How will Invisalign treatment affect my life?

- *Can anyone tell that I’m wearing the aligners?*

Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. Others may not even notice
you’re wearing them, making Invisalign treatment a seamless fit with your

- *Can I take my aligners off whenever I need to?*

Yes, you can remove your Invisalign aligners for eating, drinking,
brushing, and flossing. You can take them off for special occasions, like a
wedding, job interview, or for playing your favorite sport or instrument.
Just remember to wear them 20 to 22 hours a day to get the best results.

- *Are there any restrictions on what I can eat while in treatment?*

None! Invisalign clear aligners are removable, so there are no food
restrictions at all. You need to remove the aligners when you eat or drink
anything besides water.

-*Is Invisalign treatment painful?*

Invisalign treatment moves your teeth by applying gentle, constant force,
but some people do feel temporary discomfort for the first few days of
wearing a new set of aligners. Typically, people describe it as feeling
“pressure” and it’s normal — it’s a sign your Invisalign clear aligners are
working and transforming your smile.
