If you are looking for more information about Invisalign, keep reading this short Q&A from our dental team.

Q: How does Invisalign move teeth?

A: During the Invisalign treatment process you will wear clear plastic aligners that cover your top and bottom teeth. These aligners apply consistent pressure to your teeth, incrementally moving them into different positions. You’ll receive a new aligner every two or three weeks, and each aligner is designed to get you closer to your dream smile.

Q: What can Invisalign do?

A: Invisalign is designed to achieve the same results as metal braces. You can straighten misaligned teeth, correct bite problems, close gaps in your smile, and widen your smile profile. If you aren’t sure whether Invisalign can help you, talk to your dentist!

Q: How long does Invisalign treatment take?
A: This will depend on the current state of your smile as well as the specific results you want to achieve. The average time for Invisalign treatment is between 12 and 18 months. The good news is that whether you require a shorter or longer treatment time, your smile will be able to shine through during the entire treatment process.
