Invisalign Q & A

person applying invisalign

What is Invisalign?

You have an innovative new alternative to braces: Invisalign. Your teeth will be progressively aligned over time thanks to clear, plastic aligners that fit over your teeth.

You can easily remove the aligners for teeth cleaning and eating, but you want to wear them for at least 20 hours per day for optimal results. While you’re not eating or brushing your teeth, the Invisalign aligners should remain in your mouth.

Why choose Invisalign over braces?

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. Curious about why Invisalign might be better than braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches? Check out these benefits:

  • Invisibility, so people 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 treatment in Fremont can help correct issues, such as:

  • Overcrowded teeth

  • Gaps between teeth

  • Rotated teeth

  • Teeth misalignment after braces

Invisalign might not be the right treatment for you if you have major alignment and orthodontic issues. Your Fremont dentist might recommend an alternative treatment if this is the case. Book an appointment with Shine Dental to find out if Invisalign is right for you.

What can I expect from Invisalign treatment?

Your Fremont dentist will start by examining your teeth to check that Invisalign is the right choice for you. She may use a digital scanner to create 3D images of your teeth or make physical impressions. This helps Your dentist develop a precise treatment plan.

Next, Your dentist fits your teeth with customized clear, plastic aligners. The aligners gently move your teeth into ideal alignment while you wear them. New aligners may be made as your teeth begin to shift. This process repeats until your smile has its new shape.

Talk to your Fremont dentist if you want to straighten your teeth without painful, unsightly braces by calling Shine Dental or booking an appointment online today.
