Get Your Invisalign® Questions Answered
Would you love to straighten your teeth but are not totally convinced about starting orthodontic care at this time in your life?

Thanks to the advancements in technology and dental practices, we are able to offer an orthodontic option that is not only popular, but allows patients to straighten their teeth without many of the restrictions found with other options — Invisalign®. While you may have already heard of Invisalign, you probably have questions regarding treatment. Read on to learn some of the most popular questions and answers about Invisalign.
What is Invisalign?
The most common question is always to explain a little more about the treatment. Invisalign is the most well-known brand of clear aligners. The process involves using a series of clear aligner trays to transition the teeth into the desired placement.
Are There Food Restrictions?
Unlike traditional metal braces, clear aligners can be removed from your mouth to eat and drink. This eliminates any restrictions, allowing patients to enjoy all of their favorite foods.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
As with any orthodontic treatment, the length of treatment time varies for each patient. One of the benefits of Invisalign is that you can see digital renderings of your teeth for each tray. You will know the number of trays needed to get your desired results before beginning treatment. Of course, if trays are not worn as recommended, treatment time will be extended.
Is It Easy to Care For Your Teeth and the Trays?
Since the trays are removable, you can easily brush and care for your teeth the same way as always. We will review the proper way to clean your trays, but it is important to note that if you do not follow our guidelines, the trays can become damaged, lengthening your treatment time.
