Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Many people are unhappy with their smiles because of crooked teeth, gaps, or spacing issues. Orthodontics can correct these issues -- but metal braces, brackets, and wires are no longer the only solution.

Invisalign is designed to straighten your teeth using a set of clear aligners made out of SmartTrack material, a pliable plastic that applies gentle and constant force to the teeth to straighten teeth up to 50% faster than two-week align wear.

What can Invisalign help treat?

Invisalign can treat the following conditions:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Open bite

How does Invisalign work?

Treatment begins after Dr. Muzaffar performs a full consultation and assessment for candidacy. Once you are approved for Invisalign, Dr. Muzaffar takes digital impressions of your teeth and sends the results through a special software program. The program produces a 3D model of your teeth and a model of your ideal smile.

This data helps create the custom aligner trays you will wear every day. The clear Invisalign aligners will apply a constant force to certain teeth over the course of a few months. This will gently push them into a straighter alignment.

You’ll receive a new set of aligners every few weeks as your teeth start to move into place. You might feel some tightness with each set of new liners, but this lessens as the teeth adjust.

To achieve optimal results, you will wear the aligner trays for up to 22 hours a day. Once treatment is complete, Dr. Muzaffar fits you with a retainer so you can maintain your beautiful smile for life.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?
