What to Expect When you Get Braces – Advice from Bluewater Dentist
If you are interested to learn more about every aspect of Invisalign, take a look at our last post.
Eating and Drinking
Invisalign doesn’t have an effect on what you eat and drink! Because you can easily remove the aligners at any time – unlike other braces – you won’t be limited at mealtimes.
Though after your aligners are first fitted you may notice a little difference in your speech, this goes away! Your mouth just needs time to adjust, your speech will return to normal in no time. If a change in speech is one of the reasons you’re avoiding straightening your teeth, Invisalign is the perfect solution!
If you think that Invisalign teeth aligners are there to protect your gums and teeth during sport, you’re mistaken! If you do play a contact sport, its more beneficial to the health and safety of your mouth to remove your treatment aligners and wear an appropriate guard. This way you’ll have a protected mouth and your important Invisalign aligners will also be safe from damage!
Keeping Your Aligners Clean
Keeping your aligners clean is so important! You can expect to complete 2 necessary steps. First of all, it is essential that you brush and floss your teeth after everything you eat. If you don’t do this, there will be a build up of bacteria, plaque and food.
The second step is to clean your Invisalign aligner. Do this while your aligner is not in your mouth! We recommend to soak it in mouthwash, combine water and vinegar to make a solution or using the Invisalign specific kit. It is vital you get into a regular habit of this as otherwise, your aligner will discolour.
