Frequently Asked Invisalign Questions

Your teeth are extremely important, not only for your health but for your overall confidence and appearance. It has never been more important to have straight teeth, as we are more visible now than ever with the advent of social media and the constant stream of pictures. Wouldn’t it be great if you could get the straight teeth that you have always wanted without having to use traditional metal braces? Invisalign has become increasingly popular as more and more adults and teens look for discreet ways to quickly and easily straighten their teeth. If you are interested in trying Invisalign aligners for yourself, come into Gruelle Dempsey Orthodontics to get your free consultation today. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get regarding Invisalign.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are custom made orthodontic clear aligners that gradually shift your teeth back into position over the course of a planned treatment window. These removable, plastic aligners allow patients to easily adjust to their braces without any of the discomfort or embarrassment caused by traditional braces.

How Does It Work?

The process begins with our team taking detailed 3D scans of your teeth and mouth. Once we have these images in hand, we then work to create a fully customized treatment plan to best suit your orthodontic needs. This treatment plan will give you an idea of how long the treatments will last and how much the overall procedure will cost. Once we have agreed on a treatment plan we get to work creating a set of custom made clear aligners. These aligners are custom made for your teeth to allow them to move slowly back into position to avoid any unnecessary discomfort.

You will wear each aligner for roughly one week, changing out your aligners to help your teeth get to the perfect positions steadily and comfortably. Your treatment time will depend on how much movement needs to be done to bring your teeth back to this perfect alignment.

What Are The Benefits Of Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners have several benefits ranging from the discreet nature of these removable aligners to the sheer ease of use. Most patients will only need to come in for checkup appointments every 8-10 weeks. You can easily take your aligners out anytime you want to as well, regardless of whether it is for an important date or if you just want to eat your favorite food. Try not to keep your aligners out for an extended time as your treatment time could be impacted if you keep your aligners out for a prolonged time.

One of the best features of Invisalign aligners is just how discreet they are. Most people that you interact with on a daily basis will have no idea that you are in the process of straightening your teeth at all.
