Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an industry-leading advancement in teeth alignment. With over 5 million smiles transformed, including 1 million teens, Invisalign is preferred by both patients and dentists for fixing minor misalignments.

Invisalign is a custom-made clear aligners system that works similarly to braces to straighten teeth. But unlike braces, Invisalign aligners are removable, clear, and virtually unnoticeable.

Dr. Swaintek-Lamb develops a customized plan to straighten your teeth by conducting a thorough exam and digital analysis. This allows her to get the perfect mold of your teeth to craft your aligners for lasting results.

Clear aligners are the preferred alternative to braces in some cases and can be worn to work, school, and more without notice.

What does Invisalign treat?

Invisalign helps to treat several cases of misalignment and other cosmetic concerns. Common treatable cases include:

  • Gap teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Open bite
  • Crossbite

How does Invisalign work?

Dr. Swaintek-Lamb performs 3D imaging of your teeth, which is then used to map out the adjustments needed. This mapping process determines the length of your treatment plan along with the adjustments needed at every stage.

From there, your information is sent to the Invisalign labs to custom create your aligners. The aligners make small adjustments to your smile over time and each set of aligners will fit differently to move teeth into alignment. Dr. Swaintek-Lamb monitors your individual progress and makes adjustments as needed as your teeth start to align.

What are the advantages of Invisalign?

Some of the advantages of choosing Invisalign include:

  • Aligners are customized to fit comfortably and securely
  • Avoids the visibility and maintenance of wires and brackets
  • Easily removable for eating and drinking
  • Made of SmartTrackĀ® material for controlled tooth movements
  • Aligners are virtually invisible
  • Can brush and floss as usual
  • Tracking compliance indicators allow parents to ensure teens are wearing their aligners

In addition to Invisalign, Dr. Swaintek-Lamb also provides traditional orthodontics. In cases of severe overbite, underbite, or other issues, expansions or braces may be recommended. Dr. Swaintek-Lamb and the care team at Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville treat patients of all ages and stages of life to help them get the perfectly aligned smile at any age.
