what patients ask regularly about

How do I care for my aligners?

You can wash your Invisalign aligners with a toothbrush and warm water and soap.

Can my treatment be shortened?

Treatment time may be shortened, or accelerated, if your case is appropriate for accelerated treatment. If you are interested in accelerating your treatment time, or if our orthodontist thinks you are a good candidate for it, you may be able to incorporate either AcceleDent or Propel into your treatment. Both AcceleDent and Propel shorten your treatment time.

What is IPR?

IPR is short for Interproximal Reduction, which is when your orthodontist utilizes the correct tools to adjust the size and shape of your teeth (mostly on the sides of your tooth, where it touches another tooth). You may require some IPR for a few different reasons: if your upper and lower sets of teeth do not fit together well, if the teeth do not lay adjacent to each other well, or in some cases of mild crowding. IPR does not hurt, and is a very quick and seamless procedure.

What are attachments?

If needed, we may place little “bumps” or attachments onto your tooth so that the aligner can grip the tooth easier in order to correctly align it. Attachments are very small enamel or tooth-colored pieces that we bond to your teeth. Corresponding bumps in your Invisalign aligners match up with the attachment on your tooth to better achieve your straight smile. Attachments may fall off after bonding, but if that occurs please give us a call and we can make an appointment to rebond your attachments.

How often do I wear my Invisalign?

You need to wear your aligners for 22 to 24 hours a day in order for them to work correctly. Failure to adhere to your treatment plan may cause a delay in treatment or relapse.
