5 Things You Should Know About Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign clear aligners are an awesome way of straightening your teeth. They are discrete and easy to wear and as a result our patients simply love them.
Below are 5 things you should know about the treatment.

Invisalign aligners work best if you wear them for at least 22 hours a day.

The longer you wear the aligners continually, the more chance they have to work. Its a commitment! You will wear the braces for 2 weeks before changing to the next set.

You can take the aligner out when you eat.

You must remove the braces when you eat. In fact, eating with them in is impossible, as your teeth will not come into contact. Our patients become very adept at discreetly slipping the aligners out and in. Removing the braces when you eat allows you to enjoy your food as normal. Try to brush your teeth before and after inserting your aligners. Oral hygiene is is much easier to keep up with as you can remove your aligners to brush and floss as normal.

Water is the best drink for your braces

You can drink when you wear your invisible braces, but, tea, coffee, red wine may all cause staining. If morning coffee is an essential part of your daily routine, remove the aligners before drinking it. Try to brush your teeth before and after inserting your aligners.

Don’t smoke

Smoking will clause your invisible braces to become less than invisible. Tobacco stains are unsightly and difficult to remove. Also, smoking is bad for your general dental health

Invisalign Aligners aren’t for everyone

Not all patients are good candidates for Invisalign. Traditional braces may be a better choice for those with severely crooked teeth.
