Invisalign is an effective teeth-straightening option that works for a wide variety of patients. If you and your Belmont dentist have decided that this is the right treatment option for you, it is time to learn about what you can expect from your new life with Invisalign aligners:
You should wear your aligners for at least 20 hours each day to get the best results. Since they can be easily removed, however, you can take them out when you eat and brush your teeth. This allows you to maintain a normal oral hygiene routine and still work on straightening your teeth. If you play contact sports and need to wear a mouth guard, you can remove the aligners and replace them with your guard to protect your teeth.Invisalign aligners are comfortable enough to wear throughout the day. Before you go to sleep, you can remove them to brush and floss. When your teeth are clean, put the aligners back into place and go to sleep with them in your mouth. Before you know it, you will have visibly straighter teeth.
