Invisalign Q & A

What does Invisalign involve?

You have an innovative new alternative to braces: Invisalign. Your teeth will be progressively aligned over time thanks to clear, plastic aligners that fit over your teeth.

It’s best to wear the aligners for at least 20 hours per day, but you can remove them for easy eating and teeth cleaning. Invisalign should stay in your mouth if you aren’t eating or brushing your teeth.

Is Invisalign really better than braces?

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: People never see a mouthful of metal; they see your real teeth.
  • Comfort: Thanks to the smooth plastic, you won’t get the mouth irritation caused by sharp metal braces.
  • Convenience: With the ability to immediately remove them whenever you need to eat, floss, or brush your teeth, they’re easier to manage than braces.
  • Timing: With Invisalign, you can expect to see results up to 50% faster than with other orthodontic techniques.

Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign can effectively fix mild to moderate dental misalignments, such as:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Relapse after braces

Dr. Moskowitz may recommend an alternative treatment if you have major orthodontic and alignment issues. To see whether Invisalign is the best option for you, visit his office for a consultation.

What should I expect from an Invisalign treatment?

First, Dr. Moskowitz needs to examine your teeth to see if Invisalign is the ideal choice for you. He might either make physical impressions of your teeth or create 3D images of them using a digital scanner. With these, Dr. Moskowitz will be able to form an individualized treatment plan that suits your specific needs.

After that, Dr. Moskowitz will fit customized plastic aligners to your teeth. While you wear them, the aligners gradually push your teeth where they are supposed to go. To keep your teeth moving in the right direction, Dr. Moskowitz will occasionally make new aligners for you. Until your smile is perfect, this process will keep going.
