Cavities during Treatment with Invisalign in Keller TX
There are many misconceptions on the internet regarding the prevalence of cavities during Invisalign treatment.
In our Keller, TX dental office, Esthetique Dental, we see treat many patients with Invisalign. From what we have seen, patients with Invisalign tend to be MORE aware of their oral hygiene, and snack on sweets less, which does not cause cavities.
While wearing Invisalign, you should only consume water with the aligners. Any other food or drinks will require that you remove your aligner. After eating, you should be sure to brush, rinse, and floss your teeth before reapplying the aligner.
Additionally, being sure to clean your trays and increase your water intake can go a long way to prevent cavities.
If you take care of your teeth, and your aligners, you should not see any increase in the number of cavities.
