Invisalign Q & A
What is Invisalign?
With Invisalign, you use a series of removable, clear, thermoplastic aligner trays that gently shift your teeth into alignment.
Your Invisalign trays are actually removable, but you must be sure you wear your aligner trays for a minimum of twenty to twenty two hours every single day for the best benefits. In the event that you are not brushing your teeth, eating, or posing for a specific photo, your Invisalign tray should stay in your mouth.
Why should I choose Invisalign?
- Gaps or spaces between teeth
- Teeth misalignment
- Rotated teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
What’s involved in Invisalign treatment?
Your dentist fits your custom plastic aligners to your teeth, and when you are wearing your aligner trays, the trays gently shift your teeth into place.
You normally visit PK Cosmetic and Family Dentistry every 6 to 8 days for a quick assessment, and your dentist sends you home with several trays. The Invisalign straightening process continues until you are pleased with the appearance and feel of your new smile.
You are able to complete most Invisalign treatments in just 12-18 months. In some instances, you could finish your Invisalign treatment in as little as 6 months.
What is Propel?
Propel is a simple device you bring home and place in your mouth over your Invisalign aligners for 5 minutes each day. The device delivers gentle and safe vibrations and uses your body’s biology to stimulate faster tooth movement by raising the rate of bone remodeling, so your teeth can be more quickly guided into their preferred place.
What exactly are the advantages of Invisalign?
- Fewer office visits
- Effective and fast treatment
