8 FAQs About Invisalign from Our Monroe Dentist

Invisalign frequently asked questions

1. What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a set of virtually-invisible aligners that are designed to straighten out the teeth. They can correct several problems including underbites, overbites and gaps. They are designed to gradually shift your teeth into the right position.

2. How Does Invisalign Work?

Many people who want to know how to get straight teeth also want to know how clear aligners work. The aligners apply a small amount of force to the teeth, which help them shift into the position. The aligners are typically switched out every two weeks.

3. What are the Benefits of the Clear Aligners?

The aligners will not be noticed by another person. You can also remove the aligners. Because the aligners are removable, you can eat and drink whatever you like. You will also have an easier time cleaning your teeth because the aligners can be removed. Aligners are more comfortable to wear than traditional braces.

4. How Many Hours Per Day Will I Need to Wear my Aligners?

You will need to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day.

5. How Long Will I Need to Wear My Aligners?

The amount of time that it takes to straighten the teeth can vary. Most people will have to wear their braces for 12 to 18 months. Your cosmetic dentist will tell you how long you will have to wear your braces.

6. Will the Aligners Affect My Speech?

Most people will not notice any changes in their speech. However, it will take time for you to adjust your aligners.

7. Will I be Able to Smoke With the Aligners?

You should not smoke while you are wearing the aligners. Smoking can cause your aligners to stain.

8. How Often Will I Need to see my Cosmetic Dentist?

You will most likely need to see your dentist every eight to 12 weeks. This will ensure that your treatment is going as planned.
