Invisalign FAQs

A bright and beautiful smile is a must in today’s digital world where practically everything is captured on camera. Invisalign is a popular orthodontic treatment that is used to straighten teeth over time. Below, Dr. Dave Moghadam, answers Invisalign FAQs. 

What’s the Invisalign?

Invisalign is a great alternative to braces. It allows patients to go through treatment without bulky, metal brackets and wires. So, how does it work? When you visit our dental office in Easton, PA, we will use a 3D imaging technology to create a custom treatment plan. Here, we will show you how your teeth will be positioned once treatment is over. Then, you’ll be given your first series of aligners, which will slowly move your teeth over time. Every so often you’ll need to switch out your trays for the next set. 

What Are The Invisalign Liners Made Of?

Simple aligners are made of lightweight plastic called SmartTrack®, specifically designed for Invisalign treatments. Aligners are FDA-approved and do not contain BPA, BPS, latex or gluten.

Who’s the Invisalign for?

As mentioned before, Invisalign isn’t for everyone. The perfect candidate for Invisalign is usually adults or teenagers. Children who have lost all of their baby teeth can use Invisalign. However, our friend Dr. Hoang, a dentist in Bethlehem, GA, points out that children aren’t as responsible, so taking on Invisalign may be too big of a responsibility for them since they will need to take them out in between meals.

What Are the Advantages of Invisalign?

There are so many advantages to Invisalgin, says Dr. Dave. Not only is Invisalign transparent and discreet, but they’re also removable! It eliminates the inconvenience of brushing, flossing, and eating with traditional braces. Most patients choose Invisalign aligners because hardly anyone notices they’re going through an orthodontic treatment.

What’s the Right Way toTake Care of  My Aligners?

Many dentists in Easton, PA, will recommend using an Invisalign Cleaning Device to eliminate germs. You should also gently brush and rinse your clear aligners with toothpaste and warm water. Dr. Dave doesn’t recommend rinsing with hot water in case your custom aligners warp. 

Is Invisalign Going to Straighten My Teeth If I’ve Had Braces in The Past?

Yes! This is actually pretty common. If you don’t take good care of your teeth after braces, there’s a chance that they shift out of place. Invisalign can fix a lot of simple and complex problems. Contact College Hill Dental Group today for an Invisalign consultation!
