Will Invisalign fit My Lifestyle?

Invisalign is so discreet, it really has no impact on your lifestyle. All you need to keep in mind is that you must remove the aligners before eating and drinking unless drinking through a straw and that you need to clean them and your teeth at least twice a day.

Can Invisalign Aligners Become Discolored?

If you use them properly, removing them when eating and drinking and cleaning them twice a day, they should not become discolored. Also, each aligner is only worn for about two weeks, so there is not enough time for them to become discolored even under non-ideal circumstances.

Are There Any Common Problems with Invisalign?

The most common problems come down to user error. Sometimes people forget to put the aligners back in, forget to change to the next in the series, or lose an aligner. However, the system itself is very reliable.

Can Anyone Use Invisalign?

No, Invisalign is not for everyone. Those with more severe abnormalities of the teeth must be treated with braces, headgear, or surgery rather than Invisalign. Also, younger patients are not always good candidates since Invisalign requires a deal of personal responsibility.

Is Invisalign Proven to Work?

Absolutely. More than three million people have been treated with Invisalign, and every day new patients start their treatment. The vast majority of these patients see great success with Invisalign treatment. Those who have issues find they are generally due to user error.

If you have other questions that need to be answered, we would be happy to answer them at your consultation.
