Invisalign is one of the more common treatment options used to straighten teeth. The reason that Invisalign is so popular is that, unlike braces, the aligners are not noticeable. Invisalign uses clear aligners that pop onto the teeth so that you are not able to spot them.
In this article, we are going to talk a little bit about the things that you need to know about Invisalign.
The first thing that you should know is that the aligners may cause a little bit of pain and discomfort when you start the treatment. The reason for this is that the aligners have the job of shifting the teeth. As the teeth move to a different position it will cause some pain. The good news is, that after a couple of days this pain and discomfort will go away.
Another thing that you should know about Invisalign is that the aligners should be cleaned each day. To clean the aligners you can use a toothbrush and toothpaste similar to how you brush your teeth. The aligners need to be cleaned because they are worn for the majority of the day. If they are not clean they may cause problems for your oral health.
