Is The Plastic Used in Invisalign Safe?

Pittsburgh Invisalign DentistThese days, patients are more savvy than ever, and people are increasingly concerned about ingesting chemicals or other foreign materials. Because Invisalign® clear plastic aligners are still relatively new, many of our Pittsburgh-area patients express concerns about the materials used in the creation of these aligners. Is this plastic safe?

The answer is an unqualified yes. Invisalign® aligners are completely safe. They’re made from medical grade polyurethane resin and do not contain bisphenol-A, an industrial chemical better known as “BPA.”

Furthermore, Invisalign® has been approved by the FDA since 1998. These aligners are constructed according to the highest possible standards, and test after test after has shown that Invisalign® does not pose a danger to your health or well-being. This is also true for pregnant women – you can wear Invisalign® with complete confidence that the aligners will not put your baby in danger.

Of course, we understand you still have lots of questions about Invisalign®, and we welcome those questions. We want you to be completely comfortable with any procedure you undergo at our office, and that means answering your questions and addressing your concerns.
