Frequently Asked Questions - Invisalign

Invisalign is a revolutionary teeth-straightening treatment that offers a clear, discreet alternative to traditional braces. It utilizes computer-aided design (CAD) and 3D printing to create a customized treatment plan tailored to your dental needs. It consists of a series of custom-made, clear aligners for each individual, gradually shifting the teeth into their desired position. The combination of advanced technology and the expertise of our orthodontists ensures the most accurate and efficient teeth-straightening process.

Invisalign works by utilizing advanced 3D imaging technology to create a virtual representation of your teeth, allowing our orthodontists to plan out your entire treatment process. We create a unique, customized treatment plan, and meticulously adjust for each tooth to gradually guide YOUR teeth into perfect alignment. You receive a set of aligners that you will change out every 1-2 weeks, which allows for the gradual, controlled movement of your teeth and/or jaw into alignment.

By gradually shifting your teeth and jaw into proper alignment, Invisalign improves your bite functionality and promotes better long-term oral health. Invisalign can also enhance your smile, jawline, and overall facial symmetry. The results from Invisalign can provide a significant boost to your facial appearance and contribute to an increased sense of self-confidence.

Yes, Invisalign is highly effective in treating a wide range of orthodontic issues. Invisalign is clinically proven to achieve the same results as traditional braces, including correcting crowded, crooked, and misaligned teeth. In addition to straightening crooked teeth, Invisalign can also correct bite alignment issues such as overbites and underbites.
The Invisalign treatment duration varies depending on your case’s complexity. On average, treatment takes 12 to 18 months. However, your orthodontist will provide a more accurate estimate after assessing your needs. Patience and consistency are key to achieving your desired results.
Most patients generally experience mild discomfort or pressure during the initial stages of wearing each new set of aligners. Even though there can be discomfort, is a sign that the aligners are working to move your teeth! However, any discomfort should be temporary and will subside within a few days. If it does not, please contact us!
Yes, one of the key advantages of Invisalign is that the aligners are easily removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. However, it is recommended to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day to stay on track with your treatment timeline.
Invisalign attachments, also known as buttons, are small tooth-colored bumps attached to specific teeth during treatment. They provide additional grip for the aligners, helping to achieve more precise and controlled tooth movements. Your orthodontist will determine if attachments are necessary for your treatment.
While it may take a short adjustment period, most patients find that Invisalign aligners have minimal impact on their speech. Any temporary changes in speech are usually minor and fade as you become accustomed to wearing the aligners. Practice makes perfect!
No, unlike traditional braces, there are no food restrictions with Invisalign. Invisalign aligners are removable, meaning you can enjoy all types of foods without worrying about interrupting your treatment with broken brackets and wires. However, you should remove the aligners before eating or drinking anything other than water to avoid staining or unnecessary wear and tear. Enjoy all your favorite foods, but brush your teeth before putting the aligners back on to avoid trapping food and bacteria on your teeth.
It is essential to maintain good oral hygiene during your Invisalign treatment. Healthy teeth move faster! Clean your trays by gently brushing them with a toothbrush and toothpaste or by using the Invisalign cleaning system recommended by your orthodontist. Brush and floss your teeth as usual!
Invisalign is suitable for most adults and teenagers with permanent teeth requiring orthodontic treatment. However, only an experienced orthodontist can determine if Invisalign is the right option for you based on your dental needs.
