Invisalign Q&A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign revolutionizes the way orthodontics realigns teeth. Invisalign is a clear aligner system that can treat crooked teeth and bite problems. 

Many patients report greater comfort when using Invisalign over traditional braces. Moreover, many adults opt for this system as it’s nearly seamless and invisible to the naked eye. This contributes to greater confidence during your teeth realignment treatment.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

In addition to shifting teeth within the mouth, Invisalign can treat many other concerns, such as:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Teeth crowding and overlapping
  • Gaps

Clear trays used in the treatment process can also be removed easily, unlike traditional braces. This makes eating your favorite foods easier without worrying about popping a bracket or wire. 

Popping a bracket or wire is a common occurrence with traditional braces. No risk of damaging traditional braces means fewer visits to the dentist’s office, which saves you time and money.

Additionally, this provides greater access to your teeth for proper hygienic practices, such as brushing and flossing. This mitigates the risk of infection by removing tartar and plaque build-up and ensures healthy gums.

How is Invisalign personalized?

Robert A. Scherrer, DMD, and the friendly staff at Advanced Dental Care of Ridgewood take impressions of your teeth to record precise mouth measurements. Advanced 3D imaging technology creates your custom-fit Invisalign treatment from this information.

Dr. Scherrer ensures a snug fit and that the newly acquired trays meet treatment standards. You may experience mild discomfort and tightness when wearing a new tray. A single tray is designed to shift the teeth over 1-2 weeks. The tightness of the Invisalign system indicates they are tailored specifically for you.

Is Invisalign effective?

Invisalign was first introduced in 2000, where it was met with initial criticism. Many were skeptical that a system of simple trays could effectively treat common teeth and jaw alignment concerns.

Over time, research and patients that opted for Invisalign noted treatment results comparable to traditional braces. Patients expressed excellent satisfaction with the more comfortable and minimally invasive orthodontic solution.
