What to Know About Wearing Invisalign® Aligners

By: Dr. Junée F. Gardy


In the world of orthodontics, Invisalign clear aligners have revolutionized how we approach teeth straightening. Individuals no longer have to opt for traditional metal braces to achieve that perfect smile. Dr. Junée F. Gardy and the team at Junée F. Gardy DDS, PA are specialists in offering this modern treatment option. Not only do these aligners blend seamlessly with your teeth, making them nearly invisible, but they're also custom-fitted to ensure maximum comfort and effectiveness. Their aesthetic appeal and comfort make them a preferred choice for Naples, FL, adults and teenagers alike.

How do Invisalign aligners work?

One of the standout features of Invisalign aligners is, as the name suggests, their removability. But what do removable Invisalign aligners mean for you? In essence, it offers you flexibility. You can take them out for short periods, which makes tasks like eating, brushing, and flossing much easier than with traditional braces. However, for the best results, it's generally recommended to wear the aligners for about 20 to 22 hours a day. This removability offers a level of convenience that other orthodontic options simply can't match.

What can I expect from Invisalign treatments?

Understanding the Invisalign treatment process is crucial for setting realistic expectations. Initially, Dr. Gardy will conduct a thorough examination to determine if Invisalign aligners are the right treatment for you. Once confirmed, a personalized treatment plan will be created, and your custom aligners will be made. Every two weeks or so, you'll switch to a new set of aligners, which will gradually help move your teeth into their desired positions. Routine check-ups are essential to monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments.

What are the dos and don'ts of wearing Invisalign aligners?

When wearing Invisalign aligners, it's essential to follow specific guidelines to ensure the effectiveness of the treatment. First, the aligners should be cleaned regularly with lukewarm water and gentle cleaning agents to avoid the build-up of bacteria. Avoid using hot water, as it can warp the material. Also, abstain from eating or drinking anything except water while wearing the aligners to prevent staining or damage. Regular visits to Dr. Gardy will help fine-tune your treatment and ensure you're on track to achieving your desired results.
