Invisalign FAQs

CWD EditorOrthodontics, Bracers & Invisalign

At Cottonwood Dental, we consult with a lot of patients that are interested in Invisalign. Many adults are interested in straightening their teeth and improving their smile, but they don’t want the look of braces. Here are some common questions we are asked about the Invisalign treatment:

Are there restrictions as to what I can eat?

You will be required to remove your aligners when you eat. This is great because you can continue to eat the foods you love without restrictions. You won’t have to worry about food getting stuck in wires or brackets.

Will people notice?

Invisalign aligners are custom made to fit your mouth. They are made with medical grade polyurethane resins that are completely clear. In most people’s experience, no one notices.

How do I care for my Invisalign aligners?

Invisalign recommends using their cleaning system, but as an alternative method, you can brush them and rinse them in lukewarm water.

Dr Giaquinto and the other dental professionals at Cottonwood Dental have found that most patients are extremely happy with their Invisalign results.
