9 Vital Invisalign Facts You Should Know Before Getting Treatment

If you want Your smile improved, Invisalign is you’re a great option. In fact straightening your teeth with Invisalign braces utilises a revolutionary system. Considering all the benefits these braces offer, popularity of this modern treatment is rising steadily all over the UK including London.

In the following paragraphs of this blog post, we will discuss some vital facts about the treatment.

Vital Invisalign facts to be aware about:

  • You must wear it for minimum of 20 to 22 hours a day: Yes, you have to wear the Invisalign aligners for at least 20 hours a day to get those expected results. It is relevant mentioning that dentists recommend wearing it 22 hours daily. In alternative words, it means that your breakfast, lunch and dinner, brushing your teeth and flossing are the only times you take the aligners out. You should get this kind of treatment only if you are willing to be committed to the cause.
  • Initially, you will speak with a little lisp: When you put on the braces for the first time, you will invariably speak with a little lisp. The lisp occurs as your teeth try to adjust themselves to the plastic aligners. However, this problem will fade on its own in a few days.
  • Invisalign is not suitable for everyone: Invisalign can fix a many orthodontic problems including crooked teeth, gaps, minor degrees of under or over bite and others. But it is not ideal to treat extreme orthodontic problems.  Orthodontic patients with complex problems are likely best treated using conventional braces or undergoing a surgical treatment. Smile Assessment is a reliable feature of the Invisalign technology to ascertain whether you are suitable for the treatment.
  • Carry your travel toothbrush everywhere: While you are on Invisalign, make sure to carry a mini toothpaste tube, a small mouthwash and the toothbrush with you everywhere. It is important that you brush the teeth after every meal to get rid of the food debris stuck between the teeth.  It is better to invest in a few toothbrushes with Invisalign.
  • Cut down on your favourite drinks: Drinks like coffee, tea and red wine in particular prove effective in staining the teeth. You have to cut down on these popular beverages while on Invisalign because they can easily stain your clear, transparent plastic aligners just as they stain the teeth. Take the aligners off every time before sipping on your favourite beverages. Do brush the teeth before slipping on the braces again.
  • Invisalign treatment may make you lose weight: Skilled and qualified dentists handling teeth straightening cases with Invisalign braces in London have something important to share. Once you are on this cutting-edge orthodontic treatment, your lifestyle will suddenly change. Those mid-day snacks will become not possible for you. As a result, you’re could to lose weight once when you are on Invisalign.
  • Invisalign involves initial discomfort but becomes easier: Unlike conventional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are lower on the pain levels compared to metallic braces.
  • Treatment time may longer:  Invisalign teeth straightening treatment usually lasts 6 months to a year on an average. But, the treatment may require some additional time and you may have to wear a fresh set of ‘finishing’ aligners to ensure the results are closest to perfection.  You must be prepared for this before starting the treatment.

Last but not least, Invisalign is worth it. The treatment involves good deal of monetary investment. Moreover, you have to make a lot of effort to adjust to the new lifestyle that the treatment demands. Along with that, time is also a factor to take into consideration. But making all the effort to get the teeth straightened with Invisalign braces is absolutely worth it, with Adult Braces London.
