What is Invisalign?

Gone are the days where traditional metal braces are necessary to straighten teeth. If you’d like to straighten your teeth in an invisible, effective way, Invisalign is the way to go. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to gradually shift your teeth into their proper positions. Invisalign treatment can be much quicker than traditional orthodontics and fits into a variety of lifestyles.

Who is a Candidate for Invisalign?

It’s important to note that Invisalign is not the right treatment for everyone. While it can resolve mild to moderate problems, more serious issues may require another approach. In addition, since Invisalign aligners are removable and must be worn for at least 22 hours a day, they are only an option for patients who are very responsible. At River Run Dental, we offer complimentary Invisalign consultations to help you determine if Invisalign is a good treatment option for you.

Benefits of Invisalign

Perhaps the greatest benefit of Invisalign is the fact that it can allow you to straighten your teeth in a non-obvious way. It can also make eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing a breeze because Invisalign aligners are removable. Lastly, Invisalign aligners are incredibly comfortable and do not cause irritation like other orthodontic treatments.

Is Invisalign treatment painful?
As with traditional metal braces, you may experience some temporary discomfort each time you place a new set of aligners in your mouth. This discomfort is usually pressure and a sign that your aligners are doing their job and moving your teeth.


How often should I visit the office for an Invisalign checkup?
We know you lead a busy life and are pleased to inform you that Invisalign checkups are only every 10-14 weeks. They are important as they give us a chance to make sure your treatment is progressing as it should. These visits are one of the big differentiators between Invisalign treatment and other clear aligners. Being under the supervision of a doctor the entire time ensures that your treatment progresses in the most efficient and the healthiest way possible.


Will I need to wear a retainer after Invisalign treatment?
If you’d like your new and improved smile to last for years to come, wearing a retainer once you complete Invisalign treatment is essential. It can help reduce your risk of relapse and ensure your teeth remain straight. Your first set of retainers is included with treatment, and we offer several enhanced retainer options as well.


What is the ideal way to clean Invisalign aligners?
We recommend brushing them with toothpaste and water. It’s a good idea to get into the habit of doing this each time you brush and floss your teeth.


How will Invisalign affect my speech?
Invisalign is like other orthodontic appliances in that it may temporarily affect the way you speak. The good news is that once your tongue and lips get used to the aligners, you’ll be able to speak normally. Other people usually have no idea that you are wearing them!


What is the typical length of an Invisalign treatment plan?
Your age and the severity of your case will determine the typical length of your treatment plan. However, most patients complete their Invisalign treatment in about a year.
