Living with Invisalign® clear aligners

Live your life, transform your smile.

Invisalign clear aligners fit your life — they don’t interrupt it. And at every stage, you’ll be able to see your progress and enjoy your smile as it transforms.

Don’t stop living your life

  • Keep eating all your favorite foods.

  • Stay active in all the sports and activities you love.

  • Keep brushing and flossing just as you normally do, with no brackets or wires to get in the way.

  • You'll experience fewer emergency visits, without the hassle of brackets and wires breaking.

  • Your Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible, so people may not even notice you’re wearing them.

Wearing your aligners

  • You'll be ready for anything, from movie night to coffee with friends. Just take your aligners out to eat and drink, then brush your teeth before putting them back in.

  • Wear your Invisalign clear aligners 20 to 22 hours a day for best results.

  • Parents, your teen's aligners will have blue compliance indicators to assure you they’re wearing them enough.

Getting new sets of aligners

  • You'll wear each set of aligners for one to two weeks, as prescribed by your doctor.

  • You’ll probably schedule check-ups every six to eight weeks to check your progress and pick up the next batch of aligners. Fewer doctor visits mean more time to enjoy life.

  • When you start wearing each new set of aligners, you may feel a little extra pressure or discomfort for the first few days, which is totally normal.

Cleaning your aligners

  • Rinse your aligners every night and brush them gently with your toothbrush to keep them fresh and clean.

  • Use the Invisalign cleaning system to keep your aligners clear.
