Invisalign Q&A

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that uses clear aligners made from SmartTrack® to gradually straighten your teeth. The treatment is much quicker than conventional braces, allowing most people to achieve their desired results within 6-12* months.

Invisalign aligners fit snugly over your teeth and are removable. That means you can attend social engagements without concern of unsightly metal, and you can remove your clear aligners at your discretion. You can also continue to eat your favorite snacks: including traditional braces no-nos like sunflower seeds, nuts, or apple slices. 

What’s more, the aligners are free of all chemicals, making them safe for people with allergies as well as pregnant women.

What types of alignment issues can Invisalign correct?

At Adler Dental Group, our team uses Invisalign to correct various alignment issues, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Crowding
  • Jaw misalignments
  • Crossbite
  • Underbite
  • Overbite

You might also benefit from orthodontic treatment with Invisalign if you have gaps between your teeth.

What does treatment with Invisalign involve?

At Adler Dental Group, Invisalign treatment begins with an in-office consultation. During the appointment, we conduct an oral exam and take a series of X-rays to assess the position and alignment of your teeth and jaw. 

If we determine you’re a good candidate for orthodontic treatment, we take impressions of your teeth. We upload the impressions to a computer design program and develop a custom care plan that maps out the step-by-step movements of your teeth and jaw.

After finalizing a plan, we send it to a dental laboratory. The laboratory uses the information to create a custom set of oral aligners that fit your mouth perfectly.  

A week or two later, you return to Adler Dental Group, and you try the aligners on. Throughout orthodontic treatment, you wear the aligners 20-22 hours a day, only removing them to eat or brush your teeth. 

Every few weeks, you visit the office and change into a new set of aligners. Each new set gradually moves your teeth into the optimal position, transforming your smile and oral health.

How do I keep my Invisalign aligners clean?

Invisalign aligners collect food particles and bacteria, so it’s important to clean them often. We recommend rinsing them in tap water several times a day and gently cleaning them with a soft-bristle toothbrush before going to bed at night. For more thorough cleanings, ask your provider about Invisalign cleaning crystals.
