Can I Sleep Whilst Wearing Invisalign?

Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Hampton, Portsmouth - VA

Invisalign® technology has dramatically altered our perception of what the experience of undergoing orthodontic adjustment can be. No longer are Virginia Beach-area residents forced to endure uncomfortable tightening appointments or the feeling of uncomfortable metal wires jabbing into their gums and cheeks.

Your clear plastic aligners will fit snugly and comfortably over your teeth while subtly shifting them to a more comfortable, natural and aesthetically pleasing position.

We have found that Invisalign® offers its best results when you wear your aligners for between 20 and 22 hours a day. This means that you can indeed wear them while you sleep.

The vast majority of our patients report no problems with their aligners while they sleep. Because the aligners are custom-designed for the specific and unique shape of your teeth, they don’t slip off.

We understand you probably have questions about how Invisalign® works and how your aligners will affect your life. We’re happy to answer your questions. And most of our patients find that their lifestyles are not meaningfully affected by their aligners.

If you live in the Virginia Beach, Virginia area and you want to learn more about Invisalign®, please call Dr. Michael Folck, DDS today at 757-428-7440 for a consultation.
