Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

One of the more popular transparent orthodontics treatments, Invisalign is a revolutionary system that straightens your teeth and aligns your bite with a series of comfortable, clear plastic aligners.

Invisalign has become an incredibly popular alternative to traditional metal braces. Over six million smiles worldwide have benefited from the use of Invisalign.

What conditions does Invisalign treat?

Invisalign effectively treats most of the same conditions that are corrected with braces, such as:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open Bite

Many patients also choose to use Invisalign to just achieve generally straighter teeth.

Why should I choose Invisalign?

Invisalign’s state-of-the-art system has a number of benefits in helping you get a straighter, healthier smile, such as:


Invisalign’s aligners are made of a smooth, BPA-free plastic that fits snugly around your teeth. They’re comfortable and hardly noticeable in your mouth.


Invisalign’s aligners are removable, so you don’t need to change your diet or learn any special brushing and flossing techniques during your treatment. All you have to do is remove your aligners when it’s time to eat, brush, or floss, and put them back on as soon as you’re done. 


Invisalign’s aligners are clear and virtually invisible in your mouth, so you can straighten your smile without anybody knowing that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. 

How do I get started with Invisalign?

Your journey toward a straighter smile with Invisalign begins with a consultation at Viva Smile. Your dentist takes an impression of your mouth that’s used to make a virtual model of your smile in a computer. 

That model is then used to map out all of the steps your teeth need to take in order to arrive at a target alignment. Each of those steps is used as a model for fabricating each of the aligners in your series. 

You wear your aligners all day, every day, only taking them out to brush, floss, and eat. You move on to the next aligner in your series every two weeks, until you eventually arrive at your target alignment. Some patients are able to get through treatment and achieve their dream smile in as little as nine months.
