Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment used to straighten your smile. It’s a more comfortable, convenient, and discrete alternative to traditional braces that uses clear plastic aligners to get your teeth into alignment.

Invisalign aligners are aesthetically pleasing, more so than traditional metal braces. Because your aligners are clear, they virtually disappear when you’re wearing them, so you won’t have to endure a mouthful of metal while you straighten your teeth.

How do I get Invisalign?

When you decide to get Invisalign at Encino Dental Esthetics, the team starts with a consultation. During your consultation, your provider takes a detailed scan of your mouth with the iTero Element® intraoral scanner, which is a much faster and more comfortable experience than the traditional dental molds.

The team uses your digital impression to design your treatment plan. Utilizing advanced computer software, they’ll map the steps your teeth need to take to reach proper alignment. They send that information to a lab to fabricate your series of aligners.

What does the treatment involve?

All you have to do to straighten your smile with Invisalign is wear your aligners for 22 hours every day. They exert a small amount of pressure that gradually pushes your teeth into alignment, and progress begins as soon as you snap them onto your smile.

Invisalign aligners are easily removable, which means that you can take them out whenever you need to — like if you’re going on a date, having photos taken, or need to give a presentation. 

Take out your aligners whenever you eat, so, unlike with traditional braces, you won’t have to worry about changing your diet during treatment. Invisalign also makes it easier to keep your teeth clean, since you can just take out your aligners and brush and floss. 

You check in with the team at Encino Dental Esthetics for periodic follow-ups throughout your treatment. They perform these checkups as telehealth calls, so you won’t have to worry about spending time physically scheduling visits to the office.
