Common Questions About Invisalign

invisalignInvisalign is one of the best ways to straighten your teeth and correct problems with your bite. Invisalign is the next generation of orthodontic treatment, perfect for many patients with gapped teeth, crooked teeth, or misaligned teeth. Here are some of the most common questions about Invisalign.

How Does Invisalign Straighten Teeth?
Each aligner puts a small pressure on many teeth simultaneously, and they move in response to the pressure. The distance of movement is only what is biologically possible in a two week period.

Will People Be Able To Tell I Am Wearing Braces?
Invisalign treatment includes a series of clear, plastic aligners that are fitted to match your teeth. Though traditional metal braces are often clunky and noticeable, people will not be able to tell the difference between your normal smile and your smile with aligners. Invisalign offers a convenient, subtle way to correct the straightness of your teeth.

How Do I Know What My Smile Will Look Like After Treatment With Invisalign?
Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign is planned using advanced computer technology and 3D imaging software. Every step of your treatment is planned before you put on your first aligner. Using this software we can even give you a 3D preview of what your new smile will look like before the treatment process begins.

How Will Invisalign Affect My Diet?
Since you can take out your aligners before you eat, you can eat whatever you want while straightening your teeth with Invisalign. Just make sure that when you finish, you brush both your teeth and the aligners before you put them back in.

How Long Will I Have To Wear My Invisalign Aligners?
Your Invisalign aligners should be worn for 22 hours a day. That still leaves plenty of time to take them out when you brush and floss, or when you eat and drink.
