Orthodontics Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a teeth alignment system that uses custom crafted clear trays to achieve your best possible smile. This approach offers the same outcome as traditional metal braces, but does not use uncomfortable wires and brackets.

The plastic aligner trays are made of a proprietary material known as SmartTrack and are comfortable and easy to put in and remove. Invisalign can effectively address numerous alignment issues, including some that are particularly challenging.

At West Broadway Dental, you have access to an Invisalign Elite Provider. This designation is only given to practitioners who’ve used the system to help more than 300 people achieve their best smiles, and who work with at least 50 Invisalign patients every six months. 

How does Invisalign work?

All teeth alignment systems use targeted pressure to slowly change teeth positioning. With metal braces, that pressure is created by a system of brackets and wires, which the orthodontist adjusts every few weeks.  They are effective, but they:

  • Cause gum and soft tissue discomfort
  • Make it difficult to maintain optimal dental hygiene
  • Are highly visible

Invisalign may be the answer for you.  During an initial consultation, your dentist evaluates your current tooth alignment to determine if the Invisalign system is right for your needs.

Your dentist discusses the treatment process and timeline and takes X-rays and 3D images that guide the manufacture of your clear aligners.   You’ll wear the first set for a predetermined period of time, usually around a week or two. Then you’ll change to the next set of aligners.

During treatment, you wear the aligners around the clock, removing them only while eating or to complete your dental hygiene routine. Every 6-8 weeks you’ll return to Broadway Dental for a check-up.

Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign has helped thousands of people feel great about their smiles. In some cases, however, Invisalign is not a good fit. There are several reasons why Invisalign might not be the best treatment option:.

  • Children and very young teenagers whose teeth are still growing and shifting
  • Patients with extreme cases of overbite and crooked alignment may not be treatable
  • Patients who may lack the discipline to wear the Invisalign trays 24/7
