Invisalign enables you to boldly embrace life's moments, from eating your favorite foods without limitation to maintaining your  dental hygiene with ease. Experience Invisalign's revolutionary advantages and world of possibilities for your smile and overall lifestyle. 

What Makes Invisalign A Good Choice?

Invisalign has become popular for straightening teeth due to its numerous advantages over traditional braces. With Invisalign aligners, you can enjoy a more discreet treatment option, possibly shorter overall treatment time, the convenience of removable aligners, the ability to maintain good quality oral hygiene, comfortable wear, and fewer required dental visits.

1. Can you eat with Invisalign, including chewing gum?

With Invisalign, you can enjoy a wide variety of foods and even chew gum! Remember to remove your Invisalign clear aligners beforehand , regardless of the size of your meal or snack. The aligners are not designed to withstand the pressure of biting and chewing, so taking them out is important to avoid damage and potential treatment delays.

2. Can you smoke or vape with Invisalign?

Yes. You can smoke while using Invisalign, but remember to remove your aligners beforehand. Smoking with aligners on can lead to discoloration of the trays due to nicotine and tar. To prevent stains, always take out your aligners when smoking. However, it is advisable to quit smoking during Invisalign treatment. Smoking not only poses oral and general health risks but also has the potential to damage the structure of Invisalign, reducing its effectiveness.

3. What can you drink  with Invisalign?

It's generally acceptable to enjoy most of your favorite beverages. While wearing aligners, drinking water is permissible. However, for beverages such as coffee, red wine, or tea that can stain the clear aligners, it's important to take them out. After drinking, rinse your mouth with water before reinserting the aligners.

4. Can Invisalign be fitted over crowns?

Yes. You can still undergo Invisalign treatment if you have crowns. Invisalign aligners are designed to fit over and around crowned teeth, allowing for proper alignment. The movement of crowned teeth during treatment is similar to that of teeth without crowns. Sometimes, a small attachment may be bonded to a tooth to guide it in the desired direction. These tooth-colored attachments serve as grips for the aligners, ensuring effective tooth shifting throughout your Invisalign treatment.

5. Can you whiten teeth with Invisalign?

Yes. You can whiten your teeth while using Invisalign aligners, it's advisable to consult your dentist for guidance. For optimal results, it's recommended to consider teeth whitening after completing your Invisalign treatment.

6. Can you get Invisalign with missing teeth?

Yes. You can get Invisalign aligners even if you have missing teeth. Dentists usually advise getting Invisalign before restorative dental work. Straightening and closing gaps in your teeth should be done first to ensure there is enough space for replacements. Adjacent teeth can shift towards the gap, making it challenging to fit a replacement tooth if they are crowded or crooked.

7. Can you kiss with Invisalign?

You can kiss while wearing Invisalign aligners. Invisalign aligners are much more discreet than traditional metal braces, so there's no need to worry about lips or tongues getting caught in metal brackets. 

8. Can you get Invisalign with wisdom teeth?

    Yes. You can get Invisalign even if you have wisdom teeth. Patients with wisdom teeth can still benefit from removable clear aligners. In some cases, Invisalign treatment can be successful even if the patient has asymptomatic wisdom teeth, meaning the wisdom teeth don't cause any issues.

    Invisalign treatment offers a world of possibilities for transforming your smile. With its discreet design and flexibility, you can enjoy your favorite foods and maintain your oral hygiene routine with ease. Say goodbye to metal braces and embrace the freedom of Invisalign today.
