What's it Like to Have Invisalign?


Many people are opting for Invisalign to correct crooked teeth and obtain the beauty they've always wanted. Because it differs from traditional metal braces, many patients wonder what impact Invisalign will have on their lives.

The team at Frugé Orthodontics is here to answer a few questions that are commonly asked by our Baton Rouge area patients who are considering this treatment.

• Does Invisalign need to be worn 24/7?

While you can remove your Invisalign while eating or for other short periods during the day, it is recommended that patients wear the aligner sets for at least 20hrs per day. It is not sufficient to only wear them while sleeping.

• Do patients experience a lot of discomfort when wearing Invisalign?

Because the aligners work to move the teeth to the right position, it is not unusual to feel some degree of discomfort. The teeth may also feel loose, especially when Invisalign is removed. This is all to be expected, but it is advisable to contact our office if the pain or looseness feels excessive.

• What about eating when undergoing Invisalign treatment?

One of the most popular features of Invisalign is the ability to remove them while eating. This means that no foods are restricted and patients are able to continue on with their regular daily eating habits.
