Most Asked Questions About Invisalign

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a series of clear, removable aligners that are designed to gradually straighten crooked teeth. Invisalign is an ideal treatment option for teen and adults with mild to moderate orthodontic concerns. The aligners are custom designed to fit comfortably over the teeth and reduce irritation to the soft tissue areas in the mouth.

What problems can Invisalign correct?

Ideally, Invisalign can address some of the same dental concerns as traditional metal braces. Not only can Invisalign straighten crooked teeth, but it can also improve your overall oral health. Patients with straighter teeth are less inclined to develop gum disease, tooth, decay, and TMJ related issues.

Is Invisalign painful?

Invisalign is not considered a painful treatment. Some patients may experience a feeling of pressure or soreness immediately after they switch their aligners. Patients may need to adjust to the feeling of wearing their aligners.

How many hours a day should I wear my aligners?

Most dentists recommend patients wear their aligners for 20-22 hours a day for an effective treatment. Patients are able to remove their aligners to eat, drink, and perform their daily oral hygiene routine.

How long does Invisalign treatment last?

The length of treatment depends on a few different factors. Your Claremont dentist will perform a full comprehensive exam to determine the appropriate length of your treatment. In most cases, Invisalign treatment can last anywhere from twelve to eighteen months.
