Smile with confidence, choose Invisalign! Invisalign can help you achieve the smile you always wanted. But, how exactly does Invisalign work? Let’s find out:
How does Invisalign work?
The unique Invisalign aligners are specially created to firmly fit your teeth. At the start of your Invisalign journey, will virtually scan your teeth and mouth with our technology. This scanner allows Dr. R to see the current position of your teeth and help create an Invisalign plan for you.
After receiving your aligners, you will wear them for approximately 2 weeks before receiving a new set. Each set of aligners are made to shift your teeth into a straighter smile. Plus, these clear aligners are barely noticeable; no wires or brackets are needed! In order to get the best out of your Invisalign treatment, the aligners should be worn for about 22 hours a day. The best part is that you can easily remove them to eat, drink and clean your teeth…awesome!
How long will it take?
The length of an Invisalign treatment depends on each specific case. Some Invisalign cases can be completed in 5-7 months, whereas other cases may take up to a year.
What should you stay away from?
While wearing your Invisalign aligners, it is best to avoid chewing gum, eating (especially hard foods such as chips and candy) and drinking beverages that may discolor your teeth (wine and coffee). We also advise to avoid smoking while wearing your Invisalign aligners because it may also cause discoloration.
