Invisalign Q & A

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign is an innovative new way to straighten teeth. It offers a great alternative to traditional teeth-straightening 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. If you’re not eating or brushing your teeth, Invisalign aligners should stay in your mouth.

Why choose Invisalign over braces?

Due to its comfort and ease of use, Invisalign is an increasingly popular treatment for misaligned teeth, especially among young adults. Invisalign offers the following benefits over braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches:

  • Invisibility, so people never see a mouthful of metal, they see your real teeth
  • 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

Is Invisalign right for me?

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

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

For major alignment and orthodontic issues, a different treatment may be recommended by our specialists in our Coxsackie, NY office. The best way to find out if Invisalign is right for you is by scheduling an appointment.

What is involved in Invisalign treatment?

First, the dentist will examine your teeth to determine whether Invisalign is right for you. He / She may use a digital scanner to create 3-D images of your teeth or make physical impressions. The specialist will use these to develop a unique treatment plan for you.

Next, the dentist will fit your teeth with customized clear, plastic aligners. As you wear them, the aligners smoothly shift your teeth into perfect alignment. New aligners may be made as your teeth begin to shift. Until your smile is perfect, this process will keep going.

If you want to straighten your teeth without unsightly, painful braces, talk to your dentist about Invisalign by calling Hudson Dental Arts or booking an appointment online today.
