HOW TO PREPARE FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS AND INVISALIGN Smile! “It was my first visit at this office and I’m impressed! The hygienist was very informative and kind. Dr. Edmond Woo was very thorough. In the past, I’ve felt that my dentists only pop in for two seconds and leave, but at this office, I was actually examined by the doctor. You can tell he’s very meticulous.

The only limit you face with Invisalign is that you cannot eat with your aligner in your mouth.

You may need to come up with a food plan with your family for the weeks following your dental implant surgery. Or you may need to set reminders to remove your aligners and to brush after eating with Invisalign. Lean on your loved ones and our team for help!
