Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a teeth-straightening method that shifts your teeth into alignment over time with continual, controlled pressure. You wear a series of custom-made thermoplastic aligner trays that fit comfortably over your teeth for at least 22 hours every day for best results.

Every two weeks, you return to Del Mar Dentistry Center for a new custom tray. The entire process typically takes between six to 18 months, but the duration depends on your case and treatment goals.

To care for the aligners, Dr. Eizadi recommends removing and then rinsing them with warm water daily. You can also brush them with a soft toothbrush. Dr. Eizadi provides easy-to-follow, comprehensive care instructions.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign is a gradual process. During your initial consultation, Dr. Eizadi takes impressions of your teeth that she uses to form a 3D model. The 3D model helps her create a customized treatment plan that precisely maps the projected movement of your teeth and estimates the total treatment time.

Dr. Eizadi also uses 3D computer simulation to show you a preview of how your straightened teeth will look.

Next, a dental lab custom designs your aligner trays, and you start treatment. Every two weeks after that, you switch to a new set of trays until you’re happy with the results. Following Invisalign treatment, Dr. Eizadi might recommend wearing a retainer fabricated from the same material as your aligner trays to maintain your results.
