Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic system that can straighten crooked teeth, correct improper bite alignment, and close small gaps using a series of custom orthodontic aligner trays.

In addition to successfully addressing mild to moderate spacing problems, the Invisalign system can fix protruding teeth and a wide range of bites issue, including:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites

Made from medical-grade, BPA-free plastic, Invisalign aligners are unobtrusive as well as removable. Most people won’t notice you’ve got them on, and you can take them out for short periods of time when necessary.

How does Invisalign work?

Like conventional braces, Invisalign aligners change the position of your teeth through the use of applied force. Because the Invisalign approach offers better control and timing of that force, it can often get the job done more quickly and efficiently than regular braces.

The Invisalign system combines 3D imaging and orthodontic software to create a series of custom-fitted aligners, each of which is carefully designed to force specific, gradual changes until all your teeth are straight and your bite is fully aligned.

Depending on your treatment needs, you wear each aligner for a week or two before moving on to the next aligner in the series. Your personal Invisalign plan determines which teeth are moved at each stage for maximal efficiency and the best possible results.

Can Invisalign treat complex orthodontic issues?

Tribeca Dental Studio’s staff prosthodontist has the expertise and experience to successfully address more complicated orthodontic cases with Invisalign.

Even so, patients with very complex bite problems or alignment issues will probably get better results by wearing traditional braces first, then fine-tuning their results with Invisalign.

Why should I choose Invisalign?

When it comes to creating your best smile, Invisalign offers several considerable benefits over regular braces. Invisalign aligners are:


Because Invisalign aligners are clear, they’ll never detract from your smile. This makes them an appealing alternative to regular wire-and-bracket braces for teens as well as adults.


While you should wear your Invisalign aligners for at least 20 hours a day to stay on track with your treatment plan, you can conveniently remove them for a tennis game, job interview, or first date.


Being able to remove Invisalign aligners when it’s time to eat, brush, and floss makes it much easier to maintain excellent oral hygiene throughout your treatment.


Invisalign aligners are made from smooth, precision-contoured SmartTrack® material so they provide a close, comfortable fit that won’t scrape your gums or damage your tooth enamel.
