What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is a revolutionary orthodontic system that uses a series of custom-made, clear aligners to gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. These aligners are virtually invisible and are made of a smooth, comfortable plastic that won’t irritate your gums or cheeks.

Benefits of Invisalign®

  • Invisible: The clear aligners are barely noticeable, allowing you to straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
  • Removable: You can remove the aligners for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing, which helps maintain good oral hygiene.
  • Comfort: With no sharp metal brackets or wires, Invisalign® offers a more comfortable treatment experience.
  • Predictable Results: Using advanced 3D imaging technology, we can preview your treatment outcome before starting, allowing you to see how your teeth will look after treatment.

Ideal Candidates for Invisalign®

Invisalign® is suitable for teenagers and adults who have mild to moderate alignment issues, such as:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overbites, underbites, and crossbites

The Invisalign® Treatment Process

  1. Consultation: During your initial visit, we assess your dental structure and discuss your orthodontic goals to determine if Invisalign® is right for you.
  2. Custom Plan: We take digital impressions of your teeth to create a precise 3D model. Based on this model, a custom treatment plan is developed.
  3. Receiving Your Aligners: You’ll receive a series of aligners to wear, each one moving your teeth a little bit closer to their final position.
  4. Progress Monitoring: Regular check-ups ensure your treatment is progressing as planned and adjustments are made as necessary.

How to Care for Your Aligners

  • Daily Cleaning: Clean your aligners with a brush and lukewarm water or use the Invisalign® cleaning system. Avoid hot water as it could warp the plastic.
  • Proper Storage: When not in use, store your aligners in the case provided to protect them from damage and contamination.

Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign® at Canarsie Dental Office

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, custom-made, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth. It offers an aesthetic alternative to traditional metal braces.

How does Invisalign® work?

Invisalign® aligners are designed based on a 3D model of your teeth. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks before moving on to the next in the series, gradually shifting your teeth into their desired position.

How long does Invisalign® treatment take?

The duration of Invisalign® treatment varies depending on the complexity of the case but typically ranges from 12 to 18 months. Your dentist will provide a more specific timeline based on your individual needs.

Is Invisalign® noticeable?

Invisalign® aligners are nearly invisible when worn. They are made from a clear plastic material, which makes them much less noticeable than traditional metal braces.

Can I remove my Invisalign® aligners?

Yes, one of the major benefits of Invisalign® is that the aligners are removable. You can take them out while eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing, which helps maintain better oral hygiene compared to traditional braces.

Are there any restrictions on what I can eat during Invisalign® treatment?

No, since the aligners can be removed while eating, there are no dietary restrictions during Invisalign® treatment. This allows you to continue enjoying your favorite foods without worry.

How often do I need to wear my Invisalign® aligners?

For the best results, it is recommended that you wear your Invisalign® aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day. You should only remove them for eating, drinking anything other than water, brushing, and flossing.

How do I care for my Invisalign® aligners?

Clean your aligners regularly with Invisalign® cleaning crystals or by brushing and rinsing them in lukewarm water. Avoid using hot water as it can warp the aligners.

Is Invisalign® treatment painful?

Invisalign® treatment involves some pressure as your teeth gradually shift into place, which can cause temporary discomfort. However, many patients find it less painful than traditional braces.

How do I get started with Invisalign®?

To get started with Invisalign®, schedule a consultation at Canarsie Dental Office. During the consultation, your dentist will assess your smile and discuss whether Invisalign® is the right treatment for you.
