Frequently Asked Questions

Most people experience tooth soreness for a few days after staring each new stage of treatment. This is normal and it is a sign that the Invisalign aligners are working, moving your teeth to their final desired position. This soreness should gradually go away a couple of days after inserting eht new aligners in the series. If it does not, promptly call your doctor.
Like all orthodontic treatments, the aligners may temporarily affect your speech, and you may have a slight lisp for a day or two. However , as your tongue gets used to having aligners in your mouth, any lisp or minor speech impediment caused by your aligners should disappear.
Aligners are virtually invisible and discreet, so most people will not even notice that you are wearing them.
The length of your treatment will depend on your specific needs and will be determined by your doctor. However the average treatment for an adult is about 12-18 months. The length of time for treatment of a teenager may vary and will be determined by your doctor.
Invisalign results start to show a few months after starting treatment.
Not everyone requires extractions as part of their treatment, however, this will depend on the type of correction you require. Please consult your doctor if you have any questions regarding whether extractions are required as part of your treatment.

By inserting the mouthpiece around your existing orthodontics and turning on the Activator for 20 minutes every day, AcceleDent Aura can speed up tooth movement by using SoftPulse Technology which releases a safe, effective and gentle pulsation that transmits through the roots of your teeth to the surrounding bone socket.

This helps accelerate the cellular response and speeds the rate of tooth movement. AcceleDent has been clinically proven to move teeth up to 50% faster. This can reduce the duration of your orthodontic treatment – and can even help to make your treatment more comfortable.
