Frequently Asked Questions About Invisible Smile Enhancement
Questions: How does Invisalign work?
Answers: Patients receive a set of custom-made clear plastic aligners. They wear the aligners between 20 and 22 hours a day. About every two weeks, they upgrade to a new set. Over the period of a year, their teeth are gradually and gently repositioned.
Questions: Does Dr. Alpan offer Invisalign Teen?
Answers: Yes. With Invisalign Teen, each aligner contains a small blue dot on the end. The dot will wear away if the aligners are worn properly, allowing you to monitor your child’s usage. Invisalign also provides up to six replacement aligners in case your teen looses or misplaces an aligner.
Questions: What are lingual braces?
Answers: Lingual braces are a set of small brackets and wires that are placed on the back of the teeth. This means your braces are hidden from view.
Questions: What are the benefits of Incognito Hidden Braces?
Answers: Since the lingual braces are smaller, there is a reduced chance of breakage. This also means the braces don’t interfere with your speech. Patients with Incognito braces report a reduction in discomfort. The Incognito system also requires fewer visits and adjustment, which saves both time and money. Finally, lingual braces offer a faster treatment time.
