Clear Braces FAQs

Read the answers to commonly asked questions many patients have about Invisalign and Six Month Smiles:

Am I a candidate for clear braces?

If you have severe orthodontic issues, you may not benefit from Invisalign or Six Month Smiles. This is because they are better options for patients with mild to moderate orthodontic concerns. Patients should be in good oral health before their cosmetic treatment. We will examine your teeth and gums and treat any underlying problems before your treatment.

How do I care for my clear braces?

Patients must remove their Invisalign trays before eating or drinking. We recommend only drinking water when wearing the Invisalign aligners, as eating with the aligners on can stain or damage them. After eating or drinking, patients should brush their teeth before putting their aligners back on. Patients should avoid eating sticky, chewy, or hard foods when they receive Six Month Smiles as they can damage them or get stuck in the wires.

How long is treatment with clear braces?

Invisalign aligners need to be worn at least 22 hours a day for the best results. When worn properly, Invisalign treatment may be completed within 12 to 18 months. As it says in the name, treatment with Six Month Smiles typically takes an average of about six months to straighten the smile.
