Invisalign is one of the most revolutionary treatment options in the orthodontic industry. The discrete and clear aligner allows people of all ages to get the dental care they need without having to worry about what people think and most importantly, without having to deal with all the downsides of traditional braces like difficulty brushing, having to avoid certain foods, and getting poked by wires or pinched by brackets. The fact that they’re removable makes them much easier to deal with and can be removed easily for brushing or eating. In this blog, we’re going to take a look at some ways to make your Invisalign treatment even more enjoyable.
Use Your Case
When you get your Invisalign aligners, you will be given a case to put the aligners in. It’s a good idea to bring this case with you wherever you go if you know you’re going to have to take them out at any point. The case will prevent the aligner from getting damaged and also keep bacteria off of it. However, it’s best to wash them off and fully clean them before you put them in the case.
Remove Trays For Exercise
If you’re planning on doing any strenuous exercise, you should plan on removing your Invisalign tray. If you like to run sometimes your mouth can get really dry and can be really uncomfortable. Just remember to put it back in once you’re done exercising!
Brush After Every Time You Eat
Although you may be thinking you should only brush after eating a major meal or every couple meals, we recommend brushing anytime you have a snack or drink something like a sugary drink. Remember, any bacteria that gets trapped in the aligners is going to stay there! Trust us, you’re not going to like the taste of your last meal in your retainers either so it’s best to brush and clean your aligners regularly.
Avoid Grinding Your Teeth
Grinding your teeth is never a good idea, but when you have your aligner in it can be even worse. Not only will this cause strain to your jaw and teeth, but it will damage the aligners and may cause your teeth to move incorrectly.
