Are you interested in Invisalign but want to know more? Read answers to these commonly asked questions about Invisalign treatment:
What are the differences between metal braces and Invisalign?
Traditional metal braces need to be tightened at frequent dental visits. Sometimes, the metal wires that keep the brackets tightened can irritate and poke at the gums. Additionally, metal braces cannot be removed, so patients will need to learn how to brush and floss around their metal wires and brackets. Invisalign benefits patients who have mild or moderate orthodontic issues. Because Invisalign aligners are removable, patients can eat without any restrictions and thoroughly brush and floss their teeth and gums.
How do I care for my Invisalign aligners?
To keep your clear aligners fresh, clean them before placing them back in your mouth. Do not drink or eat anything other than water with your aligners in place. Eating or drinking with the aligners on can stain or damage them. When your aligners are not in use, place them in their case for protection.
When will I complete my Invisalign treatment?
Every patient has different orthodontic needs. This means that their treatment will depend on the severity of their crooked or misaligned teeth. Additionally, patients who wear their aligners for 22 hours a day and care for each new set of aligners will stay on track with their treatment. Typically, patients complete Invisalign within 12 or 18 months.
