At Premier Dental of Oakwood, we believe in the importance of maintaining the results of your orthodontic treatment. Many patients who undergo orthodontic treatment are instructed on the significance of wearing a retainer after completing their teeth alignment therapy. However, some patients neglect to wear their retainer, reversing the progress made over several years of orthodontic treatment. Over time, neglecting to wear a retainer can cause your teeth, gums, and jaw to become misaligned. That is why we recommend Invisalign retainers to help you maintain your beautiful smile after orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign is a highly customizable product, and our experienced dentists at Premier Dental will create a custom Invisalign retainer designed to fit the shape of your teeth and gums. These clear aligner retainers are intended to be worn while you sleep, just like traditional retainers, to keep your teeth from shifting back to their natural position. Using an Invisalign retainer can ensure that the hard work you put into wearing, cleaning, and maintaining your Invisalign aligners is not lost after completing your treatment.
Caring for your Invisalign retainer is vital to maintaining your oral health. Your Premier Dental team will go over the details with you in the office, including how to clean your retainer, when and how long you should wear it each day, and options for replacement if you lose it.
Correcting an abnormal bite will not only create a beautiful smile but also result in a healthier mouth. Failure to correct an abnormal bite could result in further oral health issues, such as tooth decay, gum disease, tooth loss, affected speech and chewing, abnormal wear to tooth enamel, and jaw problems. Therefore, it is critical to wear your retainer after completing your Invisalign treatment to avoid dental problems associated with misaligned teeth.
If you are new to Invisalign, we have some exciting news for you. Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created specifically for you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners gradually and gently shifts your teeth into place based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans for you. Unlike traditional braces, there are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just need to pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks until your treatment is complete. The best part about the Invisalign process is that most people won't even know you're straightening your teeth.
At Premier Dental of Oakwood, we are dedicated to helping you maintain a healthy and beautiful smile. If you are interested in Invisalign treatment or need an Invisalign retainer, our experienced dentists are here to help you. Contact us today to schedule an appointment and take the first step towards a better, healthier smile.
