How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses several sets of trays to gradually and discreetly move teeth into their ideal alignment. They’re individually crafted from an FDA-approved plastic based on the shape of your dental structure for maximum effectiveness and comfort. During your initial consultation, our team will walk you through your treatment process and take impressions of your teeth to send to the Invisalign laboratory.

Once we receive your aligners, we’ll call you in to give them to you and show you how to use and maintain them. Every six to eight weeks, you’ll need to come in for a quick progress check and so we can provide you with your next sets of aligners. Towards the end of your treatment, we’ll also speak to you about retainer options.

Invisalign FAQs

Now you know all about how Invisalign works, who is a candidate for this orthodontic treatment, and the benefits involved. If you’re ready to schedule your initial consultation, then don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team. If you’d prefer to do a bit more research, we’re here to help! Below, you will find the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions we hear from patients.

Do Invisalign Trays Make It Hard to Speak?

To form words, your tongue makes a series of distinct movements against the back of your teeth. Naturally, you may experience a bit of a learning curve when you initially begin wearing your aligners. However, many patients don’t report having a lisp at the beginning of their treatment! Those that do can read aloud and practice the more difficult words repeatedly to expedite the process.

How Should I Care for My Invisalign Aligners?

Caring for your aligners is essential to having discreet, effective trays throughout your treatment. Therefore, make sure to:

  • Clean your trays daily with the right products (not toothpaste or denture cleaner).
  • Use lukewarm (never hot) water when rinsing them.
  • Brush your trays after each meal.
  • Don’t eat or drink with your trays in (with the exception of water).
  • Store your trays in a protective case when they aren’t in your mouth to prevent them from accidentally breaking or being misplaced.

What Should I Do If I Lose My Invisalign Trays?

If you lose your aligners, do your best not to panic. Calmly retrace your steps, paying special attention to the small nooks and crevices they could’ve fallen into. Once you’ve confirmed they are missing, get in touch with our team right away. Under no circumstance should you attempt to keep it a secret by moving onto the next set of trays on your own. This can significantly hinder your treatment timeline, so make sure to always speak directly with us before doing so.

Does Invisalign Hurt?

As with any orthodontic treatment, it’s natural to experience some soreness. After all, that means your treatment is working! Luckily, you can combat this discomfort by starting your new set of trays right before you go to bed. That way, you can sleep through most of the adjustment period. By morning, your teeth should be used to the new aligners.

How Can I Be Sure That Invisalign Will Work?

When investing your time and money into Invisalign, you want to know you’ll love the end result. Fortunately, their clear aligners have been around for over two decades. In that time, over 8 million patients have left crooked, crowded, and spaced-out teeth in the past with their clear aligners. Plus, Invisalign has an impressive 96% satisfaction rating, with 9 out of 10 people saying they would recommend it to their loved ones!
