What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign is a system of clear plastic aligners, similar in shape to a dental retainer, that is custom made for your smile to gradually move crooked or misaligned teeth into their desired position. During your initial Invisalign appointment at our Bridgewater dental office, Dr. Chan (our in-house Orthodontist) will take an impression of your teeth send them to a lab that will construct your complete treatment plan. Each custom aligner is worn for roughly two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series,. This is done until you have achieved your new smile.

The Advantages of Invisalign® Clear Aligners

  • Invisalign is one of the most advanced clear dental aligner systems in the world.
  • Problems such as crossbite, overbite, underbite, crowding, or spacing can be corrected.
  • It is possible to remove the device, brush normally, and eat what you want while undergoing treatment.
  • This is also a more comfortable and less painful alternative to unsightly conventional metal braces, or even ceramic braces.

How Invisalign® Compares to Traditional Braces

  • Removable: Both Invisalign and traditional metal braces work to correct misaligned bites and straighten teeth for a more beautiful smile, but only Invisalign offers the convenience and comfort of removable plastic aligners.
  • Comfort: Traditional braces can be damaged by eating certain foods, complicate oral care, and cause a variety of discomfort. With Invisalign, you can remove your aligners to eat your favorite foods and care for your smile.
  • Invisible: Visible braces can make one self-conscious or embarrassed, and statistics show that as many as 92 percent teens feel that visible braces would be problematic for them.

Invisalign® Frequently Asked Questions

  • How old do you have to be to get Invisalign?

    Patients qualify for Invisalign based more on the condition of their teeth than their age. If all your permanent teeth have come in and there is no significant tooth decay or damage, you are probably a good candidate for Invisalign. Some children as young as 11 or 12 could complete Invisalign treatment, but it will ultimately be up to our orthodontist, Dr. Chan, to decide if Invisalign is a viable option for you.

  • How much does Invisalign® cost?

    We understand that cost is often a concern when it comes to orthodontic work. Invisalign costs are typically comparable to those of traditional braces. Your insurance plan may also cover Invisalign, so we encourage you to reach out to your provider to determine the extent of your coverage.

  • How long does Invisalign® take to straighten teeth?

    The length of time it takes for Invisalign to straighten teeth varies based on the extent of treatment and the age of the patient. While each case is different, on average, Invisalign can straighten teeth in about 12 months.

  • Can Invisalign® straighten teeth that are very crooked?

    Nearly every smile can be straightened with Invisalign, even patients with severely crooked teeth or those who’ve been discouraged from Invisalign in the past. Improvements in technology and updated techniques have greatly expanded the pool of potential candidates for Invisalign.

  • What are the alternatives to Invisalign®?

    If you’re not sure Invisalign is right for you, we offer several alternatives to straighten your teeth. Some cases of severely misaligned bites are still best treated with metal braces. Modern braces are smaller, less noticeable, and more comfortable than their past incarnations.

Why Visit an Orthodontist for Invisalign?®

A range of dental implements made from metal, ceramic, and clear plastic trays can now be used to redirect jaw growth and re-position teeth in a way that is both aesthetic and medically beneficial. Only an Orthodontist like Dr. Chan, who has spent the extra time studying in this specialty, will have the expertise and understanding to treat your orthodontic issues.

What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontia is a specialty field in dentistry that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and correction of protruding, misaligned, or crooked teeth and jaws. Orthodontics goes beyond merely improving the aesthetics of your smile and an individual’s self image. Orthodontic treatment can also correct problems that could contribute to sleep disturbances, improve dental hygiene, help in correcting speech impairments, and contribute to proper digestion by creating effective chewing surfaces.

Why See an Orthodontist?

Problems such as visibly protruding teeth, underbite or overbite, crowding, spacing, misaligned or crooked teeth, and malocclusion (the imperfect positioning of the teeth when the jaws are closed) can all be corrected with the help of appropriate dental treatments.

With the right treatment, patients have very positive outcomes:

  • Straight and even teeth resulting in greater confidence and a positive self-image
  • Easing of some types of speech impediments
  • The maintenance of better dental hygiene
  • The improved ability to chew food
