Expectations for Life with Invisalign
Invisalign is the most advanced clear aligner on the orthodontic market today! At Southwood Dental Studio, we are proud to offer Invisalign in London to our patients. Why do so many people love Invisalign? It’s because this advanced system can achieve the same results without all of the brackets and wires! A more subtle treatment with the flexibility to enjoy your lifestyle. Here are a few common questions we get about Invisalign and what you can expect.
What do I do when it comes to sports?
Invisalign clear aligners work to straighten your teeth and correct your bite. However, they are not to be mistaken for protecting your teeth during sports or activities. We recommend removing your aligners and using a sports mouth guard to protect your teeth.
Will using Invisalign change how I talk?
Initially, you may notice a slight change in your speech during the first few days of treatment. This is just a small adjustment period for your mouth to get used to a new orthodontic appliance in your mouth. This is normal, and you’ll be speaking like yourself again in no time!
How do I keep my Invisalign aligners clean?
Make sure your mouth is clean by ensuring good oral care. Brush and floss after each meal or snack. This will automatically help keep your aligners clean as they sit so close to your teeth. Be sure to also clean your aligners as well. You can soak your aligner in a cleaning system to keep them clean. You can also rinse your aligners each night and brush them gently with a toothbrush to keep them fresh.
There are so many benefits to life with Invisalign! You’ll be able to eat all your favourite foods, stay active in the sports you love, brush and floss as normal and experience a more subtle treatment!
