You do not like the idea of having crooked teeth, so you decided that you would take the plunge and get Invisalign. It is a great solution that has helped people of all ages to get the straight and beautiful smile that they have always wanted to have. However, if you are going to be getting these clear braces, you will need to have an idea of Invisalign aftercare if you want to have a good experience. Fortunately, it is relatively easy to take care of your teeth and these aligners.
Take Good Care of the Aligners
You will have several sets of aligners as you go through the process of straightening your teeth. It is important to make sure that you always take good care of your aligners, and that you are using them properly. You will need to keep them in your mouth for about 22 hours per day. You should only take them out when you are eating or drinking anything other than water.
When you take them out, you need to make sure they are in a safe place where they will not become damaged or dirty. Before putting them back in your mouth, always rinse them out. You should also make sure that you take the time to clean them properly with a soft brush and cleanser. You can talk with our orthodontics specialist about getting the right ones for your aligners.
Do Not Neglect Your Teeth
When you are using the aligners, you still need to take great care of your teeth, as well. Brush and floss regularly to make sure there are no pieces of food stuck in the teeth. This could cause bacteria to end up growing in the aligners.
