Post Invisalign Treatment Care

Post-invisalign treatment care

Regardless of whether you have had any treatment, we recommend regular checkups to make sure your mouth is as healthy as it can be.

Ensuring your oral health condition and state is up to standard can make all the difference when it comes to avoiding and preventing risks and threats to your dental hygiene in the future.

For example, patients who want vital cosmetic treatment but suffer from tooth decay, gum infection or experience gum disease will need to have these problems corrected to ensure treatment success.

However, it becomes even more imperative to maintain your routine examination appointments after you have had some dental work done.

It is important to thoroughly clean your teeth and mouth in order to maintain good overall dental healthcare.

This allows the dentist and orthodontists to make sure that your treatment is stable, secure and in excellent condition.

Different Options

After you have had your treatment completed you will need to be fitted with a retainer.

These help to keep the newly aligned teeth secure in their new positions. The dentist will discuss various options with you.

They include:

  • Conventional Retainer
  • Positional Retainer
  • Vivera Retainer
  • Fixed Retainer

oral hygiene

Due to the very nature of these aligners, you are still able to follow your home cleaning regime as advised by your dentist or hygienist throughout the treatment.

An advantage of straightening your teeth is that your teeth end up in a position that aids your ability to clean them properly.

However, the technique you will now follow post-treatment to clean your teeth will need to be slightly adjusted.

Often due to the placement of a fixed retainer, you will need to use appropriately sized interdental brushes eg. TePe brushes to clean between your teeth.

Hence, regular flossing will not be as efficient on the teeth fixed by the retainer.

The Invisalign process is simple. Completed in just three steps, the wearer has more freedom to carry out their treatment.

    1. Meet with your Invisalign Doctor: First, the orthodontist will use the iTero scanner to take a precise and fast 3D digital scan, which will allow them to put together a bespoke treatment plan, which will plan out your treatment over the next coming months. The treatment plan will highlight each step of the procedure, where you will precisely see your teeth’ movement.
    2. Transform your smile: Start wearing your aligners! As the clear aligners are designed to apply the right amount of force at the right time, you will be required to revisit the dentist to monitor your progress and pick up your new set of aligners.
    3. Show off the results: To complete your treatment, you will be required to wear retainers in the evening, much more robust than normal ones. This means your treatment will be more effective, and you will not have to wear a retainer as long as you would with conventional systems.
