Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten teeth, so the patients don’t deal with wires or brackets. Instead, they are provided with a series of clear aligners. There clear aligners are removable and custom-made to fit your mouth. You will be given a new set of aligners every two weeks and by simply wearing them over the teeth, your teeth will gradually shift into place, helping you achieve that beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. Nothing shows confidence like a bright, beautiful smile.
In order to achieve excellent results and improve your treatment experience, we would like to share with you some tips.
First of all, you have to make sure you are wearing your aligners according to the recommendations of your orthodontist. Invisalign is known to treat mild to severe cases, including underbite, overbite, overcrowding and gaps between teeth. If you have a goal to finish your Invisalign treatment on time, you need to follow the instructions of your orthodontist.
Secondly, always remember to brush after meals and snacks. Don’t eat in your trays, as later on they will smell and taste as food. Another tip to keep away from snacking too often throughout the day is yo use chewies to seat clear aligners. Exercising 10-15 minutes a day, by chewing soft plastic chewies will help the Invisalign trays to hug your teeth and will reduce your desire to have another snack.
Thirdly, when you do intense cardio, we recommend you to remove the trays. Running in Invisalign trays make it difficult because if dryness and spit. Additionally, it make it hard to dispel extra saliva.
Finally, if you have an important meeting or you have to give an important speech, delay the aligner change on few days, so you have time to get used to the new tray and feel comfortable.
