Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear aligners to align your teeth and bite properly. Your aligners are made from a smooth, flexible, BPA-free plastic and are designed to be as invisible as possible when you’re wearing them. They look just like custom whitening trays or clear aligners, hugging to the unique contours of your smile and resting comfortably in your mouth.

How does Invisalign work?

Your Invisalign aligners are designed to fit snugly over your teeth and exert a small amount of pressure that gradually pushes them into alignment. You wear your aligners for a minimum of 20-22 hours per day, but you can take them out whenever you need to brush or floss your teeth or eat. You move on to a new set of aligners every two weeks as your teeth gradually move towards their target alignment. Once you’ve gone through all of the aligners in your series, you’ll have a beautifully straight smile.

Is Invisalign for me?

Invisalign is an excellent alternative to braces and can treat a wide range of mild to moderate orthodontic conditions, like:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite

Invisalign is suitable for a wide range of ages and is a popular treatment for both teens and adults.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

As a newer and more technologically advanced orthodontic treatment, Invisalign offers several benefits, including:

  • More comfortable than braces, with no sharp wires or brackets
  • Safe for athletic events and activities
  • Invisible in your mouth and more aesthetically pleasing
  • Removable, making it easier to keep your teeth clean during treatment
  • No need to change your diet during treatment

Invisalign offers a more convenient, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing approach to orthodontic treatment, which is why over seven million people worldwide have used it to straighten their smiles.

How do I get started with Invisalign?

If you’ve decided that Invisalign is for you, the team at Union Square Dental takes a series of X-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth and mouth. They send all of that information to the Invisalign laboratories, where your series of aligners are fabricated. Once your aligners are back from the lab, you simply start wearing them and your way towards a straighter smile.
