Invisalign treatment is easy and convenient, and allows you to live your life without interruptions. Once you work with our cosmetic dentists to determine that Invisalign is the right option for you, we’ll take a quick, non-invasive scan of your mouth in order to create your custom aligners. Once your aligners are made, you’ll come back to Green Leaf Dental to try them on and make sure that they fit perfectly. You’ll leave your appointment and start your treatment and your journey to the smile of your dreams!
To keep your aligners clean and clear, rinse them regularly and brush them out gently twice each day. Take your aligners out when you eat and drink dark colored or sugary beverages, and put them back on as soon as possible. Keep aligners in their case when not worn to prevent damage. Your aligners will spend most of their time in your mouth, so maintaining good oral hygiene is a great way to keep your them clean, too. Following these instructions throughout your treatment will ensure the best results and your most confident smile.
Results are best if you keep aligners on from 20 to 22 hours per day. This allows patients enough time to get through their daily meals, but you should be prepared to wear them almost constantly. It's most imperative to wear them at night, since sleep is such a long stretch of time. Another best practice is to brush your teeth after your meals and before you put your aligners back in.
Each week, you'll change out your current aligners for your next set. And every four weeks, you'll see the team at Green Leaf Dental (virtually or in-office) to ensure you're progressing through the treatment. If you're wearing your aligners diligently, you'll stay on track with your treatment plan and achieve a perfectly aligned smile before you know it.
