how invisalign® works

Invisalign aligner therapy is a teeth-straightening method for mild to moderate misalignment issues. It consists of clear removable aligners that gently move your teeth into their desired positions over time. The aligners are changed out approximately every two weeks as your teeth shift. It’s important to wear your aligners for a majority of the day so that you can stay on track with your treatment plan.

benefits of invisalign

The biggest reason patients choose Invisalign is because it’s a much less noticeable alternative to braces. The aligners are made from clear material so they blend in with your teeth. The aligners are also convenient to wear because they can be removed completely. This comes in handy for special occasions, and it makes it easy to brush or floss your teeth and eat.

Invisalign FAQs

Why Get Invisalign Instead of Braces?

Invisalign is a great way to avoid the hassle of traditional braces. If you don’t want to deal with a mouth full of metal and dietary restrictions, Invisalign is the way to go. You can experience a stress-free and subtle teeth-straightening process with this clear aligner therapy.

Where Do I Store My Invisalign Aligner?

For most of the time, your aligners are going to remain in your mouth. When you do need to take them out (for brushing and flossing your teeth or even enjoying some popcorn), you can keep them in a retainer case, which can be found at any local pharmacy or supercenter store.

How Do I Clean My Invisalign Aligner?

You can use a variety of materials to clean your aligners. Non-tar control toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush will suffice. If you’re looking for an alternative cleaning method, you can use mouthwash or even denture cleaner.
