Want straighter teeth? An attractive smile can change everything. Your self-esteem. Your outlook. Your life. Invisalign is the clear alternative to metal braces. Invisalign straightens teeth using nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. Led by Dr. Neha Roy and Dr. Roshni Patel, Foothill Square Dental Center (located in Milpitas, CA) offers orthodontic treatment with Invisalign to their patients. Read on to find out how Invisalign treatment works.


What are the aligners made of?

Invisalign aligner trays are made of a patented, transparent thermoplastic material created exclusively for the Invisalign treatment plan. Invisalign aligner trays are approved by the FDA. Your Invisalign aligner trays will be custom-made specifically for your teeth.


How does Invisalign treatment work?

You will wear each set of aligner trays for about 2 weeks. Invisalign aligner trays straighten teeth through the placement of controlled force on the teeth. Your teeth will gradually move over time. You will only remove your aligners to brush, floss, eat and drink. The average patient wears between 18 and 36 sets of Invisalign aligners during their treatment.


How long does the treatment take?

The average length of your treatment depends on the severity of your condition and can only be determined by your Invisalign-trained dental provider. The average Invisalign treatment time is 9 -18 months. Before you begin treatment, you will know exactly how long your treatment will take and what your teeth will look like at the end.


What are the benefits of Invisalign?

With Invisalign, achieving the straight smile you've always dreamed of doesn’t have to be a big deal. In fact, it barely has to impact your life at all. Invisalign aligners nearly invisible, so hardly anyone can tell you are straightening your teeth. Invisalign aligners are comfortable to wear. There are no metal wires which may cause mouth abrasions during treatment. Invisalign aligner trays are removable, so you can drink and eat whatever you want.
