1. Aligners. Do they need protected? Is it difficult to talk? Do they stain?
The Invisalign trays need to be thin in order make it easy to talk and to not make it extremely obvious your wearing them. It rarely occurs, but if the aligners aren’t brushed or cleaned once per day, they can sometimes stain with coffee or red wine. Have no fear! We will give you cleaning techniques and cleaning crystals to keep those aligners fresh for a sparkling smile. What if an aligner does stain? You’re in luck, you get a new perfectly clean aligner every week. Don’t want to put your fingers in your mouth to remove the trays? Request to try a special tool that allows you to easily and discretely pop the aligner out without having to put your fingers in your mouth.
2. Do I need to get mounts on my teeth?
More than likely yes! Mounts are the engine that make Invisalign work. Mounts or “Invisalign attachments” are pressure points on the teeth. This allows our doctors have full control over the root movement of the tooth so that the teeth are put in a healthy position.
3. Do I really need to wear the trays all the time? Is Invisalign faster?
Invisalign looks easy, but Invisalign is still orthodontics! It is a lot less of a hassle for many of our patients when comparing to traditional braces. Fast results and a beautiful smile is achieved by keeping the trays in for 22 hours per day. Care and commitment results in a more efficient treatment time. Commercials conveniently tell you every smile is a quick fix. This may be true for you, but talk to our experts to see what it will take to get your smile looking perfect.
