Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a much-welcome alternative solution to traditional teeth-straightening treatments like metal braces. When you choose Invisalign, you wear a series of clear plastic aligners over your teeth to gently align and shift them into place over time.

Your aligners are easy to remove for eating and teeth cleaning, but you should be sure you wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours every day for optimal results. If you’re not brushing your teeth or eating, Invisalign should remain in your mouth.

What are the advantages of Invisalign over braces?

Invisalign is a popular choice for fixing misaligned and crooked teeth due to its ease of use, comfort, and discretion. Invisalign even has a blue compliance indicator to help monitor how long adolescents are wearing their aligner trays. Dr. Lopatkin provides Invisalign because of the many benefits, including:


Invisalign works up to 50% faster than many other orthodontic techniques.


Invisalign offers discretion with clear thermoplastic aligner trays. Instead of looking at traditional metal braces, people can see your natural teeth.


The soft plastic of the aligner trays doesn’t poke, irritate, or cut your mouth or gums like metal braces.


Invisalign is convenient, and you can easily remove your aligner trays quickly whenever you need to eat, brush your teeth, or floss.

Why should I choose Invisalign?

Invisalign can resolve numerous dental problems, such as:

  • Teeth misalignment
  • Rotated teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Spaces between teeth

During your personal consultation, Dr. Lopatkin can discuss the Invisalign procedure in detail to help you decide if it’s the right treatment to straighten your teeth and enhance your smile. Together, you’ll find the best and most aesthetic means of achieving your smile goal.

What is involved in Invisalign treatment?

After evaluating your teeth, Dr. Lopatkin creates a physical impression of your teeth or digitally scans your teeth into 3D images to devise your individualized treatment plan.

He fits your plastic aligners to your teeth. Every two weeks or so, you return to Advanced Digital Orthodontics for your new set of aligners to continue the straightening process until you’re happy with your new smile.

The Invisalign process can often be completed in as little as six months. You might also be given a retainer to wear post-treatment to enhance and help maintain your results.

Straighter teeth typically look healthier and more aesthetically beautiful. To find out if the revolutionary Invisalign is the right choice to straighten your teeth, call Advanced Digital Orthodontics or schedule online today.
