Invisalign® Q&A How Does Invisalign® Work?
Invisalign® clear aligners are a terrific treatment option if you want to have a straighter, healthier smile but don’t want the hassle of a mouthful of brackets and wires. Dr. Portalupi will be able to tell you if you are a good candidate for Invisalign® during your free new patient consultation.
Invisalign® works by moving your teeth into proper alignment through a series of aligners. Each set moves your teeth gently and progressively closer to their proper alignment until your perfect smile is achieved.
To get the absolute best results, it is important that you choose the right orthodontist. Dr. Portalupi has been putting smiles on the faces of children, teens, and adults in the Woodland, CA area for over fifteen years. Call or click to schedule your free in-office or virtual consultation and see for yourself how great an orthodontic experience can be.
Invisalign® is the most advanced clear aligner system in the world. Backed by two decades of research and innovation, Invisalign® uses a series of removable clear aligners to move your teeth into their proper position instead of brackets and wires.
When you come in for your initial consultation, Dr. Portalupi will create a 3D scan of your mouth using our Smile 3D technology. He will create a personalized treatment plan just for you that maps out the precise movement of each tooth over time. Based on that information, a series of custom fitted Invisalign® clear aligners will be created. As you progress through each set of aligners, your teeth will gradually move into proper alignment, giving you a healthy, beautiful smile.
Invisalign® clear aligners are made of a thermoplastic material called SmartTrack®. This patented, FDA-approved material is soft and flexible and is free of any BPAs, BPS’, latex, or gluten. Invisalign® clear aligners are comfortable to wear and since they are transparent, they are practically invisible.
When you first start wearing your Invisalign® clear aligners – and when you switch to a new set – there may be some discomfort during the first few days. This is because your aligners are applying gentle, constant force to your teeth in order to move them into alignment. Most patients describe it as a feeling of pressure rather than actual pain. It is completely normal and should go away after a few days.
You will wear each set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day, changing to a new set of aligners roughly every one to two weeks. The total average length of treatment time for Invisalign® is between 12 and 18 months. Dr. Portalupi will be able to tell you exactly how long your treatment will take based upon your specific needs.
The average cost of Invisalign® treatment ranges between $3,000 and $7,000. The actual cost of your specific treatment will depend upon the complexity and severity of your case. Dr. Portalupi will talk with you about treatment costs and payment options during your new patient visit.
Not at all. This is one of the things our patients love about Invisalign®. Because the aligners are removable, you can eat all of your favorite foods – even the crunchy ones – without worrying about breaking your appliance.
