Your Invisalign Dentistry Questions Answered By Our Glendale Cosmetic Dentists

Written by Dr. McKay on Jul 7, 2020

Invisalign is truly a state-of-the-art treatment protocol, that perfects a patient’s dental alignment without using any metal or abrasive brackets. This has become a go-to treatment for patients of many ages. So, today our Glendale Invisalign dentists are answering a few commonly asked questions about this orthodontic option.

Q: What are Invisalign aligners made of?

A: These aligners are crafted from smooth, clear plastic resin. Because they are clear, your teeth are not obscured by metal brackets or wires. By using this innovative material, our team can help you achieve your dream smile in the most discrete way possible.

Q: How do I care for my smile during treatment?

A: Another advantage of using Invisalign is that it is easy and straightforward to maintain your oral health throughout the treatment process. Invisalign aligners are completely removable; you’ll actually take them out when you eat, drink anything other than water, and clean your smile.

While your aligners are out of your mouth you can floss, brush, and rinse your smile as you normally do. You’ll also take a moment to clean the aligners itself. When you choose Invisalign you don’t have to worry about plaque and tartar building up around metal brackets or wires.

Q: How long does it take to see results?

A: Invisalign treatment generally takes between 12 to 18 months to complete. However, you will notice a change in your dental alignment after just a few months. Thanks to Invisalign’s clear aligners, you will be able to see how much straighter your smile is becoming, month by month.
