What To Expect After Invisalign

What To Expect After Invisalign

So, is it finished after you are done with your invisalign treatment. Well, there is an important aspect to discuss when it comes to maintaining that perfect and healthy smile on long term basis and this is done by Invisalign Retainers. 

Once straightened, teeth usually have a tendency to move back to their original position and this is where the retainers play a significant role. They purposefully remind the teeth to remain straight after you are done with the active invisalign treatment.

There are two main types of retainers we offer:

  • Fixed Retainers: A fixed retainer is basically a thin, metal wire that’s adhered to the back of the teeth, on the tongue-side. These retainers stay permanent offering long term retention and even better, and no one can see you wearing them. There are different kinds of fixed retainers which are designed mainly on the basis of ease of cleaning and to provide maximum rigidity.
  • Removable Retainers: There are two types of removable retainers.
    • The first is the traditional wire retainer, also known as Hawley retainer. It consists of a thin metal wire that wraps around the front of teeth and a plastic piece that is seated against the roof of your mouth.
    • The second type of retainer is a clear plastic retainer referred to as 3 D or Essix retainer. It is very much similar to the Invisalign aligner and is made of a durable material.

Caring for Your Retainers

Caring for Your Retainers

There are certain things to keep in mind especially when it comes to caring for your retainers to ensure better hygiene and durability. Retainers are quite low maintenance appliances, so just few simple steps will help them do their job well.

  • For both Hawley and Essix retainers: Using a soft toothbrush, gently clean both sides of the retainer without using toothpaste. You can even use retainer cleaning solution or Efferdent for deep cleaning once in a while. A DIY mixture can be made using equal proportions of distilled water and white vinegar. Let your retainer sit in the solution for about 10-20 minutes.
  • If you have a fixed retainer after Invisalign, brushing twice a day around the wire and flossing once a day is mandatory. This will help prevent gum disease and tooth decay by preventing plaque accumulation and also deposition of food material.
  • Please take your retainers out when you want to eat or drink anything other than plain water.
  • Take your retainers out when swimming and always wear a mouthguard when playing sports.
  • Always store your retainer in the case when you are not wearing it.
  • Keep your retainers away from extreme heat.
  • Keep your retainers away from pets.
  • Eat a healthy, nutritious diet to promote oral health and keep cavities at bay.
  • Visit dentist regularly for dental check ups and cleanings.
