I’ve heard there are knock-off Invisalign going around. How can I tell if that’s what I got?

There’s nothing funny about a knock-off. In fact, it is theivery. There are some off brand companies around, but there is an easy way to know if you’ve got the right thing. Look on your aligner. There should be a stamp on it indicating it is Invisalign with their trademark.
There will also be some numbers and letters. They represent your patient ID number. It should also tell you whether it is for your top or bottom teeth.
If it turns out you have been given an off brand, I would confront your dentist about it. You paid for Invisalign and that is what you should get.
