Invisalign® Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Many people with crooked teeth rely on traditional braces. But braces are no longer your only option. Today, thousands of adults and teenagers prefer Invisalign.

Invisalign's clear aligners gently adjust the position of your teeth. These discreet, fully-removable aligners are a perfect choice for teens and adults who want to avoid braces. Invisalign can straighten your teeth without any sharp wires or unsightly appliances.

How can Invisalign improve my smile?

At Seguritan Dental Arts, Dr. Seguritan uses Invisalign to resolve many cosmetic concerns. Invisalign can help:

  • Straighten crooked teeth
  • Close up gaps between teeth
  • Resolve crowding
  • Fix jaw and bite problems

Invisalign may not be right for everyone. Traditional braces are often better for patients with severe orthodontic problems. But Invisalign is an excellent option for patients with mild-to-moderate orthodontic concerns.

What happens during an Invisalign consultation?

During your consultation, Dr. Seguritan examines your teeth. He may take X-rays, 3D images, or other measurements. These tests help him determine whether Invisalign can resolve your concerns.

Dr. Seguritan shows you computer-generated pictures of what your smile will look like after treatment. He also explains what you can expect from the treatment process.

If you decide to try Invisalign, Dr. Seguritan orders your customized aligners. Each set of aligners is created in a dental laboratory. Once your aligners arrive at the practice, Dr. Seguritan makes sure they fit comfortably. He makes any necessary adjustments to adjust the fit. Finally, you take your aligners home. 

What results can I expect from Invisalign?

Invisalign can deliver exceptional results, but only if patients cooperate with treatment. You can expect to wear your aligners for at least 20 hours per day. During the day, you can remove your aligners to eat, drink, and brush your teeth. But for the best results, you should wear your aligners as often as possible.

You will need to change your aligners each week. Each new set of aligners helps shift your teeth into the correct position. Dr. Seguritan can explain what to expect from each new set of aligners.

Most patients achieve their desired results within 12 months, but some treatment plans may take a little longer. Dr. Seguritan lets you know how long your treatment will take.

After you achieve your desired results, you will continue to wear your aligners at night. You may also receive a retainer to help with this process. Wearing your appliance at night preserves your Invisalign results.
