What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that uses clear, custom-made aligners to straighten teeth. These aligners are made of a thermoplastic material and are virtually invisible when worn, making them a discreet option for teeth straightening. Invisalign has been shown to be just as effective as traditional braces in correcting misaligned teeth, but offers added comfort and flexibility for patients.

  • Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.
  • The aligners are made through a combination of Dr. Pillai, Dr. Bakhshi, and Dr. Hanna’s expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology.
  • You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
  • As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position Drs. Pillai, Bakhshi, and Hanna has prescribed.
  • You’ll visit Drs. Pillai, Bakhshi, and Hanna about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
  • Total treatment time averages 9 – 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

Frequently Asked Questions about Invisalign Clear Braces

1. What is Invisalign and how does it work?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses custom-made, clear aligners to straighten teeth. These aligners are crafted from a nearly invisible thermoplastic material. They are designed to be worn for about 2 weeks at a time, and you’ll remove them only for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth will gradually shift into their desired position. This process typically takes between 9 to 15 months.

You’ll visit our experienced team of dentists, Drs. Pillai, Bakhshi, and Hanna, approximately once every 6 weeks. During these visits, we’ll ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.

3. How many aligners will I need, on average, for my Invisalign treatment?

The number of aligners required can vary from case to case, but on average, patients wear between 18 and 30 aligners during their treatment. This number may be adjusted based on your specific dental needs and the goals set by Drs. Pillai, Bakhshi, and Hanna.
