Invisalign Q & A

How does Invisalign work?

Your clear Invisalign aligners are custom-made for your treatment plan. The aligners are like invisible braces, so they’re less noticeable than traditional metal braces.

As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth gently and gradually shift into place. You also change your set of aligners every week to keep up with your changing smile.

Your aligners move your teeth horizontally, vertically, and can even rotate them, and Dr. Ahmed schedules checkups every six weeks to monitor your progress.

The length of your treatment plan varies from person to person. For the best results, Dr. Ahmed recommends wearing your aligners for at least 20-22 hours per day, taking them out to eat and brush your teeth.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners transform smiles and lives for both teens and adults. Teens get their best smile through a unique treatment plan while adults get the smile they’ve always wanted without putting their lives on hold.

Invisalign also offers these additional benefits:

  • You can take the aligners on and off with ease
