Invisalign® Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign treatment is a modern approach to straightening teeth. Invisalign trays are removable, which allows you to eat, brush your teeth, and floss. You should wear them between 20-22 hours daily for your teeth to achieve movement.

Dr. Gainor gives you custom-made, plastic, clear aligner trays that fit on your teeth. The aligners don’t have metal brackets, and there are no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every one to two weeks until you complete your treatment and reach your desired outcome.

Invisalign offers a great way to achieve a beautiful smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about wearing Invisalign is that most people won’t see that you’re straightening your teeth.

The number of trays you receive depends on the condition of your teeth and the final look you want. Your treatment is individualized, and Dr. Gainor closely monitors your progress to ensure your results are timely and productive.

Am I a candidate for Invisalign?

If you’re a teen or adult and your jaw has stopped growing, you’re most likely a candidate for Invisalign. The treatment helps fix the same problems braces can fix, except Invisalign’s convenience makes it a preferred option.

Invisalign offers solutions for several issues that include:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite

When your teeth are straight, bacteria have less chance to settle in your gums. That’s why Invisalign can help prevent decay and gum disease. It can also stop excessive wear on your teeth caused by misalignment.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Many people are turning to Invisalign as a solution to straightening teeth because it fits almost anyone’s lifestyle. Both teens and adults enjoy the benefits.

Advantages of choosing Invisalign include:

  • Almost invisible 
  • Comfortable to wear
  • Removable
  • Quicker results than traditional braces
  • Convenience
  • Able to brush and floss

Dr. Gainor checks on your progress throughout your entire treatment. The practice also offers a teeth whitening kit at the end of your treatment, which is another great benefit.
