5 Tips For Your Invisalign® Treatment

Embarking on a journey to straighten your teeth with Invisalign®? Congratulations! This popular treatment has helped countless patients enhance their smile.

With that in mind, the success of your Invisalign® experience will largely depend on your commitment to proper care. Below, Dr. Kevin Sands has listed some essential tips to help you make your Invisalign® treatment as effective and comfortable as possible:

  1. Take your aligners out. Take advantage of Invisalign®’s removability – a perk you don’t get with traditional braces! Remove the aligners whenever you’re eating or drinking anything other than water.
  2. Use a toothbrush. Keep your aligners clean by brushing them gently every time you remove them.
  3. Never wash with hot water. Warm water is ideal for rinsing your Invisalign® aligners, but not too warm. Hot water can warp the plastic and destroy the aligners’ shape. 
  4. Wear your aligners and retainer diligently. Consistency is key! Be sure to wear and clean your Invisalign® aligners and retainer as directed for optimal results.
  5. Ask questions. Dr. Sands is here to help! Feel free to bring up any questions or concerns when you visit our office for an appointment.
