Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Supported by two decades of research and more than 900 patents, Invisalign® is one of the world’s most trusted and advanced clear aligners.

Invisalign aligners are designed to straighten your teeth and align your bite by gradually but insistently pushing your teeth. Invisalign uses revolutionary technology to calculate the exact amount of force it takes to move your teeth without causing any pain.

What conditions can Invisalign treat?

Invisalign treats many of the same conditions as metal braces, including:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite 
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth

Invisalign works on adults, as well as children and adolescents with a mixture of baby and permanent teeth. 

What are the advantages of Invisalign?

Invisalign offers a variety of advantages, especially in comparison to traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are:

Discreet

Because they’re clear, neither your coworkers nor your classmates see your Invisalign aligners while you wear them. Because they snugly fit around the crooks and curves of your teeth, no one notices them protruding.

Comfortable

Made from smooth, flexible polyurethane SmartTrack® material, Invisalign aligners don’t hurt, and they don’t cut your gums and the inside of your mouth like braces can. The SmartTrack material also carefully controls teeth movement and gently presses your teeth, so their movement doesn’t cause you pain.

Easy to use

Another benefit of Invisalign aligners is their ease of use. Invisalign aligners are removable so you can take them out to clean them. When you remove them, you can also eat, brush, and floss like normal.

Fast results

If you wear your aligners consistently, Invisalign treatment typically yields much faster results than braces. 

How do I get Invisalign aligners?

To get started on the path toward a more beautiful, functional smile with Invisalign, book a consultation at our office. Dr. Olson and our team will take photos and impressions or scan your mouth to create a 3D image of your teeth. 

Invisalign uses the scan to develop aligners customized for your unique smile to help you reach the perfect alignment. This process includes trimming the aligners to fit your exact gumline. 

When the practice receives your aligners, they notify you so you can come in to pick them up. Your order includes multiple sets of aligners that you switch out every two weeks until your teeth hit their target alignment. 

If you have painful or unsightly teeth alignment, consider how Invisalign might change your life. Take a step toward the new and improved you by booking your consultation with our team at AnnMarie Olson DDS PA online or over the phone today.
