6 Invisalign Tips Every Orthodontic Patient Should Know | Orthodontics Limited

Invisalign Local Family Dentistry in Salem OR

If you choose Invisalign aligners, the clear plastic removable aligners, you will have fewer adjustments to make than if you chose a more traditional treatment like metal braces, but it will still be an adjustment.

If you choose Invisalign aligners, the clear plastic removable aligners, you will have fewer adjustments to make than if you chose a more traditional treatment like metal braces, but it will still be an adjustment.

Here are a few things you should know if you have Invisalign Clear Aligners:

  1. Don’t Forget to Wear Your Aligners
    An easy tip to prevent long gaps in between when you are wearing the aligners, is to make a habit of brushing your teeth and cleaning the aligners right after every meal so that you remember to put them back in right away.
  2. Clean Your Aligners Properly
    Each morning take your trays out and clean both your teeth and the trays thoroughly. While you were sleeping a lot of bacteria could have built up on the trays so it is important to start the day off right with clean teeth and trays.
  3. Never Leave Your Invisalign Trays Out in the Open
    Invisalign Tips include to not Leave them exposed as that could lead to more buildup of bacteria while also making it more likely that you will lose them.
  4. Don’t use Toothpaste to Clean Your Trays
    While toothpaste is great for your teeth, it can actually cause discoloration to the trays and can damage them. Toothpaste will also cause a dull sheen to the trays which will also make them more noticeable in your mouth.
  5. Your Mouth Will Need Time to Adjust
    Because there are no metal wires or permanent brackets on your teeth, you won’t have any tooth or gum irritation, but just like with a retainer you will have to get used to putting the aligners in and out, and adjusting to speaking with the aligners.
  6. The Designation of your Invisalign Provider Matters
    Invisalign offers three designations for its providers, Preferred, Premier and Premier Elite based on how many patients they have treated with Invisalign. Choosing an orthodontist with Preferred status will give you the confidence that your orthodontist is very experienced with this type of treatment. And in case you were wondering, Yes! Hunsaker Dental is a Gold Invisalign Preferred Provider!
