Invisalign Q&A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a personalized orthodontic treatment system that can reposition your teeth with discretion, precision, and convenience. During Invisalign treatment, you’ll wear clear plastic aligners over your teeth at most times of the day and evening except for when you eat, drink anything but water, or brush your teeth. 

Thanks to state-of-the-art technology like iTero® digital scanning, Dr. Pendleton can design your aligners with no messy impression materials and no imprecise measurements. These aligners are designed to fit over your teeth seamlessly while placing modest pressure at certain points, straightening the teeth gently and slowly over time.

You’ll get several sets of aligners that you will need to wear in their exact order so they can shift your teeth gradually without causing any pain when you put them in. You might feel the pressure on your teeth for the first day or so after changing aligners, but you’ll adjust to wearing them quickly. 

You need to wear each aligner for between one and two weeks, depending on Dr. Pendleton’s explicit instructions, to stay on track with your treatment. When you finish your treatment, Dr. Pendleton gives you retainers so you can enjoy the results for a lifetime.

What does Invisalign treat?

Dr. Pendleton’s background working with Invisalign has refined his skills in treatment planning and producing satisfying results. His detail-oriented techniques allow him to treat mild to severe forms of malocclusion, including:

  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • Crowding
  • Wide gaps

These alignment issues can cause self-consciousness about your smile, and braces may have an effect on your confidence level. Since Invisalign aligners are nearly indistinguishable to the naked eye, you’ll only see improvements along the way. 

What are the advantages of Invisalign treatment?

Pendleton Orthodontics offers personalized treatment plans that look a little different for each patient according to their needs. During your initial visit, Dr. Pendleton helps you compare the pros and cons of different orthodontic treatments available in his office. 

While weighing your options, consider these Invisalign advantages:

  • Less visible appliances
  • Little to no dietary restrictions during treatment
  • No mouth irritation or blisters
  • Easier brushing and hygiene
  • Distinguishable results within months
  • Minimal office visits

Dr. Pendleton and his team at Pendleton Orthodontics coach you about the cleaning and care that your aligners will need. You can clean your aligners with a specialized Invisalign cleaning kit or an old-fashioned toothbrush and hand soap. 

Straightening your teeth no longer has to involve significant oral discomfort or tricky dietary restrictions. To find out if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, call Pendleton Orthodontics or book a consultation online today.
