Dr. Gates has a few Invisalign® tips!

A couple of weeks ago we blogged about the advantage of Invisalign treatment at Round Rock Orthodontics. Today, we thought we'd share a few helpful Invisalign tips with you.

When wearing your Invisalign aligners, Dr. Gates wants you to ask yourself the following questions:

1. Am I eating with my aligners on? - These aligners are removable and should be taken out when you eat.

2. Am I drinking anything other than water with my aligners on? - Though it's not a necessity for you to take out your aligners while you drink, think about how sticky a soda is. If you take out your aligners when drinking a soda, you have a better chance of keeping your aligners clean.

3. Am I brushing before putting the trays on? - The aligners have both an inside and outside. Keeping the outside clean is easy. Keeping the inside clean is also easy: just make sure you've brushed your teeth before putting the trays on.

These are all very simple steps, and ultimately, they help to keep you building good oral habits. If you have any questions about Invisalign or your treatment here at Round Rock Orthodontics, don't hesitate to give us a call!
