Invisalign® Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign uses custom-made aligners to slowly and gently move your teeth into the correct position. Nearly invisible, Invisalign shifts teeth horizontally, vertically, and even rotationally, giving you a safe and effective alternative to braces and traditional orthodontics.

Based on your specific teeth, you wear each aligner for a certain amount of time -- typically two weeks -- before changing to the next set. Monthly appointments to the orthodontist to painfully tighten braces are no longer needed.

Dr. Hu uses Invisalign to treat a wide variety of teeth alignment issues, both simple and complex, including:

  • Teeth Gaps
  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Open bite
  • Cross bite

How does Invisalign work?

Each Invisalign aligner is made especially for your mouth and teeth. During your initial consultation, Dr. Hu creates a 3D digital image of your mouth, which she uses to determine if Invisalign is right for you and if so, she determines your treatment plan.

Once your aligners are made, they put gentle pressure on your teeth, slowly shifting them into place. With each aligner change, different teeth move towards their correct positions until all your teeth align.

You wear these aligners 20-22 hours a day, taking them out to clean and floss your teeth. You can also remove them to eat and for regular dental cleanings.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign offers a wide range of benefits over traditional orthodontics and braces. With over four million improved smiles, Invisalign can make your smile straighter, too.

Here are just some of the benefits you can expect:

  • Straightening time that’s up to 50% faster when compared to metal braces
  • Innovative technologies, including SmartForceⓇ, have 75% more predictable alignment
  • SmartTrackⓇ material improves comfortability and fit
  • Compliance indicators ensure proper wear time
  • No injuries or cheek damage from metal brackets or wires
  • Easy removal for sports and special events

What’s more, straight teeth lead to improved oral hygiene. Brushing and flossing are more effective, as are professional teeth cleanings.
