Invisalign has allowed millions of people to straighten out their teeth without having to worry about the visible metal parts or dietary restrictions required by traditional braces. Since Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible, they can make it easier for many patients to approach people and smile proudly, which is of vast importance in the dating world. Here are a few pointers to help you comply with your Invisalign treatment the next time you’re out on the town with a special someone.

Keep Your Smile Sharp by Keeping Your Invisalign Clear Aligners Clean

While Invisalign is a convenient way to straighten out your teeth, it requires effort and discipline on the part of the patient. While it’s crucial to thoroughly clean your aligners with a soft brush and approved cleanser every day, it’s also important to rinse them off every time you remove them to flush away debris clinging to them. You must also brush and floss your teeth thoroughly after eating before putting your aligners back in.

If your aligners and teeth are not kept clean during Invisalign treatment, your aligners will accrue stains and develop an unpleasant smell that is sure to make it hard to be attractive. To make things worse, if your teeth are not clean when you wear your aligners, food debris and sugary residues trapped between them and your teeth can breed harmful bacteria that cause cavities and gum disease.

Mind Your Timing

For Invisalign clear aligners to properly realign your teeth, they must be worn for at least twenty hours every day and should only be removed for meals and oral hygiene. While you’ll have to clean your teeth after eating, it’s also key to wait at least thirty minutes afterward before you brush to give your teeth a chance to recover. When you’re planning out your romantic evening, try to schedule some time between dinner and the movie so you can give your teeth a good brushing and flossing.

There’s no reason you can’t look your best when you’re wearing Invisalign. By keeping these tips in mind, you can impress your date while keeping your orthodontic treatment on track.
