Q1. True or false – Invisalign is a one-size-fits-all treatment that only works for a small selection of orthodontic needs.

Q2. True or false – Technology will allow you to get a sneak preview of the way your future straightened smile will appear.

Q3. True or false – Only one set of aligners will be necessary for your Invisalign treatment.

Q4. True or false – You won’t need to brush your teeth while you are wearing Invisalign, as the aligners create a protective barrier for your teeth.


A1. FALSE – Invisalign is completely customized to your specific case. Your dentist will consult with you, exam your mouth, and take detailed impressions of your teeth and bite. This data will be sent to a lab so that your plastic aligners can be fabricated for optimal and expedient straightening.

A2. TRUE – Thanks to 3D computer imaging, you can see images of the goals for your teeth before Invisalign treatment even begins.

A3. FALSE – You will leave your dentist’s office with a complete series of customized clear plastic aligners. Over the course of your treatment (generally an average of a year) you will switch aligners on both the top and bottom teeth every two or three weeks. You will keep appointments with your dentist every 6 weeks to ensure that your invisible braces are doing their job correctly.

A4. FALSE – You will take your aligners out when you eat, drink, and brush your teeth as usual.
