It is important to get the most out of your Invisalign treatment, in order to have the straight teeth and beautiful smile that you want and deserve. If you’ve had an exam and consultation with your dentist, and they have decided that Invisalign rather than traditional metal braces are the right fit, you still need to follow the right steps to get everything you can out of the treatment. This includes taking care of the aligners and keeping them safe from anything that could damage them, and using them on a full-time basis when you are supposed to be wearing them, so your teeth do not revert back to their old positions.
Research has shown that straight, aligned teeth are an important part of maintaining the best dental and overall health. Invisalign helps to straighten teeth while eliminating many of the complaints that patients typically have regarding traditional metal braces. If your dentist has recommended that straightening your teeth with Invisalign is the best path, you can choose to have better oral health and a convenient treatment plan that does not include ugly and painful wires or brackets.
Improved Overall Oral Hygiene
Your dentist may recommend Invisalign for various reasons. Unlike traditional metal brace, Invisalign helps improve overall oral health. For people with metal brackets and wire braces, it is often hard to gauge if you are effectively cleaning your teeth when brushing or flossing. Therefore, complications may arise such as tooth decay and gum disease due to improper care. Invisalign are easily removable for both eating and cleaning, therefore having good oral hygiene should not be an issue anymore.
Comfortable and Easy
Invisalign aligners are not only excellent for your oral health, but they are also very convenient due to their removable quality. While you wear your aligners for the majority of the day, they need to be removed while eating and when brushing and flossing. But they need to stay on as long as directed for maximum effectiveness. You will receive a new set of aligners every few weeks due to the movement of your teeth into a straightened position, and therefore Invisalign straightens your teeth without any discomfort and pain.
Hence the name Invisalign, these aligners are discreet and practically “invisible” to the discerning eye, even when looking in the mirror. Not only will you have a straight and confident smile, this way of doing it is worth the price based on looks alone.
