Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisilign?

Invisalign® is a revolutionary, comfortable alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments like braces to straighten your teeth. During the treatment, you wear clear, plastic Invisalign aligners, which fit snugly over your teeth. 

Over time, the aligners gradually correct misalignment, overcrowding, and other common dental issues – giving you a new, natural smile.

Unlike traditional braces, aligners come off easily, allowing you to eat comfortably and brush your teeth. However, when you’re not eating or brushing your teeth, you’ll want to wear your Invisalign aligners for at least 22 hours per day to achieve the best results.

What happens during the Invisalign fitting process?

The Invisalign fitting process is easy and entirely painless. Dr. Chakka uses advanced computer technology to take a digital scan of your mouth. The scan allows him to create treatment instructions that gradually move your teeth from their current misalignment to a beautifully straight, fully aligned smile.

Invisalign lab techs turn these instructions into a series of clear aligner trays, each one moving your teeth fractionally more than the last. You wear each aligner for 7-10 days, for at least 22 hours a day, removing them only when you eat, brush, and floss.

During your fitting, Dr. Chakka shows you what your teeth will look like once you’ve completed the treatment, giving you total confidence in the process.

Is Invisalign right for me?

Many people benefit from Invisalign, and you may be one of them. Invisalign corrects mild-to-moderate dental misalignments, such as:

  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Teeth misalignment after braces
  • Overbite
  • Underbite

Before starting treatment, Dr. Chakka examines your mouth to see if Invisalign is the right treatment for you.

What are the advantages of Invisalign?

Invisalign offers several benefits when it comes to correcting your smile. A few of these benefits include:

  • You can remove the aligners to eat and drink, so there’s no need to avoid certain foods
  • You can remove the aligners to brush and floss, potentially reducing bacterial growth
  • Aligners often work more quickly than regular braces
  • Aligners don’t have irritating wires or brackets 

People of all ages who want straighter teeth can take advantage of Invisalign treatment. Teens are especially good candidates because they can remove the aligners while eating or playing sports. In addition, since aligners are clear, your friends and family hardly notice you’re wearing them.
