FAQs

  1. What is Invisalign, and how does it work?
    Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth. The aligners are custom-made for each patient and are worn for a specified period, gradually shifting teeth into the desired position. No metal brackets or wires, and none of the restrictions that come with metal braces.
  2. How long does Invisalign treatment typically take?
    The duration of Invisalign treatment varies depending on individual cases. On average, it takes about 12 to 18 months for most patients. However, treatment time is influenced by factors such as the complexity of the case and patient compliance.
  3. Is Invisalign suitable for everyone, and what issues can it address?
    Invisalign is suitable for many orthodontic issues, including crowding, spacing, overbites, underbites, and crossbites. However, its effectiveness depends on individual cases. Ivy Dental assesses each patient to determine if Invisalign is the right solution for their specific needs.
  4. How often should I wear my Invisalign aligners?
    Invisalign aligners should be worn for 20-22 hours per day, only removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. Consistent and proper wear is crucial for the success of the treatment. Ivy Dental provides detailed instructions to ensure optimal results.
  5. Are there any dietary restrictions with Invisalign?
    No dietary restrictions exist with Invisalign, as the aligners are removable. However, it is recommended to remove them while eating to avoid damage. Patients can enjoy their favourite foods without limitations, unlike traditional braces.
  6. Does Invisalign treatment hurt, and are there any side effects?
    Discomfort with Invisalign is generally minimal. Patients may experience mild pressure or soreness when transitioning to a new set of aligners. Side effects are typically temporary and include slight speech changes initially. Ivy Dental ensures patients are informed about what to expect and provides support throughout the treatment process.
