Invisalign®

Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place. There are no brackets and no wires. Simply pop in a new set of aligners every two weeks until treatment is complete. Most people won’t even know you’re in the middle of treatment!

Cases

  • Blue case is for current set of aligners
  • Red case is for the previous week’s set of aligners
  • Keep cases out of reach of children and pets

Changing Aligners

  • After three weeks, remove aligners and put them into the red case to be saved.
  • Place next stage of aligners in mouth
  • After an additional two weeks, the next set of aligners should be put in the red case. The previous set can be put in a Ziploc bag. Keep all sets of aligners.
  • Place next stage of aligners in mouth
  • Aligners stages should not be skipped or accelerated

Instructions for Use

The aligners should be:

  • Worn at all times, except when eating, drinking, brushing and flossing
  • Cleaned gently with a toothbrush and toothpaste when they are removed
  • Stored in the blue Invisalign case when they are not being worn
  • Always stored in a cool, dry place
  • Keep away from boiling water, bleach and other extreme cleansers

Consult Dr. Bernstein prior to receiving dental restorations as this may affect the fit of aligners.
