This is an ideal therapy for patients who want straight teeth but not the metal brackets and wires that come with traditional braces. In addition, this is for patients who want a discreet orthodontic experience that does not draw attention to treatment.
However, if you do decide on Invisalign—and your dentist determines that it’s right for you—you want to get the most out of your treatment. So let’s look at a few ways to optimize your Invisalign experience and your results.
Tips to Make the Most of Your Invisible Orthodontics
Following a few simple tips can make all the difference, and we want you to have an excellent experience with Invisalign and optimal results.
Tip #1: Wear Your Aligners for at Least Twenty-Two Hours Per Day
For predictable results, it’s crucial to wear your aligners most of the time. You can remove them for brief periods to clean your teeth and enjoy your meals.
Tip #2: Keep Your Aligners Clean
It’s important to rinse your aligners with room temperature water to keep them free of debris. In addition, you do not want to irritate your teeth and gums while wearing your aligners, so rinsing is essential.
Tip #3: Talk to Your Dentist
If you notice any changes in the fit of your aligners or oral health changes, be sure to consult your dentist as soon as possible. If you have questions during treatment, we also encourage you to get in touch with us.
Tip #4: Wear Your Retainer Following Treatment
At the end of treatment, your dentist provides a custom retainer to keep your teeth in their new positions. It’s essential to wear this aligner to prevent orthodontic relapse.
