Will Invisalign treatment fit my lifestyle?

Time to eat? No problem. Take out your aligners to eat or drink whenever you want.
You can also remove your Invisalign aligners to brush and floss regularly, and keep your teeth and gums healthy.

You can also occasionally remove your Invisalign aligners to enjoy a special night out.
There’s no need to change a thing. Continue your day-to-day activities while continuing to straighten your teeth.

What is the Invisalign system?

The Invisalign system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always wanted without interruptions to your lifestyle. Invisalign treatment uses advanced 3D computer imaging technology to depict your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position.

A series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth to shift them little by little until the final position has been reached. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series until the treatment is completed.

Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by your doctor based on your specific needs and your body’s response to treatment.

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign aligners are clear, which makes Invisalign treatment a seamless fit into your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others. Invisalign aligners are also removable. Unlike braces, you have the ability to eat and drink what you want during treatment simply by removing the aligners when you eat. You will also be able to remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene.

Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign treatment does not use metal brackets or wires that could cause irritation to your mouth.

Lastly, Invisalign treatment technology allows you to preview your virtual results and treatment plan before you even start your treatment. Seeing your final results will motivate you to comply with your treatment in order to achieve the results as fast as possible.

How many patients are in Invisalign treatment?

More than 5,000,000 patients worldwide have been treated with Invisalign aligners. The number of Invisalign smiles grows on a daily basis.
