Invisalign Q&A

Are your crooked teeth impacting the look of your smile? Do you have multiple misaligned teeth that you want to be fixed? Invisalign may be the right option for you. Invisalign is a cosmetic dental treatment that we provide patients in our Bensalem, PA dental office. This solution uses clear aligners that are made using custom impressions of the teeth. Over time, the Invisalign aligners gently realign crooked and misaligned teeth. The professional dental team at Perfect Smiles of Bensalem works with patients one-on-one so they can meet their orthodontic goals with their custom-made Invisalign treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions about Invisalign

Learn more with answers to these frequently asked questions about Invisalign:

How long is Invisalign treatment?

The length of your Invisalign treatment depends on your specific orthodontic problems and compliance with the clear Invisalign aligners. If you only have several crooked teeth, your treatment may be shorter. Additionally, if you care for your aligners and wear them for at least 22 hours a day, your compliance will be reflected in your treatment time. Typically, patients complete Invisalign in 12 to 18 months.

Am I a candidate for Invisalign?

The best candidates for Invisalign are teens and adults who have mild to moderate orthodontic problems. We always make sure that patients are in good oral health before recommending treatment. If needed, we will provide patients with treatments such as periodontal therapy or tooth extractions prior to Invisalign.

How does Invisalign compare to metal braces?

Metal braces are a good option for patients with moderate to severe orthodontic issues. However, Invisalign offers many advantages for patients with milder misalignment. Because Invisalign aligners are clear, they are more discreet. The aligners are also removable, so patients can eat, brush, and floss without wires and brackets in the way. Many patients find that Invisalign is more comfortable, as braces have wires that can poke and irritate the gums.
