Getting the Best Results from Invisalign Treatment

Dec 16, 2018

Have you been considering orthodontic treatment to improve your smile? Interested in an option that is discrete and quick? Invisalign is a wonderful option for those looking to improve their smile and has many benefits over the alternative treatment options.

About Invisalign

Invisalign is a newer orthodontic treatment option which uses clear aligners to gently shift teeth into a new position. These clear aligners are custom-made per patient and are to be worn in a series, one after another. With Invisalign, the clear aligners can be removed so that patients to eat, drink and even care for their smile. It is recommended however that Invisalign aligners are worn at least 22 hours a day for the best results.

Tips for the Best Invisalign Results

When it comes to getting the most out of your Katy Invisalign treatment, there are some important steps you can take, which include:

Wear Aligners as Directed

As mentioned above, Invisalign aligners are designed to be able to be removed, however, it is important to make sure you wear them as directed. Your aligners should be worn a minimum of 22 hours a day, wearing them longer will result in quicker results.

Properly Clean Your Aligners

Along with properly wearing your aligners, keeping them clean is also highly important. As you wear your aligners throughout the day, bacteria, plaque, and debris can build up on the aligner, increasing your risk for tooth decay and cavities. We recommend using Dawn to gently wash your aligners daily, making sure that they are clean. Do not use toothpaste or a toothbrush when cleaning your aligners, it may cause damage.

Care For Your Smile

Caring for your smile during Invisalign treatment is also highly important. Following any meals or beverages (besides) water, you should be cleaning your smile before putting your aligners back in.
