Q: What does it feel like to wear Invisalign aligners?

A: Because Invisalign aligners are designed to fit snugly over your existing smile, you’ll find that it is easy to speak and smile normally with your aligners in place. You will be able to feel them on your teeth, especially at first, but patients report that this sensation diminishes over time.

Q: How do I keep my aligners clean?

A: The first thing to know is that you will actually take your aligners out whenever you need to eat or drink something other than water. This helps prevent our aligners from becoming damaged or grungy. So, you’ll pop your aligners out to eat, and then clean your smile before putting your aligners back in place. Additionally, you can clean your aligners with toothpaste or the Invisalign cleaning formulation.

Q: Will my Invisalign aligners wear out?

A: Throughout the treatment process, you’ll only be wearing specific aligners for two or three weeks. This means that, generally speaking, you won’t really be wearing individual aligners long enough for them to wear out. When it comes time for you to receive your post-treatment retainers, our dental team will talk to you about you can maintain these oral appliances so that they last as long as possible.

If you have been considering Invisalign treatment, our Glendale Invisalign dentists are happy to give you all of the information you need about this treatment option. The best way to get started is to give our dental team a call to schedule a personal consultation.
