What is Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign treatment consists of using clear removable trays that slowly move your teeth back into their ideal placement. This is a treatment that is great for those who want to treat dental issues without the pain and appearance of traditional metal braces. This treatment typically takes about one year, depending on the severity of your starting condition. Invisalign treatment can help with most traditional misalignment issues and help to fix bite issues, like overbites, crossbites, and underbites. Since Invisalign trays are removable, cleaning and dental health is easier than ever. Dr. Frias Landa can help you get treatment today.

How does Invisalign treatment work?

The first step to getting Invisalign treatment is a consultation with Dr.Frias Landa. At this appointment, she will determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment as well as begin planning your unique treatment plan. Once this is complete, we will take images and scans of your jaw, mouth, and teeth to understand the complexity of your dental condition. Our lab will then create customized aligners for you to use. Each set of aligners will be used for about two weeks before being switched out for a new set. This keeps your treatment plan on the right track and moving as quickly as possible.

What should I know about Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign trays are removable, so you will be able to easily clean your teeth and trays. However, you have to make sure you are wearing your aligners for at least 20 hours a day every day. This helps to ensure that your treatment goes according to plan. You should only remove your aligners to clean your teeth or anytime you eat or drink anything that is not water. After you are finished eating or drinking, you should wash out your mouth before putting your aligners back in. Chewing foods with your aligners in can break them, and drinks other than water can stain the aligners, reducing their transparency. Treatment generally takes about one year, but this can vary based on the complexity and severity of your starting condition as well as how well you follow the instructions given to you by Dr. Frias Landa.
