Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary teeth straightening system that uses clear, nearly invisible aligners to gently and effectively move your teeth into their proper position. The Invisalign aligners are made of a special thermoplastic called SmartTrack®, which uses your body heat to assist in the movement of your teeth.

The clear aligners sit perfectly on your teeth right below your gum line for both comfort and discretion.

Dr. Atli provides affordable dental care for his patients, including fair pricing for Invisalign treatment.

Can Invisalign fix my misalignment?

Invisalign aligners can fix almost any type of misalignment, including:

  • Gapped or crowded teeth
  • Overbite or underbite
  • Crossbite or open bite
  • General misalignment

However, while the Invisalign system can straighten almost any smile, Dr. Atli and his team of specialists must first examine your mouth to determine if Invisalign is the best solution for you.

How does Invisalign work?

The Invisalign teeth straightening system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to shift your teeth into a straighter position.

During your Invisalign evaluation, Dr. Atli takes a digital image of your mouth, which he uses to create your custom-made set of aligners and overall treatment plan. The computer program also allows Dr. Atli to show you the exact movement of your teeth as you go through treatment, demonstrating your new smile.

You wear one set of aligners for about four weeks, then change to the next set, gradually moving your teeth into a straighter position. Dr. Atli recommends you wear your aligners for 20-22 hours a day to reap the most benefits. You should also take them out to eat, brush, and floss your teeth.

Unlike braces, there’s no need to avoid any type of food during Invisalign treatment. However, Dr. Atli recommends brushing your teeth after you eat to remove any food particles before you put your aligners back in.

How long does Invisalign take?

Everyone’s treatment plan is individualized, but most patients can get the smile they want in 12-18 months.
