Most Frequently Asked Questions about Invisalign


  • Can I go to any orthodontist or dentist to be treated with Invisalign?

    Precise training is needed to use Invisalign, consequently, orthodontists and dentists are required to become Invisalign-certified before they can begin treating patients with Invisalign. The dentists at Dentajoy are certainly well qualified since Dentajoy is the the only Invisalign provider with the status of Blue Diamond Provider awarded by Invisalign.
  • How much does Invisalign cost?

    As with other types of orthodontic treatment, the cost of Invisalign is dependent on the complexity of a patient's case. We have several financing options to help you fit Invisalign into your budget.
  • What is the minimum age of a patient that can be treated with Invisalign?

    The dentists at Dentajoy can use Invisalign to treat a vast majority of patients from adolescents to adults with fully-erupted second molars.
  • Are there certain dental conditions that automatically exclude you from being an eligible patient?

    Leave that to us. We can best determine which treatment is best for you after a consultation in our office at our Dentajoy branches throughout Thailand.
  • How many patients are being treated with Invisalign?

    At present doctors are treating more than 40,000 patients. The number grows daily.
  • I am currently wearing braces - can I make the switch to Invisalign?

    Doctors are treating patients with some form of combination of braces and Invisalign. We recommend that you consult your orthodontist or dentist to determine the best treatment for you.
  • Can Invisalign close gaps (space closure)?

    Yes. Spaces between teeth are generally easy to close with the Invisalign System.
  • Will the treatment be painful?

    Most people experience temporary, minor discomfort for a few days at the beginning of each new stage of treatment. This is normal and is usually described as a feeling of pressure. It is a sign that Invisalign is working - gradually moving your teeth to their final destination. This uneasiness goes away a couple of days after you insert the new aligner in the series.
  • Are there restrictions on what I can eat while in treatment?

    No. Unlike conventional wires & brackets, you can eat whatever you like while in treatment because you remove your Aligners to eat and drink. Therefore, there is no need to restrict your favorite foods and snacks, unless instructed otherwise by your doctor. Additionally, it is important that you brush your teeth after each meal to maintain proper hygiene.
  • Will smoking stain the aligners?

    We discourage smoking while wearing Aligners because it is possible for the Aligners to become discolored or damaged.
  • Can I chew gum while wearing aligners?

    No, gum will stick to the Aligners. We recommend removing your Aligners for all meals and snacks.
  • What's the best way to clean my aligners?

    The best way to clean your Aligners is by brushing and rinsing them in lukewarm water.
  • What happens after treatment to prevent my teeth from moving again?

    This depends on the outcome of the treatment. Some patients might need a positioner, or conventional retainer. Other patients might need a clear plastic retainer similar to the ones Invisalign makes. We will discuss the possibilities with you. Every patient is different and outcomes vary since how the patient look after their teeth after the treatment will affect unwanted future movement possibilities.
  • Will wearing Invisalign effect my speech?

    Similar to all orthodontic treatments, aligners may temporarily affect the speech of some people, and you may have a slight lisp for a short period of time. However, as your tongue gets used to having aligners in your mouth, any lisp or minor speech impediment caused by the aligners should disappear upon familiarization. Depite the minor impediments, this is currently the orthodontic treatment that imposes the least speech impediments.
