Invisalign & Clear Braces Q & A


What are clear braces?

Clear braces are a set of plastic aligners that gently coax your teeth into a straighter, more aesthetically pleasing bite. To get Invisalign aligners, Dr. Katz has to examine your teeth and put together a customized plan.

After a thorough exam and 3D imaging of your teeth, Invisalign sends you a set of aligners you switch out every 1-2 weeks, depending on your plan. You wear the aligners for 20-22 hours every day, taking them out to eat, brush, and floss. With proper wear, you’ll see results 50% faster than with traditional braces.


Who is a candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign corrects many bite imperfections, including:

  • Overbites and underbites
  • Crossbites and open bites
  • Gapped teeth or crowded teeth

Invisalign is a good choice for teens who play sports and fear injury while wearing metal braces. Invisalign also takes away the care concerns, pain, and hassle of metal braces.

Adults who need adjustments to their bite also benefit as Invisalign is a quicker and more aesthetically pleasing way to get the smile you desire.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign treatment plans typically work more quickly than traditional wire braces, so you get results faster. Other positive benefits include:

  • No diet restrictions: You take the aligners out to eat so you don’t have to avoid chewy or crunchy foods or cut-up large items.
  • Hygiene: You remove the aligners when you brush and floss, so there’s no discoloration or decay under your braces. Cleaning the aligners is simple: Just rinse them under warm water.
  • Nearly invisible: Most people won’t even notice you’re wearing the aligners.
  • Pain-free: Invisalign requires no metal brackets or wires that poke your soft tissue and cause pain.

You only need to come to the office for adjustments and review of your treatment plan once every 4-6 weeks, as opposed to more frequent visits with traditional braces. Plus, you can see the changes happening to your bite with each stage.
