Invisalign® Q & A

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a popular treatment option for straightening teeth. The aligners are made of thermoplastic material and are virtually invisible. Invisalign aligners are custom-made for each patient. You will be supplied with a series of aligners, each one making slight adjustments to the positioning of the teeth. This process is mapped out in advance by your doctor depending on your specific needs. Invisalign aligners work by moving your teeth through the appropriate placement of controlled force. The main difference is that Invisalign not only controls the force, but also the timing of the force application.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are made using an invisible thermoplastic material so that no one will know you are wearing them. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign are removable making them convenient and flexible allowing you to remove your aligners to eat and drink, or to brush and floss as you would normally do. There are no metal or wire adjustments, making the initial fitting at the dentist’s office much shorter.

What does Invisalign treat?

Invisalign is a fantastic option for the following dental issues:

  • Gaps - The Invisalign aligners offer a gradual shifting of the teeth to close the gap. It is common in many cases for the gap between teeth to disappear faster than using traditional braces. Once your treatment is finished, you can enjoy your gap-free smile.
  • 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 positive option for people suffering from cross bite or an overbite. It is 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.
