Questions to Ask Your Dentist About Invisalign

Last updated 5 years ago

If you’re thinking about correcting your bite, tooth alignment, or spacing using Invisalign, then you can rest assured knowing that this technology has helped millions of Americans achieve their dream smile. In order to get the most out of your treatment, it’s important that you discuss any concerns or confusion you may have about the process with your NYC Invisalign specialist. Here are four questions you should ask your dentist about Invisalign:

How Long Can I Expect the Treatment to Last?

The length of treatment depends on each client’s individual case. If you are seeking treatment from your NYC Invisalign specialist to correct a major bite problem then your treatment time will vary when compared to other patients undergoing treatment to straighten teeth or realign the jaw. That’s why it’s important to discuss your unique case with your Manhattan cosmetic dentistry team.

Will the Aligners Make Eating or Speaking More Difficult?

It’s possible that you will speak with a small lisp in the first few days of wearing your Invisalign system. Your Invisalign provider can discuss ways to reduce the effects of this temporary change so you can feel confident with your new aligners. Since you don’t wear your Invisalign braces while you eat, you won’t have to worry about their effects on your ability to chew.

How Do Simple Trays Have the Ability to Move My Teeth?

For many NYC Invisalign patients, the notion that small plastic trays can reshape their small can be hard to comprehend. If you’d like to learn more about how each new set of trays is personally designed to help you achieve a new smile, then don’t be embarrassed to ask your doctor for a more thorough explanation of the process.
