Invisalign Q & A
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign provides an attractive alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments like braces. It is a revolutionary new way to straighten teeth. Your teeth will be progressively aligned over time thanks to clear, plastic aligners that fit over your teeth.
You can easily remove the aligners for teeth cleaning and eating, but you want to wear them for at least 20 hours per day for optimal results. If you’re not eating or brushing your teeth, Invisalign aligners should stay in your mouth.
What are the benefits of Invisalign over braces?
Due to its comfort and ease of use, Invisalign is an increasingly popular treatment for misaligned teeth, especially among young adults. Curious about why Invisalign might be better than braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches? Check out these benefits:
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, with the ability to immediately remove them whenever you need to eat, floss, or brush your teeth
Timing, because Invisalign treatments work up to 50% faster than other orthodontic techniques
Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign is proven effective to treat mild to moderate dental misalignments, including:
- Crowded teeth
- Spaces between teeth
- Rotated teeth
- Relapse after braces
For major alignment and orthodontic issues, a different treatment may be recommended by Dr. Bock. Book an appointment with Cityview Dental Arts to find out if Invisalign is right for you.
What is involved in Invisalign treatment?
First, your teeth need to be examined by Dr. Bock to see if Invisalign is the ideal choice for you. He might either make physical impressions of your teeth or create 3D images of them using a digital scanner. Using these, Dr. Bock will develop a precise treatment plan.
After this step, Dr. Bock will customize plastic aligners to fit over your teeth. As you wear them, the aligners smoothly shift your teeth into perfect alignment. As your teeth move, new aligners may be made to continue progress. This process repeats until your smile has its new shape.
What is same-day Invisalign?
You don’t have to wait weeks on end to get the Invisalign process started. At Cityview Dental Arts, Dr. Bock can have you in and out of the office in just one easy visit.
If you want straighter teeth, without the hassle of waiting between appointments, please ask about the Quick Start Invisalign program to find out if a same-day Invisalign treatment is right for you.
