Invisalign® is an advanced and invisible braces alternative. If you are considering Invisalign®, you may have some questions regarding the treatment. These Invisalign® FAQs can help you prepare and familiarize yourself with the treatment. The Doral & Miami Centers for Orthodontics offer Invisalign® to men and women living in Miami Springs, Kendall, Hialeah, and the neighboring areas of Florida.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is a braces alternative that uses clear, removable aligners to straighten the teeth and improve the appearance of your smile. This offers patients a more convenient and comfortable alternative to braces that doesn’t interfere with your lifestyle. By wearing a series of clear aligners that gradually move the teeth, patients can achieve a straight, healthy smile.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign®?
Invisalign® offers many benefits over traditional braces, including a comfortable treatment process. Without the use of metal brackets or wires, you will have a simpler treatment that won’t irritate your mouth. Since the Invisalign® aligners are removable, they do not interfere with your normal activities and habits. Patients also enjoy the appearance of Invisalign®, as the aligners are virtually invisible.
What is the Invisalign® Treatment Like?
The Invisalign® treatment involves the daily use of clear, removable aligners. These can be removed when eating, brushing, and flossing, but should be worn at all other times. You will have regular appointments with your orthodontist to swap out your aligners for new ones. Each set of aligners helps to move your teeth closer to their ideal position.
How Much Does Invisalign® Cost?
The cost of Invisalign will vary by patient depending on the length of treatment and the initial positioning of the teeth. To learn more, visit our cost of Invisalign page.
How Will Invisalign® Affect My Lifestyle?
Many patients love Invisalign® because it is a convenient orthodontic treatment that doesn’t significantly change their lifestyle. With Invisalign®, you will be able to eat all of the foods you normally do. You will still be able to brush and floss as usual. You will even be able to play sports and perform other physical activities without a problem. To get the best results from Invisalign®, you will have to wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours a day.
How Do I Care for My Invisalign® Aligners?
Since Invisalign® aligners are removable, it is very easy to care for them. We recommend that patients remove their aligners and brush them with toothpaste once a day. You should also remove your aligners before eating to protect them from damage.
