You deserve the best and most confident smile, and at Santucci Orthodontics, Dr. Santucci will help you achieve this. No longer do teens have to settle for traditional metal braces that may make them feel insecure and want to avoid orthodontic treatment.
Clear aligners like Invisalign help you achieve a straightened smile without the noticeable appearance of traditional braces. This way, you can feel encouraged to follow through with treatments that improve your orthodontic health.
Benefits Of Invisalign
Invisalign for teens offers many benefits for our patients that go beyond aesthetics. While the clear aligners are a perk for appearance, they also provide other benefits, including:
- The transparent material makes them barely noticeable (most people may not even realize you are wearing them!)
- Made from a comfortable plastic that reduces discomfort and irritation
- Easily removable so you can eat, drink, and brush all without altering much of your daily routine
- All scans are digital, meaning no more messy, uncomfortable impressions
- Changing out your aligners on your own means fewer and shorter appointments in our office
How To Protect Your Invisalign
You will need to keep some essential tips in mind to best protect your Invisalign clear aligners. Follow these recommendations by our team Santucci Orthodontics so you can progress through your Invisalign treatment seamlessly and without any trouble.
Clean Your Trays
The first tip to protect your Invisalign is to clean your aligners. It’s best to use lukewarm water to rinse out the aligners instead of hot water, which may warp the material.
We recommend cleaning the aligners daily. The process is simple, just gently brush the aligners with a toothbrush to remove any buildup and prevent staining.
Clean Your Teeth
Maintain your Invisalign by cleaning your teeth. Always brush and floss before putting your aligners back in to prevent any build-up that can be trapped between the aligners and your teeth.
It’s also important that you continue to see your dentist as you normally would to ensure that your teeth are in the best possible shape.
Store Your Aligners Correctly
A final tip to protect your Invisalign is to store them properly in the container we give you. Every time you take out your aligners to eat or brush your teeth, you should place them in their case to prevent damaging them or losing one of the aligners.
