Questions You Need To Ask Your Orthodontist About Invisalign

Article By Remarkable Smiles

With Invisalign, you can begin your journey to a more attractive smile, but before you make a final choice, you probably have a few things you want to ask your orthodontist. Let’s look at the two most important questions you need to ask.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Using a series of invisible aligners called Invisalign, your teeth can be moved over time into the proper position. Issues with your smile, like an overbite, a gummy smile, a crossbite, spaces, or crooked teeth, are frequently corrected using this procedure. When you start using Invisalign and change the aligners every two weeks, you could feel some discomfort, but this is typical and shouldn’t interfere with your daily activities. Invisalign can also be taken out prior to eating and placed back in afterward.

How Long Will You Use Your Invisalign Aligners?

It all depends on how conscientiously you use your aligners. The course of treatment could last 8 to 10 months. However, it will take much longer to complete your treatment if you don’t wear your aligners consistently for at least 22 hours each day or don’t change to a new pair every two weeks. The patient’s needs do affect how long the therapy lasts.
