How to Get the Most from Invisalign

Orthodontist serving Stapleton, Denver, Cherry Creek & Nearby Areas of Colorado

Invisalign can be an ideal orthodontic treatment option for adults with unpleasant memories of wearing metal braces as teenagers. Denver Invisalign provider Dr. Robert Rudman is in the top 1% of practitioners of this procedure worldwide. To determine whether or not you’re a candidate for Invisalign, Dr. Rudman will first assess your mouth for issues such as:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowding of teeth within the mouth
  • Under bite or overbite
  • Teeth separated by gaps or spaces

If Invisalign is a suitable orthodontic treatment for you, Dr. Rudman will take a 3-D image of your mouth and use it to create a series of clear, removable aligners customized to fit your teeth and bite. Basic instructions to care for your Invisalign aligner trays include:

  • Wearing your aligners for 20-22 hours each day
  • Switching to a new aligner every two weeks
  • Visiting Dr. Rudman every six to eight weeks to make sure the Invisalign treatment is working properly and receive a new set of aligner trays

In order to attain the best results from Invisalign, it’s important to preserve the integrity of your aligners throughout their two-week lifespan. By taking the following steps, your aligners will remain intact and functional:

  • Remove your aligners for daily oral hygiene, including brushing and flossing
  • Take your aligners out before eating or playing sports
  • Clean your aligner trays daily using a simple toothpaste and toothbrush, then rinsing in lukewarm water

By observing these steps, Invisalign treatment could correct your teeth and bite to meet your orthodontic needs in as little as one year, a third of the time it can take for traditional braces to achieve the same effect.
