One of the biggest perks of Invisalign is that you can remove your aligners! This feature makes it so much easier to take care of your teeth during your journey with Jupiter orthodontics. Here are some simple measures you should take to keep your smile bright:
Brush Twice Daily
When you have Invisalign, those aligners are putting pressure on your teeth. This means, when food and bacteria get trapped, your saliva is not going to wash it away. So, you need to be on top of your game when it comes to brushing. Being able to take your Invisalign off is such a great benefit, so take advantage of it and maintain your oral health.
Watch What You Eat
Instead of munching on sugary sweets, bite into something more fibrous. Apple slices, pear slices, and even cucumber or carrots can act as a natural brush in a way throughout the day. So, instead of feeling the need to brush your teeth after each meal, these can help keep your teeth clean.
Don’t let bacteria linger. Your teeth are going to go through a lot. So, using a fluoridated mouthwash may do some good. Be sure to speak with your dentist about this as well. They can give you tips and tricks to make sure your teeth don’t get too sensitive.
Clean Your Aligners
If it’s not on your teeth, your aligners are sure to hold a bit of bacteria. Using a gentle cleanser, as recommended by your dentist, can keep your aligners fresh. This’ll ward off the buildup of bacteria and early stages of decay and gum disease.
