Q: What is Invisalign, and how does it work?
A: Invisalign consists of a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. Each set of aligners is custom-made to fit your mouth and designed to move your teeth incrementally to their final desired positions.
Q: Is Invisalign suitable for me?
A: Invisalign is often ideal for correcting mild to moderate misalignments. However, it may not be suitable for more complex cases. A consultation with our Invisalign specialist, Dr. Redmond, will help determine if Invisalign is the right option for you.
Q: How long does Invisalign treatment take?
A: Typically, Invisalign treatment takes anywhere from 6 to 18 months. The exact duration varies based on individual needs and the complexity of the alignment issues.
Q: Can I eat and drink with Invisalign aligners?
A: Invisalign aligners should be removed while eating and drinking anything other than water. This ensures that they do not become stained or damaged.
Q: How often do I need to wear the aligners?
A: Invisalign aligners should be worn for 20-22 hours a day, only removing them for eating, brushing, and flossing.
Q: Will Invisalign affect my speech?
A: Some patients experience a temporary change in speech when they first wear their aligners, but this typically resolves as they become accustomed to wearing them.
Q: How do I clean and care for my Invisalign aligners?
A: Aligners should be cleaned daily using a soft toothbrush and mild soap or Invisalign cleaning solutions. It’s important to avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasives that could damage the aligners.
Q: Does insurance cover Invisalign treatment?
A: Many dental insurance plans cover a portion of Invisalign treatment. We recommend checking with your insurance provider or contacting our office for assistance in understanding your specific coverage.
Q: What happens after my Invisalign treatment is complete?
A: After completing Invisalign treatment, you will likely need to wear a retainer to maintain your new alignment. Dr. Redmond will provide specific instructions regarding your post-treatment care.
