Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an advanced orthodontic treatment that produces the straight, even smile you want without a mouthful of metal. Using innovative, clear plastic aligner trays, Invisalign straightens teeth up to 50% faster than braces.

Dr. Abar and his team use Invisalign to treat many common orthodontic problems, such as:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Gaps in teeth
  • Crooked teeth

In addition to enhanced comfort while you wear them, Invisalign aligners are removable. That means you can eat whatever you want and clean your teeth without interference.

Can teenagers use Invisalign?

Yes, Dr. Abar and his team offer Invisalign for both adolescents and adults. Invisalign Teen is specifically tailored to meet the needs of your teenager. These aligners use the same Invisalign technology, but with added features such as:

  • Wear indicators that change from blue to clear to help your teen manage the amount of time they wear the aligners
  • Six cost-free personalized replacement aligners in case some get lost or misplaced
  • Room to compensate for new teeth and developing molars

Your teen will love watching Invisalign enhance their smile without interrupting their busy lifestyle.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

The revolutionary design of Invisalign aligners makes them superior to traditional braces in many ways. Major benefits of Invisalign include:

  • Invisibility so all you can see is your beautiful smile
  • Improved comfort with no wires or metal
  • Removable during meals and cleaning
  • Freedom to play sports and other activities
  • Increased comfort while playing musical instruments
  • Less risk of tooth damage or decay than braces

Invisalign aligners are easy to use, clean, and care for. You or your teen can enjoy the freedom of eating the foods you love and playing sports without worrying about an orthodontic device.

How does Invisalign work?

The process begins with a consultation at Abar Orthodontics. Dr. Abar or a member of his team use advanced, 3D computer technology to assess your unique orthodontic needs. During this process, they create a computer model that displays how your teeth will look after Invisalign.

Dr. Abar creates customized, clear plastic aligner trays for you or your teen to wear for at least 20-22 hours per day. Depending on your specific needs, you get a new aligner tray every week or two.

You return to Abar Orthodontics for a checkup about every six to eight weeks to monitor your progress until you achieve your ideal smile.
