by | Sep 29, 2016 | Orthodontics

So you’ve decided that the Invisalign trays which are virtually invisible when worn, removable for mealtimes / cleaning and are a discreet, convenient, modern alternative to traditional metal braces; sounds like the ideal way to achieve your perfect smile?

During your first consultation with your doctor at Monalisa Dental Centre, you will discuss many things about your Invisalign treatment plan and it may be easy to forget some of the questions you wanted to ask. To make sure you’re fully prepared, the doctors are prepared to answer any of the questions you may have, below are some common questions patients ask:

ADULTS

  • Please explain the treatment process. How does it move my teeth?
  • With my case, about how long will my treatment last?
  • How often will I have to visit your office?
  • How much will it cost, and are there payment options?
  • What restrictions will I have when it comes to eating?
  • Will wearing Invisalign aligners affect my speech?
  • What happens after Invisalign treatment is done? Will I need to wear a retainer? Why are Vivera® retainers my best retention option?

PARENTS

  • How does Invisalign fit into my teen’s life in terms of eating, school, sports and other activities?
  • I’m afraid my teen might lose or break an aligner. How much extra will this cost me? My teen doesn’t have all of his/her permanent teeth yet. How does Invisalign work in this case?
  • How do I know that my teen is wearing the aligners as recommended/prescribed?
  • What happens after Invisalign treatment is done? Will my teen need to wear a retainer? Why are Vivera retainers the best retention option for my teen?

  • Will wearing Invisalign aligners affect my speech?
