Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

If you have crooked or misaligned teeth, you may feel embarrassed about your smile and hide it as much as possible. Braces do an excellent job of straightening teeth, but they can be uncomfortable. They're also semi-permanent, meaning that you can't remove your braces for special events or photos.

Invisalign is different. This treatment uses clear, removable trays to discreetly straighten your teeth. Best of all, Invisalign trays can be removed for meals, photos, and daily oral hygiene. Invisalign is FDA-approved, and over 6 million people have used Invisalign to improve their smiles.

How does Invisalign compare to traditional braces?

Invisalign trays are:

  • Clear and discreet
  • Fully removable
  • Comfortable
  • Convenient
  • Easy to clean

Unlike braces, Invisalign doesn't use any wires or complicated appliances. Invisalign can also be a convenient option for busy adults. You can receive several sets of aligners at once, so there's no need to visit your dentist each month. Instead, you can change out your aligners in the comfort of your own home. 

But Invisalign isn't right for everyone. If you have complex dental needs, other procedures may be a better option. Dr. Gambertoglio can help you weigh your options and choose the right orthodontic treatment.

How does Invisalign work?

At Peter Gambertoglio, DDS, you can receive a personal Invisalign consultation. Dr. Gambertoglio examines your teeth and takes X-rays to get a complete picture of your mouth. Next, he lets you know whether you're a good candidate for Invisalign and what kind of results you can expect.

If you opt for Invisalign, Dr. Gambertoglio begins by taking a scan of your teeth. He sends the scan to a certified Invisalign lab, where your aligners are custom-made. The lab uses high-quality materials to ensure that your aligners are comfortable and durable.

Most patients swap out their aligners every two weeks. Each set of aligners gradually moves your teeth closer to their correct position. A full Invisalign treatment usually takes about 12-14 months. 

After your treatment is complete, you may need to continue wearing your aligners at night. Keeping up with your aligners can prevent your teeth from shifting.  Dr. Gambertoglio can provide other tips on preserving your results.
