Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that improves the position of your teeth and jaw with a series of removable aligners. The aligners are made of SmartTrack®, a thermoplastic that’s free of gluten, latex, and BPS, making it safe for pregnant women and those with allergies.

Invisalign aligners fit snugly over your teeth. Plus, they’re see-through, so they blend in and look more natural than traditional metal braces. 

What types of alignment issues can Invisalign correct?

At Dr. Aaronson & Associates, the team uses Invisalign to correct various alignment issues, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crowding
  • Malpositioned or misaligned jaws

You might also benefit from treatment with Invisalign if there’s an underlying issue with your bite such as a crossbite, an overbite, or an underbite.

What does treatment with Invisalign involve?

Invisalign treatment begins with a review of your dental health history, an oral exam, and a series of oral X-rays. If your provider determines you’re a candidate for orthodontics, they take digital impressions of your mouth with an intraoral scanner. 

Your provider uploads your scans to a computer-aided design program and develops a custom Invisalign treatment plan. After explaining the orthodontic treatment process and answering your questions, your provider sends your scans to an Invisalign laboratory.

A team at the Invisalign laboratory uses your scans to manufacture your first set of custom orthodontic appliances. When they’re ready, you visit Dr. Aaronson & Associates and try them on.

During orthodontic treatment, you visit Dr. Aaronson & Associates every few weeks. At each visit, you transition to a new set of Invisalign aligners that place slightly different pressure on your teeth.

How long does treatment with Invisalign take?

Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign usually takes 12-18* months, but it can take longer. To ensure a quick and hassle-free treatment process, make sure to attend each of your follow-up appointments. In addition, follow the team’s instructions carefully and wear your aligners for 20-22 hours every day.
