What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is one of the most popular orthodontic treatment systems available, especially among adults seeking a discreet alternative to conventional metal braces.

Being much more discreet than metal braces, the Invisalign® method uses a series of clear aligners that apply continual pressure to the teeth, causing them to move into a straighter position – just like traditional braces would.

The only difference is that they’re practically invisible!

Aside from looking much better, Invisalign® braces are also much more convenient, comfortable and hygienic.

There’s no need for constant orthodontic visits to check up on progress, which means less time off work.

You can take them out to eat and clean your teeth as normal. And, because Invisalign® braces are made-to-measure, there are typically fewer mouth and gum problems you’ll have to deal with – including painful cuts and dreaded salt washes.

The Main Benefits of Invisalign®

Virtually invisible – One of the main benefits of clear aligners is how they are virtually invisible when you wear them.

Comfort – Clear aligners are made of smooth, flexible plastic that fit snugly to your teeth. There are no rough brackets or sharp wires that cause pain.

Convenience – You can remove them when you eat, brush/floss your teeth, play a musical instrument, or give an important presentation. This means it has very little impact on your day to day life.

What is better clear braces or Invisalign?

Whether clear braces or Invisalign are better for you depends on your individual needs and preferences. Clear braces are less noticeable than traditional braces, but they may be more difficult to maintain and require more frequent adjustments. Invisalign is more discreet and comfortable, but it may be more expensive and not as effective for severe orthodontic problems.

Are Invisalign braces effective?

Yes, Invisalign braces are an effective treatment option for a variety of orthodontic problems, including mild to moderate crowding,spacing, and misalignment. They are more comfortable and discreet than traditional braces, and they can be a good choice for people who want a more private treatment option.

Can you buy Invisalign without a dentist?

No, you cannot buy Invisalign directly from AlignTechnology, the manufacturer of Invisalign aligners. Invisalign is a prescription-only medical device, and only licensed dentists and orthodontists can prescribe it. This is because Invisalign can be used to correct a variety of orthodontic problems, and it is important that a qualified dental professional assess your teeth and gums to determine if Invisalign is right for you. They can also create a custom treatment plan for you and monitor your progress throughout your treatment.

While there are some companies that offer clear aligners that can be purchased without a prescription, these aligners are not the same as Invisalign. They are often made from inferior materials and may not be as effective at correcting orthodontic problems. Additionally, they may not be as comfortable or durable as Invisalign.

If you are considering Invisalign or another type of clear aligner, it is important to see a licensed dentist or orthodontist, such as ourselves, to get a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

Is Invisalign Painful?

Invisalign is not typically painful, but some people may experience mild discomfort, especially in the first few days of wearing a new set of aligners. This is because your teeth are being gently moved, and you may feel a slight pressure or tightness. However, this discomfort usually subsides within a few days.

It is important to wear your aligners as directed by your dentist or orthodontist. If you take them out too often or if you chew on hard objects, it can make your teeth more sensitive, and you may experience more discomfort.

If you are experiencing any pain or discomfort from your Invisalign treatment, you should get in contact with us so that we can adjust your treatment plan or recommend over-the-counter pain relievers.

Does Invisalign make you talk funny?

Invisalign may cause a slight lisp or change in speech pattern during the first few days of wearing a new set of aligners. This is because your teeth are being gently moved, and the aligners may slightly alter the way your tongue moves. However, this discomfort usually subsides within a few days as your tongue becomes accustomed to the new position of your teeth. If you continue to experience a speech impediment after a few days, you should consult with us. We may be able to adjust your treatment plan or recommend exercises to help you retrain your tongue.

Do you sleep with Invisalign?

Yes,you should wear your Invisalign aligners for 20–22 hours per day, including during sleep. This is because the aligners continuously apply gentle pressure to your teeth, which is essential for moving them into the desired position. If you remove your aligners for an extended period of time, such as during sleep, your teeth may shift back to their original position, and your treatment will not be as effective.

Here are some tips for sleeping with Invisalign:

  • Clean your aligners before bed: Brush your aligners with a soft-bristled toothbrush and Invisalign-approved cleaning solution.
  • Store your aligners properly: Place your aligners in their case when you are not wearing them. This will help to keep them clean and protected from damage.
  • Use a whitening mouth guard: A whitening mouth guard can help protect your aligners from stains and discolouration.
  • Come and see us for regular checkups: Your dentist or orthodontist will monitor your progress and adjust your treatment plan as needed.

By following these tips, you can ensure that you are getting the most out of your Invisalign treatment and that you are sleeping comfortably with your aligners in.
