Brace yourself for Invisalign: Rethinking Teeth Alignment
Here’s a low-down on Invisalign treatment for teenagers and busy adults who can’t be bothered with downtime:
ENJOY MEAL TIMES AS USUAL. Most common question is how wearing Invisalign affects enjoyment of food. Because Invisalign is removable, you can enjoy your favourite food without any
BETTER BITE. Dental health means your mouth and your teeth function as they should–making your biting and chewing work properly.
FAST AND EFFECTIVE. Unlike traditional wire braces, Invisalign takes on average three to six months depending on the case. Our clients usually come to visit us every 6 or 8 weeks for progress
checks. We recommend wearing Invisalign for most part of your day for faster results. You can remove them when you have a meal or a drink and when brushing.
SLEEP WEARING INVISALIGN. We also recommend wearing your aligners when you sleep as this also acts as a mouth guard for patients who grind their teeth while sleeping. Sleep facing up.
INSURANCE COVERAGE. Most private insurance companies cover orthodontic treatment with Invisalign. If you are not sure, contact Minovi Dental’s insurance administrator to get an assessment.
NO-BRACE FACE. You can wear Invisalign with confidence. Gone are the days when wearing braces meant lesser confidence because wires are unattractive and tend to cause teeth discolouration. The cutting-edge technology behind Invisalign treatment makes it a perfect mouth guard and teeth whitener in one, too! Invisalign is ideal for both teenagers and adults. No downtime at all!
NO-LISP. At least in most cases, our patients tend to have a two-day adjustment once Invisalign treatment starts. This temporary lisp usually goes away after 3 days.
NO SHARP EDGES. No bruises or cuts in your mouth because Invisalign is made of clear plastic and is perfectly comfortable and smooth.
CLEANER TEETH. Yes, you got it. When Invisalign works, your teeth are better aligned, making it easier to clean, brush and floss. Invisalign fixes teeth crowding, bite imperfections (under bite and over bite), and spacing issues. Straight teeth means lesser chance of cavity build-up!
What Happens Before and After Invisalign Treatment
Before your Invisalign treatment, Minovi Dental will run a complete exam and X-ray in order to identify your current teeth’s state and how Invisalign will improve your teeth alignment. Our patients appreciate this because they are able to picture the ‘After’ before they even start their treatment! A custom treatment plan is then prepared together with the aligner that suits you.

After your Invisalign treatment is complete and your invisible braces are removed, we highly recommend wearing a set of removable retainers to keep your straight teeth maintained. The same is
true when you get off traditional braces. Retainers are normally worn throughout the day for up to three or six months after orthodontic treatment.
These are some of the most common advantages of Invisalign over traditional braces. If you would like to know more about teeth alignment, call Minovi Dental at (202) 822-8777.
