Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

With over 6 million smiles treated and counting, Invisalign is a popular method for straightening teeth and improving bites. Invisalign treatment includes a series of clear aligners custom-designed for you that you wear for 20 to 22 hours a day.

In just 12 to 18 months, you’ll have a more perfect smile. Invisalign is a convenient way to straighten your teeth because you don’t need to go through the pain and hassle of traditional metal braces.

Invisalign aligners are clear and removable, so you can continue enjoying your favorite foods and activities while you work towards straight teeth. You’ll take your aligners out to eat and drink, and put them back in after brushing.

What can Invisalign correct?

Invisalign is a powerful orthodontic treatment that can fix many teens’ and adults’ most common cosmetic imperfections. Invisalign works by gently moving your teeth to fix gaps, crowding, and more. With Invisalign, Dr. Yap regularly treats patients who have:

  • Gapped teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • An open bite

Invisalign can also help correct bite problems or malocclusions. Overbite, underbite, and crossbite can all be fixed with Invisalign treatment. Whether you want to make small changes or dramatically transform your look, Invisalign can help you get there.

Is Invisalign right for me?

For many patients, Invisalign is a great option to get a straighter smile. If you’re interested in Invisalign, Dr. Yap begins by evaluating your teeth. He scans your bite to develop your personalized treatment plan.

If you decide to start Invisalign treatment, you can expect to wear a new set of aligners every one to two weeks. You’ll visit Dr. Yap every six to eight weeks to make sure that your aligners fit properly and are moving your teeth correctly.

Invisalign is a great option because treatment fits your life. You can continue enjoying your favorite foods and activities while using Invisalign. Keeping your teeth clean is easier because you don’t have to brush and floss around metal brackets and wires. 

You can have straighter teeth without the need for traditional braces. Consider Invisalign to dramatically change your smile and give you the confidence you never knew you had. Call the office or book an appointment with Dr. Yap online today.
