Invisalign Q&A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a type of orthodontic therapy that uses clear aligners to straighten your teeth and correct bite problems. Unlike conventional braces, which consist of metal wires and brackets, Invisalign aligners are removable and nearly invisible.

What can Invisalign fix?

Conte Dentistry recommends Invisalign to correct mild to moderate cases of:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Large gaps in teeth
  • Open bite
  • Crowded teeth

If you’re unhappy with the position of your teeth but don’t want to wear conventional braces, Invisalign can help straighten your smile discreetly.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign gives you the flexibility to straighten your teeth and correct bite problems without the discomfort and visibility of braces. Some of the most important benefits of Invisalign include:

Appearance

Most people can’t tell when you’re wearing Invisalign because they’re clear and mold to your teeth.

Comfort

The wires and brackets of braces often irritate the inside of your cheeks, while Invisalign is smooth and won’t lead to sores or small cuts.

Convenience

Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can take them out to eat and drink. No foods are off-limits with Invisalign, which is not the case with braces.

Oral hygiene

Because you can remove Invisalign to brush and floss, your teeth are easier to clean than they are when you’re wearing braces.

Time

Braces take about 18 months to three years to straighten your teeth, while Invisalign can help you achieve your goals in as little as 6-18 months.

What happens during the Invisalign process?

The Invisalign process is completely digital from start to finish. During the planning stages, the team uses a digital scanner to create your treatment plan and take impressions of your mouth.

The team uploads your impressions into the Invisalign software, which they use to design your plan. Invisalign uses this custom-made plan to fabricate your new aligners.

Every two weeks you’ll receive a new set of aligners. For the best results, wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day, taking them out only to eat, drink, and clean your teeth.

If any changes need to be made to your plan, the team at Conte Dentistry makes adjustments via the Invisalign software.

Invisalign is a discreet way to straighten your teeth on your own time. To learn more, call Conte Dentistry or schedule an appointment online today.
