How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign moves your teeth using a set of “trays'' or “aligners'' that look sort of like retainers or night guards for teeth grinding. Each tray is worn for 20-22 hours each day, usually for 2 weeks.

As you wear the tray, it applies gentle, even pressure on the teeth to shift them toward the proper position. By swapping to a new set of clear aligners every 2 weeks, you’ll be able to continually shift and adjust the position of your teeth. This results in a beautiful, straight, and even smile without the unsightly appearance, discomfort, and stigma of braces.

The Benefits of Invisalign

Why choose Invisalign instead of braces? Here are just a few reasons many patients in our Aubrey office, particularly adults, choose to straighten their teeth with Invisalign.

Invisible & Subtle

Invisalign is completely invisible when you wear your clear aligners, and won't affect your speech. This makes it much more subtle compared to braces.

Enhanced Comfort

There are no metal components to irritate your mouth or poke your lips and tongue, and Invisalign tends to cause less discomfort compared to braces when your teeth move.

Convenient Treatment

Since you can remove your aligners to eat and drink, and to brush and floss, there are no dietary restrictions and oral hygiene is easy. You also don’t have to spend as much time at the dentist, since Invisalign usually only requires a 10-15 minute appointment every 4-6 weeks.

The Invisalign Treatment Process

To begin the process, you’ll need to come to 1385 Dental Studio. Dr. Mustafa will examine your mouth and take digital impressions to determine if you’re a good candidate. Dr. Mustafa will simply create a 3D model of your teeth with our iTero scanner – no need for messy impression trays here!

If Invisalign is right for you, Dr. Mustafa will begin working to develop your treatment plan right away. In a few weeks, your first several sets of clear aligners will come to our Aubrey office add you’ll pick them up.

After you get your clear aligners, you’ll wear them according to Dr. Mustafa’s instructions. In most cases, you’ll need to wear each set for 2 weeks, and keep them in for 20-22 hours per day for the best results. About every 4 to 6 weeks, you’ll come into our office for a brief checkup, and you’ll get your next few sets of Invisalign trays.

Overall, treatment usually takes about a year for most people, but this can depend on your specific case. During your consultation, Dr. Mustafa will give you more information about your expected treatment time.
