How Does It Work?

Invisalign clear aligners act as a clear mouthguard that applies pressure to your misaligned teeth. It’s made up of transparent, smooth, and long-lasting plastic aligners that fit over a whole arc of teeth. Because they’re formed from a mold of your teeth, these clear aligners put pressure on the problem areas of your teeth and gradually shift them into their appropriate locations.     

Will I Feel Pain When Wearing Them?

Because Invisalign is similar to any other orthodontic treatment, you may feel discomfort while using them. If the discomfort affects your quality of life, take over-the-counter pain relievers to help you feel better. Once you’ve gotten over the initial stages, the pain will fade, and the pressure from your aligners will lessen.  

How Long Will I Need to Wear Them?

Your oral health determines the time it takes Invisalign to straighten your teeth. Complicated concerns, such as overcrowding and severe misalignment, may take longer to resolve than those with fewer imperfections. You should wear your aligners as often as possible if you want your Invisalign to move your teeth to their final placements faster.
