Invisalign Q & A
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses clear aligner technology to straighten teeth without brackets or wires. Clear aligners, or trays, fit over your teeth to shift them into proper alignment without being obvious to other people. The treatment is noninvasive but can produce dramatic aesthetic results.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Choosing Invisalign to straighten crooked teeth offers you numerous benefits including:
- Straighter teeth
- Easy use
- A better bite
- A more aesthetically pleasing smile
- Short treatment times
You might wear Invisalign clear aligners for about 12-18 months to reach your desired results and notice improvements after just a few weeks.
Is Invisalign right for me?
To find out if Invisalign is the right choice for you, Dr. Rahman and his team review your dental history, take dental X-rays, and examine your teeth and gums. Invisalign is an effective orthodontic treatment for adults and teenagers seeking more aesthetically pleasing smiles.
What is Invisalign treatment like?
During your first Invisalign appointment, Dr. Rahman takes digital scans of your teeth and bite, so a dental lab can create a series of custom-made aligners. Modern technology allows you to view what your end result will look like.
Once the aligners are ready, you can begin wearing them for 20-22 hours every day. Take them out of your mouth to eat, brush your teeth, and floss. Every one or two weeks, you can switch to the next set of aligners until your treatment is complete.
How should I care for Invisalign aligners?
To care for your aligners and maintain optimal oral hygiene, use the Invisalign cleaning system available online or through the Floral Dental Care, PC, team.
You can also brush the aligners with toothpaste and a toothbrush and rinse them in warm water. Brush after every meal, as keeping your aligners clean helps prevent staining.
Avoid using hot water as it can warp the plastic.
Contact the team at Floral Dental Care, PC, if your aligners break or get damaged. After your treatment is complete, Dr. Rahman might recommend you wear a retainer to prevent teeth from shifting out of their new alignment.
