Invisalign® Q & A

What is Invisalign®?

If you’re an adult and want straight teeth, you might hesitate to get braces since they’re more commonly used for children and adolescents. Invisalign gives you the opportunity to get a straight smile with subtlety. You won’t have to deal with inconvenient, unsightly metal appliances, but you’ll achieve the same gorgeous results.

While braces work by using tight wires to move your teeth, Invisalign devices are specifically shaped to your teeth and placed over them to move them into place over time gradually.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign works by using a series of clear, removable aligners that fit perfectly over your teeth, gradually moving them into place. The devices are made of a firm plastic that is free of latex, BPAs, and other allergenic or otherwise dangerous materials.

Before creating your first aligners, Dr. Meskin makes digital images of your teeth. Then, a digital rendering will be created to map the movements of your teeth throughout the treatment. This rendering is used to make the aligners that will place a small amount of force on your teeth to straighten them. You’ll need to come in for regular appointments so that your dentist can monitor the movement of your teeth and give you each device as you’re ready for it.

What are the Benefits of Invisalign?

There are many benefits to choosing Invisalign devices over braces. Benefits of Invisalign treatments include:

  • Invisibility
  • Removability
  • Comfort
  • No wires to scrape the inside of your mouth
  • Easy to clean

 

During an initial consultation, Dr. Meskin will assess the severity of your crooked teeth and determine how long the Invisalign treatment will take for you. No matter your age, Invisalign treatments can allow you to have a straight smile and a confidence boost without glue, metal, and wires.

What are the Drawbacks of Invisalign?

Invisalign is a gentle treatment that works over time, so it carries minimal risk. If the device is irritating your gums or lips, your dentist can cut it down or adjust it to fit better. You’ll have appointments to monitor the progress every four to six weeks, which are opportunities to bring up any issues you have with your device and mention any difficulties that it’s causing.

If you want a perfect, straight smile without a year or more of bulky braces, Invisalign is a great alternative. To find out if it’s the best option for you, call or schedule an appointment online with Aesthetic Dental Centers today. Dr. Meskin is our Invisalign expert, who has successfully completed dozens of cases over the past 10 years.
