Invisalign Q & A

The ToothBooth

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an effective method of teeth straightening where your teeth are gradually shifted into alignment. With the Invisalign solution, you wear a series of thermoplastic custom-made aligner trays that you place comfortably over your teeth. You should wear your trays for at least 22 hours every day for best results and make sure you follow the instructions provided to you by your ToothBooth dentist.

Every two weeks, you return to The ToothBooth for a new custom tray. You wear the trays until you’re happy with the alignment and the look of your teeth and smile. This process usually takes between six to 18 months.

The ToothBooth dentists recommend removing your aligners and rinsing them with warm water daily. You may also want to use a soft toothbrush to gently brush your aligners.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign is a process that straightens your teeth over time. During your initial consultation, your ToothBooth dentist produces impressions of your teeth that are used to form a 3D model. The 3D model allows your ToothBooth dentist to plan out the movement of your teeth and devise an individualized treatment plan.

You can even view a 3D computer simulation to preview your results and see how your straightened teeth will look. Your ToothBooth dentist may be able to give you an estimated total treatment time.

Your aligner trays are created in a dental lab. Every two weeks, your replacement trays continue to shift your teeth into place until you’re happy with the results and the new alignment.

After your Invisalign treatment, your ToothBooth provider might suggest that you wear a retainer that’s made from the same material as your aligner trays to keep your teeth aligned and ensure they don’t drift out of place.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign is an excellent solution for crooked, overcrowded, and misaligned teeth as well as underbites, crossbites, overbites, and open bites. Invisalign offers many benefits, including:

  • A comfortable and smooth thermoplastic material that doesn’t poke or otherwise irritate your gums
  • Removable trays that enable you to eat and brush your teeth
  • Discretion with a near-invisible plastic
  • Backed by over 20 years of clinical research
  • Works effectively for all ages, including adolescents and children

Invisalign even comes equipped with a compliance indicator to monitor the duration that adolescents are wearing their aligner trays.

Invisalign is a great way to avoid the uncomfortable and unsightly brackets, tightening wires, and other common concerns associated with metal braces. Schedule online or call The ToothBooth team to learn about the groundbreaking Invisalign and improve your smile.
