What Is Invisalign Treatment?
At Garcia Orthodontics, we are proud to offer Invisalign as an alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign works by using a series of clear aligners to shift teeth into the desired position gradually. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible and removable for easy cleaning and eating with little to no restriction. The aligners are custom-made to fit the patient’s teeth and work through gentle pressure placed on the teeth.
At Garcia Orthodontics, we believe in utilizing the most advanced technology to provide our patients with the best orthodontic care available. Therefore, we have chosen to offer Invisalign treatment as an option for our patients. With Invisalign treatment, you’ll enjoy a comfortable and easy-to-maintain treatment that won’t interfere with your lifestyle.

Who Is A Candidate For Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment is suitable for adults, teens, and children with a wide range of orthodontic issues. Invisalign is an excellent option for those who want to avoid the hassle of traditional metal braces or may need minor tooth movement corrections. Our Garcia Orthodontics team can help determine if Invisalign is the right option for you.
How Do I Care For My Aligners?
Taking care of your Invisalign aligners is simple – with just a few easy steps, you can keep them in their best condition. Of course, brushing and flossing your teeth is always essential for maintaining oral hygiene, but it’s even more critical when you’re wearing Invisalign. Additionally, rinsing with lukewarm water each time you take out your aligners helps eliminate any food particles that build up. And don’t forget to store them in the provided case when they’re not in use – this prevents damage and keeps them sanitary.
If you have any questions or concerns about caring for your aligners, our team at Garcia Orthodontics is always here to help. We can provide tips and advice on the best care for and maintain your Invisalign treatment.
How Long Should I Wear My Aligners Every Day?
Wearing your aligners for the recommended 20-22 hours daily is essential to your orthodontic treatment. Failing to do so can cause significant setbacks and delay the progress of your teeth’ alignment, resulting in a much longer treatment time. Though it may take considerable effort to adhere to this requirement, doing so will ensure that you get the best and quickest results from your orthodontic treatment. Remember, the more dedication you show in wearing your aligners properly, the sooner you’ll be able to enjoy a new straight smile!
Does Invisalign Hurt?
Most patients report that Invisalign treatment is comfortable and doesn’t cause pain. Many people find the aligners to be much more comfortable than metal braces. As your teeth shift over time, there may be some mild discomfort or pressure, but this is normal and should pass quickly.
Will Wearing Invisalign Clear Aligners Affect My Speech?
The answer is usually no; for the vast majority of patients, all it takes is just a few days of wearing the aligners before their speech returns to normal. However, if you have been wearing Invisalign aligners for a couple of weeks now and are still experiencing difficulty with your speech, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our Garcia Orthodontics team to help address any problems that may arise. With decades of experience in the professional orthodontics field, our goal is always to ensure every patient leaves with healthy, properly aligned smiles.
