Invisalign dentist Santa Clara, CA

Wondering why choosing an Invisalign dentist to provide you with your Invisalign treatment is so important? While it is true that any dentist can offer their patients Invisalign treatment, in order for patients to expect ideal results they should choose a dentist who has been specifically trained in offering Invisalign services.

When you choose a dentist to provide you with the teeth straightening services you need, it really is essential that they are specifically trained in Invisalign services. Every set of Invisalign aligners is custom-made. This requires a dentist to be very precise when taking X-rays and impressions of the patient's mouth, as this is what is used to make the 3D model on which the aligners are based.

Invisalign dentist FAQs

The following is a list of some of the more frequently asked questions an Invisalign dentist receives from their patients.

How long does it take for Invisalign to start working?

The average amount of time it takes for Invisalign aligners teeth start working is about six weeks. Patients need to replace one set of aligners with another set about every two weeks. By the time a patient places their fourth set of aligners in their mouth, they should be able to tell a difference in the way their teeth look.

Is wearing Invisalign aligners painful?

No, wearing Invisalign aligners should not result in patients experiencing any pain. Instead, patients can expect to experience some discomfort for a few days after placing a new set of aligners in their mouth. This is completely normal and therefore to be expected, as with every new set of aligners the teeth continue to be moved into their proper positions.

How often should you brush your teeth with Invisalign?

Ideally, Invisalign patients should brush their teeth every time after eating and before placing their aligners back in their mouth. If this is not possible, then a thorough rinse is suggested. It is necessary to brush the teeth at least twice a day using a soft-bristled toothbrush and a non-abrasive toothpaste for good oral health.

Are retainers necessary after wearing Invisalign aligners?

Yes. The first part of the straightening teeth process involves wearing the aligners to actually straighten the teeth by moving them back into their correct positions. The second part of the process involves wearing a retainer to keep the teeth in their new and correct position. The average amount of time a retainer must be worn is 12 months.
