Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the modern solution to teeth straightening. Instead of traditional approaches that use wires and brackets, Invisalign uses plastic aligner trays to reposition your teeth gently.

Each Invisalign aligner is custom-made and comfortable. Their clear design also makes them incredibly discreet. Invisalign aligners are removable, too, so they don’t interfere with your dental hygiene.

The Invisalign system offers a teeth straightening solution without the discomfort of traditional braces and is equally effective with adults and teenagers.

What dental issues does Invisalign correct?

The Invisalign system is capable of not only moving your teeth horizontally and vertically but of rotating them as well. Specific dental issues that Invisalign can address include:

  • Bite issues
  • Overcrowding
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gaps or spaces

During your initial consultation at MediDental Care, your team member determines if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign during a dental examination.

How does Invisalign work?

The revolutionary technology behind Invisalign guarantees precise and reliable results. To develop your personalized teeth straightening plan, your MediDental Care team member first takes digital X-rays and impressions of your mouth.

Using Invisalign’s technology, your provider can then create a 3D image of your teeth and mouth. This image enables them to outline the specific changes your teeth need to make so you can achieve your perfect smile. Your dentist can also offer a sneak peek at the smile you can expect when you finish your Invisalign treatment.

Once your teeth straightening strategy is determined, your MediDental Care specialist fabricates your customized aligner trays. For them to be effective, you wear them 20-22 hours each day -- only removing them to eat or clean your teeth.

Throughout your treatment, you change Invisalign aligner trays every one to two weeks. Your MediDental Care expert monitors your progress at regular appointments every six to eight weeks.

Invisalign treatment typically takes a year.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

In addition to avoiding the unsightly appearance and discomfort of traditional braces, Invisalign offers several advantages, including:

  • Making it easier to maintain good dental hygiene
  • Fewer dental appointments throughout the process
  • Removable aligners that eliminate the need to restrict your diet
  • Practically invisible aligner trays for discreet teeth straightening
  • Reliable and predictable results thanks to 3D Invisalign software
  • Quality materials that are smooth and comfortable causing little to no irritation
