Invisalign Q & A

Springfield Dental Solutions

What is Invisalign?

Similar to a retainer, Invisalign is a custom plastic aligner system, or series of trays, that corrects misaligned teeth. Your aligners fit snugly over your teeth and are virtually invisible.

Using state-of-the art material and technology, Invisalign applies pressure in specific places to straighten and improve your smile. Like traditional metal braces, Invisalign also shifts teeth vertically and horizontally.


Am I a good candidate for Invisalign?

At your consultation, Dr. Yoon evaluates your teeth, mouth, and gums to determine if Invisalign is a fit for you. If everything looks good, Dr. Yoon maps out your custom Invisalign treatment plan so you know exactly what to expect.

Men, women, and teenagers with the following orthodontic issues are ideal candidates for Invisalign:

  • Gapped teeth
  • Crossbite
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Crowded teeth


How does Invisalign work? 

Dr. Yoon creates a series of retainers that you wear for two to six weeks at a time until your teeth are fully aligned. You take out your aligner when you eat, brush your teeth, and floss.

Dr. Yoon recommends checkup appointments every six weeks. He checks your trays and your bite, and evaluates how your teeth are responding to the treatment. He makes any necessary adjustments to the aligners in the office.


How long does Invisalign treatment take?

Just like traditional braces, most patients have straight teeth in one to two years. If you start with severely misaligned teeth, it may take longer. Likewise, if Dr. Yoon is correcting mild crowding or small gaps in your teeth, it may take less than a year.


What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Due to its many benefits, Invisalign treatment has surged in popularity. Some of the reasons that you may prefer Invisalign include:

  • Removeable for better oral hygiene and eating
  • Clear, invisible aligners make you less self-conscious
  • No mouth irritations from wires or brackets
  • Fewer office visits make it more convenient
  • Smooth and comfortable for extended wear
