Invisalign Q & A

What does Invisalign involve?

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. While you’re not eating or brushing your teeth, the Invisalign aligners should remain in your mouth.

Is Invisalign really better than braces?

Because Invisalign is so comfortable and easy to use, it is becoming a more and more popular way to straighten teeth, particularly with young adults. Invisalign offers many benefits over traditional orthodontic approaches, like braces. These benefits include:

  • 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, because you can remove them quickly whenever you need to brush, floss, or eat
  • Timing, because Invisalign treatments work up to 50% faster than other orthodontic techniques

Should I get Invisalign?

Invisalign can effectively fix mild to moderate dental misalignments, such as:

  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Relapse after braces

If you have major orthodontic and alignment issues, Dr. Hurtado may recommend a different treatment. The best way to find out if Invisalign is right for you is by scheduling an appointment.

What should I expect from an Invisalign treatment?

Dr. Hurtado will first examine your teeth to determine whether Invisalign is the best treatment method for you. He may take digital X-rays of your teeth or make physical impressions. Dr. Hurtado will use these to develop a unique treatment plan for you.

After this step, Dr. Hurtado will customize plastic aligners to fit over your teeth. The aligners will gradually move your teeth into their proper positions as you wear them. As your teeth begin to shift, new aligners may be made. At the end of this process, your smile will have its new shape!
