Included in your treatment plan will be:
- directions for how to care for your retainers
- Information on how long you will wear each set of your retainers
- what you can expect during the various stages of treatment
Changing Your Invisalign Retainers
You’ll wear each set for about two weeks and only take them out while eating, drinking or brushing your teeth. With every change of retainer, your teeth will gradually shift into their ideal positions, getting you one step closer to the smile you want! If you don’t feel any pressure on your teeth when you’ve started to use a new retainer, you should contact your orthodontist immediately. A lack of pressure usually means that your teeth aren’t being shifted into their proper positions.
The amount of retainers you will go through is dependent on how long your treatment course is. If you have treatment for a full year, you could go through as many as 50 sets of retainers!
Attending Regular Visits
As with any dental or orthodontic care, making sure you don’t miss your regular visits is a vital part of your Invisalign treatment! Your orthodontist will look for progress, regress and generally keep tabs on how your teeth are moving. If you skip out on any of your regularly scheduled visits, you could be putting your future smile in jeopardy, or at least delaying it if you have an issue that isn’t addressed as soon as it should be.
