Are clear braces right for you?

Self-confidence is one of the primary motivators for investing in Invisalign treatments. If you notice that you are careful about how you smile because you don’t want other people to see your teeth, you might be a good candidate for Invisalign.

Invisalign is effective for minor or moderate misalignments. However, severe orthodontic issues might require metal braces that use wires and brackets. If you are considering this treatment, then the best thing you can do is schedule a consultation with our Invisalign dentist to learn more about your options.

How Invisible Braces Work

The best part about Invisalign is that you are wearing clear aligners, making it less noticeable than bulky metal braces. These custom-designed trays are made with plastic that slides over the outside of your teeth. You follow a specific order, changing the trays every two or three weeks based on the dentist’s recommendation.

One of the reasons patients prefer Invisalign is because of the option to remove the aligners for eating. So, you don’t have any dietary restrictions during the treatment process. Also, the clear aligners can be worn throughout the day without affecting your social or work activities.


Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign’s Clear Aligners

  • How often do I need to wear Invisalign invisible aligners?

The recommendation is to have the aligners in your mouth for 22 hours a day. You should sleep in them. Also, replace the aligners immediately after eating. If you don’t wear the aligners throughout the day, it can delay your treatment timeline.


  • Is Invisalign expensive?

The cost of Invisalign is comparable to traditional braces. However, the price varies depending on the severity of your misalignment and how long the aligners need to be worn to achieve the desired results.


  • Is it easy to talk while wearing Invisalign?

Yes, these trays are designed with clear plastic, helping you maintain the highest level of comfort at all times. There might be a minor adjustment period in the first few days. Most patients find Invisalign to be much more comfortable compared to traditional braces.
