Invisalign Q & A

IPI of Torrance

What does Invisalign do?

Invisalign is an innovative new way to straighten teeth. It offers a great alternative to traditional teeth-straightening treatments like braces. With Invisalign, clear plastic aligners fitted over your teeth will align your teeth little by little over time.

The aligners are removable for easy eating and teeth cleaning, but you need to wear them for at least 20 hours per day for the best results. Wear the Invisalign aligners any time you are not eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth.

What are the benefits of Invisalign over braces?

Due to its comfort and ease of use, Invisalign is an increasingly popular treatment for misaligned teeth, especially among young adults. Invisalign offers the following benefits over braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches:

  • Invisibility, so people see your real teeth, not a mouthful of metal
  • Comfort, because the soft plastic won’t cut your mouth like sharp metal braces
  • Convenience, because you can remove them quickly whenever you need to brush, floss, or eat
  • Timing, since Invisalign has been shown to work up to 50% faster than other orthodontic treatments


Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign can effectively fix mild to moderate dental misalignments, such as:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Teeth misalignment after braces


Your dentist may recommend an alternative treatment if you have major orthodontic and alignment issues. Book an appointment with IPI of Torrance to find out if Invisalign is right for you.

What should I expect from an Invisalign treatment?

Your dentist will start by examining your teeth to check that Invisalign is the right choice for you. They may take a physical impression of your teeth or use a digital scanning device to create 3D images. Using these, they will develop a precise treatment plan.

Then your dentist customizes clear, plastic aligners that fit your teeth. The aligners gently move your teeth into ideal alignment while you wear them. To keep your teeth moving in the right direction, your dentist will occasionally make your new aligners. At the end of this process, your smile will have its new shape!
