What You Need to Know Before Getting Invisalign®

Crooked teeth can dent your self-esteem. If you’re tired of living in insecurity, maybe it’s time for you to consider teeth straightening options. Two of the most popular orthodontic treatments today are braces and Invisalign in Pompano Beach. 

These two function pretty much the same way to bring your teeth into proper alignment, but the most obvious difference between them is their design. Most people, especially adults, prefer Invisalign because of its sleek and nearly invisible design. If you’re curious about Invisalign, here’s what you need to know before getting them.

Invisalign Facts You Should Know 

Wear Them Everyday 

Invisalign® is, without doubt, an effective treatment, but it can be useless if you don’t wear them. Unlike braces that are irremovable, Invisalign can be taken out if you drink, eat, or brush your teeth. But, if you keep forgetting to put them back on, your treatment will be delayed. 

To get the best results, you should wear them all day for the first two days. For the succeeding days until the treatment is over, you should wear them for a minimum of 22 hours a day. 

It Can Affect Your Speech 

One of the things you’ll notice when you wear Invisalign is it will alter your speech. During the first few days, while your mouth is still adjusting to the device, it will make you sound like you have a lisp. This may feel weird, but don’t worry; over time, you’ll get used to the change. Orthodontists recommend you learn how to speak while you’re wearing Invisalign.
