Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

You have an innovative new alternative to braces: Invisalign. With Invisalign, clear plastic aligners fitted over your teeth will align your teeth little by little over time.

You can easily remove the aligners for teeth cleaning and eating, but you want to wear them for at least 20 hours per day for optimal results. Invisalign should stay in your mouth if you’re not eating or brushing your teeth.

Why choose Invisalign over braces?

More and more young adults are choosing Invisalign thanks to its ease of use and comfortability.

Curious about why Invisalign might be better than braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches? Check out these benefits:

  • Invisibility, because people want to see your real teeth, not a mouthful of metal
  • Comfort, so you don’t have to worry about your mouth getting cut up by pointy mental braces
  • Convenience, because when you need to floss, brush your teeth, or eat, you can just take out the aligners
  • Timing, because consistent Invisalign treatments work up to 50% quicker than other orthodontic techniques

Is Invisalign right for me?

Invisalign can solve mild to moderate dental misalignments, like:

  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Teeth misalignment after braces

For major alignment and orthodontic issues, a different treatment may be recommended by Dr. Hahn. The best way to find out if Invisalign is right for you is by scheduling an appointment at Family Dental Choice.

What should I expect from an Invisalign treatment?

First, Dr. Hahn examines your teeth to determine whether Invisalign is right for you. He may use a digital scanner to create 3D images of your teeth or make physical impressions. Using these, Dr. Hahn will develop a precise treatment plan.

Next, Dr. Hahn fits your teeth with customized clear, plastic aligners. The aligners will gradually move your teeth into their proper positions as you wear them. New aligners may be made as your teeth begin to shift. This process repeats until your smile has its new shape.
