Maintaining Oral Health With Invisalign
Correcting misaligned teeth leads to better overall oral health. Teeth that aren’t properly aligned can create pockets for bacteria to form and eat through enamel. Enamel is the clear, protective coat around the tooth that prevents cavities from reaching the dentine and causing damage. Misaligned teeth can create a bite that grinds the enamel down and makes the patient more vulnerable to periodontal disease and tooth decay.
The Smile Specialists are committed to helping patients improve their overall oral health by providing them with top-notch orthodontic care. Dr. Pavlow and Dr. Straus are top 1% Invisalign providers, and they are dedicated to offering the highest level of alignment treatment. Invisalign is a clear aligner that straightens teeth without the use of brackets or wire. Every couple of weeks, patients come in for a new, custom-fitted aligner to correct their misaligned teeth. Those who want top-notch orthodontic treatment without the complications that come with braces should opt for Invisalign.
Call 610-489-6032 to set up on obligation-free first appointment. During your first visit, we will take an X-ray of your teeth and either Dr. Pavlow or Dr. Straus will consult you on the kind of treatment that will work best for your complete oral care. The first visit is free, and by scheduling a time on our online calendar, you can get started as soon as possible. Thanks to our cutting-edge orthodontic technology, The Smile Specialists are able to provide families across Pennsylvania with the industry’s best oral care.
How to Properly Clean Your Invisalign
Keeping your Invisalign clear and unnoticeable requires careful maintenance. While wearing your aligners, abstain from eating or drinking anything besides water. Only remove your aligners while brushing, flossing, or eating. Maintaining oral health is crucial while correcting your teeth. Brushing three times a day, flossing daily, and never missing visits with The Smile Specialists will ensure that while your teeth are straightening, they are staying clean too. Since Invisalign fits tight against your teeth, rinsing and gently brushing them with a soft-bristled toothbrush will prevent harmful bacteria from growing against your teeth. Check with The Smile Specialists for recommendations on different antibacterial soaps for cleaning your aligners.
