Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a dental treatment designed to straighten your teeth. With Invisalign, you wear a series of clear thermoplastic custom aligners over your teeth. The aligners shift your teeth into place over time.

You can remove your aligner trays for teeth cleaning or eating, but you’ll need to wear your aligner trays for at least 22 hours daily for the best results. 

Invisalign is comfortable, easy to use, and discreet. Invisalign works up to 50% faster than certain other orthodontic treatments.

The soft thermoplastic trays don’t cut, poke, or irritate your mouth or gums like some of the sharp hardware of traditional metal braces. People can also look at your natural teeth, instead of seeing metal braces that can catch the light.

What can I expect with my Invisalign treatment?

Your dentist at Lone Star Dental Care evaluates your teeth and creates 3D images using advanced intraoral scanning technology. Innovative software allows you to preview your Invisalign results on a monitor.

Your dentist fits your customized plastic aligners to your teeth, and you wear your aligner trays for about two weeks before you move on to your next set to continue the process. Your dentist carefully monitors your progress and makes any adjustments as needed.

Invisalign is effective for children, teens, and adults. To monitor the duration that teens are wearing their aligners, Invisalign even has a blue compliance indicator.

Invisalign treatments can typically be completed in about 6-18 months. Following your Invisalign treatment, your dentist might give you a retainer you can wear to boost and help maintain your results.

Is Invisalign a good choice for me?

Invisalign is an excellent choice to address several dental health problems, such as:

  • Teeth misalignment
  • Rotated teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Underbite, open bite, crossbite, and overbite

During your personal consultation, your dentist can help you decide if Invisalign is the right treatment for you.

How should I care for my Invisalign aligners?

When you’re going through the Invisalign process, make sure you carefully follow your dentist’s instructions for home care. To care for your Invisalign aligners and optimize the process, you should:

  • Stop smoking to avoid staining them
  • Take them out to eat
  • Brush your teeth thoroughly following every meal
  • Use the Invisalign toothpaste or cleaning system and warm water for cleaning

Call Lone Star Dental Care immediately if you break or lose an aligner.
