Are you dreaming of having a straight and perfect smile? Surrideo Orthodontics has helped countless orthodontic patients by providing Calgary Invisalign and Invisalign Teen for over 15 years. For those who dislike the idea of wearing traditional metal braces, or who want to avoid the discomfort of braces, Invisalign treatment is discreet, affordable, and convenient. It is a great option for both adults and teens who desire a straighter smile. However, there are a few important things all Invisalign patients should know if they want to get the most out of their treatment. Let’s take a look.
Be Committed to Wearing Your Aligners
You should wear your aligners as much as possible for the first 48 hours you receive treatment, taking them out only to brush your teeth. It’s very important to wear your aligners throughout the entire duration of your treatment, but the first 48 hours are especially crucial for the adjustment of your teeth. Remember, Invisalign only works if you wear your trays for most of the day, each day. Be committed to keeping them in at least 22 hours every day if you want to achieve the results you desire.
Follow The Instructions of your Calgary Orthodontist
Your Calgary orthodontist is committed to helping you achieve the best results from your Invisalign treatment. As a patient, it’s important to follow your orthodontist’s instructions precisely. Don’t switch to the next tray before your orthodontist instructs you to do so. When instructed to change your tray, do so right away. Commit to cooperate with us, and you’ll see faster results.
Practice Talking With Your Aligners On
You may notice that you have trouble speaking when you first wear your aligners. But, don’t remove your trays. Instead, practice talking while wearing them, and you will quickly get used to it and be speaking as usual in no time!
Clean Your Trays Regularly
To keep your trays from harboring bacteria near your teeth, it’s important to clean them regularly. Use warm water and soap to gently wash them, and avoid using toothpaste as this can scratch the plastic and create spaces for bacteria to grow.
Keep Your Mouth Sparkling Clean
Just as it’s important to keep your trays clean, it’s also important to keep your teeth and gums in top shape. Brush and floss thoroughly at least twice a day, keeping your mouth as clean as possible to avoid plaque buildup that may compromise your oral health. Preventing cavities and tooth decay should be your number one priority while undergoing orthodontic treatment.
