Invisalign® Q & A
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an innovative new way to straighten teeth. It offers a great alternative to traditional teeth-straightening treatments like braces. This treatment involves wearing clear plastic aligners over your teeth to align them over time gently.
You can easily remove the aligners for teeth cleaning and eating, but you want to wear them for at least 20 hours per day for optimal results. While you’re not eating or brushing your teeth, the Invisalign aligners should remain in your mouth.
Why choose Invisalign over braces?
Because Invisalign is so comfortable and easy to use, it is becoming a more and more popular way to straighten teeth, particularly with young adults. Curious about why Invisalign might be better than braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches? Check out these benefits:
- Invisibility, so people never see a mouthful of metal, they see your real teeth
- Comfort, so you don’t have to worry about your mouth getting cut up by pointy mental braces
- Convenience, with the ability to immediately remove them whenever you need to eat, floss, or brush your teeth
- Timing, because consistent Invisalign treatments work up to 50% quicker than other orthodontic techniques
Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign can effectively fix mild to moderate dental misalignments, such as:
- Overcrowded teeth
- Spaces between teeth
- Rotated teeth
- Relapse after braces
Dr. Levi may recommend an alternative treatment if you have major orthodontic and alignment issues. To see whether Invisalign is the best option for you, visit Murrieta Family Dental Group for a consultation.
What should I expect from an Invisalign treatment?
First, Dr. Levi will examine your teeth to see if Invisalign is the ideal choice for you. She may take a physical impression of your teeth or use a digital scanning device to create 3-D images. This helps Dr. Levi develop a precise treatment plan.
Then Dr. Levi customizes clear, plastic aligners that fit your teeth. The aligners gently move your teeth into ideal alignment while you wear them. As your teeth move, new aligners may be made to continue progress. This process repeats until your smile has its new shape.
Talk to Dr. Levi if you want to straighten your teeth without painful, unsightly braces by calling Murrieta Family Dental Group or booking an appointment online today.
