Things you should know about your Invisalign treatment!

So you had your consultation appointment with your Pearl Dental Invisalign Provider and had your Invisalign impressions taken!

Now that you have decided to take the plunge and begin your invisalign treatment there are a few things you should know before you start.

Invisalign aligners produce incredible results, but in order to achieve optimal results you must wear your aligners! It is recommended that the aligners are worn at least 22 hours per day. You might be thinking to yourself this is an impossible task, but I promise it is possible! 

This may come with a slight lifestyle change for some, especially those who love to snack. The aligners must be removed when eating or drinking anything other than water. Once you are finished eating or drinking you can brush your teeth and rinse your aligners and pop them back in. Unlike braces, you do not have to worry about food being trapped in your brackets, but you must be dilignet with brushing and flossing to prevent any dental decay or gum disease.

It is also important to clean your aligners. You can simply brush your aligners with liquid soap and water every time you brush your teeth. This will not only clean the bacteria off your aligners, but will also minimize any staining that may occur. 

Once your treatment is completed you will need Vivera retainers. Over time our bodies change and our teeth tend to move. Wearing your retainers as instructed is essential to maintaining your straight smile.

Stay tuned to our next blog where will discuss many common questions we receive from patients throughout their treatment!!
