Invisalign Q & A




What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary teeth-straightening system that uses clear, nearly invisible aligners to gently and effectively move your teeth into their proper position. The Invisalign aligners are made of a special thermoplastic, that gradually forces your teeth into alignment over a series of fittings. The clear aligners sit perfectly on your teeth right below your gum line for a comfortable, discreet solution.

Heritage Comfort Dental has Invisalign-certified providers so you can trust that you care is n the hands of experts.

What kind of dental issues can Invisalign treat?

Invisalign aligners can fix almost any type of misalignment, including:

  • Gapped or crowded teeth
  • Overbite or underbite
  • Crossbite or open bite
  • General misalignment

However, while the Invisalign system can straighten almost any smile, the Heritage Comfort Dental team of specialists must first examine your mouth to determine if Invisalign is the best solution for you.

How does Invisalign work?

The Invisalign teeth straightening system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to shift your teeth into a straighter position.

During your Invisalign evaluation, your dentist takes a digital image of your mouth, which is then used to create your custom-made set of aligners and overall treatment plan. The computer program also allows your dentist to show you the exact movement of your teeth as you go through treatment, demonstrating your new smile.

You wear one set of aligners for about four weeks, then change to the next set, gradually moving your teeth into a straighter position. Generally, it’s recommended you wear your aligners for 22-24 hours a day to reap the most benefits. You should also take them out to eat, brush, and floss your teeth.

You may have to avoid sticky foods or gum that could pull on the aligners. You should still brush your teeth after you eat to remove any food particles before you put your aligners back in.

How long does Invisalign take?

Everyone’s treatment plan is individualized, but most patients can get the smile they want in 12-18 months.
