Decided it is time to improve the appearance, function and health of your smile with Invisalign in Scottsdale, AZ? At Landmark Smiles we are proud providers of Invisalign aligners and believe that education can help our patients achieve the best results possible. When it comes to your Invisalign treatment it is important to listen to your dentist and follow the directions given to you. The following tips will help ensure that your Invisalign treatment is as successful as possible.
When your dentist says to wear Invisalign for a minimum of 22 hours a day, they mean it. Wearing your aligners as directed ensure that your treatment goes as planned. You should also make sure that you are switching to new aligners when you are supposed to. Those that neglect to wear their Invisalign aligners as directed typically have successful treatment which requires additional orthodontic care.
You know how your Invisalign aligners are basically clear? They won’t be if you start drinking or eating anything outside of water while wearing them. If you decide you need a snack, it is important to remove your aligners and clean your smile before you place them back in. Drinking or eating anything besides water could result in staining and damage to your clear aligners.
Along with being stained by foods or beverages, not properly caring for your smile and Invisalign trays can actually result in damage and staining of your aligners along with increased risk of bad breath and even tooth decay.
Remember that case for your Invisalign aligners? Use it! Due to the fact that Invisalign is designed to be virtually invisible, your aligners can be extremely difficult to find if misplaced or list. Always place your aligners in their case if you are not wearing them.
