Many people are self-conscious about their smiles, particularly if their teeth are not perfectly straight or in alignment. That is where Invisalign can help.

  1. What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the modern answer to braces! Invisalign technologically takes a 3D image of your teeth, both in their original position and in their intended position. Once your dentist has this image, they can formulate a treatment plan using the clear aligners.

  1. What Is Invisalign Made From?

We all like to know what we are putting in our mouth, so you can rest assured that Invisalign is made from high quality strong thermoplastic material that is BPA (Bisphenol-A) free material.

  1. How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign works by gently manipulating the teeth over a series of months to ensure they align into the correct position. In fact, different teeth can be maneuvered into position at different rates, which may be necessary for some dental conditions.

  1. How Long Will The Treatment Take?

You should allow around 12 months to get the full benefit from Invisalign, although it may take longer with more complex dental needs. Sometimes it takes only 6 months!

  1. Can I Remove The Invisalign aligners?

Yes, you can remove Invisalign aligners it at any time, but bear in mind it needs to stay in your mouth as long as possible to do its job (about 22 hours a day), even at night. However, it should be removed when you attend to oral hygiene and it can also be cleaned at this point.

        10 .How Do I Clean Invisalign?
