Invisalign Q & A

Coxsackie Dental Arts

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign provides an attractive alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments like braces. It is a revolutionary new way to straighten teeth. This treatment involves wearing clear plastic aligners over your teeth to align them gently over time.

It’s best to wear the aligners for at least 20 hours per day, but they can be removed for easy eating and teeth cleaning. Wear the Invisalign aligners any time you are not eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth – that includes when you’re sleeping.

What are the benefits of Invisalign over braces?

More and more young adults are choosing Invisalign thanks to its ease of use and comfort. Invisalign offers the following benefits over braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches:

  • Invisibility, so people never see a mouthful of metal, they see your real teeth
  • Comfort, so you don’t have to worry about your mouth getting cut up by pointy mental braces
  • Convenience, because you can remove them quickly whenever you need to brush, floss, or eat
  • Timing, because with Invisalign, you can expect to see results up to 50% faster than with other orthodontic techniques

Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign can effectively fix mild to moderate dental misalignments, such as:

  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Relapse after braces

Dr. Trott will likely recommend an alternative treatment if you have major orthodontic and alignment issues. To see whether Invisalign is the best option for you, visit Coxsackie Dental Arts for a consultation.

What should I expect from an Invisalign treatment?

First, your teeth need to be examined by Dr. Trott to see if Invisalign is the ideal choice for you. His staff will take a physical impression of your teeth or use a digital scanning device to create 3D images. Dr. Trott will use these to develop a unique treatment plan for you.

Next, Dr. Trott fits your teeth with customized clear, plastic aligners. The aligners gently move your teeth into ideal alignment while you wear them. As your teeth begin to shift, new aligners will be made to continue the realignment process. In the end, your smile will have its new shape!
