Many patients of all ages come into the Smile Studio Orthodontics office looking to straighten their smiles. Yet many of them are looking for a way to this discreetly, since the look and feel of regular braces is undesirable for many. Luckily, with the Invisalign system, patients can successfully straighten their teeth using a comfortable and completely invisible system. But in order to get the absolute most out of an Invisalign treatment system, it is important that patients follow a few steps. Whether you are considering Invisalign or have just started your treatment, follow these simple tips from Dr. Venn to get the best results from your Invisalign near Stockbridge, GA:
- Remove Invisalign to eat and drink = One of the great benefits of Invisalign in Stockbridge, GA is that they can be removed. Dr. Venn says, take advantage of this! Always take your Invisalign trays out when you are eating or drinking. Leaving them in can lead to staining of the trays or other damage, such as distortion of shape due to hot food or drinks (remember, they are made of plastic!). Plus, removing them makes eating much easier.
- Clean your Invisalign thoroughly and properly = To keep your Invisalign working well for your smile and for your oral health, be sure that you are always cleaning them correctly and completely. Smile Studio Orthodontics believes Invisalign should be cleaned at least twice a day, preferably after meals. To do so, Dr. Venn recommends purchasing a small baby toothbrush, and brushing the insides of the aligners softly, with just a tiny drop of toothpaste. Another method that many patients in Stockbridge, GA use is to soak Invisalign aligners in Denture cleaner. Simply fill a cup with warm water, put the tablet in, and let the aligners soak. Smile Studio Orthodontics says both methods will keep your Invisalign in Stockbridge, GA looking clean, feeling fresh, and working effectively.
- Wear Invisalign as directed = One of the most important ways to maximize your treatment with Invisalign is to make sure that you are using the system as precisely as you can. Be sure to always follow the exact instructions from Smile Studio Orthodontics. Likely, this will mean never leaving the Invisalign trays out of your mouth for extended periods of time, and being sure to change to your new set of trays when the 2-3 week time period has elapsed. Additionally, patients in Stockbridge, GA should remember not to take the trays out when playing sports or participating in other activities unless directed to do so by Dr. Venn (or a coach), because these could take a long time and may throw off the schedule and mess up your final result.
