1. Floss daily.

When it comes to Invisalign treatment it is highly important to make sure you properly take care of your smile, including flossing. Any debris left behind when you put in your aligners can actually cause decay, foul odors and even damage to your aligners.

2. Follow the 48-hour instruction.

When first changing aligners for treatment it is important to make sure you wear your new set of aligners as much as possible during the first 48 hours. We recommend only removing your aligners to eat, drink or clean your smile.

3. Wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day.

Many patients think removing their aligners a bit extra won’t hurt much, however it can greatly increase the length of your treatment. Make sure that you wear your aligners AT LEAST 22 hours a day to ensure the shortest and most effective treatment.

4. Follow dietary instructions provided to you.

It may seem annoying to not be able to snack all day, however doing so can actually damage your aligners if you are still wearing them or haven’t properly cleaned your teeth. We recommend ONLY drinking water while wearing your aligners, nothing else.
