Invisalign Q & A

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign uses a set of clear plastic mouthpieces to pull your teeth into proper alignment gradually. Since they’re clear and unobtrusive, they’re a great inconspicuous alternative to braces. While using the Invisalign system, you’ll switch out your mouthpiece each week.

What are the steps in the treatment process?

First, you set up a consultation with Dr. Azer to see if you’re qualified for Invisalign. Dr. Azer has extensive training in correcting bite issues, so she can discuss your goals and provide her professional recommendations.

At your appointment, Dr. Azer scans your teeth to create a detailed 3D digital image of them. From there, she can map out a treatment plan, show the actual movements your teeth will follow on the screen, and provide a timeline. You even get a sneak peek of your final results!

Dr. Azer sends your digital impressions to the lab where they’ll create your mouthpieces. Once they come in, you meet with Dr. Azer to go over treatment protocol and care instructions.

You’ll wear your new aligners for at least 22 hours per day, switching them out every week or two as they gradually adjust your teeth. You’re able to remove the aligners to eat and brush your teeth.

Every six weeks or so during your treatment, you’ll check in with Dr. Azer to evaluate your progress. When you’re finished, Dr. Azer can get you set up with a retainer to maintain your new smile.

What are the benefits of aligned teeth?

Although you might value braces and aligners based for their aesthetic and cosmetic benefits, they provide some physical benefits as well. Invisalign benefits include:

  • Proper eating and speaking function
  • Preserves the health and longevity of teeth
  • Restores proper muscle and joint function
  • Reduces symptoms of TMJ pain
  • Improves the appearance of your smile

With her extensive training in bite correction, Dr. Azer recognizes how valuable aligned teeth are. After decay and gum disease, bite issues are the third-leading cause of tooth loss. If the teeth don’t fit together properly, you may bite down incorrectly and leave teeth susceptible to decay.

As a top Invisalign Preferred Provider, Dr. Azer provides top-notch bite correction. If you’re looking for a qualified Invisalign provider in the Newport Beach or Downey, California area, call or book an appointment online today with Dr. Azer.
