Is it really invisible?

The name Invisalign refers to the invisibility of the treatment, but that’s not convincing enough for everyone. The good news is that Invisalign lives up to its reputation. The aligners that you use to adjust the positioning of your teeth are as invisible as they could be, so even your friends and family might not realize that you’re going through orthodontic treatment. This makes this treatment excellent for working professionals as well as anyone who wants to boost their confidence and enjoy better oral health.

How does the process work?

In addition to how discreet Invisalign is, it’s also more comfortable compared to other orthodontic treatments. The Invisalign process uses a series of aligners. These are clear plastic trays that represent different stages in your treatment process, and they gradually shift your teeth into place. The first set of aligners you get from the dental clinic will be close to the original positioning of your teeth, but when you finish your last set, you’ll have a whole new smile.

Do I need to clean my aligners?

Invisalign repositions your teeth, but it’s still your responsibility to take care of your oral health otherwise. This includes cleaning your aligners. Contaminants like food particles and bacteria can get caught in your trays, which means your teeth will continue to be exposed to them. Talk to your dental clinic about an Invisalign kit and clean your aligners regularly.
