by | Date Published:

This short article is all about Invisalign—how it works, and what it can do! Keep reading to get some answers from our San Francisco dentists to commonly asked Invisalign-related questions. We hope that this information helps you feel more confident pursuing cosmetic treatment!

Q: How long does it take to see results with Invisalign?
A: The average time to complete Invisalign treatment is between a year and year and half. This timetable will obviously change depending on your dental needs, and the existing state of your smile. Also, keep in mind that, because Invisalign aligners are clear, you will actually be able to see your smile improve week to week.

Q: How do I care for my smile while using Invisalign?

A: Invisalign makes it easy to keep your smile fresh and clean throughout the treatment process. This is because Invisalign aligners are completely removable. You will be able to pop your aligners in and out of your smile at will. So, when it is time to clean your smile, you’ll simply take out your aligners, and brush and floss your teeth as you normally do. You will also be able to keep up with you six-month professional dental cleaning schedule.

Q: Do Invisalign aligners hurt?
A: In general Invisalign treatment is very comfortable and easy to live with. Invisalign aligners are made of smooth plastic resin, so they do not irritate patients’ oral tissues, like metal braces sometimes do. When you switch to a new aligner, you may feel some tightness and pressure for a brief time, but your smile will quickly adjust to the new aligner. In general patients report that Invisalign is much more comfortable than conventional braces.
