Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary treatment that straightens your teeth, whether you’re a teenager or an adult, without the look of traditional metal braces, using clear, removable aligners instead. Uptown Dental & Orthodontics also offers Invisalign Swift, which might be right for you if your bite is intact, but you want to correct issues such as minor spacing or crowding problems.

At Uptown Dental & Orthodontics, the team serves as speakers and educators for Invisalign. They’re highly qualified to treat your condition and desire for straight teeth with the highest level of care.

Is Invisalign right for me?

The team at Uptown Dental & Orthodontics can determine if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign orthodontic treatment.  

Invisalign is known for improving teeth that are:

  • Crowded
  • Overlapping
  • Gapped
  • Misaligned

Invisalign can also correct:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite

After an evaluation with your dentist, you can both make a decision together about using Invisalign to improve your smile.

What is Invisalign treatment like?

Before your treatment begins, Uptown Dental & Orthodontics uses the iTero® 3D digital scanner to take images of your teeth, so you won’t have to endure the distaste or mess of getting traditional impressions. The imaging helps create your personalized plan to transform your smile.

To straighten your teeth, you receive customized aligner trays that fit on your teeth. The number of trays you receive throughout your treatment depends on the amount of movement your teeth need to achieve.

You wear the aligners for about 20-22 hours a day. After a 1-2 week period, you move on to the next set of aligners. 

With Invisalign, you have the freedom to remove the aligners to eat and brush your teeth. When you’re wearing them, they aren’t noticeable since they’re clear. In addition, Invisalign can get your teeth straight faster than traditional braces.

After a thorough exam, Uptown Dental & Orthodontics can determine if Invisalign is right for you and how long you can expect treatment to last.

How will my teeth stay straight after Invisalign?

When you finish with all of your trays and your teeth are straight, the team at Uptown Dental & Orthodontics creates a custom-made retainer to keep your teeth in place. At first, you typically wear your retainer during the day and at night until your teeth settle. Then you can wear it at night only.
