How Does Invisalign® Work?
Invisalign® treatment uses custom-made clear aligner trays engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time to slightly shift your teeth, moving them the direction they need to move in order to give you the smile you deserve.
It is recommended that you wear the aligners for 20-22 hours per day.
Then, you change out aligners (typically every week), following the custom treatment plan that is mapped out by Dr. Finley or Dr. Runyan.
How Comfortable is Invisalign®?
One of the best things about Invisalign® is their comfort, so you should be able to wear the aligners for the recommended 20-22 hours per day.
Invisalign® aligner trays are smooth and comfortable to wear. They are also removable, which means you will continue doing all the things you would normally do - eating, brushing, flossing.
And if you have a special occasion, you can take your aligners out to attend and then put them back in when you are done!
How Do I Maintain Invisalign®?
Since the aligners are easy to remove, you continue to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would. Then, you clean your aligners with the Invisalign® cleaning kit or simply brush and rinse them in lukewarm water.
You also remove the aligners each time you eat, which means you don't have to restrict the foods you eat or worry about food getting stuck in your wires and brackets.
For those active in contact sports, Invisalign® aligners are also perfect since you don't have to worry about the sharp wires or brackets cutting your mouth! If you wear a protective mouthguard, you can remove the aligners and use your mouthguard.
