What is Invisalign?
Simply put, Invisalign is clear braces. You’ll straighten your teeth using removable aligners combined with 3D computer imaging technology that allows Dr. Luffey to plan your Invisalign treatment step-by-step.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that are custom-made for your teeth. The clear aligners move your teeth into place little by little. Every two weeks, you’ll remove the aligner and replace it with the next aligner in the series until the final position of your teeth is achieved.
How Long is the Invisalign Treatment?
The answer depends on your unique smile and your Albuquerque Invisalign dentist’s custom Invisalign treatment plan. Most Invisalign treatments are completed within 2 to 24 months.
How Many Hours Per Day Should I Wear Invisalign?
You need to wear Invisalign 22 hours per day for optimal results. You’ll probably wear your aligners most of the time, unless you’re eating. That’s one of the wonderful things about Invisalign—you can continue to eat all of the foods you love without worrying about the foods getting caught in wires or brackets.
Do I Remove the Aligners When I Eat?
Yes, you’ll remove your aligners whenever you want to eat. A word of caution: be careful about placing your aligners in your napkin. It’s entirely common for patients to accidentally throw away their aligners when they place them in napkins.
How Do I Clean the Aligners?
You can clean your Invisalign clear aligners by brushing and rinsing them with lukewarm water, or you can purchase an Invisalign cleaning kit, which includes special cleaning crystals that remove plaque from your aligners.
Is Invisalign Safe for Teens?
Yes! As an Invisalign dentist, Dr. Luffey provides Invisalign for teens in Albuquerque, NM.
I’m an Athlete. Can I Use Invisalign?
Athletes prefer Invisalign over traditional braces because with aligners, you don’t have to worry about any sharp brackets cutting into your mouth.
How Many Patients Use Invisalign?
More than 3 million patients worldwide have used Invisalign.
