Eight Common Questions about Life with Invisalign

Invisalign® can straighten your teeth without the brightness or bother of metal braces, but you must know the following guidelines to get the best results from treatment.

  1. How frequently should I see my Invisalign provider?

Your Invisalign provider doctor will want to see you on a regular basis, which is about once every four to six weeks. These visits ensure that you’re progressing properly.

  1. Is there anything I can’t eat with Invisalign?

You can enjoy whatever you want because clear braces must be removed before eating. Feel free to enjoy all of your favorite foods, unless otherwise instructed by your Invisalign provider. This makes Invisalign a more carefree and convenient alternative to metal braces, which require restricting many foods. Just be sure you brush and floss your teeth after every meal before reinserting the clear braces.

  1. Am I allowed to drink alcohol with Invisalign?

It’s all right to consume a moderate amount of alcohol, as long as you properly clean both your teeth and the clear braces right after, as alcohol can be sugary.

  1. Is it OK to chew gum with clear braces?

No, because gum will stick to Invisalign. You should remove your clear braces before having any food or snacks to prevent this problem.

  1. Will smoking permanently stain clear braces?

Yes, smoking may cause discoloration.

  1. How much time should I wear Invisalign each day?

For best results, it’s essential for you to wear your clear braces for between 20 and 22 hours a day. They should only be taken out when eating, brushing, and flossing.

  1. How much total time is needed for treatment?

The length of your treatment can only be determined by your Invisalign provider because each person’s needs, and case, are different. In general, most adults average around 12 months of wear, while the average time for teens can vary based on their needs. Still, this takes much less time than traditional braces, which makes Invisalign a much faster treatment alternative to metal braces.

  1. What if I travel and accidentally forget to bring my clear braces?

It depends on how long you go without them. They should still fit if you’re only away for a brief amount of time, but you may feel some slight discomfort at first. If you’re away for a while, you must alert your Invisalign provider, who can help you handle the dilemma.
