Saginaw Orthodontist Answers FAQs About Invisalign


According to a recent Kelton Research study, people with beautiful, even smiles are considered both more attractive and successful. A beautiful smile boosts confidence and helps make a great first impression. Unfortunately, dental misalignment often hinders the appearance of a person’s smile, causing crooked or crowded teeth. In order to correct misalignment, Lake Country Orthodontics offers treatment with Invisalign clear braces. In today’s blog, your Saginaw orthodontist, Dr. Ciro Cabal, explains how Invisalign provides practically invisible smile correction.

Invisalign Frequently Asked Questions

Question: How does Invisalign work?

Answer: Invisalign corrects misalignment with a series of clear plastic aligners. The patient wears the aligners, which gradually and gently reposition the teeth. With Invisalign, you receive inconspicuous smile transformation.

Question: How often will I need to wear the aligners?

Answer: Patients typically wear the aligners for between 20 and 22 hours a day. Approximately every two weeks, they will upgrade to a new set of aligners. The entire process takes about a year for adults and 18 months for teens.

Question: Will I need to change my diet?

Answer: No. With traditional braces, patients need to avoid sticky foods, which can become stuck in braces, and hard foods, which can damage orthodontics. Since the aligners can be removed before meals, you don’t need to alter your diet. Removable aligners also make thorough brushing and flossing easier, which improves oral hygiene and reduces the risk of teeth stains.

Question: Does Invisalign require frequent office visits?

Answer: No. In fact, on average, patients only need to see their Saginaw orthodontist once every six weeks. This saves our patients both time and money.
