When it comes to any decision, it’s important to prepare yourself so you know what to expect. Here at Thomas Karagianis, we want to help you prepare for the journey involved in achieving the perfect smile you always dreamed of.

Here are three tips to help you with your smile transformation with Invisalign®:

1. Remember that everyone has a different smile transformation. Some people’s teeth and jaws move slower than others. However, no matter how long or short the process is for you, be open to the idea that you may have to wear more aligners than you thought.

2. Oral hygiene must be your top priority. If you don’t properly brush and floss often, plaque and food particles can get caught in your Invisalign aligner, which can cause bad breath and cavities. To prevent this, brush and floss your teeth after each meal and snack. Your teeth will stay cleaner, your breath will stay fresher, and you will have healthier gums and whiter teeth.

3. The recommended wear time is at least 22 hours a day. This may be easier said than done. Keep the aligner in your mouth unless you’re eating or brushing your teeth. This will help you achieve results faster and more accurately.
