Invisalign FAQ

Questions About Our Tulsa, OK Invisalign Treatment?

Whether you are considering Invisalign or are already in treatment, it is important to understand how these removable clear aligners work. Our goal is to provide you with enough information about the treatment, so that you feel comfortable and well-informed about the decisions you make for your oral health. Throughout his years as a Tulsa, OK orthodontist, Dr. Robert Herman has performed amazing results with the Invisalign® treatment for patients of all ages. After talking with various patients, we decided to compile a list of frequently asked questions in hopes it will answer any general concerns you may have about the treatment.

Already An Invisalign Patient?

  • How do I keep my aligners clean?
    Brushing them with toothpaste will keep them fresh and clean.
  • How often do I see an orthodontist while wearing Invisalign?
    Regular office visits are every five to six weeks. This will ensure that your InvisalignⓇ treatment is progressing as planned.
  • What happens after my treatment is complete? Do I need retainers?
    All orthodontic patients are instructed to wear their retainers at night indefinitely. Sleeping with your retainers in at night will ensure a healthy bite and maintain the new position of your teeth.
  • Does Invisalign work for kids?
    Yes, if their teeth, including second molars, have grown in completely.

Eating & Drinking With Invisalign

  • Are there any restrictions to what I can eat while in treatment?
    No, there are no food restrictions. Unlike braces, you may eat whatever you like as long as you remove the aligners before eating. It is important to brush your teeth and the aligners after you eat.
  • Can I chew gum?
    It is recommended that you remove your aligners prior to chewing gum as the gum will stick to the aligners.
  • Can I smoke with the aligners in?
    We discourage smoking with aligners as the cigarette smoke will tend to discolor them.
