Invisalign Q&A

What is Invisalign? 

Invisalign is the revolutionary orthodontic treatment system that straightens your teeth without bulky metal braces. The clear, removable aligners are made of a sturdy thermoplastic material. While you wear the aligners, they apply controlled force to your teeth that gradually shifts them into proper alignment.

Over time, this controlled force promotes tooth movement and moves your teeth subtly. The result is a healthier-looking, straighter smile. The team at Ramona Dental Group specializes in providing this amazing orthodontic treatment system. 

How does Invisalign work? 

First, the team at Ramona Dental Group assesses the state of your teeth and makes sure you’re an ideal Invisalign candidate. Next, they use highly advanced scanning technology at the office to create your personalized treatment plan. These scans are used to come up with a detailed treatment plan that includes the precise direction of tooth movement. The team can even show you an approximate version of what your new smile will look like. 

Then it’s time to order your first set of aligners. You’ll get a new set of aligners every few weeks with minor adjustments that help continue the planned movement of your teeth. It’s important that you wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours per day to guarantee optimal results.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Since Invisalign doesn’t involve the metal wiring and brackets of traditional braces, you never have to worry about getting food stuck in your braces. You can actually take out your Invisalign aligners whenever you eat or brush your teeth. 

Also, Invisalign treatment is discreet. Often when you’re wearing your aligners, people can’t even tell you’re wearing a dental appliance. You can smile confidently while wearing the aligners. That means social situations, work, or school will be a breeze with Invisalign. 

How long does treatment with Invisalign take? 

Treatment plans vary depending on a host of factors, including your age and the state of your smile before starting Invisalign. On average, Invisalign patients wear aligners for approximately a year. However, treatment can take as little as a few months, or longer than a year. When you start Invisalign, the team at Ramona Dental Group will be able to tell you how long you’ll likely need to wear your aligners.
