If you’re looking to straighten out your smile as quickly and conveniently as possible, Invisalign aligners can be hard to beat. These clear plastic trays are powerful enough to address all kinds of misalignment, and they’re subtle enough that most people won’t even be able to tell that you’re wearing them.

If that sounds interesting, here are answers to some of the most common questions people have about Invisalign aligners.

How Long Do I Have to Wear Them?

Invisalign aligners are removable, which means that you can avoid the dietary restrictions that come with traditional braces. However, it’s also the case that Invisalign aligners only work for you while you’re wearing them, so you should try and do that as much as possible.

It’s strongly recommended that you wear your Invisalign aligners for 20-22 hours a day to get the most out of them. This means that you’ll only really be taking them off to eat and clean them afterward.

Will People Notice My Invisalign Aligners?

One of the things that prospective Invisalign patients worry most about is whether people will be able to tell that they’re wearing them. While it may seem hard to believe, it really is almost impossible for people to tell you have Invisalign aligners on your teeth, especially if you don’t mention it.

Of course, it’s possible for your aligners to become discolored if you don’t care for them well. Food stains will make it more apparent that you have something on your teeth, so if you want to enjoy the subtly that Invisalign offers you should work hard to keep your aligners clean.

Will Aligners Affect How I Talk?

You might have heard that Invisalign aligners can have an impact on how people speak, which has some truth to it. It’s common for people to have to get used to talking normally with their trays in, and for them to have a lisp for a few weeks while they adapt.

However, that should get better with time and practice. Talk carefully when wearing your aligners and you’ll be both beautiful and articulate in no time.
