Have you ever heard of the Invisalign clear aligner system? A practically invisible alternative to metal braces, these can help patients of all ages enjoy a more even and healthier smile. In today’s blog, we’re going to look at a few common questions we often receive regarding this unique orthodontics treatment option.
Common Questions About Invisalign
Question: Do I wear them every day?
Answer: Yes! In order to see optimal results in the time frame Dr. Calcagno discussed, then you should be wearing them daily between 20 and 23 hours a day. If you don’t wear them, then your teeth won’t be repositioned as they should.
Question: How long does the treatment last?
Answer: That depends on the extent and cause of your misalignment, as well as the patient’s age. Younger patients, with jaws still developing, may require longer treatment periods. On average, adults require about a year and teens may need up to 18 months.
Question: What changes to I need to make to my daily life?
Answer: Fewer than you would think! Since you can remove the aligners before meals, brushing and flossing is much easier. In addition, brushing and flossing is much simpler since you don’t have to work around metal orthodontics.
Question: Do you offer a free initial consultation?
Answer: We do! We offer a free initial consultation, during which we examine your smile to see if Invisalign is the best choice for improving your alignment. We will also use technology to show what your smile could look like following treatment and give you an idea of how long you would need to wear the aligners. If you’ve already seen another dentist, we can provide a complimentary second opinion as well. If you have any questions or concerns about Invisalign or improving your smile then please contact out office today.
