If you are looking for an orthodontic solution without the metal wires, we have a fantastic option for you to consider. Invisalign clear aligners take the discomfort out of your teethstraightening process. Does it sound too good to be true? Let’s take a look at some of the most common questions we hear from patients like yourself.
We can help shift your teeth around in your mouth to make your whole smile look even, aligned, and attractive with modern orthodontics that take the embarrassment out of treatment!
Q: Can Invisalign Straighten My Teeth As Well As Braces?
Q: How Comfortable Are Invisalign Aligners?
Q: Can I Eat Whatever I Want?
Q: Are Invisalign Aligners Really Invisible?
Q: What Should I Expect From The Experience?
A: Yes! There are very few cases that Invisalign cannot handle. We will plan your entire treatment before the first aligner ever goes in your mouth to be sure that you get the smile you’ve been dreaming of.
As the aligners do their work, your smile will transform before your eyes. The changes will be subtle over time, but when you see the before and after results, you will be blown away by the results and how simple it was to get them!
A: Very! Unlike metal braces that can poke and irritate the soft tissues of your mouth, Invisalign aligners are smooth and comfortable. The movement of your teeth is so gentle and steady that you probably won’t even notice that it is happening.
Plus, you can always rely on your aligners to be hidden on your teeth during family pictures or your best friend’s wedding, so you’ll never feel socially uncomfortable, either!
A: For the most part, yes! A common complaint for patients wearing metal braces is the food they have to give up! Wearing aligners is just completely different. You’ll never have your aligners in while you are eating, so you don’t have to worry about things getting caught in your
wires or breaking your brackets.
You will need to rinse (and brush if you are able) your teeth before putting your aligner back in after you’ve eaten. This will prevent food from getting stuck under the aligner and causing discomfort. As always, a diet that is low in sugar and difficulttochew foods is a plus!
A: Yes! Invisalign aligners are very thin, clear plastic. They are made to fit every nook of your teeth perfectly, so there is no need to worry that they will show. We have patients who have experienced major life events without anyone noticing their orthodontic work. What you will find very quickly is that the people around you simply don’t know what to look for to identify your aligners. They’ll never know they are there unless you share the information.
Above all, you should expect a lot of happiness from this experience. Your daytoday processes will change very slightly to include care of the aligners (brushing and rinsing while you brush your teeth) and removing your aligners before eating. About every two weeks, you will switch to the next aligner in your series. You’ll come see us once every six weeks to check on your smile’s progression.
When the process is complete (usually between 12 and 18 months), you will have the smile of your dreams. The alignment will give you a boost of confidence, but it will also help you keep a healthier smile!
