How much do you know about Invisalign®? Did you know that Invisalign can be used even if you have already received orthodontic treatments in the past? Did you know that Invisalign aligners are custom-made from a patented thermoplastic without the need for any metals? The following questions can give you a much better idea of what to expect with Invisalign’s amazing technology:

TRUE or FALSE: Some foods and snacks are prohibited with Invisalign.
– False, you do not have to change your diet, and can take out your aligners before every meal.

TRUE or FALSE: You can remove Invisalign during mealtime.
– This is true. If you need to detach your aligners for meals or for cleaning, they can easily be popped out and reinserted later.

TRUE or FALSE: Invisalign aligners are invisible.
– This is partially true because Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible. If they were entirely invisible, it would VERY difficult to find them every time you had to put them in!

TRUE or FALSE: One pair of Invisalign can be used by others.
– This is false. Each pair of Invisalign aligners is designed and constructed for each patient’s specific dental profile to ensure the best possible treatment. Also, avoid sharing mouth utensils, including toothbrushes, as this can easily lead to contamination.
