At Morita Orthodontics, we offer our patients a wide array of orthodontic treatment options to ensure we can meet the specific needs of each of patient we serve. One of the most popular treatment options we offer is the innovative Invisalign System aka the clear alternative to braces. This treatment option consists of a series of clear, removable aligners that are designed to comfortably and conveniently move teeth into their desired positions. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about Invisalign along with the answers.
No. Unlike regular braces, you can eat all the foods you normally do as long as you take the aligners out before eating. Remember to brush your teeth (and the aligners) before putting your aligners back in.Back to Top
There is a short adjustment period when first getting started with Invisalign just as there is with other orthodontic treatment options. However, the more you speak while wearing the aligners, the quicker you will adjust.Back to Top
You will feel some pressure and minor discomfort for a day or two after each initial insertion. This is a sign that your teeth are moving into their new positions so it’s normal to feel some pressure and minor discomfort.Back to Top
All orthodontic patients are told to wear their retainers at night indefinitely. Wearing your retainer as directed by our Aiea & Honolulu orthodontists will help ensure you have a healthy and straight smile that will last you a lifetime.Back to Top
