Do you have questions about Invisalign®? If so, our dentists, Dr. Rebecca Pitner and Dr. William Findlay are happy to help you find the answers. The more you know about Invisalign, the better chance you have of knowing if it’s the right treatment for you. Also, the more you know, the better chance you have of having a more successful orthodontic treatment. So, our orthodontist is happy to help you by providing the answers to the following commonly asked questions about Invisalign:

Question No. 1: How does Invisalign work?

Answer: Invisalign is a treatment that involves the use of aligning trays. The trays are shaped like your smile, but they have slight changes. The impressions of the teeth will be made to shift your teeth little bits at a time. When you wear the tray, the form of the appliance will push the teeth into position. Our orthodontist will create news trays for you when necessary.

Question No. 2: How can I care for my Invisalign trays?

Answer: You can use the Invisalign cleaning kit and instructions to clean your aligning trays. You can also use mild denture cleaning solution to remove bacteria and plaque.

Question No. 3: Are there limitations when aligning my smile with Invisalign?

Answer: Because the aligning trays are removable, there are little to no limitations during treatment. You should be able to eat, drink, brush, floss and do other regular tasks with ease, as long as you remove the appliance beforehand.
