In general yes. Invisalign® aligners are only removed for eating, drinking and cleaning. To ensure the best treatment outcome possible, aligners should be worn a minimum of 18-24 hours per day.

In general, no. As the aligners are removed for eating and cleaning, you can still enjoy the same foods, and brush and floss as you normally would. It is not recommended that you drink beverages other than water while your aligners are in. It is also recommended that you refrain from chewing gum and smoking.

Even if you have been previously told that you are not an Invisalign® candidate, consider scheduling a consultation with Dr. Jaffe to find out if Invisalign® is now right for you. New advances in techniques and improved materials now allow us to treat more complicated cases. As your Barrington, Portsmouth and Bristol Invisalign orthodontist, Dr. Jaffe is capable of treating even some of the most involved Invisalign® cases.

Attachments are tooth colored “build ups” applied to your teeth which provide a “handle” for the aligners to grab on to. Because of these attachments, Invisalign® is not completely invisible, but they are still much less noticeable than conventional braces.

Inter-proximal reduction or IPR is the process of re-shaping teeth to create space for movement. It is one of the common techniques used by orthodontists to create space for teeth when using Invisalign®. While we do remove a very small amount of enamel from the teeth (think fraction of a millimeter), this process does not increase the susceptibility of the teeth to cavities, or affect the longevity of the teeth in any way.

As previously stated, with improvements in materials and techniques, Invisalign® can now treat a much wider range of problems. There are definitely certain bite problems that can be corrected with Invisalign®.
