When you look around at your friends, and you are envious of their gorgeous smiles, you may need to think about doing something about your teeth. Perhaps your teeth are crooked, or not spaced properly. You might also have a small problem with your bite. While you want to fix your teeth, you don’t want to wear braces as an adult. We have a solution for you. You can fix your teeth without braces through the use of Invisalign. Here are some tips so that you can get the most of your time with Invisalign aligners.
Tips for Invisalign
Invisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners. These aligners work by gradually moving your teeth just a tiny amount at a time. You wear the aligners for 22 hours a day. You take them out to eat, drink, brush and floss your teeth. To get the most out of your aligners, there are a couple of things you need to do. First, be sure that you are wearing your aligners all the time, even when you are sleeping. By wearing your aligners all the time, you are allowing your teeth time to shift and move to a better, straighter position in your mouth. Second, be sure that you are keeping up with your appointments to see us. If you don’t come and see us every other month, you won’t be able to get new sets of aligners, and your teeth won’t get a chance to move.
With a little time and a little patience with wearing Invisalign aligners, you’ll be able to get the teeth you’ve been wanting all these years. When you’re ready to do something about those crooked or poorly spaced teeth, you need to give us a call. Call us at 212.752.7188, or you can come by and see us at 121 East 60th Street, 10th Floor, New York City, New York, 10022.
