Invisalign treatment is easy and convenient, and allows you to live your life without interruptions. Once you work with our cosmetic dentists to determine that Invisalign is the right option for you, we’ll take a quick, non-invasive scan of your mouth in order to create your custom aligners. Once your aligners are made, you’ll come back to Green Leaf Dental to try them on and make sure that they fit perfectly. You’ll leave your appointment and start your treatment and your journey to the smile of your dreams!
To keep your aligners clean and clear, rinse them regularly and brush them out gently twice each day. Take your aligners out when you eat and drink dark colored or sugary beverages, and put them back on as soon as possible. Keep aligners in their case when not worn to prevent damage. Your aligners will spend most of their time in your mouth, so maintaining good oral hygiene is a great way to keep your them clean, too. Following these instructions throughout your treatment will ensure the best results and your most confident smile.
Results are best if you keep aligners on from 20 to 22 hours per day. This allows patients enough time to get through their daily meals, but you should be prepared to wear them almost constantly. It's most imperative to wear them at night, since sleep is such a long stretch of time. Another best practice is to brush your teeth after your meals and before you put your aligners back in.
Each week, you'll change out your current aligners for your next set. And every four weeks, you'll see your Seattle dentists at Green Leaf Dental (virtually or in-office) to ensure you're progressing through the treatment. If you're wearing your aligners diligently, you'll stay on track with your treatment plan and achieve a perfectly aligned smile before you know it.
Efficient and noticeable shifting of your teeth is dependent on your compliance with the Invisalign treatment. For Invisalign to work, you’ll wear your aligners for 20-22 hours a day, only removing them to clean your teeth and eat. How soon you notice changes will also depend on the severity of your alignment issues.
You will receive new aligners every 2 weeks. These aligners exert gentle pressure on your teeth to gradually move them into the correct position. The aligners will feel the tightest when you receive a new pair because they are further pushing on your teeth to move them even further.
You may notice changes in your teeth and bite within 2-6 weeks, but this varies from person to person. Changes to minor crooked teeth may not be as noticeable as severe malocclusions. People also have different jaw structures, gum health, and genetics.
However, from the very beginning, we will be able to use your teeth impressions to digitally map out your entire Invisalign treatment from start to finish so you will know exactly what to expect, how we will achieve it, and what your teeth will look like when treatment has been completed. Most cases take between 12-18 months to complete, but others may take as little as 6 months or as long as a few years.
Yes, it’s possible to switch from metal braces to Invisalign! This depends on each case and we will have to assess your specific orthodontic needs during a consultation to determine if you are a good candidate. If you are currently wearing metal braces, you should discuss this with your orthodontist.
If you have a severe malocclusion, braces are still the most effective orthodontic treatment. You may need to continue wearing braces until this issue can be alleviated before making the switch. However, we may be able to shift your jaw into proper alignment with Invisalign attachments and elastics.
There are many reasons why patients may want to make the switch from braces to Invisalign, including:
During your Invisalign treatment, you are free to eat and drink whatever you’d like. However, you must always remember to remove your aligners before consuming any food or liquids other than water. Food particles can get trapped in your aligners and cause bacterial growth and tooth decay.
Food, coffee, and wine can also stain your aligners, and hot liquids can alter the mold of your aligners which will affect the amount of pressure they place on your teeth and hence your treatment.
When the aligners are off, you can enjoy a restriction-free diet. Just remember to take your aligners out before eating or consuming hot liquids. Rinse out your aligners when taking them out and placing them back in. Don’t forget to brush and floss before putting the aligners back on!
