You’ve always wanted a beautiful straight smile, and now you’ve got it after Invisalign treatment. Now that your treatment is done, you need to protect your smile to keep it looking great. It took a lot of hard work to perfect your smile, we don’t want to see simple mistakes cause a blemish. As a dentist for Invisalign in Palm Beach Gardens, we have everything you need to know about caring for your teeth after Invisalign.
Brushing and Flossing
While brushing and flossing don’t directly play a role in keeping your teeth straight, it does help ensure proper oral health. Brushing and flossing are needed to keep your teeth and gums healthy. If you skip on brushing and flossing, you open the door to gum disease and tooth decay. Both gum disease and tooth decay can eventually lead to your teeth becoming misaligned as the supporting structures become damaged. Not to mention, you’ll hurt the overall appearance of your smile as your teeth and gums become noticeably damaged.
In some cases, your dentist in Palm Beach Gardens may recommend the use of a retainer after you’ve completed your treatment. Whether or not you will need a retainer will depend on your individual needs. Should you need a retainer, it will help protect your teeth from moving back into their prior position. If you need a retainer, you will have certain restrictions while wearing it, such as avoiding hard or crunchy foods.
Visit Your Dentist
To ensure the success of your treatment and to protect your beautiful smile, you will still need to visit your dentist at least twice a year. In addition to regular checkups and cleanings, we will take x-rays and monitor the alignment of your teeth. If we notice any problems, we can quickly correct them before they cause any damage to your beautiful new smile.
Protect Your Teeth
Now that your teeth are straight, you want to take extra precautions to protect them from damage. For example, if you participate in sports or activities that may cause injury to the mouth, be sure to wear a mouth guard. Those who grind or clench their teeth should also wear a mouth guard to protect their teeth from potential damage.
