Am I a Good Candidate for Invisalign?

If you have crooked teeth or a minor bite issue, Invisalign braces are a great solution for you. Designed for adults and more mature teenagers, these clear aligners can not only give you a more beautiful, straighter smile, but they can also provide a more discreet solution. If you’re committed to straightening your teeth and are responsible enough to wear your aligners 20-22 hours each day, you can achieve success with Invisalign.

Why Should I Feel Confident About Invisalign Treatment?

In addition to the clear advantages that Invisalign provides, one of the greatest aspects is the increased confidence you’ll have knowing your teeth are being treated with a safe and effective tooth straightening solution. But if that’s not enough, here are some other reasons you can be glad you chose Invisalign in North Valleys:

How Do I Take Care of My Aligners?

If you’re worried that cleaning your aligners will be a difficult or strenuous task, you’ll be happy to know that caring for your aligners is quick and easy. If you choose, you can opt for the Invisalign Cleaning System to clean your aligners, but until you receive it, using lukewarm water, a toothbrush and toothpaste will remove any bacteria or dried saliva from your trays. It’s important to remember never to use hot water with your aligners, as it can warp the plastic.

Before you reinsert your trays after eating, make sure to either brush your teeth or rinse out your mouth. This will prevent food particles from transferring onto your aligners.

Should you accidentally drop your Invisalign trays, clean and sanitize them before reinserting them into your mouth. Invest in a small, protective case to keep them safe while eating and/or drinking.

What Happens When I’m Done with Invisalign Treatment?

At the end of your treatment, your dentist in Reno will most likely recommend that you wear a retainer to prevent your newly straightened teeth from returning to their original position. Depending on your individual needs, Dr. Branco may suggest that you wear it full time in the beginning, but over time, you’ll transition to wearing your retainer only at night.
