Invisalign® Q & A

What is Invisalign?

With nearly 20 years of success, Invisalign is an extremely popular and proven alternative to conventional metal braces for straightening teeth. The system works through a series of clear, removable aligners that move your teeth into proper alignment little-by-little over time.

How does Invisalign work?

Using advanced technology, including 3-D computer imaging, Dr. Hedieh maps out your complete treatment plan, from the starting position of your teeth to the final desired position. A series of clear aligners is then custom-made at the Invisalign lab to fulfill this plan. Your aligners are worn in succession as your teeth are gradually nudged into the desired position. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and is then replaced by the next set in the series. This continues until the final position of your teeth is achieved. As with traditional braces, the duration of your treatment depends on the amount of movement required to achieve the desired outcome.

What does Invisalign treat?

Invisalign can correct a wide range of dental issues, including:

  • Gapped Teeth - a gradual shifting of the teeth
      • In many cases, the gap disappears faster than using traditional braces.

    • Crowded Teeth
      • Invisalign can help move the top teeth back into a place where they are properly in line.

    • Moderate overbites, underbites, and crossbites
        • Top Teeth Only

      • Invisalign can be used as a single arch treatment for those suffering from crossbite or an overbite.

      • Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ) - teeth that aren’t aligned correctly due to a misaligned joint in the jaw.
        • Invisalign can correct the bad bite that leads to chronic TMJ pain.

      What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?

      Invisalign aligners are uniquely developed from a thermoplastic material. Because they are clear, they’re virtually invisible. This makes Invisalign fit in with your day-to-day activities and interactions, as your “braces” will go unnoticed. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is flexible enough to allow you to eat and drink what you want by simply removing the aligners. And since there is no metal or sharp edges, there’s also no risk of irritation or cuts inside your mouth.
