Invisalign Q & A

Your Invisalign Questions, Answered

What does Invisalign involve?

Invisalign is a revolutionary new way to straighten teeth, offering an appealing alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments like braces. With Invisalign, clear plastic aligners fitted over your teeth will align your teeth little by little over time.

It’s best to wear the aligners for at least 20 hours per day, but they can be removed for easy eating and teeth cleaning. While you’re not eating or brushing your teeth, the Invisalign aligners should remain in your mouth.

Why might Invisalign be a better option for you?

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 when people see you, they see your real teeth, not a mouthful of metal
  • Comfort, so you don’t have to worry about your mouth getting cut up by pointy mental braces
  • Convenience, because you can remove them quickly whenever you need to brush, floss, or eat
  • Timing, because consistent Invisalign treatments work up to 50% quicker than other orthodontic techniques

Should I get Invisalign?

Mild to moderate dental misalignments are no match for Invisalign. Invisalign can help correct issues, such as:

  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Teeth misalignment after braces

If you have major orthodontic and alignment issues, Dr. Park may recommend a different treatment. Schedule an appointment to find out if Invisalign is right for you.

What can I expect from Invisalign treatment?

Dr. Park will start by examining your teeth to check that Invisalign is the right choice for you. He may take a physical impression of your teeth or use a digital scanning device to create 3-D images. With these, Dr. Park will be able to form an individualized treatment plan that suits your specific needs.

After this step, Dr. Park will customize plastic aligners to fit over your teeth. While you wear them, the aligners gradually push your teeth where they are supposed to go. As your teeth begin to shift, new aligners may be made. At the end of this process, your smile will have its new shape!
