Does Invisalign hurt?
Invisalign is one of the most comfortable treatments that efficiently realigns your teeth. Some patients will feel slight pressure when they wear their first set of new aligners, but this discomfort will gradually diminish as your teeth begin to shift.
Is Invisalign covered by insurance?
Most dental insurance providers will cover the same amount of your Invisalign treatment as they do with braces. Typically it will be a percentage or dollar amount that they cover, and any remaining balance will be up to you to pay.
How do you clean and maintain your Invisalign trays?
When you receive your Invisalign trays, we will provide you with a cleaning solution that works best for your aligners. You can also gently brush them with a toothbrush and toothpaste in lukewarm water, but make sure it doesn’t get too hot so your aligners don’t deform.
Can I remove my braces and get Invisalign?
Yes, it’s possible. If you’re currently wearing braces and are curious about getting Invisalign, it’s best to schedule a consultation with us so we can explore your case.
Is Invisalign removable?
Yes, you can take out your Invisalign whenever you eat and need to clean them. Otherwise, you should be wearing your aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day.
How long does the Invisalign treatment take?
The length of your Invisalign treatment depends on multiple factors such as how complex your case is and how consistently you wear your aligners. An estimate of your treatment time can be determined at your consultation, but it may vary. Generally, Invisalign treatment is 12 to 18 months.
What can’t I drink and eat while wearing Invisalign?
With Invisalign, your diet isn’t restricted at all! Since you can remove them whenever you need to, you can eat and drink whatever you want.
Can you drink alcohol while wearing Invisalign?
To avoid staining, we generally suggest you don’t wear your aligners when drinking dark-colored alcoholic beverages. However, if it’s a clear liquid, it won’t drastically impact your Invisalign treatment. Just remember to brush them as soon as you can once you’re home.
Can you drink coffee while wearing Invisalign?
Never drink hot coffee or tea with your Invisalign trays in. These beverages can warp their appearance and cause staining.
