Invisalign® Q & A

360 Dental

How does Invisalign work?

You have an innovative new alternative to braces: Invisalign. This treatment uses clear, plastic aligners that fit over your teeth to gradually align them over time.

You can easily remove the aligners for teeth cleaning and eating, but you want to wear them for at least 20 hours per day for optimal results. In general, Invisalign aligners should stay in your mouth if you’re not eating or brushing your teeth.

The practitioners at 360 Dental design your Invisalign aligners right in the office using all digital scanning and impressions, so you can expect a perfectly customized fit.


Why is Invisalign a better option for teeth straightening?

Due to its comfort and ease of use, Invisalign is an increasingly popular treatment for misaligned teeth, especially among young adults. Curious about why Invisalign might be better than braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches? Check out these benefits:

  • Invisibility, so people never see a mouthful of metal, they see your real teeth
  • Comfort, because the soft plastic won’t cut your mouth like sharp metal braces
  • Convenience, thanks to your ability to easily remove them whenever you need to eat, brush, or floss
  • Timing, since Invisalign has been shown to work up to 50% faster than other orthodontic treatments


Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign can solve mild to moderate dental misalignments, like:

  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Relapse after braces


For major alignment and orthodontic issues, a different treatment may be recommended by your dedicated dentist at 360 Dental. Schedule an appointment to find out if Invisalign is right for you.


What should I expect from an Invisalign treatment?

Your dentist first examines your teeth to determine whether Invisalign is the best treatment method for you. To fully examine your teeth, your dentist needs to create a digital impression by scanning your teeth to gather 3D images. With these, your dentist forms an individualized treatment plan that suits your specific needs.

After that, your dentist fits customized plastic aligners to your teeth. When you wear them, the aligners smoothly shift your teeth into perfect alignment. As your teeth begin to shift, new aligners are made. At the end of this process, your smile will have its new, perfectly aligned shape!
