What You Should Know about Getting Invisalign®

Invisalign® clear aligners are a great alternative to braces! Their clear plastic design and removability make them an excellent option for patients who don’t want to commit to the glue and wires that come with braces.

There are a few things to keep in mind when trying to decide if Invisalign® is right for you:

  1. You and your doctor should determine if Invisalign® clear aligner treatment is right for you!
  1. You need to wear your Invisalign® clear aligners for at least 22 hours each day.
  1. While you have more meal options than traditional braces, there are still some foods and drinks to avoid.

Dr. Sievers, Dr. Van Vooren and Dr. Darling can use Invisalign® clear aligners on most patients! The Embrace Orthodontics team will work with you to determine if Invisalign® is right for you, your treatment plan and what you can expect when you’re done.

Wear Your Invisalign® Clear Aligners! 

Yes, everyone loves that Invisalign® clear aligners are fully removable. You can eat what you want, when you want by simply taking them out. However, to keep your orthodontic treatment on track, you must wear them consistently. 

Our doctors recommend thatInvisalign® clear aligners be worn for an average of 22 hours daily to do their job efficiently and with the best results. You must wear your Invisalign® clear aligners to bed, have them in at school and at the office. While clear aligners make orthodontic treatment flexible, you still have to put in the time to get the smile you’ve always dreamed of having. 

Avoid Hot Liquids!

Be aware of what you are drinking. You should keep your Invisalign® clear aligners in as much as possible; however, take them out when drinking hot liquids! While soothing and delicious, beverages like tea and coffee have been known to warp the treatment’s plastic material.
