Studies have proven that people who smile often, appear more likable, competent, and courteous. Non-arguably, people are swiftly switching to the use of clear Invisalign braces in London in the stead of the traditional metal braces. We give our patients nothing but the best therapy, which consists of teeth straightening and adjustment to restore your smile. Below are some helpful tips to get a successful Invisalign treatment.
The initial 48 hours
Each aligner tray should be dedicatedly worn for the first 48 hours. A quick break can be taken in the course of brushing your teeth at least for the first two days and without hesitation be worn back. Note that this first phase is essential to get the desired result which of course is a healthy straight teeth.
Wear for at least 22 hours
Just 22 hours each day is what it takes to obtain concrete aftermath. Wearing these trays for at least 22 hours, especially at the initial stage would yield excellent results.
Getting used to the aligners
You should be cognizant of the fact that the first period of wearing the trays can be tiring and slightly uncomfortable, but as earlier stated if the patient ardently puts on the trays for at least 22hours a day, your teeth gradually get accustomed to the trays, and you won’t feel the discomfort again.
Speaking with your trays on
Patients with recently acquired trays most likely would experience a change in the way they pronounce words. This happens because the tongue is not yet accustomed to them. With constant practice in a few days or even hours, those lisps would be fast gone.
Make use of Invisalign attachments
To fasten the straightening process, you can request what is known as “buttons” to help keep the trays still at a place. The feel of these buttons at first may be ill-fitting, but with constant dedicated use, your mouth would get accustomed to it.
Keeping your mouth clean
The mouth is a gateway to your body’s overall health. So to avoid bad breath, prevent teeth cavities and poor dental hygiene, it is necessary to floss and brush your teeth after every meal at least twice a day to facilitate good oral health.
Take good care of your aligners
Clean aligners result in fresh breath. We advise that you thoroughly clean your aligners as soon as you take them off in order to prevent the spread of bacteria in your teeth and eliminate bad breath.
The official invisalign cleaning crystals, a clear anti-bacterial soft soap, or denture cleaner can be used in your aligner cleaning process. Note that the use of toothpaste would cause scratches on the plastic, making your aligner a breeding ground for unwanted bacteria.
Take a lot of water.
Water is really helpful for the rinsing away of residual bits, acid, and sugar that can result in cavities once bad bacteria gets to feed on them. Water keeps you hydrated; it’s also a good source of fluoride which is known as “nature’s” cavity fighter.
