Do you have questions about Invisalign? Read on for answers to frequently asked questions:
Question: Will the aligners feel comfortable?
Answer: Yes! They are custom made, so they will fit you comfortably. We take detailed impressions of your smile to create a series of aligners, so each set will be tailored specifically for your smile. The plastic material ensures the wearers avoid the gum and cheek irritation often encountered with metal braces.
Question: How noticeable will the aligners be?
Answer: The Invisalign® aligners will be created from a clear plastic, which means when worn they will be practically invisible. Many adults and teens prefer the aligners over braces for this reason, as they don’t have to worry about the impact on their smiles’ appearance.
Question: Can I ever remove them?
Answer: Yes! The aligners should be worn for between 20 and 22 hours a day. Patients may remove them before meals, so they won’t have to avoid certain foods or make changes to their diet. The aligners can also be taken out prior to brushing and flossing, which helps teeth stain free and healthy during treatment. You may also remove them for special occasions as well.
Question: How long will treatment take?
Answer: The exact amount of time will depend on the extent and cause of the misalignment, as well as whether the patient wears them as the dentist recommended. On average, adults need about a year to see optimal results, while teens may require up to 18 months. If you have any questions about Invisalign, contact our team today.
