Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear plastic aligners to guide your teeth to corrected positions instead of relying on metal brackets and wires like traditional braces.

You wear each pair of top and bottom aligners for two weeks before switching them for the next set in your custom-made series. Most patients wear 30-80 sets of aligners over 6-18 months.

What are Damon braces?

Damon braces are another innovative orthodontic treatment. Damon braces include brackets and wires, but instead of having to schedule frequent dental appointments, Damon braces are self-ligating. This means that as your teeth move into their new positions, the brackets slide along the wires.

Damon braces don’t use the same kind of pressure as traditional braces with bands and wires and are often combined with supplemental treatments like palate expanders and tooth extractions.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

There are many benefits to choosing Invisalign treatments to correct your smile. One of the primary reasons that Invisalign has become so popular is that the aligners are nearly invisible while being worn, which means that no one will know you’re having orthodontic treatment unless they look very closely.

Another benefit is that the aligners are removable for short periods of time. This means that you don’t have to give up any of your favorite foods and that you can brush and floss your teeth normally. You need to wear your aligners for 22-23 hours per day for maximum effectiveness.

Once your dentist is satisfied that your teeth are moving as planned, they’ll give you 2-3 sets of aligners at a time so you can go longer between your Invisalign checkups.

What are the benefits of Damon braces?

There are many reasons to choose Damon braces instead of traditional metal braces. Damon braces use clear brackets that are more or less invisible while being worn. Treatment is also usually quicker with Damon braces and requires fewer in-office visits with the team at Sun-Park Dental.

Damon braces exert less force on your teeth, so they provide more comfortable treatment than traditional braces. The brackets are smaller so there are fewer places for bacteria and plaque to build up.

How do I know which treatment is right for me?

The experienced dentists at Sun-Park Dental offer comprehensive consultations to determine the best treatment to correct your smile. They’ll examine your teeth, take digital X-rays, and talk to you about your lifestyle and expectations. This is also a great opportunity for you to ask questions so you can make an informed decision.
