Invisalign is an excellent teeth straightening option for anyone who wants to straighten their teeth discreetly. This makes it the top choice for adults and a great choice for teens, too! With Invisalign, you’ll get a series of clear aligners that fit over your teeth. They gently push your teeth in the right direction over 12 – 18 months. In the end, you’ll have a beautiful smile that you’re proud to show off. After all, smiling is good for your health and helps you live longer!
Most are candidates for Invisalign, but traditional braces may be the best and fastest in cases with severe midline or bite issues. Set up a consult with your Spokane Invisalign dentist to see what type of teeth straightening will work best for your smile.
If you have Invisalign and are facing some problems or are considering Invisalign, here are some common issues and solutions.
Per doctor and Invisalign manufacturer recommendations, you should wear your clear aligners as often as possible and no less than 22 hours per day. If you fail to wear your aligners for enough time each day, your procedure will take much longer than expected. Another non-compliance issue that can arise is not wearing your retainer when your Invisalign treatment is over. This is especially important for teens whose jaws may still be developing. You don’t want to look in the mirror one day and realize that your teeth have moved after you’ve spent so much time and money straightening them! Make sure to wear your retainer as often as your Spokane dentist recommends. We can move teeth because your jawbone can reshape around your teeth’ roots. For the same reason, even without pressure, your teeth can drift again, and your jawbone will reshape around them.
Here is your reminder to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours per day and to wear your retainer as often as your dentist recommends!
