invisalign-near-clark-county-waDr. Tyler Pritchard and his team of Invisalign experts here at Pritchard Orthodontics near Clark County, WA know what it takes for orthodontic treatment with this system to be successful. Invisalign clear aligners are convenient, discreet, and removable by the wearer, however they must be worn conscientiously to be effective, and staying committed will guarantee a successful treatment outcome.

Trays

A computer program called ClinCheck is used to determine your course of treatment with Invisalign. This system uses a series of clear aligners that are made of a clear thermoplastic material that is nearly invisible while being worn, and from the data collected by ClinCheck, the aligners are custom made for each of our patients.

Cleaning Materials

Here at Pritchard Orthodontics we believe that the best method for cleaning your clear aligners is to simply brush them with toothpaste and rinse them in a denture cleaning solution. Another way to keep your aligners odor-free, hygienic, and clear, is to purchase an Invisalign cleaning kit which uses special cleaning crystals to remove plaque from them within about 15 minutes. And moreover, pantry items like white vinegar can be effective.

Retainers

Did you know that during treatment your teeth arent rigidly set in the jawbone? In fact, they are fixed in place by a collection of fibers called periodontal ligaments. After treatment, the ligaments will need to get use to the new placement of your teeth, and it's possible for your teeth to move back or shift into their previous positions. Wearing a retainer at night will keep your teeth in their new position as the ligaments adjust.

Commitment

Brushing and flossing daily, cleaning your aligners, and wearing them conscientiously, are the tools every patient needs to achieve success in their treatment. And commitment to wearing and maintaining your aligners is key to a successful treatment outcome.

With that, an effective cleaning method, a retainer, and a good attitude, can ensure that your treatment with Invisalign will be a success. If you're looking for an Invisalign provider near Clark County, WA, your search ends here at Pritchard Orthodontics; contact us today!
