We get all sorts of questions about Invisalign clear aligners, the most popular and trendy way to straighten your teeth today. Below are 5 questions we hear the most from patients and parents.

Can I eat and drink while wearing my Invisalign aligners?
Except for pure water, you must remove your aligners for all types of meals, snacks and drinks.

Does Invisalign treatment work as well as traditional braces?
Absolutely! But only with patient cooperation. It is important that you wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day and follow your orthodontist’s directions throughout treatment to get the best results. Soon you will see your smile transforming!

Do I sleep with the aligners in my mouth?
Yes. For the best results in the shortest time, you should wear your aligners 20-22 hours a day including sleep.

What if I lose my aligners?
Please call one of our offices in OKC or Edmond if you lose your aligners so that we can advise you on the best course of action. You may be asked to wear previous aligners, your next set of aligners, or a replacement set may be necessary.

Can I wear a mouth guard during Invisalign treatment?
Invisalign aligners are designed to straighten teeth, not to protect from injury so they are not a substitute for quality sports mouthguard.

Please remove your aligners during sports activity to ensure proper function of your mouth guard. Make sure to keep your aligners or mouth guard in a case when you are not using them.
