Have you been looking to straighten your teeth without the embarrassment of braces? Thanks to Invisalign you can come into our Montclair, NJ office for teeth straightening that will be comfortable and convenient for you without anyone having to notice. If you want to show off a beautiful healthy smile with confidence, then Invisalign is the way to go! Before you get started with treatment, here are some factors you should take into consideration.

Wearing Aligners: Yes, the plus side about aligners is that they are removable but this also means that you have to be good about remembering when to take them off and putting them back on. This is important because your treatment time will take longer if you don’t wear your aligners as much as possible. Drs. Jacy and Arianna Papasikos will discuss with you everything you need to know about Invisalign. In most cases, you’ll have to wear your aligners 22 hours a day.

Checkups: When wearing your aligners, you must come in for appointments so our doctors can check to see how well your teeth are doing and if treatment is according to plan. Also coming in for checkups allows for them to make sure that your Invisalign aligners are fitting properly. If there is an issue, we can address it while you’re in the office.

Caring for Teeth: Invisalign is great because cleaning your teeth is just as easy as it was before wearing the aligners. Thanks to the fact that the aligners are removable you can clean your teeth with ease, brushing, flossing, and rinsing just as you would normally. One thing to remember though is that you’ll want to make sure your teeth are extra clean so that when you put the aligners back on food won’t be trapped causing bacteria to get stuck to the aligners.

Caring for Invisalign Aligners: Lastly, you need to make sure that you take proper care of the aligners. Keeping them clean and safe is important in ensuring that your Invisalign treatment goes according to plan without any issues. If you follow the instructions that we give you, you should be able to care for your aligners properly.
