Invisalign Treatment in Lansdale, Pennsylvania

Treatment with Invisalign

To plan for Invisalign treatment, our team will take x-rays for a detailed view of the teeth. They will then recommend appropriate orthodontic treatment depending on the severity of the malocclusion or misalignment. Teens and adults are the best candidates for treatment with Invisalign. If our dentists find that you have severe orthodontic problems, they may recommend traditional braces. In cases where there is a significant jaw structure concern, oral surgery may be the best solution.

Once our team decides that Invisalign is right for you, they will digitally scan the teeth to take impressions. These impressions are sent to a dental lab to fabricate the Invisalign aligners. When the first set of aligners is complete, our team will ensure a proper fit. Invisalign aligners are worn in pairs, and each set of Invisalign aligners is worn for several weeks. Because each set is different, they will shift the teeth into a more aligned position over time.

How do I take care of my Invisalign aligners?

When Invisalign aligners are not in use, keep them safe in their cases. Remember not to drink or eat anything other than water when wearing the aligners. Eating or drinking with the aligners on can stain or damage them. Cleaning the aligners before placing them back in your mouth removes bacteria that contribute to decay and bad breath.

What is the average treatment time for Invisalign?

Invisalign treatment typically takes a year to a year and a half. This will depend on the misalignment of the teeth as well as patient compliance. If you properly care for your aligners, you may shorten your treatment time.

Does Invisalign treatment hurt?

No, You may feel sore adjusting to each new pair of aligners, but this discomfort will quickly fade. Compared to braces, Invisalign aligners are much more comfortable. Patients who choose Invisalign do not have to worry about gum irritation from metal wires that can poke at the gums.

Does Invisalign work permanently?

Whether or not Invisalign results are permanent will depend on the patient’s post-treatment care. After the Invisalign treatment, most orthodontists recommend wearing retainers to maintain the new position of your teeth. For the best permanent results, you should commit to wearing them as your orthodontist prescribes. If you can do this, you can maintain Invisalign results permanently. However, your teeth may gradually shift back over time without retainer use.

How soon do you see Invisalign results?

Invisalign treatment plan usually takes 12 to 18 months to straighten teeth fully. However, some patients may see noticeable results within the first few weeks of treatment. Every patient’s situation is different. The timeline for Invisalign treatment can also vary depending on the patient’s age. In general, the treatment timeline for adults is similar to that of teenagers. However, adults may require longer treatment times. This is usually due to adults having more complex cases.
