Invisalign in Forest Glen, MD, works by putting gradual pressure on the teeth to slowly shift them into the right location. Studies show that 22 hours a day is the ideal amount to get the job done. You can remove them to brush and floss, and for eating.
The time needed to get your teeth aligned correctly depends on the condition of your teeth now and how complex the alignment issues are. Your dentist at Spring Dental Associates can explain the factors involved and give you a timeline for the work. As a rule, it takes about 12 months for most adults.
Right after you get them fitted, you might lisp for a day or two. But eventually your tongue will figure out how to deal with them. Then your lisp or any changes in your speech will disappear.
You can eat anything when you wear Invisalign in Forest Glen, MD. You can remove them to eat, so your regular teeth will do their normal job of chewing. It is crucial to brush your teeth after each meal and to floss once a day.
Invisalign aligners very rarely slip off for any reason. You can sleep, laugh and talk without worry. They are made to fit quite firmly over your teeth.
They have their own cleaning system, which works best. You can also brush them with toothpaste and then rinse them off in warm water. Your dentist at Spring Dental Associates can show you how to do it.
