Invisalign

Maintenance

After you begin your Invisalign treatment, you will attend an appointment about every six weeks.

Your trays should be worn for twenty to twenty-two hours a day, and can be removed during eating, brushing, and flossing.

Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks, and as you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move gradually and gently into their final, straightened positions. The average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30.

Dr. Allen and his team will assess your estimated treatment time and provide you with costs and more maintenance information at the time of your consultation.

Cleaning

To clean Invisalign trays, Dr. Allen recommends using one of the following techniques:

  1. Cleanse.Freshen.Go, used as directed (persulfate-free cleaner)
  2. DentaSoak, used as directed (persulfate-free cleaner)
  3. 50/50 solution of water and hydrogen peroxide (15 minute soak)
  4. Retainer Brite, used as directed
  5. Invisalign cleaning crystals (specifically designed product)

Don't soak in mouthwash or heated liquid of any form.

Thanks Dr.Allen!

“Getting braces was an experience. All the assistants were very kind and helpful. Dr. Allen always had something funny to say. I knew my teeth would end up as straight as an arrow because Dr. Allen is a perfectionist. The best part was definitely getting my braces off and seeing how straight and perfect my teeth were. All I could say was “Wow, maybe Dr. Allen knew what he was doing after all.”

- Thanks Dr.Allen!
