When deciding how to reposition your teeth, Invisalign may be a great option for you. However, it is very different than traditional braces. When people come in for our free consultations, they have a lot of questions about Invisalign. Below are just a few of the questions that are commonly asked about Invisalign.

1. What are the main benefits of Invisalign?
One of the biggest benefits is the aligners are clear so it is not as obvious to others that you are correcting your smile. Also, unlike traditional braces, you can eat and drink foods that you enjoy normally as long as you remove the aligner while eating, and floss and brush after. With the lack of metal, it will not irritate your mouth and you will not have to come in to see your orthodontist as often.

2. How does it work exactly?
Invisalign uses 3D scanning to determine a complete treatment plan. After a treatment plan is discussed, a custom, clear aligner is created for you to achieve the target end position. Every few weeks, a new aligner is given to you to continue to gradually shift your teeth to the desired position.

3. Is invisalign painful?
Invisalign is able to reposition your teeth without the pain associated with having metal in your mouth. However, there is a possibility that you will feel discomfort the first few days of the new aligners. If you feel this discomfort, it means that your teeth are indeed shifting to the final position. Speak to a member of our team about managing this discomfort without medication using AcceleDent.

4. Are there certain people that Invisalign isn’t suitable for?
Invisalign is geared towards most teens and adults. The only people that Invisalign is not suitable for are those who still have baby teeth or second molars that have not grown in fully. If you believe that you are a good candidate for Invisalign, contact Innovative Orthodontic Centers to schedule your free consultation.

5. Can Invisalign help people who used to wear braces but their teeth have shifted?
Many of the over 1 million users of Invisalign have worn braces in the past. Invisalign is a great option for those individuals who want to reposition their teeth without having the embarrassment of having traditional wired braces.
