Invisalign FAQ

Invisalign treatment offers an alternative treatment to typical braces. It allows you to adjust misaligned teeth without the worry of maintaining regular and non-removable braces.

Invisalign has several benefits over traditional methods:

  • Invisalign braces are invisible, so you can flaunt your smile without even letting anyone else notice the braces.
  • They are removable so it doesn’t interrupt normal oral hygiene routines.
  • Invisalign doesn’t put any restrictions on food habits so you are free to eat what you want.
  • The treatment duration is shorter compared to traditional braces although the traditional braces are preferred for complex teeth misalignment conditions.

Firstly schedule your complimentary consultation with our Invisalign dentists, who will then customize the treatment type to be done according to your smile and requirement. Then the aligners are created accordingly. An individual has to wear an aligner for 20-22 hours a day. Patients are required to change the set of aligners periodically which can vary from two to four weeks.

The cost is more or less similar to that of traditional braces. The cost may vary based on complexity and length of treatment. Longer the treatment, the more set of aligners you need to reach the end of treatment. Our treatment coordinators at Accu Dental can give you a no obligation quote along with the complimentary Invisalign consultation with our Invisalign dentist.

Some patients may experience minor discomfort for a few days at the beginning of every new stage of the treatment when they place a new set of aligners. The discomfort is completely normal because the aligner is applying pressure on various teeth to push them in a certain direction of alignment. This is a sign that the aligners are working.

As every orthodontic treatment takes some time to adjust in your mouth, Invisalign also takes a few days to adjust to your mouth. Many patients share their experience that they notice no changes while they speak. However, some may find a little difficulty for the first few days. As soon as you acclimate to your aligners, you will return to your normal speech once again.

It is effortless and easy to maintain your aligners. Just like you brush your teeth, brush your aligners with a toothbrush and toothpaste and rinse them well with luke-warm water. At Accu Dental, our dental experts will provide tips to take good care of your aligners.
