Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic system that straightens your smile with clear aligners made from smooth, flexible, BPA-free plastic. This “transparent orthodontics” treatment offers a comfortable, convenient, and discreet alternative to traditional metal braces, and is growing in popularity. Over 6 million people worldwide have chosen to straighten their smiles with Invisalign.

What conditions does Invisalign treat?

Invisalign treats many of the same conditions for which you might otherwise use traditional metal braces, including:


  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite


Many patients also use Invisalign to cosmetically enhance their smile with an overall straightening of their teeth.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

As a more modern system, Invisalign has several advantages over other orthodontic treatments, including:

Discretion

Your clear aligners are virtually invisible when you’re wearing them, so nobody will notice that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Convenience

Your aligners are removable, so you can take them out when you need to eat, brush, or floss. This saves you from having to change your diet and learn special techniques to keep your teeth clean during your treatment.

Comfort

The smooth plastic of your aligners is incredibly comfortable in your mouth and won’t tear up the insides of your cheeks like the metal brackets and wires of braces.

Speed

Invisalign can straighten most patients’ smiles in one year or less.

Does Invisalign work for teens?

Invisalign is a great orthodontic solution for teens. Invisalign Teen® even has a few extra features to help younger patients straighten their smile:

Eruption tabs

If you’re still waiting on permanent teeth to come in while you’re straightening your teeth, eruption tabs hold an open space in your aligner for when your tooth finally does emerge.

Compliance indicator

Invisalign Teen features a little blue dot on its aligners that fades off if you’re wearing them often enough. This makes it easier for Dr. Sobieraj and your and parents to ensure that you’re wearing your aligners properly.

How do I get started with Invisalign?

First, Dr. Sobieraj takes an impression of your mouth that he uploads into a computer to make a virtual model of your teeth. He sends that impression off to a lab that uses it to design your series of aligners.


You wear your aligners all day, every day, taking them out only when you need to eat, brush, or floss. Every two weeks, you move on to the next aligner in your set, until you eventually reach your target alignment and achieve your beautiful and healthy new smile.
