What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is the invisible new way to straighten teeth without braces. Invisalign, with the aid of your Invisalign dentist, uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth, without metal or wires. It combines 21st century technology and revolutionary manufacturing to customise a treatment for each individual patient.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign uses 3-D computer imaging technology to depict the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position from which a series of custom-made “aligners” are produced. Each aligner moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about two weeks, then replaced by the next in the series until the final position is achieved.
How long will the treatment take?
The length of treatment depends on the severity of your case and can only be determined by your doctor; however, the average case takes about 12 months for adults. The length of time necessary for a teen patient may vary and can be determined by your doctor.
Are there foods I should avoid while using Invisalign aligners?
No. Since the aligners can be removed, you have much more flexibility in what you can eat or drink. The two main things that should be avoided while wearing Invisalign aligners is chewing gum and smoking, as it can discolor the aligners.
Is Invisalign painful?
Invisalign is able to straighten your teeth without the pain associated with the wires used in braces. However, it’s possible for you to experience a temporary discomfort or pressure during the first few days of each aligner. This is okay and normal – it just means the treatment is working and your teeth are getting closer to their final destination.
How much does it cost?
Like most medical treatments, the cost of Invisalign can vary depending on several factors, including how difficult your case is, how long your treatment is, where you live, and your insurance coverage.
