Commonly Asked Invisalign Questions

Now, let’s look at some commonly asked Invisalign questions (or FAQ).

Today, more adults than ever are getting started with Invisalign and braces. However, everyone loves how discreet, convenient, and effective Invisalign is.

If you’re looking for “Invisalign Midtown Manhattan,” the easiest way to find out if you’re a candidate is with a free virtual consultation. Or, get started with your complimentary in-person consultation.

To determine if you are an Invisalign candidate, an experienced orthodontist must assess your unique smile and health history. Then, they will be able to determine if Invisalign can help you. Chances are, it can, as it has helped over ten million people to date worldwide. 

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that works by gradually moving teeth to their ideal positions over time. In that way, it works like braces with consistent gentle pressure. 

Unlike braces, Invisalign can be removed during treatment. Whenever you eat, drink, or brush your teeth, you’ll remove the thin, comfortable aligners. Therefore, you don’t have to be as mindful about avoiding some foods as with braces. However, you still need to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day for the best results (including while you sleep).

Another difference from braces: You’ll wear a series of aligners, which vary in number by the custom plan. For minor corrections, you will need fewer aligners, and it will take less time. For advanced corrections, you’ll need more aligners and time to achieve perfection. 

After about two weeks, you’ll switch to the next set of aligners in the series until you reach the final ones. Then, you’ll be ready to show the world your new, healthy smile!

How Long Does Invisalign Take?

Another commonly asked Invisalign question: How long Invisalign treatment takes varies from person to person, as with any orthodontic treatment. For a minor correction, it may only take around six months. However, when the teeth need to move more, it can take an average of 12-18 months. In some cases, it can take longer.

However, you can start to see results in several weeks. Before you begin, you can see a simulation of how your new smile will appear.

Is Invisalign Worth It?

The next commonly asked Invisalign question is whether it’s worth the cost and effort. We answer with a resounding “Yes! Investing in orthodontic treatment like Invisalign or braces is worth it.” 

Gibbs Orthodontic Associates offers affordable payment plans and will work with insurance to maximize any benefits you may have.

As you perfect your smile, you’re also improving your oral health. As the teeth and jaws are aligned, you can avoid potentially serious health concerns like:

  • Tooth decay and wear
  • Losing teeth and resulting bone loss
  • Gum disease and related problems
  • Negative changes to one’s appearance
  • Difficulty chewing or speaking impediments
  • Jaw pain and TMJ symptoms
  • Lower self-esteem and reluctance to smile

Following Invisalign, you’ll be proud to show your smile to everyone. Best of all, the benefits are yours for a lifetime. See more about the cost for Invisalign here.

Why Choose an Orthodontist for Invisalign?

We hope this list of commonly asked Invisalign questions has been helpful.

When considering Invisalign or braces, it’s best to consult an orthodontist. After dental school, orthodontists undergo years of additional education, training, and experience to become experts in aligning teeth and jaws.

Therefore, orthodontists are best qualified to provide an orthodontic treatment like Invisalign. By choosing an experienced orthodontist who you enjoy being around, you will have a better overall experience and results.
