Invisalign Q & A

What does Invisalign do?

You have an innovative new alternative to braces: Invisalign. With Invisalign, clear plastic aligners fitted over your teeth will align your teeth little by little over time.

It’s best to wear the aligners for at least 20 hours per day, but they can be removed for easy eating and teeth cleaning. If you’re not eating or brushing your teeth, Invisalign aligners should stay in your mouth.

What are the benefits of Invisalign over braces?

Because Invisalign is so comfortable and easy to use, it is becoming a more and more popular way to straighten teeth, particularly with young adults. Invisalign offers many benefits over traditional orthodontic approaches, like braces. These benefits include:

  • Invisibility, so when people see you, they see your real teeth, not a mouthful of metal
  • Comfort, thanks to the smooth plastic, you won’t get the mouth irritation caused by sharp metal braces
  • Convenience, with the ability to immediately remove them whenever you need to eat, floss, or brush your teeth
  • Timing, because Invisalign treatments work up to 50% faster than other orthodontic techniques

Are you a good candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign can effectively fix mild to moderate dental misalignments, such as:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Relapse after braces

Invisalign might not be the right treatment for you if you have major alignment and orthodontic issues. Dr. Porsch might recommend an alternative treatment if this is the case. To see whether Invisalign is the best option for you, visit Porsch Dental for a consultation.

What should I expect from an Invisalign treatment?

Dr. Porsch will first examine your teeth to determine whether Invisalign is the best treatment method for you. He / She might either make physical impressions of your teeth or create 3D images of them using a digital scanner. Using these, Dr. Porsch will develop a precise treatment plan.

Then Dr. Porsch customizes clear, plastic aligners that fit your teeth. The aligners will gradually move your teeth into their proper positions as you wear them. As your teeth move, new aligners may be made to continue progress. This process continues until your smile is just right.
