Invisalign® FAQ

Welcome to our guide to Invisalign® treatment, the transformative orthodontic treatment that aligns your teeth with discreet, clear aligners. Whether you are considering Invisalign aligners for yourself or your teen, these frequently asked questions will address common queries, providing a thorough understanding of the treatment process.

What is Invisalign treatment?
Invisalign treatment is an advanced orthodontic solution that utilizes a series of clear, removable aligners to gently and gradually straighten teeth. Suited for both adults and teens, Invisalign treatment stands as a discreet alternative to traditional braces.

How does Invisalign treatment work?
The Invisalign aligner journey begins with a personalized consultation, during which a 3D digital scan of your teeth is taken. Based on this scan, a customized series of aligners is crafted. Wearing each set for about two weeks facilitates gradual teeth movement toward the desired positions.

Are Invisalign aligners noticeable?
A distinctive advantage of Invisalign treatment is its near-invisibility. The clear aligners make orthodontic treatment inconspicuous, allowing individuals to undergo correction without drawing attention to their smiles.

Can I remove the aligners?
Yes, Invisalign aligners are removable, offering flexibility during meals and simplifying oral hygiene maintenance. However, for optimal results, adherence to the recommended wear time of 20-22 hours per day is crucial.

Are Invisalign clear aligners suitable for teens?
Absolutely. Invisalign treatment provides a specialized treatment plan designed for teens, addressing their unique orthodontic needs. Dr. Peter Yi, our experienced orthodontist at Gainesville Orthodontics, can guide teens through the process for a confident and healthy smile.

How often do I need to see the orthodontist during Invisalign treatment?
Regular check-ups with Dr. Yi are essential for monitoring progress and adjusting the treatment plan as needed. These visits typically occur every 6-8 weeks.
