Dr. Chapman and his team at Chapman Orthodontics know what what’s needed ensure a successful treatment with Invisalign in the Wayne, IN area. Invisalign clear aligners are convenient, discreet, and removable by the wearer. They must be worn conscientiously, however, to be effective. Commitment, and a few handy tools, will guarantee Invisalign patients of Dr. Chapman a successful treatment outcome. 

Trays

A computer program called “ClinCheck” is used to determine a course of treatment with Invisalign. From this data, the Invisalign aligner trays are custom made for each patient. Invisalign is made of a clear thermoplastic material that is nearly invisible while being worn.  

Cleaning Materials

Most orthodontists like Dr. Chapman say that the best method to keep the Invisalign clear aligners clean is simply to brush them with toothpaste and rinse them in a denture cleaning solution. An Invisalign cleaning kit is available online. Keep your aligners odor-free, hygienic and clear with the Invisalign Aligner Cleaning System. Special cleaning crystals remove plaque from your Invisalign aligners within about 15 minutes. Pantry items like white vinegar can be effective in a pinch. 

Retainers

Teeth aren’t rigidly set in the jawbone. They are fixed in place by a collection of fibers called periodontal ligaments. After orthodontic treatment, the ligaments need to become used to the new placement of the teeth, and it’s possible for the teeth to move back or shift into their previous positions. A retainer, worn at night, will keep teeth in their new position as the ligaments adjust. 

Commitment

Invisalign clear aligners need to be worn to be successful. Brushing and flossing daily, cleaning the trays, and wearing the Invisalign aligners conscientiously are the tools every patient needs to achieve success in their treatment. Commitment to wearing and maintaining the Invisalign aligners is key to a successful treatment outcome.

How To Make Your Invisalign Treatment Quick and Easy

Invisalign Marion County IN

Invisalign patients of Dr. Peter Chapman enjoy a more comfortable and convenient orthodontic treatment with Invisalign in Marion County, IN. The Invisalign system of plastic aligners are effective at providing the wearer with a straighter smile while being much less noticeable in the mouth. Invisalign offers benefits that traditional braces can’t offer; they are removable by the wearer. This is a critical reason why many Chapman Orthodontics patients have chosen Invisalign for themselves.

How Do I Ensure Success with Invisalign?

Although Invisalign is one of the most advanced orthodontic treatments available today, patients are reminded that their teeth and the aligners need regular attention during treatment. To get the best results from treatment with Invisalign, Dr. Peter Chapman recommends to his patients:

  1. Keep Invisalign in a safe place: Invisalign aligners are compact and clear, and some patients find them easy to misplace. Always keep the Invisalign clear aligner trays in a case or safely tucked in a plastic bag within your pocket, purse, or bag. Do not wrap them in a napkin when taking them out to eat. Many patients end up accidentally tossing the napkin out in the trash! If you have pets at home, make sure too that your aligners are always high up and out of reach of probing paws. The plastic material may be appealing to them as a chew toy.

  2. Remove Invisalign to eat and drink: One of the great benefits of Invisalign is that they are removable. Dr. Peter Chapman says to take advantage of this! Always take your Invisalign trays out when you’re eating or drinking. Leaving them in may lead to staining of the trays or other damage, such as distortion of shape due to hot food or drinks. Plus, removing them makes eating much easier.

  3. Clean your Invisalign properly and thoroughly: To keep your Invisalign working well for your smile and for your oral health, be sure that you are always cleaning them correctly and completely. Invisalign trays should be cleaned at least twice a day, preferably after meals. Dr. Peter Chapman recommends his patients use a small toothbrush to softly brush the insides of the aligners with just a tiny drop of toothpaste. Some patients use denture cleaner as a soak for their Invisalign aligners. (Simply fill a cup with warm water, put the tablet in, and let the aligners soak.) Chapman Orthodontics says both methods will keep your Invisalign looking clean, feeling fresh, and working effectively.

  4. Wear Invisalign as directed: The most important aspect of treatment with Invisalign clear aligners is to use the system properly. Always follow the exact instructions from Chapman Orthodontics. Likely, this means never leaving the Invisalign trays out of your mouth for extended periods of time, and always being aware of updating the set of trays when the 2-3 week time period has elapsed. Patients should remember that the longer the Invisalign clear aligner trays are out of a patient’s mouth, they are not working to correct their orthodontic issue. This will extend the treatment time for the wearer.
