Invisalign clear aligners were created over a decade ago. They have transformed orthodontics, improving the options to straighten teeth. Dr. Gutierrez is a Diamond Invisalign Provider. This showcases his knowledge and expertise in treating orthodontics with Invisalign treatment.
8 Facts About Invisalign Clear Aligners:
1) Aligners are removable and close to invisible.
Aligners are a clear plastic material. This means most people will never even know you’re wearing them! The ease of removing the clear aligners makes your orthodontic treatment more enjoyable.
2) Invisalign consists of a series of aligners.
Dr. G will instruct you on how often and when to change your aligners at home. Typically aligners are changed every 7-14 days. Invisalign aligners gradually straighten your teeth. Additionally, you may have attachments to help with efficient tooth movement.
3) Invisalign is affordable & effective.
Invisalign clear aligners will not disrupt your busy schedule. They won’t break your bank either! At KCC Orthodontics, we commit to offering comparable pricing. Invisalign is a great option for both adults and teens.
4) Aligners can be worn during sports.
You can wear your aligners when playing for sport or fun. Aligners may help protect teeth from impact as well.
5) New aligners may feel tight for up to 48 hours.
Initial tightness with the change of aligners is natural. This is a result of your teeth moving into the new position of the aligner. We recommend changing your Invisalign clear aligners at night to ease initial tightness.
6) Good oral hygiene is easier to maintain.
You will remove your Invisalign aligners to brush and floss teeth. This means that regular dental hygiene practices remain the same.
7) No personal sacrifices with Invisalign aligners.
You can continue to eat your favorite foods. That’s right! Go ahead and enjoy popcorn, fried chicken, skittles, and corn on the cob. Because Invisalign clear aligners are removable, these foods are still an option!
8) Treatment time varies.
Aligner count may vary from one Invisalign case to another. The aligner count varies based on your unique treatment plan. Additionally, we expect you to wear your aligners to each appointment. Appointments are vital with Invisalign clear aligners. You’ll only receive so many aligners at a time, receiving more at each appointment.
