If you have crooked teeth but are hesitant to wear metal braces because they are embarrassing, Invisalign is an attractive alternative to braces that will help you straighten your teeth without being overly conscious of how you look when you open your mouth.
Before using Invisalign, you need to know a few basic things. For example, if you want fast results in your teeth alignment, you must keep the aligners on your teeth for as long as possible. You should only remove them when eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth.
It’s also important to note that wearing the aligners will slightly alter your speech. You need to prepare for this distortion, although you need not worry about it because it’s a natural reaction to having the aligners in your mouth.
You must also change your aligners every two weeks to bring your teeth back into position and brush and floss your teeth more frequently. If you do not brush your teeth, the remaining food will be covered by the aligners and begin forming plaques that could cause tooth decay. You’ll need to adjust your dental care routine to account for this.
