Caring for Your Smile After Invisalign

At Epic Orthodontics, it’s our goal to give you an absolutely epic smile. Through our orthodontic treatments, such as braces, Invisalign, or Invisalign Teen, we’re sure to give you the smile that you’ve dreamed about. When your Invisalign treatment is finally over, your smile may be looking great, but that doesn’t mean that you can stop caring for your beautiful smile. In fact, it’s just as important as ever because now you need to maintain your smile. Here are a few recommendations of things you should do to care for your smile after your orthodontic treatment with Invisalign is over.

Keep Brushing and Flossing Regularly

It’s vital that brushing and flossing continues to be a committed part of your oral hygiene regimen. You’ll want to brush twice a day (once after breakfast and again before bed) and floss daily in order to prevent against tooth decay and gum disease.

Wear Your Retainers

After your orthodontic treatment is completed, it’s important for you to wear your retainers as often as your orthodontist has prescribed. While Invisalign will move your teeth into a straight and healthy alignment, your retainer is needed to make sure that your new smile is maintained. Teeth are vulnerable to shifting back into unfavorable positions after orthodontic treatment, which is why a retainer needs to be used.

Visit Your Dentist Twice a Year

If you want to make sure that your smile is as healthy as it can be, you’ll need to go see a dentist twice a year. During these checkups, the dentist will benefit you in two critical ways. The first is that the dentist will check for cavities and other problems to make sure that your teeth are in good shape. The dentist will also give you a professional teeth cleaning to make sure that your oral hygiene is at its optimal level.
