Invisalign® Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a state-of-the-art orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth and properly align your jaw. 

The aligners are more comfortable, convenient, and discreet than traditional metal braces, which makes Invisalign an incredibly popular treatment for people who want an easier way to straighten their smile. 

In fact, 8 million people worldwide have chosen Invisalign as their preferred method for a healthier and more attractive smile.

How does Invisalign work?

Dr. Abajian creates your Invisalign aligners from an impression of your smile. The aligners are uniquely designed to constantly exert a small amount of pressure on your teeth that gently pushes them into alignment. 

You wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours a day, and you move on to a new set of aligners about every two weeks as your teeth gradually move closer to the desired alignment.

How can Invisalign improve my smile?

Dr. Abajian can use Invisalign to correct many of the same conditions that traditional metal braces typically address, like:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Teeth that are widely spaced
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite

Talk to Dr. Abajian to see if Invisalign is right for you.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

As a modern orthodontic treatment, Invisalign offers a number of benefits, including:


The aligners are made from a BPA-free plastic that’s smooth and flexible, so unlike traditional metal braces, treatment with Invisalign won’t tear up the insides of your cheeks.


Because your aligners are removable, you can take them out whenever you need to eat, brush, or floss. This means that, unlike braces, you don’t have to change your diet during treatment or invest in special tools to keep your teeth clean.


Your aligners are clear and virtually disappear when you put them on your smile. That means that you don’t have to endure a mouthful-of-metal look to get a straighter smile, and nobody will even know that you’re straightening your smile unless you tell them.
