If you are interested in straightening your teeth and perfecting the appearance of your smile, Invisalign treatment may be exactly what you are looking for. Our Orland Park Invisalign dentist office has helped numerous people achieve their desired results with Invisalign aligners. Today’s blog is all about what it is like to live day to day with Invisalign aligners. Read on to get the answers you need from our dentist!

Q: How often will I wear my Invisalign aligners?

A: The more you wear your aligners the faster your smile will transform. You should be wearing your aligners all day and night, with the exception of when you eat and when you clean your teeth. It is vital that your aligners are able to apply consistent and constant pressure on your teeth—this is what makes your teeth move!

Q: How do my Invisalign aligners stay in place? What if they fall out?

A: Each one of your aligners will be crafted to fit tightly over your smile. You don’t need to worry about the aligners falling out—your aligners will fit naturally over your teeth.

Q: What should I do with my aligners when I need to take them out?

A: As we mentioned, you will need to remove your aligners for meals and to clean your teeth. When you receive your aligners we will give you a small case to keep them in. We highly recommend that you place your aligners in this case whenever they are out of your mouth. This will prevent you from losing, or accidentally throwing away, your aligners!
