Yes, innumerable people worldwide have had their teeth aligned with Invisalign (and other clear aligners). In short, if done well, they work. Wear them all the time and stick to your dentist’s advice to get the best result.
Yes, you can, though malocclusion is a very broad term and few kinds of malocclusion maybe more difficult to treat than the others hence you need to be assessed by your Invisalign dentist first.
Your aligners need to be worn all the time except at meal time for best result. So to answer, Yes, you can and in fact we recommend that you wear your aligners while you are enjoying your beach time (just don’t lose them!).
Yes, you may. It may actually be of benefit to do so, as you really want your aligners (or retainers) to stay really clean. If you have to swim in the ocean, feel free to swim with your aligners on. Its best to rinse the aligners with fresh water thoroughly afterwards though.
If proper instructions are not followed, its possible to cause some damage to your teeth. Hence its best that your aligner treatment is performed by your Invisalign dentist and you visit them for a review at regular intervals.
This is a common mistake people make. Do not put your aligner in hot water, instead use only lukewarm water to clean them. Very hot water can damage your aligner, which in turn can lead to an ill-fitting aligner and hence delaying your overall treatment.
Your aligners will work best if worn for as long as possible. The instructions are that you take your aligners out only at meal time or to drink anything except water, brush your teeth and put the aligners back. There isn’t any set limit on how often can you take your aligners out to do so.
No. If you follow the instructions and wear the aligners correctly, Invisalign shouldn’t discolour your teeth. If you drink coffee or soft drinks with your aligners on, this may lead to damaging your teeth.
