Invisalign Q&A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an effective treatment option for straighter teeth. Dentistry on Park offers customized Invisalign plans for teens and adults.

The system uses a series of clear aligners that fit snugly over your teeth. Each new aligner gradually shifts your teeth into place to enhance your smile and improve your overall oral health.

You wear the aligners as often as possible throughout the day and while you sleep. The aligners are removable, so you can take them out when eating or brushing your teeth.

Because they’re clear, the aligners are much less noticeable and more comfortable than traditional metal braces.

When should I consider Invisalign?

As an alternative to traditional braces, you can use the Invisalign system to achieve a healthier-looking smile in just a few months and with fewer office visits.

Dr. Payziyev may consider you a candidate for Invisalign if you want to address dental flaws like:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Open bits
  • Crossbites
  • Crooked teeth

Candidates for Invisalign should have good oral health overall. The team also discusses your smile goals to ensure the aligner system can deliver the expected results.

To customize your aligners, the team uses iTero® digital scanner technology to create images of your teeth. The software also helps the team predict how your teeth will shift with each new aligner to maximize your treatment outcome.

How long does it take to see the results of Invisalign?

While everyone has different dental needs and cosmetic goals, you can start seeing results of your Invisalign treatment within six months. The Dentistry on Park team can discuss what to expect from your treatment during your initial Invisalign consultation.

Even if your treatment takes longer than six months, you can still achieve a straighter smile in much less time than it takes with traditional braces.

The team continues to monitor the shifts in your teeth throughout your treatment process. Because the team plans out your aligners ahead of time, you won’t need to come to the office for follow-up care very often.

To maintain your Invisalign results, Dr. Payziyev may recommend that you continue to wear a retainer during the day or at night.
