Tweak Your Teeth With Orthodontic Invisalign Therapy

Since your food won’t ever touch the aligners, they won’t be damaged. Nonetheless, you must rinse your teeth and aligners before placing them back in. Individuals using Invisalign will have to visit their dentist every couple of weeks to learn how well their teeth have been progressing. Your dentist may inquire whether you’ve experienced any issues with your present aligners and check whether your teeth have shifted enough for the next set. It is crucial that you follow your dentist’s recommendations and not wear one pair of aligners too long or try to skip a set, as this will have an impact on your progress and can extend your Invisalign therapy time.

Every patient’s treatment program is different, so the amount of time it can take to straighten your teeth will differ from patient to patient. A number of factors affect the treatment duration, including the degree and type of dental problems that have to be treated, along with the amount of aligner sets required to attain the optimal results. On average, the treatment time may last anywhere from 1 – 2 years. Following your first appointment with your dental practitioner and getting your electronic molds created, you will get a much better idea of the treatment duration.

After Invisalign therapy has put your teeth into their correct places, your teeth and jawbone will require a little additional time to adjust. This is why it is so important to diligently wear a retainer. Every retainer is constructed from the same clear substance as Invisalign; therefore, they are comfortable and barely noticeable. Initially, you will have to wear the retainer as often as you did your aligners: a minimum of 20 hours a day. However, eventually], you will start just using your retainer at night to maintain the new positioning of your teeth.
