Tips for getting the most out of your invisalign treatment
If you are planning to get invisalign treatment for yourself or for your loved ones, the dental experts at Hudson Family Dental have some tips for you.
Floss every day
Flossing helps you reach the intricate areas of your teeth, otherwise missed by the brush. So, make sure flossing is a part of your daily routine.
Stick to the 48-hour instruction.
The dentists will give you a very sharp 48-hour instruction on what you can consume during what periods including temperature and type of foods. Stick to it!
Commit to wearing them at least 22 hours every day
Anything beneath 22 hours a day may cause the efficacy of the invisalign treatment to fall. Hence, wear them for at least 22 hours a day.
Change your aligners on time and in the right order
Your dentist will let you know the right time and order for your aligners. Adhere to this schedule precisely.
Know that it feels a little weird, but you will get used to it
Initially, aligners will feel weird but in a few days, you will get habituated.
The speech “learning curve” is steep
There is nothing to worry with your enunciation, since the more time you spend with your aligners while talking, the clearer your enunciation will become.
Most people will not notice your aligners
People will focus on your eyes and face, and not directly on your teeth. So, nothing to feel conscious about.
Don’t be afraid of the invisalign attachments
There is absolutely nothing for you to be worried about, if you have been visiting an experienced dentist.
Know how to care for your aligners
At the time of fitting the aligners, your dentist will let you know how to take care of them. Follow the instructions to ensure their integrity and longevity. So, use your retainer properly.
Stick to the dietary instructions laid out by Dr. Gemmi and Dr. Middleberg
Both the doctors bring together years of experience in the field.
Keep your mouth extra clean
Aligners require extra cleaning. So, maintain extra hygiene for your mouth.
Use a whitening toothpaste
Using aligners may make your teeth look a little pal. In such scenarios, use a special whitening toothpaste.
