Invisalign, or invisible braces, is a popular and effective way to align crooked teeth. Invisalign treatment uses a series of clear aligners to gently move and straighten the teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign treatment is less perceptible to others, making it a great option for those who wish to straighten the teeth in a more discrete manner.

3 Tips to Speeding Up Invisalign treatment

The length of time needed for an Invisalign treatment will vary from patient to patient. If you have minor crowding, you may be a candidate for Invisalign Express, an affordable five-stage treatment. However, no matter what the recommended length of treatment is, all patients can optimize their treatment. Dr. Chaw Su Kyi, a leading London orthodontist, gives these basic tips:

  • Wear your aligners consistently (22 hours a day). Keep your aligners in throughout the day and night, removing them only during meals and when you brush your teeth.
  • Take proper care of your Invisalign Aligners. Brush/clean your aligners at least once a day with a mild antibacterial soap. Not only does this support good oral hygiene, it keeps your aligners clear of build-up. Never expose your aligners to extreme heat or cold, such as boiling or overly hot water. Temperature changes can distort the shape of the molds.
  • Maintain your oral health.  It is important to brush and floss daily, particularly when you are undergoing Invisalign treatment. Keeping the gums and teeth healthy helps ensure that you will not experience any unnecessary discomfort or delays due to tooth decay or other dental issues.

And one final tip. Plan on seeing Dr. Kyi regularly to monitor your teeth and ensure that your Invisalign treatment is going as planned. If, for some reason, adjustments need to be made, Dr. Kyi can promptly address the issue.

If you have been searching for a way to correct your smile without the metal hardware, Invisalign may be the answer. Dr. Chaw Su Kyi an award-winning orthodontist has exceptional expertise. Contact her today for your smile consultation.
