Invisalign clear aligners provide patients with many benefits, including excellent results, comfort, and convenience. However, to get the most out of your Invisalign treatment, you’ll need to follow your dentist’s advice and guidelines.

Treatment with Invisalign in Loxahatchee, FL

To help you enjoy the best results from your Invisalign aligners, the team at Groves Dental Care in Loxahatchee has put together a few tips:

Change aligners according to the schedule provided by your dentist.

Generally, patients must change their aligners out every one to two weeks. We know patients sometimes have a hard time remembering to do so, so we recommend setting a reminder on your phone or putting the date of your next aligner change on your calendar. 

Wear your aligners for at least 22 hours per day.

To get the results promised by your dentist in Loxahatchee, FL, you’ll need to dedicate yourself to wearing your aligners for 22 hours every day. You should really only remove your aligners for eating and drinking and your oral hygiene routine.

Keep your teeth and aligners clean.

Your oral health depends on good hygiene, and when you regularly wear an appliance in your mouth, it’s important to keep both your teeth and gums clean and the appliance. Clean your Invisalign aligners as directed by your dentist, and brush your teeth at least twice a day. Also, always remember to floss between your teeth every day. 

Wear a retainer after your treatment.

Once you have finished your Invisalign treatment plan and have a new, straighter smile, we want you to keep it that way! To do so, you’ll need to wear a retainer. We will make specific recommendations for your dental situation after you’ve finished your treatment, and we’ll let you know how often you should wear your retainer to maintain your new smile.

With straighter teeth, you can enjoy better oral health, a more attractive smile, and a functional bite. We love helping our patients in the Loxahatchee area create beautiful, healthy smiles, and we would to help you straighten your smile with Invisalign treatment.
