Q. How long do I have to wear them?
A. Depending on the severity of your condition, treatment time from start to finish will vary. You should wear the aligners for 20-22 hours every day. Yes, this means sleeping in them. Pop them out for meals, and for short amounts of time, but generally you will just leave them in and forget about them.
Q. How do I care for my Invisalign Aligners?
A. It’s suggested that you clean your aligners daily with lukewarm water. Each set will only last for two weeks before you change out to the next set. Some fans of Invisalign like adding a small amount of toothpaste and brushing them gently for a minty fresh finish.
Q. Does Invisalign contain harmful plastics?
A. No! Invisalign is made of medical grade thermoplastic resin. They have been extensively tested to ensure the biocompatibility of the material and that it is safe for humans.
