Invisalign Q & A

What does Invisalign do?

Invisalign is a revolutionary new way to straighten teeth, offering an appealing alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments like braces. This treatment involves wearing clear plastic aligners over your teeth to align them over time gently.

It’s best to wear the aligners for at least 20 hours per day, but they can be removed for easy eating and teeth cleaning. While you’re not eating or brushing your teeth, the Invisalign aligners should remain in your mouth.

Why might Invisalign be a better option for you?

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. Invisalign offers the following benefits over braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches:

  • Invisibility, so people see your real teeth, not a mouthful of metal
  • Comfort, because the soft plastic won’t cut your mouth like sharp metal braces
  • Convenience, because you can remove them quickly whenever you need to brush, floss, or eat
  • Timing, because Invisalign treatments work up to 50% faster than other orthodontic techniques

Are you a good candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign is proven effective to treat mild to moderate dental misalignments, including:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Teeth misalignment after braces

Dr. Mihaylova may recommend an alternative treatment if you have major orthodontic and alignment issues. Book an appointment with Teodora Mihaylova, D.D.S. to find out if Invisalign is right for you.

What can I expect from Invisalign treatment?

First, Dr. Mihaylova examines your teeth to determine whether Invisalign is right for you. She might either make physical impressions of your teeth or create 3D images of them using a digital scanner. This helps Dr. Mihaylova develop a precise treatment plan.

Next, Dr. Mihaylova fits your teeth with customized clear, plastic aligners. The aligners gently move your teeth into ideal alignment while you wear them. New aligners may be made as your teeth begin to shift. This process continues until your smile is just right.
