What You Need to Know About Invisalign Braces

If you are looking for a way to straighten your teeth discreetly, one way that is becoming increasingly popular in Brampton is to use Invisalign or some kind of clear aligner treatment. These invisible braces [Aligners] can help you to get great results with your smile without the need for permanent braces.

If you are considering getting dental invisalign here are a few things that you should know.

There may be some discomfort – at first

When you force your teeth to shift position, there is bound to be some discomfort as with any Orthodontic treatment modality. Fortunately, with Invisalign aligners, it is not the same nagging pain that some experience with traditional braces. Instead, it is more of a tight feeling in the teeth that occurs when you put in a new tray. Over time though, the teeth adjust, and that tight feeling goes away.

You may need attachments

Some Invisalign patients in Brampton may require ceramic attachments on their teeth to help the treatment progress. Some patients may need elastics as well

It can cause dry mouth

Some patients may experience mild mouth irritation particularly within the first few days of wearing their aligners. This can result in less saliva and therefore dry mouth. Be sure to stay extra hydrated if you experience this.

It’s a commitment

If you decide to get Invisalign treatment in Brampton, you’ll be wearing them for over a year, so you’ll have to commit to the process for it to work. You need to be disciplined and compliant enough to wear the aligners 22 hours a day, only taking them out to eat and clean your teeth. But when you have your beautiful straight teeth, it will have been worth it!

It could affect your speech in the beginning

For the first month of treatment, it is pretty normal to speak with a lisp until you adjust to having the aligner in your mouth. You may feel a little awkward at first, but it’s a small price to pay for a stunning smile.

You’ll probably have to cut back on the coffee (and other habits)

Because you have to keep your aligners in for a significant amount of time each day, you may need to break habits like sipping coffee throughout the workday, chewing gum, or smoking.

“Chewies” are a lifesaver!

Putting in your aligners can sometimes be a little challenging – especially if it’s a new tray. Biting down on Ortho Chews (chewies) can help push the aligner into place so that it fits snugly and there is less discomfort.

You’ll get fast results

One of the best things about Invisalign braces in Brampton, is how fast you will see results. Each time you get a new tray, you’ll be able to see how much straighter your teeth have gotten.
