Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment option that allows doctors to straighten teeth using a series of clear, removable, nearly invisible, plastic appliances called aligners.

Q. How does Invisalign work?

We take records of the patient’s teeth, including impressions, and fills out an Invisalign treatment planning and sends all the material to Align Technology. At Align, a computer model of the patient’s teeth is created from the impressions. Align then uses its advanced, 3-D imaging software to generate a graphical representation of Vignesh Dental Hospital’ s treatment plan—almost like an animated movie of the way the patient’s teeth will move from the current position to the final desired position.

We review and approve the rendering of his treatment plan (the 3-D movie) on a secure portion of Align’s website. Align Technology produces a series of clear, plastic aligners that correspond to the stages of tooth movement in the 3-D movie. The patient wears each stage of aligners for approximately two weeks before switching to the next set in the series. Week by week, the patient’s teeth are straightened millimeter by millimeter.

Q. Is this a new way to straighten teeth?

Doctors have successfully used removable appliances for years for very limited treatment. With the application of 3-D computer technology and mass- customization, Invisalign can be used to treat almost anyone who wants straighter teeth.

Q. What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?

Q. Who can benefit from Invisalign?

Experienced doctors can use Invisalign to treat the vast majority of people who want straighter teeth. According to the Journal of the American Dental Association, two-thirds to three-fourths of American adults (between 136 and 154 million) have some sort of malocclusion (crooked teeth) and could benefit from orthodontic treatment.

Q. How long does treatment take?

Like traditional braces, the length of treatment depends on the complexity of the case. Treatment time is about the same as conventional braces—about a year.

Q. Can any doctor treat patients with Invisalign?

Doctors must complete Invisalign certification to treat patients with Invisalign.
