Sbenati Dentistry has today made public 8 before unknown facts about its Orthodontic Treatment ‘Invisalign’. These yet unreleased hacks give insight into patients wearing aligners, using them properly and making sure their teeth straightening process is beneficial in multiple ways. The following factoids are definitely newsworthy.
The 8 items include nuggets such as how:
Brushing teeth with whitening toothpaste right before aligners are put on. Whitening toothpaste works well at fighting surface stains on the teeth, and would work much better if the whitening solution in the toothpaste wasn’t washed away immediately by rinsing, drinking and eating. The Invisalign aligners act as a barrier for the teeth and will hold the toothpaste against them for a longer period of time, resulting in more effective whitening.
Use the times aligners aren’t worn to clean them. If the patient is about to eat dinner know, patients can soak the trays in water and cleaning solution. This cuts down the time outside of eating and brushing that patients don’t have the aligners in, which can in turn speed up the teeth straightening process. Be sure to not use coloured mouthwash for the cleaning, as this can stain the trays and rub off on the teeth (nobody wants purple teeth).
Before patients get used to having the plastics in their mouths, it can cause some initial discomfort. Sometimes the edges of the trays can be sharper than expected, and can dig into the soft tissue of the mouth. If the patient has a nail buffer, they can use it to smooth out the sharp edges and improve comfort instantly.
Keep a small oral hygiene kit in a backpack, briefcase or purse. This is helpful because those who wear Invisalign will need to brush and floss more often. It is important to brush before putting the aligners in to reduce and remove food that can effect the straightening. Don’t forget the chewies either. These are small, round cylinders that Invisalign users bite down on to secure their aligners in place. If they are forgotten, patients can get creative by using a pen, cutlery wrapped in a napkin or even their own thumb.
Whilst talking about tools for the aligners, there are little gadgets that aid with their removal. This helps avoid putting fingers in the mouth and using the nails to get behind and pull out the trays. This makes removing the aligners quick and easy.
Use a phone’s timer and reminders to make sure the aligners are being put back in on time. It is recommended to wear them for 20-22 hours a day for optimal teeth straightening progress. This will ensure that the Invisalign treatment is on schedule and proceeding as planned.
Along with the other contents of the oral hygiene kid, patients should include their Invisalign case. It is the most hygienic way to store the aligners, especially when patients are out of the house (at a restaurant for example). This also helps keep track of them, it has been reported that patients lose their aligners more often when their cases aren’t handy. It may be helpful to make the screen saver of the cellular phone a photo of the case so it won’t be forgotten.
Aligners should be switched right before bed time. The Invisalign trays work the best when they are sitting in the mouth for a prolonged and undisrupted time. While patients are sleeping is perfect for this. This allows more time for the new aligner to move the teeth towards their optimal position
