If you’ve been considering Invisalign to straighten your teeth, but not sure if it’s the right treatment for you, here are some insider secrets that might provide just the information you need to help you want to take the first step.
You may not be able to eat tacos the first day you have them, but the process is a breeze compared to metal braces.
No worries about stabbing anyone or getting stuck together when kissing in Invisalign. But if you’re the least bit self-conscious, you can take them out before you, uh, get going.
To get the best results, it’s recommended that you wear them 20-22 hours a day. But unlike metal braces, you can remove them to brush, floss and eat your three squares a day.
They’re called invisible braces for a reason, and it’s true, they practically are. At first, you may notice that you have a little trouble talking, but that improves over time.
Invisalign trays can stain and become murky if you don’t clean them properly. So to keep your invisible braces invisible, you wash them with a mild detergent or soap.
Consider it a desirable side effect in most cases. When you wear Invisalign, you have to brush your teeth after every meal. Even well armed with travel toothbrush and paste, it might not always seem worth it to remove your trays and brush your teeth just for a sugary snack.
Invisalign treatment is designed to solve most orthodontic issues, such as crooked teeth, gaps, and minor over or under bites. If you have more severe problems, you may achieve better results with traditional metal braces of other solutions. Regardless of your specific complaint, you should consult with your dentist to see if Invisalign is right for you.
