Invisalign Q & A

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign is one of the most in-demand types of orthodontic treatments. While Invisalign works in the same manner as traditional braces by shifting your teeth into place over time, the treatment is barely noticeable.

The Invisalign platform utilizes advanced 3D imaging to create a mold of your teeth now, as well as a map of where each individual tooth should be. After creating your Invisalign plan, your dentist uses the Invisalign system to fabricate clear aligners.

Every 1-2 weeks, you start wearing the next set of aligners in your package. With each progressive set of Invisalign aligners, your teeth gently get pushed into proper alignment until, eventually, your teeth become straighter than ever before. 

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign is one of the top-requested cosmetic dentistry treatments offered at Playa District Dental. After all, not only can you straighten your teeth, but you can do so discreetly — no one has to know. 

Invisalign is also beneficial because you:

  • Won’t need as many office visits as you would for adjustments with braces
  • Won’t have to worry about sores from obtrusive brackets
  • Can remove aligners to eat, brush, and floss

Invisalign is an FDA-approved treatment, so you can feel confident that you’re going to get the results you deserve in a safe and effective manner.

When will I have results with Invisalign?

While Invisalign is certainly a highly effective alternative to traditional wire-and-bracket braces, your teeth still need time to shift. The team at Playa District Dental finds that the average Invisalign treatment plan takes about 12-18 months to complete.

But you should start noticing an improvement in your smile within the first few months. The more diligent you are about wearing your aligners — keep them in for 20-22 hours daily — the quicker your Invisalign plan is going to be.
