It depends on many factors, and only your dentist can decide for sure. However, Jennifer Stachel Orthodontics offers an accelerated option that can cut the length of your treatment by 30-50%.
It is normal to have a bit of irritation in your cheeks, tongue, or lips right after you start Invisalign. Your mouth is adapting to something completely new, and the soreness will go away quickly. In the meantime, we recommend a warm salt water rinse to aid in healing. You can also check the edges of your aligner to make sure they are completely smooth. If you notice any roughness, use a nail file to gently smooth out those spots.
Many people also experience a bit of soreness in their teeth for a few days after each aligner change, which eases quickly. However, we try to be proactive in addressing this by using Cold Laser Therapy to accelerate healing and inhibit pain sensations in the nerves.
Anytime you put something in your mouth, your muscles and nerves must get used to it. It’s possible that you may experience a slight lisp for a couple of days, but this will go away as soon as your tongue gets used to the aligner.
You can eat and drink whatever you like, and chew gum, while using aligners. However, we recommend removing your aligner for all meals and snacks, including gum, to avoid getting anything stuck to the aligner or discoloring it. Remember to brush your teeth and put the aligner back in as soon as you are finished. If removing the aligner is not practical, be sure to at least rinse both your mouth and the aligner with plain water when you are finished. Tobacco products can stain the aligners as well as your teeth. Sucking on sugar free mints, and drinking water, will not harm your aligners at all.
Call your orthodontist as soon as possible. We can order new replacement aligners, but your orthodontist will instruct you how best to proceed during the few days before they arrive.
Aligners are made of clear, strong medical grade plastic that is virtually invisible when worn.
While Invisalign can be used with virtually any treatment philosophy, specific training is needed. All doctors interested in treating patients with Invisalign must attend training before cases will be accepted from their office.
Aligners should be worn all day, except when eating, brushing and flossing.
Usually about once every 4-6 weeks. This is the only way the doctor can be sure that the treatment is progressing as planned.
