Did you know there is an orthodontic aligner system on the market that is metal-free and made entirely of a comfortable patented thermoplastic? Its name is Invisalign®, and if you have crooked teeth, it may be exactly what you have been waiting for. Listed below are some questions that can help you better understand how great Invisalign truly is:

TRUE or FALSE: Invisalign aligners are invisible.
– This is in part true because Invisalign aligners are partially invisible. If they were fully invisible, it would VERY difficult to find them every time you had to put them in!

TRUE or FALSE: One pair of Invisalign can be distributed at will among many people.
– This is false. Each pair of Invisalign aligners is designed and fashioned for each patient’s specific dental profile to ensure the best possible treatment. Also, never share mouth utensils, including toothbrushes, as this can cause bacterial contamination.

TRUE or FALSE: Invisalign orthodontic aligners are 100% changeable.
– This is true. If you need to remove your aligners for meals or for cleaning, they can easily be snapped out and reinserted later.

TRUE or FALSE: Invisalign orthodontic aligners have food restrictions.

– False, you do not have to change your diet, and can snap out your aligners before every meal.
