How Easy Is It to Care for Invisalign® Aligners?
Invisalign® clear aligners offer a wide range of benefits to patients who need to straighten misaligned teeth. For example, aligners are made from clear acrylic and slip onto your teeth easily, rather than brackets and wires that are semi-permanently bonded to your teeth. This means your aligners won’t be nearly as noticeable as traditional braces, allowing you to remain more confident throughout your treatment. It also means that caring for your Invisalign® aligners is much simpler than caring for conventional braces, and therefore, they’re easier to maintain throughout the course of your orthodontic treatment in North Hollywood, CA.
What Are Clear Aligners?
Clear orthodontic aligners are a conservative and comfortable alternative to traditional, bracket-and-wire braces. Unlike traditional braces, they don’t require the brackets and wires to move your teeth. Instead, the aligners are designed to gradually guide your teeth into proper position as you cycle through them every couple weeks. Patients who wear Invisalign® aligners can take them off temporarily to eat, or to brush and floss their properly every day.
Caring for Your Aligners
Besides appearance, optimal comfort and convenience are main focuses of Invisalign® treatment. For instance, caring for the health of your teeth and gums is easier because you can remove the aligners before brushing and flossing your teeth. This also means you can clean and soak your aligners more effectively to remove harmful oral bacteria, food particles, and more, all without needing special cleaning equipment as you would with traditional braces.
