Frequently Asked Questions about Invisalign invisible braces

Q: What is Invisalign?

A: Invisalign is the best way to straighten teeth and improve your smile. Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligners that fit over your teeth to gently straighten your smile. Most people won’t notice you are wearing them, so they are often called “invisible braces.”

Q: How do Invisalign invisible braces work?

A: Our patients wear an Invisalign aligner for two weeks at a time. After two weeks, you will switch to the next Invisalign aligner. During that time, you can remove the aligners to eat and drink, and brush and floss. The length of treatment varies from person to person but is often half the time of traditional metal braces (24 months).

Q: Will Invisalign work for me?

A: Invisalign invisible braces work for most of our patients, but not all. The type and severity of correction that is required will affect your Invisalign treatment options. Meet with Dr. Thomas to discover if Invisalign invisible braces are right for you.

Q: Do I have to wear my Invisalign aligners all the time?

A: Where your Invisalign aligners day and night. You can, however, remove the aligners when eating and drinking, or brushing your teeth and flossing. And when you are wearing these invisible braces, it will be hard for those around you to notice them at all.

Q: Is Invisalign comfortable compared to metal braces?

A: Yes, very much so. With Invisalign invisible braces, you have smooth thermoplastic material molded to your exact bite. No poking wires, no harsh brackets.

Q: Is Dr. Allan S. Thomas certified to perform Invisalign treatments?
