Tips for Using Invisalign®
Invisalign is a great alternative to braces. Some people are self-conscious about their smile but don’t want to wear braces for months to improve it.
The good thing about Invisalign® is that most people won’t be able to notice that you’re getting your teeth treated at all. Invisalign® uses clear plastic trays instead of wires and brackets. It might take a few days to get used to the first set of trays, but they will soon become part of your everyday routine!
Here are some tips to help you with Invisalign®:
You must keep your aligners in as much as possible. It is very important that you wear your Invisalign® aligner trays most of the day and night. You can take them out to eat, but you should wear them whenever you are not eating. They are most effective if you wear them at least twenty-two hours a day.
Always carry a toothbrush. You will need to brush your teeth after all of your meals including breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It is also important that you don’t forget to clean your trays.
Avoid sugary foods and drinks that may stain your enamel. Anything that you eat or drink will stain your aligners. Because of this, you should remove your trays when you are eating.
Prepare for a long treatment. The average treatment takes a year. However, some people see results sooner while others may require a longer treatment.
Remember that it is all worth it. The treatment process may seem like hassle, but in the end you will be happy with your new and improved smile!
Invisalign® is an amazing new way to get the smile you deserve. All it takes is a little dedication, and you can achieve your goal of having a beautiful smile. You may have to put in a little work, but the end result will be worth the trouble.
