Invisalign® FAQs

Will Invisalign fit my lifestyle?

Yes! Time for a chewy snack? No problem. Take out your aligners to eat or drink whenever you want. You can remove your Invisalign aligners to brush and floss regularly and keep your teeth and gums healthy.

You can occasionally remove your Invisalign aligners and enjoy a special night out. There’s no need to change a thing. Continue your day-to-day activities while still straightening your teeth.

What is Invisalign?

The Invisalign system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Invisalign uses advanced 3D computer imaging technology to depict your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. Then, a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for one to two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series. The process is repeated until the final position of your teeth is achieved. Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by your doctor based on your specific needs.

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are clear which makes Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others. Invisalign aligners are also removable. Unlike with traditional braces, Invisalign aligners allow you the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment simply by removing the aligners when you eat. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would to maintain fresh breath and good oral hygiene. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign treatment does not use metal brackets or wires, therefore, avoiding irritation to your mouth. In addition, you’ll spend less time in the doctor’s chair and scheduling appointments, and more time out doing the things you love. Finally, Invisalign’s technology allows you to preview your virtual results and treatment plan before you start your treatment so that you can visualize what your straight teeth will look once your treatment is complete.
