How do I use and care for my Invisalign trays?

Invisalign Aligners in Dublin CA Area

Invisalign treatment has revolutionized how we can achieve straighter teeth and continues to be a popular option for patients seeking a solution that doesn’t require metal brackets and wire braces over the teeth. At StarBrite Dental of Dublin, California, Drs. Munira Lokhandwala, Maryum Tariq, and Richard Yai work with patients to educate them more about Invisalign aligners and how to use them.

How do I use my Invisalign aligners to straighten my teeth?

Using Invisalign aligners to straighten your teeth is a simple, effective process. You’ll start by visiting Drs. Munira Lokhandwala, Maryum Tariq, and Richard Yai to discuss the treatment plan. If you are an appropriate candidate, impressions of your teeth are made to get a mold of the current alignment of the dental arch. Your dentist will send these to Invisalign, the company that will create customized aligners tailored to your needs.

When you receive your aligners, you’ll wear them for two weeks each before switching to the next aligner in the series. Each set of aligners will shift your teeth slightly closer to their desired final position. You should try to wear them all day and night (apart from when eating or drinking), and make sure they fit snuggly over your teeth.

How do I care for my Invisalign aligners?

Your Invisalign aligners should be cleaned regularly to help prevent staining and bad breath. You can use a soft-bristled toothbrush with water or mild hand soap that your dentist may suggest. It is important not to use hot water when cleaning them as this could cause warping. Also, keep them away from pets or small children that could damage or swallow them.
