Invisalign Q & A

What is the Invisalign system?

The Invisalign system involves using a series of computer-generated trays made of hard plastic to bring your teeth into proper alignment. The trays snap firmly onto your teeth, allowing them to be worn throughout the day and removed as needed when you’re eating or brushing your teeth.

The Invisalign trays are designed to gradually straighten your teeth over a specific period of time. In most cases, the Invisalign treatment plan lasts 12-24 months. At Dental Center of Lakewood, you can schedule an appointment, have your questions answered about the Invisalign system, and find out whether it will work for your particular needs.

What benefits does Invisalign offer?

The Invisalign system offers many benefits, including:

  • Snapping firmly in place
  • Being easy to remove and replace as needed
  • Being removable during meals and cleanings
  • Being practically invisible
  • Being easy to clean

Many patients choose the Invisalign system over conventional braces because of their overall convenience.

Because the Invisalign trays are removable, it's also better for your teeth. You can brush your teeth after each meal without worrying about food getting trapped in the hardware. If you visit the Dental Center of Lakewood, you can discuss your options with a dedicated care provider and determine whether the Invisalign system is a good fit for you.

How long does an Invisalign treatment program last?

You’ll wear each customized tray in the Invisalign system for two weeks or longer. Depending on the amount of correction needed, the treatment plan can last from one year to 24 months or longer. In some cases, the treatment plan may be extended for a specific period if more correction is needed.

At the Dental Center of Lakewood, you’ll have your teeth evaluated to determine if braces are needed. If the recommendation is yes, you have the option of choosing the Invisalign system or more conventional options. Each patient's goals are different, and the staff will discuss every option with them so they can make an informed decision.
