Your Quick Guide to Invisalign

Posted by Jeanne V. Devi, D.D.S. on Aug 10 2021, 09:04 AM

Are you searching for an alternative to traditional braces? Invisalign is what you need. Invisalign is a modern, transparent aligner that fixes bite and alignment issues and straightens your teeth.

Over the last two decades, Invisalign has helped improve the lives of over 10 million people in the United States and around the world. Dr. Devi at Jeanne V. Devi, DDS, Aesthetic & Restorative Dentistry in Pasadena, California, offers patients a host of complete orthodontic treatments and is a certified Invisalign expert. 

In this blog, we want to share some important information that will help you better understand what Invisalign is and what its benefits are.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign stands for invisible aligners. These advanced orthodontic appliances are made from a trademark thermoplastic material called SmartTrack. 

Invisalign aligners offer a host of advantages to patients looking to straighten their teeth. One of the most important ones is that they are discreet compared to traditional metal braces. So much so that people can rarely tell you’re wearing them. 

On top of this, Invisalign takes less time to show results and gives you the flexibility to remove the aligners when you eat, drink, or brush your teeth, thus allowing you to maintain your oral health.

Who Is Invisalign For?

Invisalign is suitable for teenagers and adults looking for a more discreet orthodontic appliance to straighten their teeth.

What Does Getting Invisalign Involve?

At Jeanne V. Devi, DDS, Aesthetic & Restorative Dentistry in Pasadena, California, there are four steps involved in getting Invisalign:

  • The first step is a dental appointment with Dr. Devi. During the visit, Dr. Devi will assess your oral health to determine whether you are the right candidate for the treatment.
  • The second step involves Dr. Devi using an advanced intraoral scanner to scan your mouth and get a digital impression of your teeth. This step allows the doctor to map out your customized treatment plan.
  • For the third step, Dr. Devi uses specialized software to offer you a glimpse of the final results after the treatment process. After receiving your consent, Dr. Devi will send the requirements to the Invisalign lab, which will manufacture and send your aligners shortly.
  • The final step involves fitting the aligners onto your teeth. Here, Dr. Devi will make necessary adjustments to ensure the aligners fit snugly. Dr. Devi may also add special Invisalign attachments to your aligners to add additional pressure on specific areas.
