Invisalign FAQS, from Your Cupertino Dentist

pretty smiling ladyAs a dedicated dentist in Cupertino, Dr. LaFrom understands that metal braces can seem unappealing for older teens and adults; however, straightening crooked teeth is often necessary to preserve your smile and prevent subsequent oral health problems. To help you enjoy a straighter smile without the need for metal brackets and wires, Dr. LaFrom offers Invisalign clear braces—the clear alternative to traditional orthodontics. Today, we quiz your knowledge about clear braces and the many benefits they can provide your smile.

All About Invisalign Clear Braces

What are Invisalign clear braces?

Invisalign reinvents the approach to straightening teeth by utilizing a series of clear acrylic aligners to gently force your teeth into their desired positions. Each aligner is designed to force your teeth along a doctor-prescribed path of movement toward their optimal positions.

Are Invisalign’s braces really invisible?

Aside from being crafted from clear acrylic, Invisalign’s aligners are custom designed to fit snugly over your teeth to avoid slippage or movement when you speak and smile. Their clear construction and firm grip make Invisalign clear braces virtually undetectable.

How long will my treatment last?

Traditional braces can often require two years or more to complete treatment. By focusing mainly on the cosmetic aspects of your smile and simplifying the treatment process, Invisalign clear braces can often straighten your smile in as little as 12-18 months.

 Will I have to alter my hygiene routine and diet for Invisalign?

Eating and brushing around traditional brackets and wires can often be a challenge. However, Invisalign’s removable aligners allow you to continue eating what you like (within reason) and practicing daily dental hygiene without special considerations for your orthodontic appliance. With INVISALIGN, you simply remove the aligners before you eat or brush your teeth, then replace them once you’ve finished.
