Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign® orthodontic treatment?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment process that involves wearing a series of clear, plastic aligners that fit snugly over the surface of your teeth. Over time, the aligners gradually straighten your teeth, but without the use of metal wires, brackets, or rubber bands. 

Invisalign aligners are made of an FDA-approved thermoplastic known as SmartTrack®. SmartTrack is virtually invisible and free of all allergens, including latex, gluten, BPS, and BPA.

Am I a good candidate for Invisalign?

The only way to know if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign is to schedule an appointment with the team at the practice of Goli Javaher, DDS. Following an oral exam, review of your medical history, and discussion of your treatment, the team can determine if you benefit from Invisalign. The team typically recommends Invisalign for patients who are 14 and older. Younger children typically aren’t mature enough to clean and care for their aligners. 

What types of issues can Invisalign correct?

Invisalign treatment is incredibly versatile and can correct a wide-variety of issues, including: 

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite
  • Underbite
  • Crowded teeth

Invisalign oral aligners can also correct gaps or spaces between your teeth. 

What is the process for getting Invisalign aligners?

If the team at the practice of Goli Javaher, DDS determines you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, they develop a unique digital treatment plan that maps out the exact movements of your teeth. Every two to three weeks, you return to the office to receive a new set of aligners. At each appointment, the team monitors your progress and ensures your aligners fit comfortably and correctly.

To achieve the best possible results, it’s recommended that you wear your aligners between 20-22 hours each day. On average, Invisalign treatment takes between 12-18 months. However,  many patients notice improvements in their smile right away. 

How do I keep my Invisalign aligners clean?

Caring for your Invisalign aligners is simple and hassle-free. Simply rinse them with cool tap water before and after meals, and brush them gently with your toothbrush at least once every day. For more thorough cleanings, ask your provider about the Invisalign Cleaning System.
