Invisalign Q & A

by Tereza Hambarchian, DDS

What is Invisalign?

The Invisalign system is a state-of-the-art orthodontic treatment that straightens your teeth gradually, using a series of custom-made aligning trays. Invisalign clear aligners are very different and much more convenient than traditional, metal braces for several reasons, including:

  • No metal or wire brackets
  • Clear SmartTrack® aligners are strong, yet almost invisible on your teeth
  • Removable for eating, brushing your teeth, and special occasions
  • Correct teeth up to two times faster than traditional braces
  • Correct simple and complex dental problems
  • No need to visit an orthodontist

Your aligners make it easy to care for your teeth and still enjoy the foods you love without worry of trying to brush and floss around metal brackets and wires. And because Invisalign is practically invisible, nobody will even notice when you’re wearing them.

Since Dr. Hambarchian is an extensively trained Invisalign provider, she takes all the measurements, X-rays, and impressions of your teeth and mouth, so your custom aligners fit perfectly. There’s no need to make separate orthodontist appointments for a straighter, more beautiful smile.

What can I expect with the Invisalign system?

Dr. Hambarchian creates a customized treatment program to fit your unique needs, based on the dental problems you want to correct. She orders sets of custom-made Invisalign trays to fit your teeth, which guide them into place until they are straight. You wear each set of aligners for a couple of weeks, or as Dr. Hambarchian indicates, and as your teeth gently shift into position, you wear a new set of aligners.

On average, you wear the BPA-free plastic aligners up to 22 hours a day for 12-18 months, removing them to eat and brush and floss your teeth. The SmartTrack material is comfortable to wear, and there’s no risk of metal wires breaking and irritating your gums since there’s no metal involved. Keeping your aligners clean is as easy as rinsing them in warm water and gently brushing them with a soft bristle toothbrush.

What dental problems can Invisalign correct?

Invisalign offers the same outcome as traditional braces without the hassle of having a mouth full of metal. For a variety of dental issues, both simple and complex, Invisalign can help you get straighter, more perfectly aligned teeth that you’re happy to show off each time you smile. If you have any of the following dental problems, Invisalign may be an ideal solution:

  • Crossbite
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Open bite
  • Crooked teeth
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Gapped teeth

Dr. Hambarchian is a skilled Invisalign provider. She continually takes courses on the latest dental treatments and products, including Invisalign, so she can offer families in the Los Angeles area the highest standards of patient-centered dental care.
