Orthodontic FAQ

Invisalign is a series of clear aligner trays that straightens teeth as a more comfortable and aesthetic alternative to traditional braces.

Invisalign pushes your teeth by applying gentle pressure to your teeth as it guides them into their determined place.

Your visit frequency will depend on the severity of your case, but on average, you’ll visit every 4-6 weeks.

Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and are fitted to your teeth, so it is very unlikely anyone will notice you’re wearing them.

With Invisalign, you don’t have food or beverage restrictions. Simply take your aligners out, eat what you’d like, brush and floss then replace your aligners.

You might experience some discomfort with Invisalign, but you’ll find they are a much more comfortable treatment option compared to metal braces.
