Your Guide To Invisalign
Who Is A Candidate For Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment can be a great solution for patients of all ages looking for a virtually invisible method to improve their smile. Our innovations and technological advancements make it possible to fix nearly all common teeth-straightening and bite issues, from simple to complex — all without interrupting your busy life. And, thanks to a discreet blue dot on the outside of teen aligners, parents can be sure their child is wearing their clear aligners enough.
How Do I Care For My Aligners?
The best way to clean your aligners is by brushing and rinsing them in lukewarm water. It’s important that you brush your teeth after each meal before re-inserting your aligners to maintain good oral hygiene.
If you lose or break an Invisalign aligner, immediately let our team know. We will work with you to ensure you stay on track with your treatment plan, which may involve wearing a previous set of aligners, your next set of aligners, or ordering replacement aligners.
Are There Any Diet Restrictions?
Unlike traditional braces, there are no dietary restrictions with Invisalign. Since the aligners are removed when you eat and drink, you can eat anything you would like. Long live sticky caramel and corn on the cob! Just be sure to brush and floss before replacing your aligners.
Do I Have To Wear A Retainer After Getting My Invisalign Off?
We recommend wearing a retainer full-time for the first couple of months after you complete your Invisalign treatment, and then nighttime for a lifetime afterward to keep your teeth perfectly straight.
Retainers can wear out, break, or become lost over time, and we want to make sure that you experience as little downtime as possible. We also want to make sure that your retainers are fitting properly, that you’re using them correctly, and that you always have access to help from our team should any issues arise.
Our Lifetime Retainer Program allows you to get lifetime replacement retainers at no additional charge for an upfront fee of $780. This can be included in our in-office, interest-free financing program.
This program includes up to two free removable retainers per arch per year for the rest of your life! If you have a “permanent” bonded retainer this program covers one replacement of that over your lifetime. There will be a charge for the second bonded retainer and any future bonded replacements. Repairs of these bonded retainers are done at no charge.
