Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an alternative orthodontic treatment method. Instead of traditional metal braces, Invisalign uses a series of clear, BPA-free plastic trays, or aligners, to steadily push your teeth into position.

Each tray is customized to fit your mouth and teeth precisely. As your teeth move into proper alignment, the team at Battle Ground Dental replaces your trays with new ones every couple of weeks.

What are the advantages of Invisalign?

When compared to traditional metal braces, Invisalign has several significant benefits, including:

Appearance

As the name implies, Invisalign’s clear trays are nearly invisible. If you're self-conscious about wearing noticeable metal braces, the transparent aligners won’t give away the fact that you're straightening your teeth.

Removable

With traditional braces, there’s a list of foods you can’t eat. Invisalign makes eating and drinking anything you want a breeze. Simply remove the trays when you eat and put them back in when your meal is over.

Comfortable

With Invisalign, there are no metal wires or brackets to irritate your gums or cheeks. The team uses computer imaging to custom-fit your aligners snugly and comfortably on your teeth.

Duration

Invisalign works quickly. Depending on the severity of your misalignment, you can expect Invisalign to do its job in about six months to a year.

Hygiene

With conventional braces, brushing, flossing, and cleaning between the metal brackets and wires are cumbersome. When you use Invisalign to straighten your teeth, you take the aligners off when it’s time to do your daily oral hygiene routine.

What conditions does Invisalign improve?

Invisalign can treat any of the following conditions:

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


Invisalign can restore your smile discreetly, often in less time than treatment takes with conventional braces.

What happens during the Invisalign process?

The planning phase of Invisalign is entirely digital. When you visit Battle Ground Dental for your initial consultation, the team takes digital impressions of your teeth. Then they upload these impressions into Invisalign’s proprietary software to create your personalized treatment plan.

Once your plan is ready, you receive your first custom-made set of clear aligners. It’s important that you wear these aligners for at least 22 hours a day. Every two weeks, you get a new set to wear. Each set of aligners gradually shifts your teeth into the correct position. The team at Battle Ground Dental always has access to your digital treatment plan. They can make adjustments to your plan as needed through the Invisalign software, eliminating the need for unnecessary visits.
