Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign Aligners

Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign aligners are clear, plastic aligners that are custom-made for you. They are created based on digital impressions of your teeth and are designed to gradually straighten your teeth over time. If you are planning to get Invisalign treatment, here is what you need to know about the aligners. 

  • What Are The Benefits of Invisalign Aligners?
  1. Invisalign aligners are removable, which makes them easier to clean, and more comfortable compared to traditional metal braces.
  2. Invisalign aligners are clear and barely noticeable when worn. This allows you to maintain a professional appearance while straightening your teeth.
  3. Invisalign aligners are custom-made based on digital impressions of your teeth. This means that Invisalign aligners are designed to fit your teeth and mouth as perfectly as possible.
  4. Since Invisalign aligners do not contain any wires or metals, they are comfortable when worn. 
  • How are Invisalign aligners made?

Invisalign aligners are custom-made from 3D images of your teeth and jaws. These images help the Invisalign technicians create a series of aligner trays that gradually shift your teeth.

Each set of aligners is worn for two weeks before progressing to the next set. Your teeth move gradually until they have straightened to their final position.

  • How are Invisalign aligners different from traditional metal braces?

Invisalign aligners are made of lightweight plastic and are custom-made to fit your teeth. Invisalign aligners are removable, unlike traditional metal braces, so patients can eat their favorite foods during treatment. Invisalign aligners are also clear and virtually invisible, so you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.

  • Is Invisalign painful?

No. Invisalign aligners are made from smooth plastic. They are custom-made to fit your teeth. During treatment, you will wear each set of aligners for two weeks at a time. They are designed to be removed while you eat and brush your teeth.

  • How long does Invisalign take to work?

Treatment with Invisalign typically takes around 12-18 months. The exact amount of time depends on each patient’s specific treatment needs. Invisalign aligners are changed out every two weeks, which moves your teeth in small steps to the desired position. Every two weeks, a patient also visits their dentist to have a checkup and to receive their next set of aligners.

  • How often do I have to wear the aligners?

The recommended amount of time to wear your aligners is 22 hours per day. However, you can remove them anytime to eat and brush your teeth. It’s important to wear the aligners as much as possible.

  • How are Invisalign aligners kept clean?

Because they are clear, Invisalign aligners are very easy to keep clean. Invisalign aligners can be brushed and rinsed with lukewarm water. This removes any bacteria or other residue that has built up. Invisalign aligners can also be soaked in a special cleaning solution.

  • How much does Invisalign cost?

Invisalign aligners cost between $3,500 and $8,000. The good news is that many insurance plans cover Invisalign treatment. We can help you find out if you’re eligible for Invisalign through your insurance provider.
