What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is an effective solution for both teens and adults who would prefer a virtually invisible teeth straightening treatment. Invisalign’s state-of-the-art advancements allow us to treat nearly all cases—from simple to complex—with the most inconspicuous and convenient method possible.

Advantages of Invisalign®

Invisalign® is not only effective and convenient when it comes to straightening teeth, it is an excellent alternative to conventional metal braces for the following reasons:

  • Appearance—clear/no metal, virtually invisible
  • Comfort—removable when necessary
  • Safety—smooth with no wires
  • Treatment duration—as short as a year
  • Proven, predictable results—no surprises
  • Effective—treat crossbites, crowding, open bites, gapped teeth, overbites, and underbites.
  • Convenient—no dietary restrictions, fewer dentist appointments

Why would I want Invisalign®?

If you’ve decided it’s time to straighten your crooked teeth or your misaligned bite, and you’re weary of conventional braces, Invisalign®—a series of clear, removable aligners—may be the ideal treatment for you. Since they are almost invisible, most people won’t even know you’re in the middle of orthodontic treatment!

What to Expect—The Process

First Consultation: Dr. Shinde does a complete evaluation, and if you decide Invisalign is right for you, she customizes a treatment plan that aligns with your oral needs and goals.

Customized Treatment Plan: Dr. Shinde will use impressions of your teeth to form a precise plan that establishes the movements of your teeth, the length of your treatment, and even a preview shot of what your teeth will look like upon completion.

The Transformation: The process may seem slow, but in a matter of months, your smile will transform through a sequence of expertly designed shifts.

Invisalign® FAQs

How long do you wear Invisalign®?

Once your customized aligners are ready to you, you’ll need to wear them 20-22 hours a day. Then, all you’ve got to do is simply pop in a new set of aligners every two weeks. In general, treatment time is 12-18 months, but the length of the digital plan mapped out by your doctors depends on your specific goals and how much you wear your aligners. Each set of aligners will gently move your teeth into place and transform your smile.

Is Invisalign® treatment painful?

Since Invisalign® shifts your teeth, it’s quite common for patients to feel a small bit of pressure the first day or 2 of wearing a new set of aligners. Typically, the pain is minimal, and patients can adequately control the slightest discomfort with over-the-counter medications.

Can you eat with Invisalign® in?

No! You take your aligners out when you are eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing, and if necessary, for special occasions. But remember, for optimal results, you will need to wear your removable aligners 20-22 hours a day. The advantage to having to take your aligners out to eat is that it frees you up to eat whatever you want—no restrictions!

What foods can you not eat with Invisalign®?

When it comes to conventional braces, there’s a long list of food you cannot eat. But the beauty of Invisalign® is that it straightens your teeth without restricting your diet. Your invisible aligners are removable, so you are able take them out at any time and eat whatever foods you choose.

How often should you clean your Invisalign® aligners?

It is important to brush your teeth and your aligners after every meal. This will keep them from becoming stained. To brush your aligners, simply clean them with a toothbrush, toothpaste, and lukewarm water. Water that gets too hot can potentially warp the plastic.
