Invisalign Q & A

How does Invisalign planning work?

During your consultation at Mandana Mozayeni Orthodontics, the team discusses your needs and determines whether Invisalign is right for you. Invisalign treats all kinds of malocclusion, so if it’s treatable with braces, it’s generally treatable with Invisalign. Many Invisalign patients have an overbite, underbite, open bite, crowded mouth, or crossbite. 

The team at Mandana Mozayeni Orthodontics gathers images of your teeth. They then use these images with Invisalign’s high-tech software program to plan your treatment. The advanced program allows your providers to plan the movement of every individual tooth for optimal results. 

The Mandana Mozayeni Orthodontics team can predict your total Invisalign treatment time during your consultation, and you’ll even get to preview your new smile through the digital planning program. 

What can I expect during Invisalign treatment?

Throughout your Invisalign treatment, you’ll wear clear aligners 20-22 hours a day. Consistent wear is crucial for an optimal outcome. You don’t have any food restrictions with Invisalign since you remove aligners to eat. 

Invisalign patients often have better oral hygiene than braces patients simply because you remove aligners to brush and floss. It’s much easier to properly clean your teeth without brackets and wires.

Your aligners are made of SmartTrack® material, which is very thin but quite strong. Because every aligner is custom made, they’re very comfortable. Most people won’t even realize you’re wearing Invisalign.

You’ll use a new pair of aligners every week or possibly every two weeks, depending on your specific plan. During treatment, you’ll come in for checkups at Mandana Mozayeni Orthodontics around every six weeks. Usually, this means fewer checkups than you’d need with braces.

When will I see changes with Invisalign?

Just like with braces, the changes with Invisalign are gradual. But, with Invisalign, you can actually see your teeth and enjoy the changes! You could start to see improvement in only weeks, with steady straightening as you move through the aligner changes.

How long do I have to wear Invisalign?

Invisalign treatment time depends on a few different things, including the frequency of your aligner changes. The average treatment time is 12-18 months. After you complete Invisalign treatment, a clear Vivera® retainer can take care of your new smile.
