Invisalign Q&A

This innovative cosmetic technology uses clear aligner therapy to straighten your teeth.

Invisalign refers to the transparent, plastic material used to construct the removable aligners that straighten your teeth. Your aligners are customized to your mouth to ensure a precise fit. You wear the aligners for about 22 hours a day, removing them only to eat and drink.

Every couple of weeks, as your teeth gently shift and correct, your dentist at SPA Dental Group gives you a new set of Invisalign aligners. Once your teeth have moved into their optimal positions, they give you a retainer to maintain your new smile. 

Invisalign is a helpful, but discreet, solution for patients looking to straighten their teeth. Because the aligners are clear and unobtrusive, no one would know you’re receiving any orthodontic treatment. 

Who can benefit from Invisalign?

Children, older teens, and adults can benefit from Invisalign. To find out if you’re a candidate, reach out to the team at SPA Dental Group for an evaluation. 

Adults might consider Invisalign if they had braces as an adolescent but now require additional help with teeth alignment.

What dental issues does Invisalign correct?

Invisalign is an extremely versatile method for straightening teeth and correcting various orthodontic problems, including:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Open bite
  • Crossbite

You might not be a candidate for Invisalign if you have extremely crooked teeth or dental abnormalities. In this case, you can speak to the SPA Dental Group team to explore other orthodontic options.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign is a popular choice for many patients because the cost of this simple treatment is comparable to traditional braces. Other benefits of Invisalign include:

  • Clear, plastic, nearly invisible aligners
  • Removable aligners make eating and brushing easy
  • No wires or metal to irritate your mouth

If you’re ready to straighten your crooked teeth or correct a bite irregularity, the SPA Dental Group team provides personal consultations to help you determine if Invisalign is right for you. They can draft a treatment plan that fits your budget and takes into account your personal dental goals.
