Invisalign treatment: FAQs
How long is the treatment?
The length of treatment depends on mulitple factors, including how complex your case is and how often you wear your aligners. Your doctor will determine exactly how long your treatment will take based on specific needs.
Are there restrictions on what I can eat while in treatment?
Invisalign clear aligners are removable, so there are no food restrictions. With traditional wires and brackets, there's a long list of foods you unfortunately cannot enjoy because they can damage or get stuck in your braces.
How often do I wear the aligners?
Wear your Invisalign aligners 20 to 22 hours a day to achieve the best result. Invisalign clear aligners fit your life. You can remove your aligners for eating, drinking, brushing, flossing, special occasions, and playing your favorite sport or instrument.
Who can use Invisalign clear aligners?
Invisalign treatment can be a great solution for both adults and teens looking for a virtually invisible method to improve their smile. Invisalign clear aligners make it possible to correct common teeth-straightening and bite issues, from simple to complex - all without interrupting your busy life.
What is the process?
Invisalign treatment starts with a free consultation by an Invisalign-trained doctor. Your doctor will evaluate your smile and then map out a precise, customized digital treatment plan that showcases the step-by-step transformation of your smile.
What are the benefits of Invisalign treatment?
Invisalign treatment is much more than a pretty smile. Crowded teeth are more difficult to clean, causing build-up of plaque that causes gingivitis and may lead to bone loss and periodontal disease. Invisalign clear aligners align teeth, improve periodontal hygiene, and are non-evasive, resulting in easier teeth cleaning.
