What You Need to Know About Invisalign
Invisalign and clear aligners have several benefits. First, they are nearly invisible. This allows you to maintain your normal appearance while undergoing orthodontic treatment. Whether you are a teenager who is conscious of your image at school or an adult who would prefer to maintain your professional appearance at work, Invisalign and clear aligners are great options. Clear aligners are also removable, letting you straighten your smile without changing your lifestyle. And last but not least, clear aligners are more affordable than ever.
At Post Falls Orthodontics, you can save significantly on Invisalign — we offer clear aligner treatment for $4995 with monthly payments of just $129. A lab fee of $1,000 is required at the time of signing up for clear aligners.
What is Invisalign?
- An alternative orthodontic treatment to traditional braces
- Virtually invisible, and removable
- Progressive series of custom-manufactured aligners
- No metal wires, bands or brackets needed
- Comfortable, efficient and convenient – perfect for teens, college students and adults!
How Invisalign and clear aligners work
Each set of aligners move your teeth in small increments until the final, desired position is achieved. Clear aligners should only be taken out to eat, brush and floss … and maybe for a special photo op.
Our patients also often find Invisalign and clear aligners to be more comfortable than metal braces. To discover the advantages of Invisalign and clear aligners for yourself, we welcome you to contact our skilled orthodontist today!
An Aligner Just for Teens
For quite some time clear aligners for adults have been available, but until recently they weren’t recommended for teens in most cases. Why not? For two main reasons:
- It was thought that teens wouldn’t always wear them for the recommended 22 hours per day
- Since many teens have some permanent teeth still erupting (emerging from below the gums), the precisely planned movement of the teeth might be disturbed.
Luckily, technology has the answer. To ensure teenagers wear them for the recommended time per day, we have added “compliance indicators” located on the aligners themselves. These colored dots fade over time as the aligners are worn, showing whether or not you’ve followed the plan. In addition, these aligners are made especially for teens as they now come with “eruption tabs” built in. These tabs are designed to hold space for teeth that have not yet fully erupted.

FAQs from Dr. Clint Wire
Because each patient is different, treatment time with Invisalign varies. You could be in treatment for as little as 6 months or as long as 24 months – it all depends on the specific type of orthodontic problem you have and how compliant you are wearing your aligners and keeping your scheduled appointments.
Yes. In order for Invisalign to work as it’s designed, you must wear your aligners for up to 22 hours each day. You can remove them when eating and when brushing & flossing. You can also take them out temporarily for those special occasions such as interviews or school photos as long as you put them right back in afterward.
Invisalign aligners are designed to be removed when eating. One of the greatest benefits associated with Invisalign is the fact that there are no food restrictions whatsoever. You can continue enjoying all your favorite foods including hard-crusted breads, corn-on-the-cob, etc. as long as you take your aligners out before eating, but be sure to at least rinse, if not brush and rinse, before replacing your Invisalign trays. Any foods with color or food coloring (coffee, tea, red sauce, curry, sodas) can be on your teeth and slowly stain your attachments and/or trays.
When you first start wearing Invisalign, you may notice that your speech is not as clear as it normally is. This is nothing to panic about, as you simply must get used to wearing the aligners. Just spend a bit of time speaking or singing out loud while wearing your aligners and before you know it, your speech will return to normal.
No, chewing gum is not a good idea because it will stick to your aligners and make a big mess.
