Invisalign® Q & A

How do I know if my teeth need to be realigned?

If you have an underbite, crossbite, or overbite, or if your teeth are crowded together or spaced too widely apart, you may have an alignment problem that can impair the function of your teeth, impact your appearance, and harm your healthy gums.

Whether you aim to enhance function only or you seek an aesthetic improvement, Invisalign can help you to achieve these goals discreetly and comfortably. Invisalign can effectively address misalignment and provide confidence of a great smile and an increased likelihood of improved oral health.

Why is it important that teeth are aligned?

Well-aligned teeth give a beautiful look while maintaining the health of the surrounding soft tissues of the gum and bone. When teeth are properly aligned, teeth can fit more securely around the teeth, thus allowing the healthiest defense against potential periodontal problems. Aligned teeth are also easier to maintain clean while being able to floss in between a lot easier.

Malocclusion, or the misalignment of teeth, may also cause:

  • TMJ or other jaw pain
  • Clicking or popping jaw
  • A mouth that doesn’t close properly
  • Unevenly worn teeth
  • Speech impediments
  • Chewing problems
  • Build up of decay-causing bacteria and plaque
  • Biting the inside of your cheeks
  • Biting your tongue

How does Invisalign realign my teeth?

Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth using 3D images and impressions that your dentist takes in the office. The Invisalign factory then produces a series of aligners that you change every two weeks. Each new aligner gently nudges your teeth closer to their ideal position.

Every six weeks, your dentist checks your progress and makes adjustments, as necessary. Some aligners even have blue indicator dots that alert you to when you need to change to the next aligner in the series.

Invisalign aligners aren’t only transparent and discreet, they feel smooth in the mouth and do not cause injuries or irritation, as traditional braces may do.

If you’re ready to begin moving your teeth into perfect alignment without pain or self-consciousness, call or email Dr. Grace Lopez at Coral Bay Smiles to be fitted for Invisalign aligners or use the handy online form.
