How to get the best results from Invisalign
One of the greatest advances in orthodontics was the development of Invisalign. When this technology was introduced, it changed the way we think about smiles. No longer were teens and adults forced to choose between crooked teeth or unsightly metal braces. Dr. Moutevelis and the Four Corners team have helped countless patients enjoy straight smiles with comfort and convenience.
Invisalign achieves results comparable to those of traditional braces, in a similar timeframe. How those results are achieved is through a very different process. Thin, transparent aligners are custom made to fit your teeth snugly, applying gentle pressure where needed. Each aligner moves teeth a tiny bit, which takes about two weeks.
Make the most of Invisalign
How can you ensure a trouble-free treatment and beautiful results? Here are a few tips:
- Choose the right provider. Dr. Moutevelis is a certified Invisalign provider. He and his team have extensive experience. He is also caring and compassionate, helping even nervous patients feel comfortable.
- Wear your aligners. At first, they might feel odd, simply because they are different. However, aligners are thin, smooth, and designed for comfort. You will adapt to them much more quickly than you expect.
- Practice good hygiene. It is important to clean your aligner, and your teeth, thoroughly. Fortunately, Invisalign makes hygiene easy. Since there are no wires or brackets to clean around, brushing and flossing is easy.
- Be careful with sequence. Invisalign software simulates treatment, predicting exactly how much each tray will move your teeth. If aligners are not changed on schedule, or one is worn out of order, they will not fit properly. Look at the number on the tray you are discarding, and replace it with the next one in the sequence.
