What To Expect After Invisalign® Treatment

Posted: July 15, 2023

In a study, most Americans responded that when meeting a person for the first time they notice their smile above anything else. The confidence an owned smile can give is something unparalleled and only something you realize after being embarrassed to show your smile. Though it shouldn’t, getting braces or wearing corrective oral gear is usually associated with some level of shame or embarrassment. Thankfully, Invisalign® helps alleviate that by providing a relatively unnoticeable, invisible form of corrective oral gear that can help you uncover the radiant smile you’ve always had and return a sense of confidence to the aspect of you people notice first! If you’ve been wondering about Invisalign® or already have Invisalign® and are wondering about what comes after it, then keep reading! 

After Invisalign® Comes Retainers

Once your teeth have been aligned after your prescribed time period, you will be in the crucial step of maintenance. Though you may love the results in the mirror, do not be tempted to relax the discipline necessary to continue your oral corrective experience. Though your teeth may now be aligned, the results can be temporary without properly shifting the dental sockets as well, which is where retainers come in. The maintenance, or retainer period, is much longer and almost more vital to a long-term alignment than the original Invisalign® process. However, don’t worry, with Invisalign® the retainers you will have will also be clear and they will be more comfortable than your aligners were because the retainer is designed to just hold your teeth in place and prevent them from moving back to their original positions. The typical timeline for wearing retainers after Invisalign® treatment is three to six months; however, cases vary and to know the best course of action for you and your teeth, it is best to speak to your dentist. It is important to note: If you do not consistently wear your retainer, it not only may extend the time you have to wear your retainer, but you may also need to go back and wear your aligners again.
