Invisalign® Q & A

Floss Dental

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a patented teeth-straightening system that uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gently shift your teeth into optimal positions. The process works much in the same way as metal braces but lacks many of the drawbacks of traditional orthodontia.

Why choose Invisalign over metal braces?

The primary reason many men and women select Invisalign as an alternative to traditional metal braces is the aesthetic benefits. You’ll never need to experience a mouthful of metal to achieve a gorgeous, straighter smile. In fact, the clear plastic aligner trays fit so snugly over the surface of your teeth that most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them!

Additional benefits include:

  • No abrasions or friction to the soft tissues in your mouth
  • No need for appointments to repair broken wires or brackets
  • No special dental hygiene requirements
  • No dietary restrictions
  • Fewer visits to your dental specialist

For many, the benefits of Invisalign make the system a clear choice.

Am I a good candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign can correct many common alignment issues, including:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Open bite
  • Crossbite
  • Crowded teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • General misalignment

While Invisalign is a great option for many, there are some cases that metal braces can better address. Dr. Rewari can discuss your options with you during your initial consultation.

How does Invisalign straighten my teeth?

The process begins with your initial consultation. Dr. Rewari captures a digital scan of your mouth then uses the Invisalign software to create your treatment plan. You’ll even be able to see what your smile will look like once treatment is complete.

Next, the information from the scan is sent to the lab where your custom aligners are crafted. When they arrive, you return and Dr. Rewari shows you how to wear the top and bottom trays.

You wear your aligners for 22 hours or more each day, removing them only to eat or complete your oral hygiene routines. The aligners place just the right amount of pressure on your teeth to shift them. You then switch to a new set of aligners every couple of weeks until your smile is optimally aligned.

To find out if Invisalign might be right for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Rewari at your earliest convenience.
