Invisalign Q&A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a modern orthodontic system that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to get your teeth and bite into proper alignment.


Just like braces, your aligners reposition your teeth and jaw by exerting a small but constant amount of pressure on your teeth, gradually moving them into place. Unlike braces, however, your Invisalign aligners are comfortable, convenient, and virtually undetectable. 


Invisalign’s state-of-the-art system has become incredibly popular in recent years, having been used by about seven million people who desired straighter and healthier smiles.

What conditions does Invisalign treat?

Invisalign corrects many of the same alignment issues, as braces do, including:


  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth


Invisalign also treats malocclusions, or ill-formed bites, like:


  • Open bite
  • Crossbite
  • Underbite
  • Overbite


Some patients also choose to get Invisalign for cosmetic purposes, like generally straightening their teeth.

Why should I get Invisalign?

As a modern treatment, Invisalign has a number of advantages that distinguish it from other orthodontic treatments. Invisalign is:

Comfortable

Your aligners are made from plastic that’s smooth, flexible, and BPA-free, so they feel comfortable in your mouth and won’t tear up the insides of your cheeks.

Convenient

Your aligners are removable, so you can take them out whenever you need to brush, floss, or eat. This means that you don’t have to alter your diet during treatment, and you can keep your teeth clean without having to learn any special techniques or buying special tools. You simply remove your aligners whenever you need to brush or floss and put them back in when you’re done.

Discreet

The plastic in your aligners is clear, making them virtually invisible when they’re on your smile. Nobody will know that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment unless you tell them, and you’ll be able to smile without any feelings of self-consciousness. 

How do I get started with Invisalign?

Your journey with Invisalign begins by taking an impression or 3D scan of your mouth that your dentist uploads to a computer to make a virtual model of your smile.


They manipulate that model to map out all of the steps your teeth need to take to get into perfect alignment and send that information to a lab that designs a set of aligners for each of the steps in that journey. 


You wear your aligners every day for at least 22 hours a day. Every two weeks, you move on to the next set of aligners in your series, and every six weeks you visit the NowDental of Suffolk offices for a checkup on your progress.


As soon as you make your way through all of your aligners, your smile will be perfectly aligned, and you’ll wear a retainer to ensure that you maintain your new smile.
