Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign clear aligners are a virtually invisible, completely removable, teeth straightening system. Your teeth are gradually straightened over the course of your treatment as you progress through your set of customized clear aligners until your teeth reach their final positions.

The number of Invisalign aligners worn during treatment averages between 18-30, but varies from case to case. Treatment takes nine to 15 months. The comfort and ease that come with Invisalign aligners allow you to smile more during your treatment as well as after.

Invisalign has improved more than 5 million smiles and is an effective treatment for both adults and teenagers. Dr. Murphy and her associates are proud to be certified providers of this innovative and proven technology.

How does Invisalign work?

Tracy L. Murphy, DMD & Associates develop your Invisalign straightening plan using state-of-the-art digital technology.

The high-tech iTero® Element™ digital scanner produces precise 3D images of your teeth within minutes, and without the mess and discomfort of traditional goo-based dental impressions. In combination with Invisalign’s cutting-edge software, Tracy L. Murphy, DMD & Associates can create digital simulations to see how Invisalign can improve your smiles before you begin treatment.

Once your treatment strategy is outlined, your custom Invisalign aligners are made. These aligners are designed to exert small amounts of force on your teeth to gradually move them into position without pain or discomfort.

During your Invisalign treatment, you wear your aligners for 20-22 hours each day, removing them to eat, drink, floss, and brush. Regular appointments with Dr. Beal or his associates every four to six weeks ensure that the realignment of your teeth is on track.

What are the advantages of Invisalign?

Invisalign uses advanced innovations to provide more control and predictability over teeth straightening than other methods. This also provides faster results and more comfort than other aligners and traditional braces.

In addition to straightening teeth, Invisalign can treat a variety of conditions, including:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Gap teeth
  • Open bites
  • Crowded teeth
