Key Things to Know Before Starting Invisalign

Many consumers considering Invisalign Treatment have questions about what to expect. This thorough video offers a walkthrough of the steps involved in putting Aligners in, taking them out, and caring for them during the course of treatment, supporting an informed decision about this convenient treatment option. These key things to know can also help consumers make the most informed decision:

  1. Invisalign® patients typically see results faster than patients who have traditional metal braces
  2. It’s common for teeth to feel loose during the course of treatment; they need to loosen slightly in order to move into position
  3. Some Invisalign® patients experience discomfort as their teeth move – much like they would with braces
  4. The aligners must be worn 22 hours a day, so all eating and drinking (including beverages normally sipped slowly) has to be done in two hours per day
  5. It’s important to brush and floss before putting Invisalign® Aligners in every single time in order to prevent tooth decay. Invisalign® patients keep a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss with them at all times
  6. It’s important to choose a provider who performs at least 10 cases per year, but providers who perform 50 or more cases per year are ideal if available
