Common Invisalign Questions
Why Choose Invisalign Over Traditional Braces?
The following are some of the reasons that many of our patients prefer Invisalign clear braces over traditional metal braces:
- Discrete | Because Invisalign® is clear, you can remain confident as your smile improves. Unlike metal braces, people will hardly even notice that you’re wearing clear aligners!
- Smooth and Comfortable | The aligners are plastic, and don’t cause irritation in the way that traditional metal braces do.
- Removable | These aligners are easy to take off, and easy to clean. Not to mention they allow you to eat and drink whatever you want! No need to worry about food getting stuck in your brackets and wires.
- Confidence and Self-Esteem | Studies have shown that orthodontic treatment causes a significant increase in self-esteem and quality of life1. Having straight teeth also affects others’ perception of you. People with straight teeth are perceived as healthier, happier, and even smarter than those without2.
How Does Invisalign Work?
As with any dental procedure, the road to straight teeth begins with a consultation. When you visit us here at our Royal Oak dentist office, we will perform an evaluation and diagnosis to make sure Invisalign® is right for you.
During this process, you can expect x-rays, pictures, and impressions to be taken of your teeth. Invisalign® will take this and create a 3D image of your teeth, which allows us to create the right treatment plan for you.
Using Invisalign® technology, we can determine the movement of your teeth, and approximately how long the treatment will take.
Your individual treatment plan comes with customized aligners. They are made of BPA-free plastic and won’t irritate your cheeks or your gums. Just wear them through the day and remove them to brush your teeth, floss, and eat.
Then, every two weeks, you will receive a set of replacement aligners, which are designed to move you into the next stage of your treatment. Checkups are every six weeks. Make sure you keep your aligners on for 20-22 hours of your day during the entirety of your treatment.
