Invisalign Providers in Lake Ridge VA Q &A

Lake Ridge Dental Associates

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a practically invisible teeth aligner made from thermoplastic. Each Invisalign “tray” is custom-made for your mouth. When you have Invisalign aligners in, your teeth gradually become straighter and you don’t have to worry about them being easily noticed by others.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign aligners use controlled pressure to move teeth into a straighter position. When you opt for these aligners, you get one set every two weeks or so. Each set works on moving a different set of teeth into a straighter position. You might have slight discomfort while you wear these aligners for the first few days during each stage, but you’ll otherwise adjust to them quickly.

Invisalign takes roughly one year to fully work, but this varies from patient to patient. Your dentist at Dr. Robert C. Dost & Associates lets you know how long it should take for these aligners to straighten all of your teeth.

Why should I choose Invisalign?

These aligners offer a number of benefits over traditional braces:

  • You can remove them from your mouth
  • They’re easier to take care of
  • You don’t have to restrict your diet

How long do I wear Invisalign each day?

You can’t just leave them in while you sleep and take them out when you wake up, or they won’t work effectively. In order for Invisalign to work, you should plan on wearing them for at least 20 hours a day.

How do I care for my Invisalign?

You need to keep Invisalign aligners clean on a regular basis, so that they’ll stay in good condition. This usually means disinfecting them with a special cleaner made for this product. You can also use lukewarm water for brushing and rinsing them off.
