Getting the Most out of Your Invisalign Treatment
Has your dentist recommended an Invisalign treatment to help correct your smile? It is an effective and comfortable way to achieve a transformed smile while improving your health. Our team at Ramona Dentistry near you offers a wide range of cosmetic and restorative services, including Invisalign treatment. Like any treatment, it only works if you put in an effort. Continue reading on to see how you can get the most out of your Invisalign treatment. Below are a few easy and helpful tips that will ensure a successful treatment process:
- Wear them for at Least 22 Hours a Day. Invisalign aligners were created to put constant pressure on the set of teeth. This means an individual must wear them consistently in order for them to work properly. They should only be removed for eating and cleaning purposes and be left on throughout the day and night. The more you wear your aligners, the quicker your treatment will be.
- Keep your Travel Toothbrush handy! A major benefit of Invisalign aligners is that they can be removed prior to eating. This means no restrictions on what you can and can’t eat throughout the treatment. However, we recommend keeping a small travel toothbrush with you at all times in order to keep your teeth clean and fresh.
- Clean Your Invisalign Aligners Every Weekly. Your aligners are constantly pushed up against your teeth and gums. Regular cleaning of the aligners is therefore essential in protecting your oral health and lowering the risk of decay. How can you keep your Invisalign aligners clean? Brushing your aligners with cold water and a toothbrush will help to get rid of debris and bacteria. We also recommend using a cleaning tablet for a more thorough clean. Add a tablet and your aligner into a glass of water and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Doing this just once a week will ensure a clean and fresh smile during your treatment.
