Having straight teeth is something everyone wants to have, it affects your lifestyle, your health, and your appearance. Maybe you are an adult who was unable to afford braces when you were younger ,but now you can afford them. You might have a fear of getting braces because you think the traditional wire braces are the only ones available or the traditional wire braces may not be that attractive to you. Well, I have good news for you Invisalign braces are invisible and they are made out of plastic so there is no metal to cause mouth abrasions while you are wearing them. People will not be able to tell that you are wearing braces. This is very helpful with your confidence, it makes you want to smile everywhere you go.

Using Invisalign braces has several benefits such as there are fewer problems with plaque buildup, you can eat normal foods that you like to eat and they are less painful. Traditional wire braces do not allow you to eat everything that you want because food can get stuck in between the braces. Invisalign braces allow you to remove them, which makes it easy for you to brush and floss your teeth. Using Invisalign braces alone may not completely straighten your teeth, if this happens the dentist can use orthognathic surgery. There are a few things that you have to do with the Invisalign braces. You have to wear them for at least 22 hours a day unless the dentist specifies a different time, you have to clean the trays regularly (do not soak them in mouthwash) and make sure you store them in a cool dry place.

Do not drink anything hot or chew gum while you are wearing your Invisalign braces. It is a good habit to remove the braces before eating or drinking. To properly clean Invisalign, place them in a bowl of cold water and soap.  It is important to remember not to place them in hot water because they are made from plastic and can melt. After you eat or drink, it is important to brush your teeth and floss. If it is possible,  I would suggest soaking your Invisalign while you are eating. Remember drinking dark beverages can stain your Invisalign so if you are unable to remove them, use a straw.

Invisalign Pottsville will guide you through the process from start to finish. After the Invisalign braces have been removed you will  have to use a retainer. Invisalign Pottsville takes pride in assisting their patients with any questions they may have about the Invisalign braces process. During the retention stage, you will receive regular checkups for a year.
