The Importance of Compliance with Invisalign
One of the most satisfying and successful aspects of my orthodontic practice is the use of Invisalign aligners. I love this treatment option for straightening teeth because it is less intrusive than braces, and much more comfortable for my patients.
An important thing to be aware of when starting Invisalign treatment is that compliance is vital. You need to be committed to wearing your aligners for up to 23 hours a day. Braces are attached to your teeth, so you have no choice but to wear them. Invisalign aligners can be removed for eating, and it may be tempting to remove them at other times as well.
Why is Compliance Important?
Invisalign aligners come equipped as trays, fitted precisely for your mouth and teeth. They only work when they are properly placed in your mouth. It is important to wear them for up to 23 hours a day. They are only to be removed in order to eat or clean your teeth.
If you adhere to these guidelines, and make it to your appointments to keep track of your progress and get new trays, your treatment process will be successful at a faster rate. Not wearing your trays consistently can slow down the process.
Invisalign aligners are notably more comfortable than metal braces, but they do take some getting used to. Wearing them as often as you should from the start will help you adjust to them quicker, which will make them easier to wear, which will speed up the process!
Knowing this is an important first step when considering Invisalign aligners. If you feel that you have the discipline and dedication to adhere to these compliance rules, then Invisalign aligners may be the perfect solution for your orthodontic needs.
Tips for Maintaining Compliance
Be mentally prepared to commit to wearing your Invisalign aligners. When making the decision to commit to something, it is helpful to have a plan. Let your friends and family know about your treatment. They can help you be vigilant! Always remember to keep tissues or a designated container available, to store your aligners when you are eating.
Remember why you decided to get Invisalign aligners in the first place. The evenness of your teeth and bite won’t just improve your smile, but your overall health. When your teeth are straight, they won’t chip or break. You’ll be better equipped to eat the healthy foods you enjoy and need to maintain your energy level and lifestyle.
Your teeth will be easier to clean once they are straight and even. Your dentist appointments will be quicker and less of a hassle with straighter teeth. Your smile will be brighter, and your confidence will be higher!
The better you comply, and remember to look forward to the results of wearing the aligners, the quicker and more successful your treatment will be. It is a long term investment, and a worthy commitment to your health and life.
