Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that straightens your teeth with a series of clear plastic aligners. Invisalign has quickly become a popular alternative to traditional metal braces, with over 6 million beautiful smiles worldwide to show for it.

What conditions does Invisalign treat?

Invisalign treats many of the same conditions as traditional metal braces, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite

Many people elect to use Invisalign cosmetically, to generally straighten their teeth and aesthetically improve their smile.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign’s clear aligners are built from a virtual model of your smile and are designed to fit snugly over your teeth while slowly and gradually pushing them into their target alignment. 

The aligners do this by exerting a small yet constant amount of pressure on your teeth, progressively moving them toward their designated direction.

You wear your aligners all day, every day, taking them out only to brush, floss, and eat. Ideally, you have your aligners on for at least 22 hours each day. 

Every two weeks, when your teeth have finally settled into position in your current aligner, you move on to the next set of aligners in your series and continue to push your teeth toward their target alignment. 

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Compared to traditional metal braces, Invisalign is:

Comfortable

Your clear aligners are made from smooth, flexible polyurethane plastic, so they fit comfortably in your mouth and won’t tear up the insides of your cheeks.

Convenient

Your aligners are removable, meaning you don’t have to change your diet or learn any new techniques for cleaning your teeth. Simply remove your aligners when you need to brush, floss, or eat, and put them back in afterward.

Discrete

Your aligners are virtually invisible when you’re wearing them, so you don’t need to worry about the mouthful-of-metal look that comes with braces.

How do I get started with Invisalign?

Your journey with Invisalign begins with a consultation at A New Smile CC. The team takes a digital scan of your mouth to construct a virtual model of your smile. They use that model to calculate all of the steps necessary to move your teeth toward their target alignment.

The alignment plan is then sent to a lab, which turns it into your series of aligners. Once you get your aligners back from the lab, simply start wearing them to start working toward your dream smile.
