Important Things To Know About Invisalign

Invisalign is a great option whether you have mild or severe dental problems because it can help fix bite issues—including underbine, open bite, cross bite and more—and diminish gaps and overcrowding. You can contact Lone Star Dental Care if you are interested in Invisalign in Frisco, and schedule a consultation to discover your options. Before you visit us, here are a few things to know about Invisalign.

It’s Custom-Made

Each Invisalign aligner is custom-made for your mouth, which guarantees that your orthodontic needs are met. At your orthodontist’s office, measurements of your mouth are taken and then the Invisalign lab creates several sets of aligners for you to use. Each set is switched out roughly every two weeks, forcing your teeth to progressively shift and straighten over time.

Stick To A Schedule

You must be mindful when wearing your Invisalign because specific things, like eating certain foods and drinks, can easily stain the Invisalign trays. Additionally, you need to stick to the schedule while wearing the trays—they should be worn between 20 and 22 hours a day. Even though they can come out whenever, that doesn’t mean that they should. One of the few times you are taking out the aligners is when you are eating or cleaning your teeth. If you aren’t wearing your Invisalign as directed, it’s possible you won’t see the correct results.

Better Overall Health

Your overall health with Invisalign can improve because your teeth aren’t covered with brackets, wires, and rubber bands. Your trays come out when you are eating and brushing your teeth, which makes cleaning your mouth and teeth an easier and more efficient process, and ultimately reducing your risk of gum disease and tooth decay.
