Frequently Asked Questions?
What is the treatment process of Invisalign?
The Invisalign treatment process starts with a consultation with a dentist in Fall River. Our dentist will examine your smile and create a dental treatment plan that shows the steps involved in transforming your smile.
Once you approve the plan, your unique aligners will be made. Each set of aligners will have to be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day. Your doctor may direct you to change to a different set every 1 to 2 weeks. Each aligner set will gradually shift your teeth into place, as per the treatment plan, until you get your desired results.
Why choose Invisalign over traditional metal braces?
Invisalign has many benefits over traditional metal braces. While they both straighten your teeth, Invisalign aligners offer more benefits. With Invisalign, you don’t have those metal brackets and wires in your mouth and also don’t have to worry about what you eat. If you are considering braces, Invisalign may be a more appealing option.
The clear, smooth aligners fit comfortably and are virtually invisible in the mouth. Invisalign is removable, so it’s easier to maintain healthy gums and teeth. Invisalign aligners are removable, so you don’t have to floss and brush around wires and brackets like metal braces.
How long is the treatment?
The length of treatment will vary depending on the alignment issues you have, but generally, for adults, Invisalign treatment can last for 12 to 18 months. The treatment for teenagers and pre-teens takes the same time as traditional braces, i.e., two to three years.
To find out the estimated treatment time, consult our experienced orthodontist.
What is the best way to care for the aligners?
These are some tips to care for your aligners-
- Rinse them after you take them out. You must rinse your aligners after you remove them from your mouth to prevent plaque and dry saliva. You don’t want to create an environment that encourages bacteria growth. To keep your aligners clean, you can use antibacterial soap.
- Soak your aligners every day. You can clean your Invisalign aligners by soaking them in a denture cleaner or Invisalign crystals. After they have soaked, brush your teeth with an extra toothbrush to remove any food particles or plaque. Rinse the aligners and place them back into your mouth.
- Before you put the aligners back in, make sure to brush your teeth and floss. You could end up with cavities if you place the aligners back into your mouth while food particles are still trapped between your teeth.
