Preparing for Adult Orthodontic Treatment

The discouraging connotation surrounding braces, typically implies that they’re solely for kids and teens. This has kept the idea of orthodontic treatment on the outskirts of many adult’s minds in Toronto, ON.. Invisalign®, however, is becoming increasingly popular within the adult demographic. We encourage adult orthodontic treatment not only for the aesthetic reasons, but also for the prevention of oral health issues.

Here are a few key points to keep in mind in preparing for orthodontic treatment:

• If you have sensitive teeth, Sensodyne is a great toothpaste to help desensitize your teeth.
• It is encouraged to practice excellent oral hygiene to prepare your gums for orthodontic treatment. Ask Dr. Mark Nalbandian for suggestions, and be sure to get regular cleanings every six months from your dentist.
• Treatment with Invisalign or braces may feel uncomfortable at first, this feeling will go away and become more natural.
• Chewing may also be more difficult, and consumption of certain foods may be impossible at first. However, unlike traditional braces Invisalign® is designed for you to be able to remove during meals and to brush and floss. Ask Dr. Nalbandian for a list of foods to avoid during those first few weeks.
• Your brushing routine may need to be amped up a bit or altered to fit more often into your schedule.

There are many benefits that come with Invisalign®, including improved self-esteem and better dental health. Thanks to Invisalign®, you can straighten your teeth without cramping your style. Contact Dr. Nalbandian at (647) 344-9473 or visit Wired Orthodontics in Toronto, ON to start your orthodontic journey with Invisalign®!
