After Invisalign Treatment

KCC Orthodontics Blog After Invisalign Treatment Retainers

Invisalign clear aligner treatment is one of the most commonly chosen orthodontic options. You or your child can achieve the healthy smile you desire with a clear plastic. The advanced technology used in Invisalign is amazing! What happens after Invisalign treatment though?

We recommend these few things to maintain your new healthy smile lifelong!

End of Treatment Results

When you complete Invisalign with Dr. Gutierrez, you can be confident that your teeth will be straight. There is no more spacing or crowding. Your bite will be in alignment as well. When a doctor monitors your Invisalign treatment, you can remain worry-free. Dr. G does not focus solely on straight teeth. He sees the mouth and bite as a whole.

Invisalign treatment requires that you wear a retainer at the end of treatment to retain your new smile. This is the case with the results of any other orthodontic treatment as well.

Retainer Wear After Invisalign

Katy ClearChoice Orthodontics includes retainers in every treatment. These maintain your newly straightened teeth. Our teeth have memory and will want to return to their previous misaligned position. Retainers are necessary to keep your results. 

The good news is that we offer a premier retainer, made using 3D technology. Our Clinical Assistant will scan your teeth with the iTero digital scanner. This is the same process we used at the beginning of your treatment! This digital scan is then sent to the Invisalign lab to make your retainer. 

Your retainer will arrive within a week or two. At this point, your orthodontic treatment is complete! Your 3D printed retainer is made of a plastic similar to the aligners you wore during treatment. They differ in that they are made of a more durable, longer-lasting material that can last even up to 10 years. 

Dental Requirments After Treatment

After Invisalign treatment, there is no need to straighten your teeth again. (Unless you don’t maintain retainer wear.) Keep good oral hygiene at home and  continue to visit your dentist twice a year for a cleaning and check up.

Orthodontic Visits After Invisalign

Dr. Gutierrez may request you come in for two appointments after Invisalign treatment. In the beginning weeks, your bite will begin to settle in the position it ended up in. Continual retainer wear helps make this happen. 

Retainer check appointments allow Dr. G to confirm that your bite is settling. The necessity of these appointments varies from case to case. We want to ensure the results are matching the investment you made!

Doesn’t everyone romanticize orthodontic elastics?! 🥰😂

Not everyone has to wear elastics during their orthodontic treatment. If you do, wearing elastics consistently is vital to completing your treatment on time! ✔️ May as well romanticize it! 💙

It may be April Fools today, but this is not a joke… it actually happened!

Story Time:

One of the first things new hires contribute to the team is by refilling our glove jars! Well...one of our girls, when she started, forgot to check for the glove size before filling Dr. G's glove jar!

She put size small gloves in when they are supposed to be large! Dr. G had trouble getting those gloves on when it was time to see a patient and thought someone MUST be playing a joke on him!! OOPS! 😬🤪 It really was an accident!

These things happen but thankfully they don't stop us from doing what we do best. 😀 Giving YOU the smile you've always wanted.

Have a blessed day, KCC fam! Hope you have a good laugh today with lighthearted april fools jokes! 😂
