Invisalign Q & A

What are Invisalign aligners?

Invisalign liners provide a non-invasive, cutting-edge approach to straighten your teeth. Whether your teeth are crowded or gapped, you have an overbite or an underbite, or you just want to improve the overall spacing and alignment of your teeth, Invisalign can help in many cases.

These innovative dental appliances take a different approach to teeth straightening than traditional orthodontics. With Invisalign, you have less eating restrictions, easier cleaning, and no fixed braces. You don’t have to worry about mouth injuries with sports or what you can and can’t eat.

Since they’re clear and removable, your friends don’t even notice them, and you can even take them out for special occasions and events.

What happens when you wear Invisalign?

When you see the team at Brandon Orthodontics for Invisalign, the team performs a smile assessment to see if these FDA-approved clear aligners can improve how you feel about your teeth. Once they confirm that Invisalign is right for you, your provider creates your treatment plan.

An accurate digital model of your mouth allows them to build your treatment plan, addressing each and every tooth that’s out of place. 

When they arrive, your Brandon Orthodontics provider ensures they fit your mouth. They give you your next few aligners, along with a copy of your treatment plan, which tells you how long you should wear each one — typically a week or two. The plan also explains that you should:

  • Wear the aligners 20-22 hours a day
  • Take your aligners out to eat and clean your teeth
  • Brush and floss as you normally would
  • Schedule appointments every 6-8 weeks

To achieve optimal results, you should follow all of your provider’s recommendations. 

How does Invisalign work?

Each time you change your Invisalign clear aligners, the custom molding puts pressure on your teeth, slowly and gently moving them into place. These movements are tiny, but with each aligner change, your teeth shift and move toward their final positioning and the smile you’ve dreamed of.=

Only your provider can tell you how long your Invisalign treatment will be, but some patients get straighter teeth in just a year.
