Invisalign® provides teens and adults a way to straighten their smile without wearing metal and wire braces. Invisalign® uses clear aligners to gently shift your misaligned teeth into proper alignment. Using modern orthodontic technology, you can see a digital rendition of what your smile will look like at the end of your treatment. That same technology allows for a very precise step-by-step treatment plan to be created to get your smile to that end result. If you have a crooked smile, straightening it can help both your smile’s appearance and its health. If you are considering Invisalign® clear aligners, there are three important commitments to be aware of.
A Commitment To Excellent Oral Hygiene
Unlike with traditional braces, Invisalign® clear aligners can be removed for you to brush and floss your teeth. Brushing and flossing is important to do at least twice a day, however, you may wish to do so after every meal. Invisalign® aligners are worn snugly against your teeth. That means that any leftover food or drink debris can become trapped beneath the aligners if not removed. This gives the bacteria left beneath the aligners an opportunity to cause acidic attacks on your teeth and gums.
A Commitment To Wearing the Aligners
Because the clear aligners can be removed, it can be possible for you to forget to wear them sometimes. It is essential for the Invisalign® clear aligners to be worn at least 22 hours a day. Forgetting to wear them can slow down the treatment process entirely.
A Commitment To Keeping Scheduled Appointments
Throughout your Invisalign® treatment, you will be given different sets of clear aligners. Each set is designed to be the next step in straightening your teeth. It is important to keep up with these steps to keep your treatment plan on track. Regularly scheduled appointments give your orthodontist a chance to check your progress.
