How does Invisalign® work?
The Invisalign® aligners are essentially made transparent, going virtually unnoticed to others. They consist of a thermoplastic material that is developed and tailored for your individual treatment plan. They look almost exactly like teeth whitening trays. Once your doctor has completed the development process, they will be applied. These aligners will help adjust your teeth in the correct sequence. You can expect to wear each set of Invisalign® aligners for two weeks before beginning the next set in your treatment plan.
How long do I need to wear my Invisalign® retainer each day?
20 – 22 hours a day by recommendation. You can of course remove your retainer during meals, brushing and flossing.
Will Invisalign® aligners affect my normal speech?
Not everyone will develop a speech impediment, however it is common to notice a slight lisp for a short period of time. You may have slight difficulty articulating etc. However, the lisp should gradually disappear after a few days.
