Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an excellent alternative solution to traditional teeth-straightening treatments, such as metal braces. With Invisalign, you wear a series of clear plastic aligners over your teeth to gently shift and align them into place over time.

You can easily remove your aligners for teeth cleaning and eating, but you should make sure you wear your aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours every day for the best results. Invisalign should remain in your mouth if you’re not eating or brushing your teeth.

What are the benefits of Invisalign over braces?

Invisalign is a great way to fix crooked and misaligned teeth due to its ease of use, discretion, and comfort. Downtown Dental Studio provides Invisalign for an array of benefits.


The soft plastic of the aligner trays doesn’t poke, irritate, or cut your gums or mouth like metal braces.


Invisalign is convenient. You can remove your aligner trays whenever you need to floss, brush your teeth, or eat.


Invisalign works up to 50% faster than many other orthodontic techniques.


With Invisalign’s clear thermoplastic aligner trays, people can see your natural teeth instead of seeing traditional metal braces.

Why should I choose Invisalign to align my teeth?

Invisalign can resolve several dental problems, such as:

  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Teeth misalignment
  • Rotated teeth

Your dentist can discuss the Invisalign procedure in detail during your personal consultation to help you decide if it’s right for you.

What is involved in Invisalign treatment?

The first step is to evaluate your teeth. Your dentist creates a physical impression of your teeth or digitally scans your teeth into 3D images. They use these images to devise a personalized treatment plan.

Your dentist carefully fits your customized plastic aligners to your teeth. When you wear your aligner trays, they gradually shift your teeth into place. Every two weeks or so, you return to Downtown Dental Studio for a new set of aligners to continue the straightening process until you’re happy with the look and feel of your new smile.

In some cases, the Invisalign process can be completed in as little as six months.

Straighter teeth usually look healthier and more aesthetically beautiful. Invisalign can positively transform the appearance of your smile. Call Downtown Dental Studio or schedule your personal Invisalign consultation online today.
