Invisalign® Q&A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign offers an alternative to braces for correcting an irregular bite and straightening crooked teeth. They consist of sets of clear aligners that fit over your teeth. Dr. Hardy customizes the aligners to your smile goals; you change sets every week or two as your teeth gradually shift into the desired position. 

You wear the aligners 20-22 hours each day, and your treatment plan lasts anywhere from six months to a couple of years. You usually get results faster than you would with traditional braces. 

How can Invisalign improve my smile?

If you have orthodontic concerns, Invisalign is an option. The aligners can help most bite problems, including: 

  • Crossbite and open bite
  • Overbite and underbite
  • Crowded teeth
  • Large spaces between teeth

Invisalign can also correct generally crooked teeth. The aligners can work on more than one smile misalignment at once. 

What is the process of getting Invisalign?

Dr. Hardy does a thorough evaluation of your bite. She takes a 3D scan of your teeth to determine your treatment plan. She sends the scans and your treatment process to the Invisalign lab for fabrication. 

The office will receive your aligners in about six weeks. At this point, you come in for a fitting. Sometimes, Dr. Hardy attaches small tooth-colored “buttons” to your teeth to attach the aligners. Dr. Hardy removes them when your treatment is complete. 

You get all the instructions about how and when to switch aligner trays as well as information about care and use. 

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are barely noticeable; people won’t know you’re undergoing orthodontic care. 

The aligners provide other benefits as compared with other orthodontic treatments, including:

  • No dietary restrictions; you take the trays out to eat and drink
  • Easy hygiene; you remove the trays to brush and floss
  • Comfortable; no brackets or wires that rub and cause irritation  
  • Manageable schedule; you visit the office every 6-8 weeks to check progress
  • Removal for special events; take the trays out for special photos or sports events
