Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an innovative dental treatment designed to straighten your teeth. It involves a series of clear custom aligners that you wear over your teeth. Over time, the aligners gently shift your teeth into place.

You can easily take your aligner trays out for teeth cleaning and eating, but you should wear your aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours daily for optimal results.

What can I expect with my Invisalign treatment?

First, Dr. DerMinassian evaluates your teeth and digitally scans your teeth into 3-D images to create your personalized treatment plan. Fallsgrove Park Dental provides impressionless teeth straightening using advanced intraoral scanning technology using the iTero scanners, so goopy impressions aren’t necessary. The iTero scanner is more accurate and comfortable, and it’s the only company licensed with Invisalign.

Dr. DerMinassian fits your customized plastic aligners to your teeth. For about two weeks, you wear your aligner trays before you move on to your next set of custom aligners and continue the process. Dr. DerMinassian monitors your progress and makes any needed adjustments.

What are the benefits of Invisalign treatment? 

When you wear your Invisalign aligners, people can barely notice anything is out of the ordinary in your mouth. For both adults and teens, this often makes wearing Invisalign aligners much more appealing than traditional metal braces.

Also, you can take out your Invisalign aligners when you eat so food won’t get stuck in them. This helps with keeping them clean. You can also remove them when you brush and floss so you don’t slack on your oral hygiene.

With Invisalign, another key benefit is you spend less time at the office for adjustments. There are no complicated metal or wire adjustments to perform at each visit. Check-ins during Invisalign treatment are simple, short, and routine.

Is Invisalign a good choice for me?

Invisalign is a great choice to address several dental health problems, including:

  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Teeth misalignment
  • Rotated teeth

During your personal consultation, Dr. DerMinassian can help you determine if it’s the right treatment for you.
