Invisalign Q & A


How can Invisalign straighten my teeth?

Invisalign® is a system of graduated aligning trays custom-made to fit your teeth and gently nudge them to their final, more perfect alignment over about a year or two. Dr. Caunitz takes 3D digital scans of your teeth and designs a plan to coax them into place. The Invisalign lab translates the 3D images and your dentist’s plan into nearly invisible trays that fit over your teeth.

Each Invisalign tray differs just slightly from the previous one. As you change them every two weeks, the Invisalign trays gently rotate, push, or pull your teeth into a healthier alignment. At six-week intervals, you come to Dr. Caunitz so she can check your progress.

What kinds of alignment problems can Invisalign fix?

Dr. Caunitz can design your Invisalign plan to correct almost any alignment problem, even extremely complicated cases. Some of the issues Invisalign corrects include:

  • Underbite  
  • Overbite  
  • Crossed bite  
  • Crowded teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Open bite

Is Invisalign better than braces?

Unlike traditional wire-and-bracket braces, the Invisalign custom-designed aligner trays are nearly invisible. The Invisalign system is made of a clear, soft patented SmartTrack™ polymer that allows you to look professional and attractive throughout the alignment. Other advantages of Invisalign include:

  • Won’t injure soft tissues
  • Removable for eating, cleaning, and special occasions
  • Allows you to brush and floss normally
  • Protects teeth during sports
  • Can be removed for two to four hours per day
  • Does not restrict what you can eat

If you have a teenager, ask Dr. Caunitz about Invisalign Teen®. The Invisalign Teen aligners feature a compliance dot that turns blue when it’s time for your teen to switch to a new tray.
