give you the straight smile that you want while easing the overcrowding in the mouth.
  • Open Bite - Invisalign can help move the top teeth back into a place where they are properly in line.
  • Top Teeth Only - Invisalign for top teeth only is a good option for people suffering from a crossbite or an overbite. It’s referred to as single arch treatment.
  • TMJ - Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders are caused by teeth that are not aligned correctly because the joint in the jaw is misaligned. Invisalign can correct the bad bite that leads to chronic TMJ pain.
