Common Invisalign Questions

  1. How long does Invisalign treatment usually last?

This varies greatly from patient to patient, and your own Invisalign treatment time will depend on the severity of your orthodontic condition and how diligently you wear your aligners. However, most patients can expect Invisalign treatment to take between 6 and 18 months.

  1. Does Invisalign hurt?

Invisalign doesn't generally "hurt," but as with all orthodontic treatments, you'll likely experience some discomfort at the start of your treatment and when you switch to a new set of aligners. This usually fades within a few days, though, and it's easy to manage with over-the-counter pain relievers like Tylenol.

  1. How much will I have to wear the aligners?

Generally speaking, you should only remove your aligners to eat, drink, brush, and floss, but at a minimum you'll need to wear them 20-22 hours per day to be effective.

  1. Do I have to change my diet during treatment?

No! You'll remove your aligners to eat, so Invisalign has no effect on the foods you can and can't eat.

  1. Is Invisalign really invisible?

Well, invisible may be a strong word - no solid matter is truly invisible! However, Invisalign aligners are made from a transparent plastic material that blends in effortlessly with teeth. It's possible to spot them if you look closely, but most people will have no idea you're undergoing orthodontic treatment.

  1. How can I clean my Invisalign aligners?

To clean your aligners, simply brush them gently anytime you remove them or put them back in. You may also want to periodically soak your aligners in a glass of water with a denture cleaning tablet.
