Invisalign Q&A

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment system that uses removable, plastic aligners to improve the position of your teeth and jaw. When your teeth and jaw are properly aligned, they’re more aesthetically pleasing and easier to care for.

Treatment with Invisalign is unique in that the aligners are nearly invisible and fit snugly over your teeth. What’s more, they’re free of metals and ingredients like gluten and latex, making treatment safe for people with allergies and pregnant women.

What types of issues can Invisalign treat?

Parkway Dental Care & Orthodontics uses Invisalign to treat moderate and mild alignment issues, including:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowding
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Spaces between teeth

You might also benefit from treatment with Invisalign if your jaw is misaligned or malpositioned.

What does treatment with Invisalign involve?

Invisalign treatment at Parkway Dental Care & Orthodontics begins with an oral exam and a discussion of your goals. Your provider also takes oral X-rays to assess the position of your teeth and jaw and to determine the best treatment.

If your provider determines you can benefit from Invisalign treatment, they digitally scan your mouth and upload the scans to a computer design program. Your provider uses the software to design an orthodontic treatment plan.

Once your provider finalizes the plan, they explain the treatment process and send your scans to an Invisalign laboratory. Technicians at the Invisalign lab use your scans to design a custom set of oral aligners. When your aligners are ready, you return to Parkway Dental Care & Orthodontics to try them on.

Throughout the treatment with Invisalign, you visit Parkway Dental Care & Orthodontics every few weeks. At each appointment, you change into a new set of aligners while your provider monitors your progress. 

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign takes anywhere between 12-18 months* and sometimes longer. To ensure the process goes smoothly, try and wear your aligners for between 20-22 hours each day, only removing them to brush and floss or eat. 

If you notice that your aligners don’t fit like they should, contact Parkway Dental Care & Orthodontics right away. Your provider can get you in for an appointment and make adjustments as necessary.

When you’re finished with Invisalign treatment, you transition to an orthodontic retainer. The retainer ensures your teeth remain in the optimal position.
