Life with Invisalign
Invisalign is a method the doctors may use to help you achieve your ideal result. Invisalign uses clear trays similar to whitening trays called “Aligners”. The Aligners should ideally be worn at least 21 hours a day for approximately 14 days.
Your treatment may consist of anywhere from a total of 5 all the way up to 50 aligners, depending on your case. Each aligner in the series moves your teeth a little bit closer to the desired final result.
Finally, the doctors will typically give you 4-5 Aligners at a time and see you every 6-10 weeks.
Perfect for a busy life style.
There are many advantages with Invisalign
In most Invisalign cases, the doctors will place what are called attachments on some of your teeth. Attachments are little ridges the doctors temporarily bond to your teeth that will help the aligners grip and more efficiently move them.
1. I live a very busy lifestyle, is Invisalign right for me?
The recommended time the aligners should be in your mouth is 21+ hours a day. However, if you have an important event, date or school function that limits the wear to less than 21 hours that day, don’t sweat! In the days before or the days after, just wear them more to make up for the lost time.
2. Does it hurt?
Invisalign uses very gentle forces that are perfectly programmed to cause the least amount of sensitivity.
3. Will people know I am wearing them?
I tell my patients that, unless someone is 12-18 inches away from their face, they will have no idea!
