Invisalign Maintenance

It’s important to keep your Invisalign in good shape for the continuous support of your oral health. Continue at-home care such as regular brushing, flossing, and cleaning your aligners.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign Mobile

Invisalign aligners are worn for about two weeks until the teeth have moved to their desired positions. The aligners are custom-crafted for you based on your specific needs and the shape of your teeth and jaw. Invisalign is a common alternative to braces that is more flexible and less invasive.

What Is Invisalign Made of?

Invisalign is made out of a plastic called polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA). These medical-grade thermoplastics are highly durable trays designed to be biocompatible with a human mouth.

Discreet Teeth Straightening

At Eagle Harbor Dentist we know that it may not be the most appealing to have braces as an adult. Braces are thicker and more visually obvious than Invisalign. If you think your oral health or confidence could be improved with straighter teeth, but don’t want everyone who sees you smile to know, you can discreetly straighten your teeth with Invisalign over time.

Braces vs. Invisalign

Teeth correction doesn’t just improve your smile. It can also decrease discomfort and pain that can occur when teeth aren’t aligned properly or if they’re crowding together. Plus, it can help to prevent future dental injuries. There are two main orthodontic options for correcting your teeth: braces and Invisalign.

Who Should Get Braces?

Braces are often the best choice for younger folks because they can correct even more major problems. They also are affixed to the teeth so patients don’t have to remember to put them back in after eating. On the other hand, braces are visually obvious and food can get stuck in them or even break them.

Who Should Get Invisalign?

Invisalign could also be an approach to consider if the adjustments needed are more minor. Invisalign won’t be as visually obvious as braces but isn’t as effective in correcting major issues. Another benefit of Invisalign is that there aren’t restrictions on what you can eat because you take the retainer out at meals.

How it works

How the Invisalign Process Works

Before you decide that you want Invisalign, you should know what the process is like.

Step 1:


If you’re considering getting Invisalign, you’ll need to consult with a dental professional. During the consultation, the dentist will listen to your concerns and examine your teeth to figure out if Invisalign would be the best way to help you achieve your goals.

Step 2:

Discuss Your Options

In some cases, you may be better off getting traditional braces to achieve your teeth straightening goals. The dentist may use a computer program to show you how the Invisalign process would look so that you can make an informed decision.

Step 3:

Prepare Your Teeth

If you and the dentist agree that Invisalign is the best option, the dentist will first clean your teeth so that when we make a mold, the Invisalign retainer will fit properly.

Step 4:

Take an Impression

We’ll then take an impression of your teeth. This is what will be used to create the Invisalign retainer so that it sits perfectly in your mouth.

Step 5:

Create the Invisalign

After we’ve taken impressions of your teeth, we’ll send those off to a lab where the Invisalign will be created and customized to match the teeth exactly.

Step 6:

Fit the Invisalign

We’ll schedule the second appointment after we’ve received the Invisalign from the lab. At this time, we’ll fit them to your teeth to make sure that the fit works well and is comfortable.

Step 7:

Take the Invisalign Home

Once we’re certain that Invisalign is the right fit, we’ll have you take them home and begin use.

Step 8:

Maintain the Invisalign

Most of the maintenance of the Invisalign will be on your at-home care. It’ll be important to practice good oral health habits and take the Invisalign out before eating to keep the retainer in good shape.

Step 9:

Tips for Invisalign Maintenance

The following are some tips for keeping your Invisalign in good shape

  • Clean the Invisalign aligners regularly.
  • Rinse them each time you take them out to remove excess saliva.
  • Do not eat with Invisalign in the mouth.
  • Keep the Invisalign stored in a case when not in use.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many appointments does it take to get a dental bridge?

A dental bridge usually takes two appointments to administer. On your first visit, our dentists will determine that a bridge is the right choice for you by assessing your teeth and taking X-Rays. Once you have decided on the treatment plan, a temporary bridge will be cemented. About two weeks later, you’ll come back for the removal of the temporary bridge and the cementation of the permanent bridge.

How do I take care of and clean my dental bridge?

Your normal oral hygiene routine won’t be strongly affected by your new dental bridge. We still recommend daily flossing and brushing, but the flossing may require you to floss underneath the bridge to keep the area clean. Your dentist and dental hygienist will show you the proper way to do this during your final appointment.

How long do dental bridges last for?

With proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits, your dental bridge should last anywhere between 10-15 years.

Do I have to take my dental bridge out at night?

A dental bridge is permanent, meaning you never remove it.
