Invisalign FAQ


The invisible, clear way to straighten teeth! Invisalign at Woburn Sands Dental Practice in Milton Keynes can provide you with the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Invisalign braces are one of the most popular and often most effective forms of orthodontics available today. These can often be an integral component of a total smile makeover. Straight teeth can be a dream of yours. Come and visit Wilson House Dental Practice to meet with one of our skilled Invisalign dentists today!

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a clear braces treatment that straightens your teeth without you having to be uncomfortable. With Invisalign, you only need to wear your aligners for an average of 22 hours a day and take them out for meals or when brushing and flossing. Invisalign is a great choice for many people because it offers an alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment such as metal braces or surgical intervention.

Rather than tooth impressions, with Invisalign, a clear plastic tray is created and fitted over your teeth. These trays, over time, will position your teeth for improved aesthetic outcomes.

We offer an effective and discrete solution to these issues. Invisalign is a more discreet method for correcting the teeth than metal braces that create a semi-permanent fixture in the mouth for a lengthy period of time. The Invisalign system relies on a series of clear aligners, worn only two weeks at a time, to gradually pull teeth into a more natural, comfortable position.

The Invisalign Process

  • Assessment
    The first step is to discuss Invisalign with your dentist to determine if you are a suitable candidate. The next step is taking a 3D scan of your teeth, gums, and jaw to calculate your prescription. To create your aligners, your dentist will send your treatment plan to a specialist laboratory.
  • Treatment
    After two weeks, you will swap to the next aligner in the series to continue your treatment. Each aligner will be worn for 20-22 hours a day for two weeks, only taking them out to eat, brush, and floss. The progress you make will be monitored every four to six weeks through check-ups.
  • Retention
    In order to prevent your teeth from relapsing into their original, misaligned position, your dentist will fit a retainer to allow your periodontal ligaments to reshape.

How does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign is a system of cosmetic orthodontics that uses a series of clear, nearly invisible aligners to gradually move your teeth. The aligners are made from a smooth, comfortable plastic that you wear over your teeth and then remove for eating and brushing. Invisalign gradually moves your teeth without metal wires or brackets that would be noticeable to others. Your dentist will work closely with you to monitor your progress so that any necessary adjustments can be made along the way.

Invisalign Benefits 

  • Cleanliness
    An Invisalign patient’s tray can be removed for cleaning; you can brush with the tray still in the mouth and get the backs of the teeth. It’s easier to fight the germs that harm your oral health when you have a clean mouth. You’ll be in better shape after the treatment, too.
  • Eat Whatever You Want
    Invisalign aligners can be removed when you eat so you can partake in any food that you want without having any pain or hassles.
  • Fast Treatment Time
    Orthodontic treatments like Invisalign need to be revisited on average every six weeks. Other teeth straightening options can take a lot longer and will require a lot more visits to the orthodontist. You’ll spend less time at the dentist with Invisalign, so you’ll spend less time in the dental chair.
  • Comfort
    Made of lightweight, smooth, plastic, Invisalign is softer, smoother and more comfortable than traditional braces. There are no rough edges or wires, so they’re more comfortable. Take the example of Invisalign braces; they’re made specifically to fit your teeth and mouth and will eventually fit snuggly against them as they grow out over time, so they’ll eventually be virtually unnoticeable.
  • Better Overall Dental Health
    If you don’t have straight teeth, it can be hard to clean your teeth completely because there are so many places your toothbrush just can’t reach. Toothbrush bristles are unable to easily access hard-to-reach, crowded teeth, so they’re more susceptible to dental plaque and decay. The well-being of the teeth benefits the health of the entire body.

Invisalign FAQ 

Can Invisalign Fix an Overbite or Underbite?

Invisalign aligners can fix an overbite or underbite.

Can You Drink Alcohol With Invisalign?

Dental experts recommend that you should avoid drinking alcoholic beverages while wearing your removable aligners.

Can You Smoke With Invisalign?

We highly recommend avoiding smoking both before and after your treatment if you want to get the best possible results.

Does Invisalign Hurt?

Rather than pain, the entire treatment process with Invisalign is designed to be comfortable. Within a couple of weeks, you’ll see that your teeth will naturally reposition without any discomfort, so feel free to reach out if you have any questions about our methods or how things work.

Will Wearing Invisalign Affect My Speech?

As a thin plastic tray that you wear over your teeth, the aligner has no effect on speech. During your time wearing them, your teeth will slowly be altered, correcting any misalignment problems. Some patients may experience difficulty speaking and singing while wearing them; when they get used to the brackets, these issues usually disappear.

How Long Should I Wear My Aligners For?

​​You should wear your Invisalign braces between 20 and 22 hours a day. If you do not wear your aligners for the recommended time it may affect your treatment timeline.
