Invisalign is changing the way people are smiling all over the world. We are often asked, “What is life like after Invisalign?” There are a lot of important follow-up treatments that you need to go through in order to maintain your new smile. Your orthodontist at Parks Orthodontics is able to help you understand your best next step.
What is Invisalign
As you know, Invisalign is a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth. Using state-of-the art technology, a series of clear, removable aligners is custom-made for you. The aligners move your teeth in the sequence determined by your doctor. Throughout your treatment, your teeth will progress along the predetermined course resulting in a beautiful smile.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign
There are numerous benefits to Invisalign, but perhaps the greatest benefit is the removability. Even though you can remove your trays for special occasions, Invisalign should be worn 20-22 hours a day as directed by your doctor. Other benefits include:
- the aligners are invisible
- the flexibility to eat or drink the same food your friends are eating
- the ability to clean your teeth optimally which optimizes your oral health
- no metal brackets or wires therefore less irritation
- they fit seamlessly into daily activities
- longer time between dental visits
What Happens After Invisalign Treatment
Your doctor will recommend that after completing any orthodontic treatment, a retainer is imperative to prevent teeth from gradually shifting back towards their initial position.
At Parks Orthodontics we recommend post-treatment retainers for all of our Invisalign patients. Your custom made retainer will help maintain the end result of your beautiful smile. The benefit of our state-of-the-art technology is that it allow us to create a more precise and comfortable fitting retainer. Retainers should be worn as consistently as possible as prescribed by your doctor.
