Facts You Didn’t Know About Invisalign

You already know Invisalign clear aligners are metal-free and removable, & that makes them fit more smoothly into your mouth. Here are some super-cool facts you didn’t know about your Invisalign clear aligners. 

They Are Removable

Yes, you heard it right! Invisalign braces are removable- unlike traditional wire braces. It means that you can eat or drink whatever you like, just by taking the invisible aligners out of your mouth first. You can also generally brush your teeth, floss, and use mouth wash by taking them out of your mouth. It adds comfort for many adults. There are no modifications to your diet while you are going through treatment. It is one of the reasons this sort of aligner is suggested so often in orthodontics.

You, Will, Need a Retainer

After you finish the treatment, your Invisalign orthodontist will send you a clear retainer tray. It is similar to the previous Invisalign tray you had. You will have to keep these trays on at night to restrain your teeth from moving back to their original place. If you stop wearing your retainer, the effects of the earlier treatment will go undone. 

Our Orthodontist Will Target Certain Teeth

Invisalign braces can only move a few teeth at a time. The Invisalign orthodontist will decide which teeth to move while creating your treatment plan. Our Invisalign dentists in Gilbert, Scottsdale, & Phoenix are trained in the aligner technique and know-how to design a proper plan for you. Because the aligners use force and time to move the teeth- you do not want to put too much pressure on your teeth as it is uneasy and makes it more difficult for you to achieve the treatment successfully.

How To Clean Invisalign

Cleaning Invisalign braces is much easier than wires and brackets. Remove the aligners from your mouth and use a clean soap to brush them in cold water. People use white vinegar & warm water to wash their Invisalign trays by soaking them for 10-15 minutes. You will need to rinse them entirely with cool water before placing them back in your mouth. Never soak your aligners in mouthwash, as the mouthwash can discolor them and are too rough on the material.

They Are More Comfortable Than Braces

Many patients have said that they enjoyed the invisible aligners more than metal braces, as they were comfier. They also relished not having to bother about wires cracking and poking at the interiors of their mouths. Invisalign is a top pick among many adults because of its convenience and ease of use. Although you can anticipate some discomfort with any orthodontic treatment, Invisalign is considerably less painful than the other methods.

Aligners Are Not Just For Kids

Since many people believe that only children and teens can successfully move their teeth, this is not true. Invisalign braces have been proven successful in patients of every age. Only 43% of adults have their incisors aligned perfectly. At our dental office, we have Invisalign teen & Invisalign for adults also. Overcrowding and underbites or cross bits can cause you troubles, and since Invisalign is so comfortable to use, why not give it a go?
