Invisalign® Q&A

Capitol Square Dental

What is Invisalign?

While there are other options for straightening your teeth, there is nothing with the same level of confidence and comfort that this alternative to traditional braces offers. Invisalign aligners do the same work of braces but they allow you to remove them whenever you want to eat the foods you enjoy and brush and floss your teeth for better overall dental health. With Invisalign, there is no sharp metal, as with other types of braces, which can irritate your cheeks and gums. Invisalign uses a series of aligners changed roughly every two weeks. For teens, the system will include replacement aligners (up to six) should they be lost or broken. An added benefit is that you will only have to visit the office every four to six weeks as opposed to the sometimes weekly visits which accompany traditional braces.

What is the treatment process like?

  • Consultation with Dr. Safa - It is important to have a dentist who has proper Invisalign training, can evaluate your needs, and determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign.
  • Customized Treatment Plan - this includes X-rays, impressions, and the creation of a digital 3-D image of your teeth from pictures sent to Invisalign. The 3-D images allow us to show you how your teeth will adjust during each stage of your treatment. The length of this treatment takes about the same time as with traditional braces for adolescents and teens. With adults, the course of treatment generally takes about a year.
  • Receive Invisalign Aligners - a series of custom-made, virtually invisible aligners are made by Invisalign for you. The aligners are made of BPA-free plastic which ensures comfort and will not irritate your cheeks or gums. Your aligners are worn throughout the day and removed when you eat or brush your teeth. With each set of Invisalign aligners, your teeth gradually shift into place.

How much do they cost?

Invisalign treatment is comparable to the typical cost of metal braces. For more information, contact the office to learn about your Invisalign options. Why hide your smile because you feel like you have a mouth of metal? Enjoy the confidence of showing your brilliant smile anytime, anywhere.
