How Invisalign Works
Invisalign treatment uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually straighten teeth and correct dental alignment issues. No unsightly metal brackets, no uncomfortable metal wires! Instead, each new set of aligners is custom designed to apply just the right amount of pressure to specific points in your mouth to slowly shift teeth into the desired position.
What Dental Issues Can Invisalign Address?
Invisalign is an excellent solution to address common dental imperfections, such as:
It can be challenging to thoroughly brush and floss a crowded smile since there is little to no space between teeth. However, this means tiny food particles and bacteria are more likely to remain stuck in the hard-to-reach places in your mouth, increasing your risk of developing tooth decay or gum disease. Invisalign can realign your teeth to both look better and facilitate daily brushing.
Spaces Between Teeth
The reverse of a crowded smile can also cause problems: too much space between teeth can allow food particles to get trapped between them and contribute to tooth decay. Invisalign can help move teeth back into the proper alignment and reduce the risk of cavities.
Severe bite problems can place pressure on the jaw joint, which in turn can lead to teeth grinding or jaw clenching. Grinding or clenching can wear down the protective outer layer of the teeth, known as enamel. Invisalign can improve the way your teeth fit together by correcting an underbite, overbite or crossbite.
Benefits of Invisalign Clear Braces
Each year, countless patients choose to straighten their teeth with Invisalign clear braces due to the following benefits:
- Discreet Appearance – Can’t imagine wearing metal braces to work? With transparent Invisalign aligners, you can discreetly straighten your teeth without others realizing you are wearing an orthodontic device.
- Quicker Results - In just 12 to 18 months, you can achieve the straight smile you have always wanted with Invisalign in Lake Wales! Compare that to traditional orthodontic treatment with metal braces, which typically takes 18 months to 3 years.
- Greater Comfort – Some patients report that metal braces irritate their inner cheeks and gums. Invisalign’s smooth, plastic aligners are designed to fit comfortably in your mouth.
- Removability – You can continue to brush your teeth normally and eat all your favorite foods with Invisalign’s easy-to-remove aligners.
Understanding the Cost of Invisalign
Every person’s smile is unique, so there is no one-size-fits-all treatment or treatment cost when it comes to dental realignment. Indeed, the final cost of Invisalign will depend on a variety of factors, including the overall complexity of the case and how many aligners will be needed to complete treatment.

Does wearing Invisalign trays hurt?
Each Invisalign aligner that you wear will be custom-fitted to place a strategic amount of pressure on your teeth to shift them into their ideal positions. While this may cause a little discomfort, because the trays are made from smooth plastic, they’re much more pleasant to wear than traditional metal braces.
Some patients report that they feel the most discomfort whenever they switch to their new set of trays, but this can usually be remedied by making the change at night, so you sleep through most of the adjustment period. If necessary, you can also take an over-the-counter pain medication like ibuprofen.
Do I need to avoid eating certain foods while undergoing Invisalign treatment?
Nope! Unlike traditional metal braces, where you’re expected to alter your diet to accommodate the treatment, Invisalign allows you to eat all of your favorite foods without having to worry. All you have to do before eating is remove your trays so you don’t accidentally stain or damage them.
How long will I need to wear my aligners for every day?
At your initial consultation, your dentist in Lake Wales will discuss all of the details of your treatment with you, including how long you’ll need to wear your trays for. Typically, we recommend that patients wear them for between 20 and 22 hours each day to stay on-track with their treatment timeline.
What’s the best way to clean my Invisalign trays?
Because your aligners are removable, they’re incredibly easy to clean. After each meal, you’ll need to rinse off your trays before putting them back in your mouth. You should also brush your aligners using a soft-bristled toothbrush and clear antibacterial soap or use Invisalign cleaning crystals to make sure that bacteria, saliva, and food debris don’t accumulate on them.
Can I get Invisalign if I’ve had metal braces in the past?
Many patients that we see who get Invisalign have had metal braces in the past. Invisalign is a great option for adults who have to undergo orthodontic treatment again, because they’re discreet, comfortable, and the treatment is more flexible than traditional braces.
