Invisalign is a treatment option for straightening the teeth of both young and adult patients.
This process allows the teeth to be corrected without anyone knowing it’s happening, although routine visits to the dentist are still required to monitor the progress. The length of time the treatment takes as well as the final results will depend on the oral care professional and the patient alike. Here are a few tips to help ensure your experience with Invisalign treatment is a positive one.
Proper Oral Hygiene Is a Must
With any teeth straightening procedure, you still must brush your teeth on a regular basis. Through the Invisalign treatment, the teeth are covered in such a way that you have to be careful while you brush. Both the liners and your teeth need to be cleaned regularly. You can use a denture-cleaning products when cleaning the trays, but also use regular toothpaste for your teeth.
If practicing proper oral hygiene is a problem to you, plaque may build up on your teeth and the explicit material of the trays. It may turn the material cloudy and make it visible to other people. You should also remove the trays while eating or drinking to prevent the material from becoming stained.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, we encourage you to discuss these matters with an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
