Common Questions about Invisalign

At Evolve Dental Care, our Allentown dentist believes everyone deserves a smile of which they’re proud. We can offer a solution as effective as braces but with a ton more discretion for those with misaligned, overlapping, or gappy teeth. Invisalign is a system of molded, transparent dental trays which you wear most of the day. Over time, your aligners change the position of your teeth until you reach your smile goals.

How Does Invisalign Work?

To customize your aligners to your unique needs, we take images, impressions, and x-rays and share this data with specialized software that creates a 3-D plan for progressive tooth alignment. You can see the results we expect from your treatment and fill in the treatment time and cost projections.

Then, a lab uses the alignment plan to fabricate a progressive set of clear plastic aligners. You wear each aligner for about two weeks. Then you move on to the next set in the series. You will only remove your aligners to eat, drink, and when you brush and floss your teeth.

How to Clean Your Invisalign

We can recommend several options for cleaning your aligners. One plan is quite simple:

  1. Each time you eat, rinse your tray with lukewarm water
  2. Twice each day, use a soft-bristled toothbrush with a small amount of mild detergent on your aligner
  3. Rinse your tray thoroughly after brushing

You may also use special “Steraligner” trays with a cleaning solution or cleaning crystals provided by Invisalign. You will soak your aligners for several minutes and then give them an excellent rinse with clear water. When you remove your aligners, ensure you place them in a clean, dry case for safekeeping.

What Is Invisalign’s Cost?

Your particular cost will fall into a range affected by how many trays your treatment plan requires. In most cases, Invisalign is comparable to traditional braces while being more comfortable, flexible, and less noticeable. If you have dental insurance, your Invisalign treatment may be partially covered. However, the best way to determine your treatment’s cost is to scan your mouth and create your treatment plan.
