Invisalign® Q & A
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a system that straightens your teeth and corrects your bite with clear aligners that are almost invisible.
To achieve a beautiful smile, you wear customized, clear, removable trays on your top and bottom teeth that slowly shift them into the desired position.
Each plan is customized according to the individual needs of the patient. When you complete your treatment plan, you can enjoy having an aligned bite and straight teeth.
What can Invisalign correct?
Invisalign can treat most of the same issues as traditional braces, including:
- Open bite
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
During your consultation, Dr. Trogan talks to you about the results you can expect with Invisalign.
How does Invisalign work?
Your first appointment begins with taking X-rays and an impression of your teeth that get sent to a lab where dental experts create your custom trays.
When your clear aligners are ready, you wear them 20-22 hours a day for optimum results. You can take them out to eat, drink, and brush and floss your teeth.
You trade out your current trays for new ones every two weeks until your teeth reach their final position. The trays make small adjustments to your teeth, shifting them slowly over time.
Dr. Trogan tailors your treatment to your needs to give you the most beautiful smile possible.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign not only brings your teeth into alignment, but it can help you avoid dental issues. For example, tooth decay can easily develop in hard-to-reach places.
Other benefits include:
- Easy to clean
- No food or drink limitations
Invisalign also gives you successful results, correcting your orthodontic issues and making it easier to take care of your oral health.
How often do I come in for appointments when wearing Invisalign aligners?
You only need to see Dr. Trogan every six weeks for a checkup to ensure your teeth are moving as planned. Invisalign offers a much more convenient option compared to traditional braces that require more frequent visits.
The average Invisalign treatment lasts about a year, depending on your case. Your timeline should be predictable before you start wearing your aligners.
