Getting the Most from Your Invisalign Treatment

If you are thinking about getting Invisalign treatment, or perhaps you have already met with your dentist and decided that Invisalign is right for you, there is a lot more to proper treatment than just putting on your straightening trays. You can take steps to truly get the most out of your Invisalign treatment. The effort that you put into your treatment can decide how quickly your teeth straighten as well as whether or not your teeth go back to the way they were before the straightening.

What You Can Do

Your life is in your own hands, and this includes your Invisalign straightening. Your list of things to do to help your procedure along is more or less short and simple. As long as you stick to these tips, your Invisalign treatment will go smoothly, and you can enjoy a beautiful smile sooner rather than later.

Take care of your aligners.

Invisalign treatment is impossible to beat when it comes to discrete teeth straightening, but it is not infallible. Your aligners should be well taken care of. If your aligners become dirty and you place them back into your mouth time, and time again, it can potentially cause oral health problems. So, take good care of your alignment trays. Keep them clean, and when you are traveling, use a protective case to make sure that they are safe and clean.

Use your aligners regularly.

Your aligners can only move your teeth into place if you actually wear them. There really should be no reason to remove them except when you are eating or caring for your oral health routine. Try to wear your Invisalign trays as much as possible.

Maintain your smile.

What is the point of discretely shaping your teeth perfectly so that you can achieve a beautiful smile if you let it all go to waste by not using your retainer? If you fail to use your retainer, your teeth will undoubtedly return to the way they were before. Be diligent in your use of your retainer. Follow your orthodontist’s recommendations closely.
