Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment used to straighten teeth and enhance smiles in less time and with more convenience than with traditional braces. 

By wearing these clear, removable aligners, you can shift your teeth into their optimal place. The best part about the whole process is that no one can even tell you’re wearing a dental appliance.

For all these reasons, Invisalign has quickly become one of the most popular choices when it comes to orthodontics for both teens and adults. 

How does Invisalign work?

Once you decide on using Invisalign to straighten your teeth, Dr. Roytberg uses cutting-edge digital scan technology to map your treatment plan. The technology even allows you to see what your smile will look like once treatment is complete.

Your digital impressions are then used to custom-create your aligners. When your first set of aligners is ready, you’ll need to start wearing them right away. For optimal results, wear your aligners at least 20-22 hours each day, removing them only to eat and brush your teeth.

Every few weeks you’ll receive a new set of aligners. Each new set is slightly different, applying new pressure and maintaining the planned movement of your teeth.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

It doesn’t matter if you’re at school or if you work full time, smiling with a mouthful of metal isn’t ideal. It can even be embarrassing, and tasks like eating and brushing your teeth can be difficult. 

However, with clear, removable aligners, nobody can even tell you’re wearing a dental appliance. They allow you to smile with confidence throughout your Invisalign treatment. 

Invisalign is great for patients with busy schedules since you only need to check in with Dr. Roytberg every six weeks or so for simple evaluations. During these visits, there’s no painful tightening or adjusting of wires, just minor adjustments. 

How long does treatment with Invisalign take?

On average, treatment with Invisalign lasts about one year. In some rare cases, such as with severe malocclusions, it can last up to 18 months. 

The length of your treatment time can vary widely depending on several factors, including your age, the current state of your smile, and how often you wear your aligners.
