WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER MY INVISALIGN® FITTING?
After receiving your first set of Invisalign® aligners, it is important to maintain proper oral hygiene. Brushing your teeth twice a day and cleansing your clear aligners are important to maintaining a healthy smile. Invisalign® aligners must be worn for a minimum of 20 hours or more a day. After your teeth have properly shifted, you will move on to your next set of Invisalign® clear aligners to continue straightening your smile.
After you have achieved a straighter smile with Invisalign®, retainers are needed in order to maintain your results. If retainers are not worn as directed, your teeth may shift back or become misaligned.
Similar to your Invisalign® trays, you cannot eat with your retainers in, and proper cleaning of the retainers is necessary on a daily basis. In addition to wearing your retainers, routine dental examinations and cleanings can help maintain your healthy, straight smile.
