Thinking About Invisalign?

January 4, 2022

The Invisalign system is the modern alternative to metal braces. The system involves a series of clear plastic aligners that gently shift teeth into the desired position. Every two weeks, you will receive a new aligner until the desired outcome is achieved. 

There are specific conditions that you should be aware of:

  • The aligners should be worn as directed by the dentist which usually means between 20 and 22 hours per day for maximum benefit.
  • Aligners must be cleaned daily which is easily done using a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste or a suitable liquid cleaner.
  • You might need a couple days getting used to the aligners, but it’s just a temporary situation. 

After Invisalign treatment is completed, it will be necessary to wear a permanent retainer to prevent the natural shifting of your teeth back to their original position. 

However, the permanent retainer is merely a thin wire attached to the rear of the front teeth and invisible to any observer.
