Straightening Teeth Without Cumbersome Brackets and Wires

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign is a treatment system that uses clear, smooth plastic aligners that are customized especially for your mouth. Each tray is worn for about two weeks and will strategically and gently shift any crowded or misaligned teeth into their ideal positions. As you progress through your custom-tailored treatment, you’ll attend brief checkups with Dr. Patel every four to six weeks to make sure you’re on the right track and to pick up your next series of aligners.

In order to achieve the results you’re looking for and to stay on track with your timeline, you’ll need to wear your trays for at least 22 hours everyday, only taking them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As long as you follow Dr. Patel’s instructions, most patients enjoy a treatment that lasts between eight and 14 months.

Invisalign FAQ’s

Are you considering Invisalign clear aligners? If you’ve been wanting to straighten your teeth, but you don’t want to deal with the hassle and appearance of traditional braces, this is a great option for you! However, because it’s a newer type of orthodontics, many patients have questions about the process. Thankfully, Dr. Nirav Patel has included the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about Invisalign. Keep reading to satisfy your curiosity!

How Should I Clean My Aligners?

Keeping your Invisalign aligners clean and maintained will help ensure that your treatment goes smoothly. When food debris isn’t cleaned away, it can permanently stain your aligners, affecting their beautiful clear appearance. However, you can use a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste to keep your aligners beautiful. Plus, Invisalign also sells their own cleaning system. No matter which way you decide to maintain them, be sure never to use hot water because it can permanently warp Invisalign’s plastic. Additionally, brush and rinse out your mouth after each time you eat to avoid trapping bits of food in between your smile and the aligners.

What Happens if I Lose or Break an Aligner?

If you lose or break an aligner, don’t panic! Call our office right away to get a replacement and we will give you instructions on your next steps. Dr. Patel may even recommend that you wear the previous aligners in the series until you can get a replacement. To avoid damaging your aligners, lay towels down on your sink and floor. That way, if you drop them, they’ll have a safe place to break their fall. It’s also a good idea to always keep your Invisalign case on you so you can quickly protect your aligners when you take them out.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

If you’re considering this treatment, you may be wondering how much Invisalign is going to cost. There are many variables that factor into the price of your treatment, including severity of your misalignment and commitment to your treatment process. The best way to get a precise estimate is to visit our office for a consultation. Dr. Patel will carefully examine your smile and discuss the goals of your treatment before developing a personalized plan. This will include information like treatment time and price.

How Will Invisalign Affect My Life?

One of the main benefits of Invisalign is that it doesn’t require a dramatic lifestyle change. Invisalign is designed to be discreet, comfortable, and completely removable, allowing you to seamlessly navigate through your social and professional lives. This also means that you can enjoy all of your favorite foods without worrying about damaging your orthodontics.

What Happens When I Complete Treatment?

After your treatment is complete, Dr. Patel will typically recommend that you wear a retainer. This will maintain the beautifully straight smile you achieved with Invisalign, protecting your investment as well. Depending on your smile, you will eventually only have to wear your retainer at night, and then even just some nights of the week.
