WHAT IS INVISALIGN® CLEAR ALIGNER THERAPY?
Invisalign® clear aligners are the modern way to straighten your teeth. After taking a digital scan at our office using our iTero intraoral scanner, your dentist will develop a treatment plan using a series of removable, virtually invisible, custom-made aligners.
CAN YOU EAT WHILE WEARING YOUR INVISALIGN® CLEAR ALIGNERS?
In some cases, yes. However because every case is different, it is best to follow the instructions of your dentist to make sure the aligners are being used in a way that benefits your smile.
DO I SLEEP WITH MY INVISALIGN® CLEAR ALIGNERS?
Yes. Your aligners should be worn for approximately 23 hours a day to maximize their effects in moving your teeth to their new position.
IS INVISALIGN® FASTER THAN BRACES?
This is a tricky one! Since every case is different, treatment time using Invisalign versus traditional braces can vary! It's best to speak to your dentist about your smile to help answer this question specifically for you.
WHAT CAN INVISALIGN® NOT FIX?
Invisalign technology is constantly evolving to treat more and more tooth positions and movements. Sometimes your natural jaw development and position can play a significant role in how your teeth fit together, which unfortunately Invisalign is unable to influence. However, in some cases it still is possible to improve your smile without changing your jaw anatomy and development.
IS INVISALIGN® PAINFUL?
Invisalign treatment moves your teeth by applying gentle, constant force, but some people do feel temporary discomfort for the first few days of wearing a new set of aligners. Typically, people describe it as feeling “pressure” and it’s normal — it’s a sign your Invisalign clear aligners are working and transforming your smile. Please see your dentist if you have any concerns or experience continued discomfort.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR INVISALIGN® TO WORK?
The complexity of your current tooth position and how your teeth interact with each other ultimately determine the length of time it will take for your teeth to move into their new positions. Each case is different, so ask your dentist for an estimated treatment time for your new smile.
CAN YOU PAY FOR INVISALIGN® MONTHLY?
Yes! An initial down payment is needed to collect your records and process your treatment plan for your new smile, and the remainder can be split over the course of a few months up to 1 year, considering what you are comfortable with each month.
HOW LONG DO YOU WEAR INVISALIGN®?
Your Invisalign aligners are suggested to be worn approximately 23 hours a day - aside from eating, drinking and performing oral hygiene. This ensures the aligners are able to gently move your teeth over time and can have the optimal effect possible.
DO I HAVE TO BRUSH MY TEETH BEFORE PUTTING MY INVISALIGN® TRAYS BACK IN?
Ideally, you want to keep your teeth as free from sugars and bacteria while you're wearing your Invisalign aligners to prevent cavity formation
IS INVISALIGN® A PERMENANT FIX?
The best way to maintain the new position of your teeth is to wear your retainers regularly. As long as you want your teeth to stay straight, the retainers do need to be worn, otherwise your teeth can shift back into their original position.
DOES INVISALIGN® MAKE MY TEETH YELLOW?
Invisalign itself does not cause tooth discoloration, however if you consume foods and liquids while wearing your aligners or do not brush or rinse your teeth before replacing your aligners after consuming food or drink, the pigments from food can discolor your teeth and sugars leftover from them also have the potential to cause cavities.
WILL INVISALIGN® GIVE ME A LISP?
At first, when wearing aligners for the first time, it can take time for your tongue to get used to them, which sometimes can cause a minor temporary lisp. However this is quickly resolved in a few days once your tongue gets used to the aligners.
HOW MUCH WILL INVISALIGN® COST WITH INSURANCE?
Every insurance plan is different in terms of coverage for orthodontics (tooth movement) including treatment using Invisalign. Check with your insurance carrier or your dental office to assess your coverage to avoid surprises!
