Invisalign Q & A

What does Invisalign involve?

You have an innovative new alternative to braces: Invisalign. This treatment uses clear, plastic aligners that fit over your teeth to gradually align them over time.

It’s best to wear the aligners for at least 20 hours per day, but they can be removed for easy eating and teeth cleaning. If you’re not eating or brushing your teeth, Invisalign aligners should stay in your mouth.

Why might Invisalign be a better option for you?

Invisalign is an increasingly popular means to fix poorly aligned teeth, especially among young adults, due to its ease of use and comfort. Invisalign offers many benefits over traditional orthodontic approaches, like braces. These benefits include:

  • Invisibility, so people never see a mouthful of metal, they see your real teeth
  • Comfort, because the smooth plastic reduces the risk of mouth irritation caused by sharp metal braces
  • Convenience, thanks to your ability to easily remove them whenever you need to eat, brush, or floss
  • Timing, because with Invisalign, you can expect to see results up to 50% faster than with other orthodontic techniques

Are you a good candidate for Invisalign?

Mild to moderate dental misalignments are no match for Invisalign. Invisalign can help correct issues, such as:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Teeth misalignment after braces


Invisalign might not be the right treatment for you if you have major alignment and orthodontic issues. Dr. Azar might recommend an alternative treatment if this is the case. Schedule an appointment to find out if Invisalign is right for you.

What is involved in Invisalign treatment?

First, your teeth need to be examined by Dr. Azar to see if Invisalign is the ideal choice for you. She may take a physical impression of your teeth or use a digital scanning device to create 3D images. With these, Dr. Azar will be able to form an individualized treatment plan that suits your specific needs.

Next, Dr. Azar fits your teeth with customized clear, plastic aligners. While you wear them, the aligners gradually push your teeth where they are supposed to go. To keep your teeth moving in the right direction, Dr. Azar will occasionally make your new aligners. Until your smile is perfect, this process will keep going.
