How Does Invisalign Work?

Dr. Yanela Gonzalez has received specialized training to treat patients with Invisalign. Once we decide you are a good candidate, she will take images and x-rays of your teeth and input the information into a proprietary software program. Using the information it produces, Dr. Gonzalez maps out a step-by-step plan that predicts the movement of your teeth.

Invisalign works by using a series of custom-made, clear plastic aligners that are worn over the teeth. Each aligner is designed to gradually move the teeth into their desired position.

The process begins with a consultation with an Invisalign-trained dentist or orthodontist, who will conduct an examination of your teeth and take impressions, X-rays, and photographs. These images will be used to create a digital 3D model of your teeth, which will be used to design a treatment plan.

Once the treatment plan is created, a series of aligners will be made specifically for your teeth. The aligners are worn for about 22 hours a day and are changed out every two weeks. Each new aligner will apply a small amount of force to the teeth, gradually moving them into the desired position.

Invisalign treatment typically lasts between 9 and 18 months, depending on the complexity of the case. Throughout the treatment, the patient will have regular check-ups with their dentist or orthodontist to monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments to the treatment plan.

Invisalign is effective for treating a wide range of orthodontic issues, including overcrowding, gaps, and bite problems. The clear aligners are virtually invisible when worn and are removable, making it easy to eat, brush, and floss your teeth.
