Invisalign Q & A
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic system that uses custom clear aligners to straighten your teeth and align your bite. Invisalign aligners gradually but consistently push your teeth into place without the need for surgery.
Using advanced technology and 3D imaging of your teeth, Invisalign calculates the exact amount of force it will require to shift your teeth without causing you pain.
What conditions can Invisalign treat?
Invisalign treats most of the same conditions treated by traditional metal braces, including:
- Open bite
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Widely spaced teeth
Dr. Morell offers Invisalign solutions to adults, adolescents, and children, even those children with a mix of baby and permanent teeth.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign clear aligners offer their wearers several benefits, especially in comparison to regular metal braces. These benefits include:
Because they are clear, Invisalign aligners are difficult to spot with the naked eye. Neither your co-workers nor your classmates will notice them. Also, because they snugly fit around the crooks and bends of your teeth, Invisalign aligners don’t protrude at all.
Invisalign aligners are incredibly comfortable because they are made of a smooth, flexible polyurethane (plastic) material. They don’t hurt, and they don’t cut your gums and the inside of your mouth like wire-and-bracket braces can. The aligner material also prevents pain by carefully controlling teeth movement and gently pressing your teeth.
Ease of use
Another advantage of Invisalign aligners is how easy they are to use. They’re removable. You can take them out to clean them whenever you want. Also, when you’re not wearing them, you can eat, brush, and floss like normal.
Finally, if you wear your Invisalign aligners consistently, your treatment will yield fast results, especially in comparison to braces.
Are Invisalign aligners right for me?
Invisalign aligners are an excellent solution for many people. To find out if they’re a good fit for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Morell. If she believes that Invisalign can help you, she scans your mouth to create a 3D image, then sends it along to the lab.
At the lab, the team develops your aligners to your exact specifications, trimming the aligners to perfectly fit your teeth and gums.
A few weeks after your initial appointment, Dr. Morell calls you back in to give you your aligners. They come in multiple sets, which you switch out every two weeks until you achieve your target alignment.
If you want an alternative to braces, look no further than Invisalign. To set up your appointment, reach out to Morell Dental Care, online or over the phone today.
