How Does Invisalign Work?

During treatment with Invisalign, you will wear a customized set of clear plastic aligners . Invisalign aligners snap directly over your teeth, making them impossible to detect when you smile or speak. The aligners exert gentle pressure that slowly moves your teeth into their proper positions. You will switch to a new set of aligners every two weeks to continue your treatment until your teeth have reached their ideal alignment.

How Do I Care for My Aligners?

Whenever you eat or drink, remove your aligners to avoid damaging or staining them. Keep the aligners in a hard plastic case to avoid throwing them away. When you are done eating and drinking, brush your teeth and replace your aligners. You should also remove your aligners and clean them when you brush your teeth. Soak the aligners in an Invisalign cleaning solution or brush them gently with a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-whitening toothpaste. Rinse off the aligners and put them in once you are done brushing your teeth.

How Often Do I Need to Visit My Dentist?

During your Invisalign treatment, you will schedule a progress check with your dentist every four to six weeks. Your dentist will examine your tooth alignment and provide tips or other information about your treatment as needed. Most of these appointments are very short and can be scheduled at your convenience.
