How Invisalign works
The aligners are clear plastic trays that fit over your teeth. They are switched out every one to two weeks as your teeth slowly move to the predetermined position. These smooth aligners do not cause the irritation that metal wires and brackets can cause.
Eating with Your Aligners
Invisalign aligners are also removable. When it is time to eat, take them out and enjoy your meal or snack. When you’re finished, just put them back in. It’s that simple. You will not need to alter your diet to accommodate the aligners. Enjoy all your favorite foods while your teeth are being straightened.
Hygiene and Your Aligners
When it comes to oral hygiene, there is nothing special to do. Take the aligners out and brush and floss as usual. Rinse your aligners and put them back in. No special brushes or devices are used. What could be easier?
Invisalign aligners are practically invisible. Since the aligners are clear, they are not noticeable, but are effective in moving your teeth so you can easily straighten out your smile.
Duration of Treatment
Generally, when worn 22 hours a day during your treatment period, your smile could be totally transformed in as little as 12 months.
