Quiz: Invialign And Your Appearance

Patients can have many questions about Invisalign before they start treatment. Is it really possible to wear your aligners without people noticing them? How long will it take to complete treatment? How many follow-up visits will you need to schedule? Of course, one question can often loom largest in people’s minds – how will you look after you complete Invisalign treatment? You should know that Invisalign is meant to supply real orthodontic support. If you have a smile that is negatively affected by spacing or overlap concerns, this discreet corrective procedure can lead to dynamic improvements to your smile, while also being of benefit to your oral health.

Questions:

True Or False: Invisalign aligners are made with clear plastic. When you wear your aligners, it will be difficult for people to notice them.

True Or False: Many people use Invisalign to make corrections when their teeth have shifted after earlier orthodontic work.

True Or False: An iTero digital scanner can be used to plan your treatment, and will allow your dentist to show you how your smile will look at the end of your time using Invisalign.

Answers:

True! Invisalign aligners offer a discreet adjustment. People can see a dramatic improvement made to your smile after treatment, but during your correction it will be hard for others to notice that you are wearing them.

True! If your teeth have begun to shift after earlier orthodontic work, Invisalign can help you address these changes, and bring your smile back to its corrected state.

True! During the treatment planning stage, your dentist will take digital impressions of your smile using an iTero digital scanner. After a relatively brief scanning period (typically around fifteen minutes) your dentist will be able to show you a prediction of how your smile will look at the conclusion of your treatment.
