Invisalign is becoming one of the most popular teeth straightening treatments available, as it enables patients to finally get beautifully straight smiles without bulky metal braces. However, even if you’re sure that it is the right treatment for you, you probably still have plenty of questions and that’s where our dentists here at Vogue Dental Care can help.
Will Invisalign affect my diet?
One of the best parts about Invisalign in Luton is that it allows our patients to eat whatever they want during treatment. All you need to do is take out your aligners before you tuck in. However, there are a few little things you can do with your diet that will make your treatment go a little smoother.
Firstly, we recommend you try to only drink water when you have your trays in, as coloured liquids can stain the trays. Drinking plenty of water when you’re wearing your trays is an easy way to keep them clean and stain-free. Also, it’s best to cut down on any sticky foods that could cling to your teeth and become trapped against the trays, leading to increased tooth decay. Fortunately, these are all minor adjustments compared to what most people have to do with traditional braces.
Will Invisalign change how I brush my teeth?
The good news is you’ll be able to brush and floss your teeth like normal with Invisalign in Luton because you can simply take your trays out before you begin. The only change in your routine is that you’ll need to spend a little time cleaning your aligners. Cleaning them will be very similar to brushing your teeth, but you may need to use a different brush/toothpaste to ensure that you don’t damage the trays. Our dentists will let you know the best products to use when you begin your treatment, so you can keep both your teeth and trays looking great for your whole treatment time.
Is there an age restriction for Invisalign in Luton?
We normally recommend Invisalign for our patients over 18 years, but fortunately, there is no upper-age limit. This is great news for our adult patients who previously thought it was too late for them to straighten their teeth.
