Invisalign uses clear aligners to straighten your teeth. Virtually invisible, the aligners are comfortable, removable, and easy to clean. Your teeth will move very gradually into their ideal position, and because Invisalign aligners are custom-designed for your teeth using 3D imaging technology, they are incredibly effective.
There are many reasons why someone might choose Invisalign:
First, Invisalign is discrete. Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic, which means that they are nearly invisible. You can wear them without anyone even knowing. You take them out to eat, brush and floss, or for special occasions.
Next, the aligners are removable. This means that you can take them out whenever you want, such as when you need to eat, brush your teeth, or for a special occasion. You don’t have to change your diet or oral hygiene routine, and you don’t have to put in any added effort.
Finally, the aligners are more comfortable than braces. With braces, you have to feel the brackets and wires on your teeth, which can be uncomfortable. With Invisalign, there are no brackets or wires. Instead, the aligners are made of smooth plastic, which won’t irritate your teeth.
Cleaning your teeth during Invisalign treatment is very similar to cleaning your teeth before you started Invisalign. You’ll need a toothbrush and toothpaste, and you’ll brush and floss your teeth as you normally would.
The aligners should be removed every time you brush and floss your teeth, and you should clean your teeth before reinserting your aligners.
Once your aligners are in, it’s important that you keep them in for at least 22 hours each day. This will ensure that your treatment progresses on schedule.
When you take your aligners out, make sure you rinse them under warm water again before putting them back in the case. This will help to prevent bacteria from building up on them.
Once your aligners are out, it’s also important to brush your teeth. It goes without saying that you should brush your teeth twice a day. This will help to remove any food particles that could be trapped under your teeth.
