Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontics treatment that consists of clear plastic aligners that fit comfortably over your natural teeth, slowly shifting them into a more desirable position over time. Invisalign aligners are free from BPA, BPS, metal, latex, and gluten. The treatment is safe and highly effective for perfecting the look of your smile without being noticed by others.


Which dental issues can Invisalign address?

Invisalign treatment can correct the following dental problems:

  • Tooth crowding
  • Overlapping teeth or jaw
  • Misaligned jaw or bite
  • Tooth gaps

Treatment with aligners is more discreet than traditional braces, and it’s typically faster. It’s a simple solution that creates flawless smiles. 


Am I a candidate for Invisalign?

To determine if you’re a candidate for Invisalign treatment, the Reality Bites Dental team discusses your goals and reviews your oral health history. They take a look at your gums and teeth and complete dental X-rays if necessary before tailoring a customized treatment plan.


What should I expect during Invisalign treatment?

Your dentist digitally scans your mouth to create custom-fitted aligners. A dental lab makes aligners that conform perfectly over the surface of your teeth. Your dentist ensures a comfortable fit and explains how to use the aligners.

Simply wear your aligners for 20-22 hours a day for 1-2 weeks before switching to the next set of aligners in your treatment. Remove the aligners to eat and brush and floss your teeth. Keep them clean using the Invisalign cleaning system or as directed by your dentist. Rinse your aligners in warm water (avoid hot water).

It’s vital to attend follow-up appointments with your dentist to ensure Invisalign treatment is effective. Your orthodontics treatment might last 3-18 months, sometimes longer, as treatment times vary from person to person. 


What happens afterward?

After treatment, you can enjoy the benefits of a beautiful, vibrant, perfect smile. Wearing a retainer helps keep your teeth in an ideal position long-term, preventing them from shifting out of place. You might wear a retainer at night when you sleep or during certain times of the day.
