Advice about Invisalign from your Keller, TX Family Dentist,
If you are unhappy with the general alignment or ‘straightness’ of your teeth, Keller TX Invisalign may be an option for you. Invisalign is a series of clear, plastic aligners and the choice of many patients who do not want traditional metal braces.
While for many patients, treatment can be completed under a year – there are still ‘rules’ to follow for maximum effectiveness.
1.Wear our aligners! Many patients do not see the results they expect – because they do not wear their aligners! Follow the instructions given by Dr. Darshan Patel regarding the length of time you need to wear your aligners each day.
2.Do not drink or eat while wearing your aligners. Only water should be consumed while the aligners are in place. The good news is, your Invisalign aligners can easily be removed!
3. Most Invisalign aligners are meant to be worn for 2 weeks at a time for maximum effectiveness. Make sure you are not wearing them too little or too much by tracking the aligners in a calendar.
4.Take care of your aligners! Your aligners will also need to be brushed and rinsed for optimal oral health.
5. Don’t lose your aligners! Put your aligners in the same place each time you take them out, your Invisalign case! By doing so, they will not be thrown away or lost.
