If you are suffering from a variety of dental problems such as crowding, spacing, or a poor bite, you may be able to treat them using Invisalign. Unlike conventional metal braces, Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners to gradually shift one’s teeth into place. Because it is a fairly new treatment option, many patients have a number of important and basic questions about Invisalign treatment.

Questions About Treatment
There are a number of questions and concerns many people have about Invisalign treatment. Some common questions include the following:
Q: How does Invisalign work?
- A: Invisalign aligners gradually shift teeth over time from their current position to the position your dentist has mapped out for you. Typically, after two weeks you will get a new set of aligners to wear.
Q: What happens after Invisalign treatment?
- A: Depending on your case, you might need a retainer after treatment to prevent teeth from shifting back.
Q: Will my aligners slip off while sleeping?
- A: Because the aligners are formed to fit tightly on your teeth, it is very unlikely they will fall out.
Q: Can I drink alcohol with aligners in?
- A: You can drink a small amount of alcohol while wearing aligners; however, make sure to clean the aligners and your teeth as soon after as possible.
