Invisalign® Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the leading brand of clear aligners designed to help people get their best, most beautiful smile.

Invisalign works similarly to braces, slowly shifting your teeth into alignment, but instead of moving your teeth with brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear, virtually invisible plastic aligners.

When you choose Invisalign, you get a full set of multiple aligners that bring you closer to your perfect smile. As you change out your aligners over the prescribed time period, the aligners gently, safely, and effectively shift your teeth into their proper positions.

The result is a dazzling, straight smile without having to suffer through the physical pain of a mouth cut up by metal or the social pain of traditional braces.

How does Invisalign fit my smile?

If you’re interested in Invisalign, set up your appointment at Hyun S. Bang, DDS. There, the dedicated team creates a custom plan for you and shows you what your smile will look like post-Invisalign using a preview based on a digital 3D scan of your current smile.

Then, using that digital scan, your Invisalign aligners are 3D printed. The first set of aligners are tailored to fit your current smile and shift your teeth toward proper alignment. Each successive aligner picks up where the previous one left off until you’re left with your dream smile.

How often do I change out my Invisalign aligners?

Your Invisalign expert tells you to change your Invisalign aligners out every 1-2 weeks, depending on your program.

Wear your aligners between 20-22 hours a day for the fastest path to your ideal smile. The good news is your aligners don’t need to get in the way of your daily routine. You can enjoy all the same foods and drinks as you did before.

Just take your aligners out when you eat and pop them back in when you’re done. You also should take the aligners out to clean your teeth.
