Crooked teeth can have a great impact on your confidence level. Thinking about getting an invisalign treatment in Mississauga? Here are a few things you will want to know before you go ahead with the procedure:
For the treatment to work, you will need to wear invisalign clear aligners (trays) for about 20 to 22 hours in a day. That’s going to leave just 2 to 4 hours of break. It’s going to be a tight timeframe for brushing your teeth and invisalign trays. Ask yourself if you’re all right with that, Shape says.
Snacks will be a thing of the past
You only have 4 hours to go without those trays and that’s going to leave little wiggle room in your schedule for snacks. Also, you will need to brush your teeth and trays after every meal. That’s going to be enough to put you off snacks for some time.
You will lose weight
That’s a handy side-benefit of getting invisalign treatment in Mississauga. If you loved snacks before, you’re going to have a harder time indulging on them with your trays on. That’s going to help you cut down on all the junk food and sweets.
Your toothbrush is your best friend
If you still find time in your schedule for a snack or two, then learn to bring your toothbrush with you anywhere you go. Whenever you pop that chicken, cereal or chocolate bar in your mouth, you will have to get into the habit of brushing your teeth and trays straight after.
It might not be right for you
This treatment is best for fixing crooked teeth, minor under/overbites and gaps between your teeth. But severe cases will still require wire braces. Your dentist will need to evaluate your condition to determine what type of treatment is ideal for you.
