Invisalign Q & A
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a dental teeth-straightening treatment involving a series of clear aligners that you wear over your teeth. Over time, the thermoplastic aligners gently align and shift your teeth into place.
For eating and teeth cleaning, you can easily remove your aligners, but you should make sure you wear your aligners for a minimum of 20-22 hours daily for the best results.
Invisalign is an excellent alternative to traditional teeth-straightening treatments like metal braces.
What are the benefits of Invisalign compared to traditional metal braces?
Invisalign can realign crooked and misaligned teeth and provides ease of use, comfort, and discretion.
Wanuck, Hier & Associates offers several options, such as traditional braces and clear braces. The team offers Invisalign due to the myriad benefits. Invisalign works up to 50% faster than numerous other orthodontic methods.
Invisalign is available for both adults and children. It’s convenient and comfortable, and the soft thermoplastic doesn’t poke, cut, or irritate your mouth or gums like some of the sharp hardware of metal braces.
You might choose the discrete, clear, and comfortable thermoplastic aligner trays, so people can see your natural teeth, instead of seeing your traditional metal braces.
Invisalign even has a blue compliance indicator to help monitor the duration that adolescents are wearing their aligner trays.
How do I know if Invisalign is the right choice for me?
Invisalign can address several dental health problems, such as:
Spaces between teeth
During your personal consultation, Dr. Wanuck can help you decide if it’s the right treatment for you.
What is involved in Invisalign treatment?
Dr. Wanuck begins by evaluating your teeth and digitally scanning your teeth into 3-D images to create your personalized treatment plan. Wanuck, Hier & Associates offers impressionless braces with an advanced intraoral scanner.
With Invisalign, you can preview your results on a monitor with the innovative software.
Dr. Wanuck fits your customized plastic aligners to your teeth. You wear your aligner trays for about two weeks before you move on to your next set of custom aligners to continue the process. Dr. Wanuck monitors your progress and makes adjustments if necessary.
Invisalign treatments can be completed in 6-18 months.
Dr. Wanuck might give you a retainer to wear after your Invisalign treatment to boost and help maintain your results.
