I'm already wearing braces. Can I switch to Invisalign?
It is possible to switch from braces to Invisalign. However, there may be a reason that braces are a better choice for you. Our doctors can discuss your options with you to determine the best approach.
Can Invisalign fix my teeth if they shifted after braces?
Yes, Invisalign can treat most common misalignment. If you are dissatisfied with the results of your past orthodontic treatment, make an appointment and we explain your treatment choices to you.
Does Invisalign work with veneers or crowns?
It depends. Make sure to discuss your full dental history with Dr. Parr or Dr. Frey during your consultation so they can determine if Invisalign will work for you.
Can I use Invisalign with bridgework?
Since dental bridges connect two or more teeth, Invisalign may not be effective for patients with bridgework. However, you may benefit from an alternative orthodontic treatment.
How do I keep my aligners clean?
You can brush your aligners with a toothbrush and toothpaste. Make sure to rinse them with lukewarm water, as hot temperatures can warp the plastic. We can also provide you with a sterilizing system keep your trays clean and hygienic during treatment.
What if I lose or break an aligner?
Let our office know immediately. We can make sure you stay on track with your treatment plan. You may need to wear a previous aligner, switch to the next set in the series, or order a replacement.
Is Invisalign painful?
The Invisalign system works by applying constant, gentle pressure to guide your teeth into place. You may feel some discomfort, especially for the first few days after switching to a new set. However, most patients describe the sensation as pressure, rather than pain.
