Some patients may experience a slight lisp when they first begin wearing their Invisalign aligners. However, this typically subsides within a few days as you get used to speaking with the aligners in place.
You will typically change your Invisalign aligners every two weeks. This allows your teeth to gradually shift into their desired position over time. However, your orthodontist may adjust your treatment plan based on your progress.
Invisalign offers several advantages over traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, which means that they are more discreet than traditional braces. Additionally, because the aligners are removable, there are no food restrictions, and you can brush and floss your teeth normally. Invisalign treatment is also typically faster than traditional braces, with an average treatment time of 12 to 18 months.
Yes. Because the aligners are removable, you can eat whatever you like. However, it's important to brush your teeth before reinserting your aligners to prevent food particles from getting trapped and causing decay.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are removable, meaning no food restrictions exist. However, it's important to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours per day to ensure the best results. You should also avoid smoking while undergoing Invisalign treatment.
Invisalign works by using a series of custom-made, clear aligners to gradually move your teeth into their desired position. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks before being replaced with the next set in the series. The aligners are designed to apply gentle pressure to your teeth, gradually shifting them into alignment.
Invisalign is designed to be a comfortable alternative to traditional braces. While some patients may experience mild discomfort or pressure when they first begin wearing their aligners or switch to a new set, this typically subsides within a few days.
The total cost of Invisalign treatment can vary depending on several factors, such as your insurance coverage and the complexity of your case. However, our practice offers flexible payment options, such as financing plans, to help make Invisalign treatment more affordable.
