Helpie FAQ


  • What is Invisalign?

    Invisalign is an innovative system that allows you to straighten your teeth using a set of custom aligners instead of braces. These aligners are removable, invisible, and very comfortable. Invisalign offers you predictable and accurate results in record time.

  • How does Invisalign work?

    You will have a digital scan of your teeth taken during your first appointment. These digital images are used to create a 3D render of your teeth. Your doctor will then manipulate the render to map out each movement of your teeth. These movements then become an aligner that applies gentle pressure to your teeth during 1-2 weeks you wear each aligner.

  • What makes Invisalign so different from other clear aligner systems?

    Re-designing a smile is a delicate operation that requires experience, a trained eye, and a high level of training. Invisalign is backed by millions of happy patients worldwide that successfully enhanced their smiles using this treatment. Invisalign will offer you predictable and efficient results using its patented technology, software, and Smartrack material.

  • How much does Invisalign cost and what are the payment options?

    We will share the total cost of your treatment at your initial consultation because it will depend on a variety of factors including your diagnosis, the length of your treatment, and your treatment goals.

  • How long does Invisalign treatment take?

    During your initial consultation, the doctor will review the details of your treatment plan with you, including the length of your treatment. This treatment plan is designed by your doctor to meet your unique needs and no two treatment plans are the same. The length of your treatment will depend on a variety of factors including the amount of correction you require, your diagnosis, your age, your level of oral health, and your commitment to follow your doctor’s instructions.

  • How often do I have to wear my Invisalign aligners?

    Your doctor will provide you with detailed instructions that are specific to you and your custom treatment plan. However, in general terms, we recommend that you wear your aligners as much as possible. Only take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss.

  • Can I still eat all of my favorite food and drinks?

    The answer is Yes! One of the biggest advantages of choosing Invisalign is that you can continue to enjoy all of your favorite foods and drinks, just remember to remove your aligners before eating or drinking. We encourage you to keep a healthy diet and indulge moderately.

  • How do I clean my aligners?

    You can use your toothbrush and toothpaste to gently brush the inside and outside of your aligners until they are clean. You can also soak your aligners in a denture cleaner. Please remember to avoid exposing your aligners to any heat including the dishwasher, boiling water, etc.

  • How often will I have to come in for orthodontic appointments?

  • What happens when I’m done with my Invisalign treatment?

    Congratulations! You now have the smile you have always dreamed of and your teeth are healthier than ever. However, you are not quite done. After the treatment phase, you go into the retention phase which serves to hold your teeth in their new position long enough for the gums to harden around the teeth. We will offer you a variety of retainers including removable, fixed, visible, and aesthetic options.
