Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign clear aligners are an orthodontic treatment alternative to the metal brackets and wires of traditional braces.

After your teeth are scanned at Dr. Lin’s office in Livermore, a number of aligner sets are made. As you progress through the treatment you’ll periodically switch out your aligners for a new, slightly adjusted set. Each new set helps moves your teeth towards their optimal position.

What are the benefits of using Invisalign?

Dr. Lin recommends Invisalign as it offers a range of advantages over traditional metal braces. The benefits of using Invisalign to correct the alignment of your teeth include:

  • They can be taken out when eating and cleaning your teeth
  • Aligners are made of smooth plastic so they’re gentle on your gums and won’t irritate your mouth
  • No wires are used, so there’s no risk of broken wires or cuts in your mouth
  • Aligners are nearly invisible, making it difficult for others to tell you’re wearing them

With the gentle but effective Invisalign method of straightening your teeth, you don’t need to compromise your appearance or your comfort to achieve outstanding results.

What happens during Invisalign treatment?

At his Livermore office, Dr. Lin develops a treatment plan to correct your teeth’s alignment. He shows you how each set of aligners will work to move specific teeth over the course of your treatment.

Once Dr. Lin fits your first set of aligners, you’ll wear them for a few weeks before moving on to the next set. Dr. Lin sees you every four to six weeks so he can monitor your progress and give you the next sets of aligners, which you can change on your own at home. You need to wear your aligners for 22 hours a day to give them time to shift your teeth into their optimal position, but you can take them out when eating and clean your teeth.

Invisalign is only available from specially trained dentists and orthodontists such as Brent C. Lin, DDS, in Livermore, California, so call his office or schedule your consultation online today to find out if these innovative clear aligners can improve your oral health.
