Invisalign Q & A

Dental Studio At Rosslyn

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary treatment for misaligned and crooked teeth. By using removable clear, plastic aligner trays, this treatment straightens your teeth without the unpleasant effects of metal braces.

Not all dentists offer Invisalign, but the talented team at Dental Studio at Rosslyn are all specially trained in this innovative technique. As certified Invisalign providers, the team can design a customized set of aligner trays that fit over your teeth.

Although you can remove these trays to eat and brush your teeth, you must wear them for at least 20 hours a day for optimal results.

Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign treats a variety of mild to moderate misalignments, such as:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Rotated or twisted teeth
  • Gaps between your teeth
  • Teeth that relapsed or shifted after braces were removed

If your misalignment is severe, the team at Dental Studio at Rosslyn may recommend a different treatment. The best way to find out if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign is to schedule an appointment to speak with one of the dentists.

What are the advantages of Invisalign over traditional braces?

Since Invisalign trays are virtually invisible, this treatment is especially popular with adults who don’t want the distracting appearance of metal braces. Invisalign also offers the following benefits:

  • Reduced risk of mouth irritation due to smooth plastic trays
  • Convenient removal for cleaning and eating
  • Works up to 50% faster than other orthodontic methods

How does the Invisalign system work?

First, one of the dentists at Dental Studio at Rosslyn examines your teeth and evaluates your bite to determine whether Invisalign is the right treatment for you. They may take digital intraoral images or impressions of your teeth.

Next, they develop a personalized treatment plan using custom-made aligner trays that gradually shift your teeth into the correct positions. As your teeth begin to move, they make new trays. They repeat this process until you achieve your desired results.
