What Do I Need to Make My Invisalign Treatment Successful?

04/28/2017

Dr. Castilla and her team at Castilla Orthodontics know what’s needed to ensure your treatment with Invisalign in the Dallas, OR area is successful. These clear aligners are convenient, discreet, and removable by the wearer. They must be worn conscientiously, however, to be effective. Commitment, and a few handy tools, will guarantee patients of Dr. Castilla a successful treatment outcome.

Trays

A computer program called “ClinCheck” is used to determine a course of treatment with Invisalign. From this data, the aligner trays are custom made for each patient. Invisalign is made of a clear thermoplastic material that is nearly invisible while being worn.

Cleaning Materials

Most orthodontists like Dr. Castilla say that the best method to keep your clear aligners clean is simply to brush them with toothpaste and rinse them in a denture cleaning solution. An Invisalign cleaning kit is available online. Special cleaning crystals remove plaque from your aligners within about 15 minutes. Pantry items like white vinegar can be effective in a pinch.

Retainers

Teeth aren’t rigidly set in the jawbone. They are fixed in place by a collection of fibers called periodontal ligaments. After orthodontic treatment, the ligaments need to become used to the new placement of the teeth, and it’s possible for the teeth to move back or shift into their previous positions. A retainer, worn at night, will keep teeth in their new position as the ligaments adjust.

Commitment

Invisalign clear aligners need to be worn to be successful. Brushing and flossing daily, cleaning the trays, and wearing your aligners conscientiously are the tools every patient needs to achieve success in their treatment. Commitment to wearing and maintaining the your aligner trays is key to a successful treatment outcome.
