5 Ways to Maximize Your Invisalign Investment Marietta, GA

When you invest time and money into something, it is important that you do all you can to get the most out of your purchase. Invisalign is no different. Invisalign is popular orthodontic treatment that relies on comfortable clear aligners rather bulky metal braces. While Invisalign is known for convenience and comfort, it is still an orthodontic treatment that requires sacrifice in time and money.

In terms of straightening your smile, you’ll find that Invisalign is one of the easiest options available. However, don’t lose sight of the fact that this clear aligner therapy still needs to be used properly to get maximize effectiveness. Here are a few tips to make sure you get the biggest return on your Invisalign investment, which means gaining a straight, beautiful smile as quickly as possible:

Don’t forget to brush and floss daily.

Invisalign does an incredible job at moving your teeth into proper position. However, the plastic aligners can inhibit your saliva from doing its job of rinsing your teeth and gums throughout the day. Fortunately, you can remove Invisalign for daily oral hygiene. It is important that you take this duty seriously and spend time flossing and brushing each day. This will prevent dental problems like decay and gum disease that could impede your orthodontic treatment.

Don’t ignore the first 48-hour rule.

The initial two days of each aligner set is the most important. During this 48 hour timespan, you will be instructed to wear your aligners as much as possible. This is important to ensure your teeth respond and adapt to the new positioning.

Don’t leave them out more 2 hours each day.

Invisalign works fast if you wear the trays for at least 22 hours of the day. This leaves you with two hours to take them out for brushing, flossing and eating. Forgetting to put your aligners back in your mouth in a timely manner could prolong your treatment time and delay your results.

Don’t disrupt the order and timing of your aligners.

Your orthodontist will give you detailed instructions on when to change out your aligners and which set of custom aligners to use. Changing them out too soon or waiting a few days to start a new aligner set can limit what you get out of your Invisalign investment.

Don’t give up if it feels weird at first.

While Invisalign is known for its superior comfort compared to traditional braces, it is still an appliance on your teeth that will require getting used to. The adjustment period of wearing your aligners is typically brief, but it is important to stick through it and not take out your aligners when they feel “weird”.

  • Kim P.

    Dr Patel answered my call for practically in the middle of the night. He came and had no other appointments for the day! Just to help me. The facility was immaculate and him and his hygienist were so helpful. I wish I remembered her name. It had been a while since I had been to the dentist and they never made me feel judged. Great team of people. If you are looking for a dentist give Dr. P and his team a try you won't be disappointed! See u in 2 weeks Dr. P.!i

  • Lisa O.

    Hands down the best dentist I have found. I took all three of my kids and myself. This is a welcoming, child-friendly team. It is readily apparent how well this team works together to make every patient, no matter what age, feel comfortable. I appreciate these people so much. Thank you for being such an outstanding dentist team, Pure Smiles!

  • Carmelita Ch.-H.

    Doctor/Staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Always make sure you feel comfortable. Pam is an excellent Hygienist. Office space is always clean and tidy. I would recommend this office as we have been going there for the past 12 years.

  • Hudson H.

    I usually HATE the dentist! I saw all these good reviews and was a bit skeptical, but after visiting this office I now know they’re all legit. Pure Smiles made me feel comfortable and was very considerate to me. I normally leave the dentist angry, this time however I was so pleased! Everyone was empathetic and went over and beyond to help me. Everything from scheduling to payment options, they cared. I actually want to floss now.

  • Michelle P.

    I only have positive things to say about Dr.Patel and the staff at Pure Smiles in Marietta. I was in bad shape with a wisdom tooth that needed to be removed. I was seen the same morning that I called, and everything was finished in under an hour. I received a check-up call that afternoon, which I felt was very thoughtful. I went back for an overall exam the following week, and I left their office feeling great about my future dental health. Do not hesitate to call Pure Smiles. The staff is kind, efficient, and up-to-date on dental advances.
