Dr. Cabal and his team in Fort Worth, TX is here to help you learn more about Invisalign® treatment. 

Quiz Questions

  1. True or False. Invisalign® treatment is only appropriate for adults.
  2. True or False. During treatment, you will wear multiple sets aligners throughout the entire duration of treatment.
  3. True or False. Brushing and flossing aren’t necessary during Invisalign® treatment.

Answer Key

  1. False. Invisalign® treatment can be appropriate for any age with mild to moderate alignment issues. Many teenagers want to go with the more discreet treatment that the clear aligners of Invisalign® can provide.
  2. True. Your Invisalign® treatment plan will be completely customized for you. Using digital technology, your smile needs will be assessed and a plan will be mapped out. Invisalign® works in increments where each set of custom-made aligners builds on top of the progress of the previous set. Every few weeks or so, you will switch to a new set of aligners. The aligners are created to the exact specifications of your smile.
  3. False. Oral hygiene remains important during treatment. In some ways it can feel more important. Because you can remove aligners at your will for eating, drinking, or for hygiene, it is crucial to keep your smile clean. The aligners can trap bacteria and leftover food debris against the teeth, which makes brushing and flossing before returning the aligners to your mouth incredibly important.
