Invisalign aligners are a great way to straighten your teeth without the hassle of traditional braces. Every one to two weeks, you'll need to change your aligners to a new tray in order to keep your teeth moving in the right direction. During this time, you should wear the aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours a day, clean them regularly, and change the trays on time. Invisalign treatment usually takes 12 to 18 months to complete, but with diligent use of the aligners, you can reduce this time by half.
Your dentist will give you sets of aligners to keep at home and will have them available when it's time to change to the next pair. Most invisible braces require you to change a new set every one to two weeks. However, if your dentist or orthodontist tells you that you can change the trays every week, it's actually recommended that you do so with Invisalign. In addition to changing your trays regularly, you'll also need to attend follow-up appointments every 4 to 6 weeks so that your dentist can check on your progress and make any necessary adjustments.
Compliance with the use of Invisalign aligners is one of the most important factors in successful treatment. If you're looking for an effective way to treat your misaligned teeth, consider contacting your orthodontist or an Invisalign treatment provider to see if one of these treatment plans might be right for you. Dentists and orthodontists had been experimenting with this for a couple of years with great results, but Invisalign didn't want to put its rubber seal on it until they were sure it was safe and effective. I think it's becoming a viable alternative for just about anyone who wants to treat it with Invisalign. The staff at Legacy Orthodontics can work with you and plan an effective Invisalign treatment that will give you the smile of your dreams.
With regular adjustments and diligent use of the aligners, you can achieve the straight teeth you've always wanted in no time!.
