Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth. It is an alternative to traditional metal braces.

Invisalign works by wearing a series of custom-made aligners that apply gentle pressure to move teeth into their desired positions. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks before moving on to the next set.

The duration of Invisalign treatment varies based on individual needs but typically ranges from 12 to 18 months. Your dentist will provide a personalized treatment plan during your consultation.

Yes, Invisalign aligners are designed to be comfortable. They are made from smooth, BPA-free plastic and are custom-fitted to your teeth, reducing the risk of irritation.

You should remove your Invisalign aligners before eating or drinking anything other than water. This helps prevent staining and damage to the aligners. After eating, brush your teeth before reinserting the aligners.

Regular check-ups are essential during Invisalign treatment, typically every 6 to 8 weeks. These visits allow your dentist to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
