Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign® orthodontic treatment?

Invisalign orthodontic treatment uses removable oral appliances to improve the alignment and symmetry of your teeth or jaw. 

Invisalign aligners work similarly to metal braces. The difference is that the aligners are made from transparent thermoplastic. They fit snugly over your upper or lower teeth and apply mild pressure.

Over time, that mild pressure changes the position of your teeth and jaw, improving your smile’s appearance and oral health.

What alignment issues might benefit from Invisalign clear aligners?

Dr. Mozayeni uses Invisalign clear aligners to treat various alignment issues, including:

  • Overcrowding
  • Gaps between the teeth
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Crossbite
  • Overbite
  • Underbite

Sometimes, Dr. Mozayeni prescribes Invisalign to treat temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ). Wearing Invisalign aligners can relieve tension caused by jaw cleaning and teeth grinding, reducing pain and inflammation.

What does orthodontic treatment with Invisalign involve?

Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign begins with an in-office consultation.

Dr. Mozayeni reviews your dental records, asks about your treatment goals, and completes an oral exam. If you have cavities, gum disease, or other oral issues, Dr. Mozayeni treats those things first. When your teeth and gums are healthy, she moves forward with treatment.

Dr. Mozayeni takes digital scans of your teeth and jaw. She uses your scans to develop an orthodontic treatment plan that maps out the precise movements of your teeth and jaw.

After finalizing your treatment plan, Dr. Mozayeni sends it to an Invisalign lab. Technicians at the lab use your scans to create a series of removable plastic aligners. Once your aligners are ready, you return to Dr. Mozayeni’s practice and try them on.

Throughout treatment, you visit Dr. Mozayeni every 3-4 weeks. At each checkup, she provides you with new Invisalign aligners and monitors your progress, making adjustments when needed.

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

The time that Invisalign treatment takes depends on the alignment issues treated and their severity. Mild issues, like crooked and overlapping teeth, often improve within 12-18 months. More serious problems, like gaps between the teeth, can take up to two years.* Be patient, wear your aligners as prescribed, and follow Dr. Mozayeni’s instructions.
