Patient Education


Invisalign can ONLY move your teeth if it is in your mouth ☺. We recommend that you wear your Aligners at least 20 out of 24 hours day and night, except to eat, brush and floss your teeth.
Because the Aligners are designed to sequentially move your teeth, it is very important to wear each Aligner in the order prescribed. You’ll wear each Aligner for the amount of time prescribed by our doctors and then change to your new Aligner.
Keep your regularly scheduled appointments – this is the only way we can be sure the treatment is progressing as planned. Frequently, for patients with busy schedules, a greater number of Aligners may be given at each appointment and appointment intervals can be extended as long as the patient is compliant.

To help avoid confusion, each Aligner is engraved with a ‘U’ for upper or an ‘L’ for lower and the number of the Aligner. When inserting, gently push the Aligner over your front teeth. Then, apply equal pressure. using your fingertips, to the tops of your left and right molars until the Aligner snaps into place.

Store Your Invisalign Aligners in the two Aligner cases which are included in your starter kit. We recommend that you store your Invisalign Aligners in your plastic case when not in your mouth. This will protect them from potential damage. Also, do not bite your Aligners into position. This may damage them.

Use your fingers, and simultaneously apply equal downward pressure on the left and right side of the Aligner and lift it off your rear molars. Then using your fingers, gently lift the Aligner off your front teeth. Immediately rinse and store your Aligners in the protective case provided with your starter kit. To help prevent damage, avoid unnecessary removal.
