This advice is for patients who are being treated with Inviaslign Full, Lite, i7 and Teen.
For the first few days, your teeth may become tender as they start to move. This is only temporary and will settle down. You may also develop some ulcers in your mouth. Again, this only lasts a few days.
This will damage them. Use RetainerBrite on a daily basis.
You may have been given some aligners for you to change to over the coming weeks. It is very important that you follow your orthodontist’s advice carefully.
Sometimes, you may be advised to go back to a previous aligner, so please keep your aligners safe after you have finished with them.
Aligners should be placed in your blue aligner box during main meals and replaced immediately when you have finished. It is a good idea to brush your teeth after meal times, before replacing your aligners.
Avoid hot drinks when you have your aligners in. Also, avoid sugary and fizzy drinks.
Fluoride mouthwash helps to keep your teeth healthy during treatment. We advise that you use a mouthwash after you brush your teeth and braces. We sell fluoride mouthwash at reception.
If you have any problems, e.g. if you have broken your brace, please telephone the practice on 01642 243 080 during opening hours, and we will give you an appointment. Or you can leave a message on the answer machine, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
