Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign? 

Invisalign is a groundbreaking orthodontic system that uses a series of custom-fitted aligner trays to straighten crooked teeth, correct improper bite alignment, and close gaps. 

On top of fixing protruding teeth and addressing mild to moderate spacing problems, Invisalign can help solve most common bite problems, including:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites

Made from clear, BPA-free plastic, Invisalign aligners are discreet as well as removable — most people won’t notice you’re wearing them, and you can take them out when it’s time to eat or brush your teeth.

How does Invisalign work? 

Like regular braces, Invisalign uses precision-applied force to incrementally alter the position of your teeth over time. Because the Invisalign system provides better control and timing of that force, however, it can usually get the job done more quickly than wire-and-bracket braces. 

Dr. Malakuti uses sophisticated 3D imaging and specialized computer software to develop your Invisalign treatment plan and create your custom aligners. Each aligner is designed to prompt precise, incremental changes until your teeth are straight and your bite is aligned. 

Your personal treatment plan determines how long you wear each aligner (one or two weeks), as well as which teeth are moved at each stage for the best possible results. 

Why should I choose Invisalign? 

When it comes to straightening teeth and transforming your smile, Invisalign offers several major advantages over conventional braces, including being:


Because Invisalign clear aligners are inconspicuous, they won’t detract from your smile. For teens and adults alike, this makes them an attractive alternative to regular braces. 


Made from smooth, precision-contoured SmartTrack® material, Invisalign aligners provide a remarkably comfortable fit that won’t scrape your gums or harm your tooth enamel. 


Although you should wear your Invisalign aligners for at least 20 hours each day to keep your treatment on track, you can remove them for sports practice, a job interview, or a first date.


You can also remove your Invisalign aligners when it’s time to eat, brush, and floss. This unique feature makes it easier to maintain optimal oral hygiene throughout your treatment.
