Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic system that straightens your teeth with a series of clear plastic aligners. Straightening your smile with Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional metal braces, with many patients raving about how comfortable and convenient the system is. 

Flanders Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics is a certified Invisalign provider whose team of orthodontic professionals has helped a great many of their teen and adult patients achieve a straighter and healthier smile with Invisalign’s state-of-the-art technology. 

What conditions can Invisalign treat?

Invisalign is an effective orthodontic treatment for many of the same conditions that braces typically treat, like:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Malocclusions, like overbite, underbite, crossbite, and open bite

Many patients also use Invisalign to generally straighten their teeth or simply cosmetically enhance their smiles.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

As a newer orthodontic system, Invisalign has a number of technological innovations that can make your smile-straightening journey that much easier. Invisalign is:

Comfortable

Invisalign’s aligners are made from smooth, flexible, BPA-free plastic, so they’re much more comfortable in your mouth than the metal and wires of traditional braces. 

Convenient

Invisalign’s aligners are removable, which means you don’t have to change your diet during treatment, and you don’t have to learn special techniques to keep your teeth clean while you’re straightening. And unlike braces, your aligners don’t require adjustments, so you spend much less time going back and forth to your orthodontist’s office.

Invisible

Your clear aligners are virtually unnoticeable when you’re wearing them, so you can avoid that mouthful-of-metal look.

Advanced treatment planning

The Invisalign system works with a virtual treatment plan that shows you what you’re smile will look like at the end of your journey before you even start wearing your aligners.

How do I get started with Invisalign?

If you and the team at Flanders Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics decide that Invisalign is right for you or your child, the first step in your journey is to make a virtual model of your smile with 3D computer imaging technology. 

Your orthodontist then manipulates your virtual smile to map out all of the necessary steps your teeth need to take in their journey towards perfect alignment. 

A lab fabricates your aligners to represent each one of those steps, and you wear those aligners all day, every day, taking them out only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.

You move on to the next aligner in your series every two weeks as your teeth gradually move towards their target alignment, and you visit Flanders Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics about every six weeks to check in on your progress. 

Most patients finish their treatment after 18-30 aligners, which takes about 9-15 months on average.
