No two denturists are the same. If you have been wearing dentures for a while, you know that no two sets of dentures are the same. Finding a quality, experienced denturist can seriously impact the comfort of your dentures. You do not have to deal with loose plates, gums that are rubbed raw, distorted speech, and the inability to eat your favorite foods. If you have any of these problems, there are a few things that you can try before replacing your dentures. Use what I have learned over my 15 years of wearing dentures to find a perfect fit and optimum comfort in your dentures.
Wearing invisible braces is an option you have when straightening your teeth. They don't stick out and are relatively easy to use. You just want to take these precautions to ensure these aligners give you the best results that are truly possible.
Clean Aligners Often
If your clear aligners ever get dirty throughout the day, then you'll want to clean them as this keeps them sterile and prevents them from staining. You don't need a lot of special products to clean these aligners either. You can just use a soft-bristled brush on your aligners and some warm soapy water.
The water should help get rid of any germs while the brush can ensure every surface is clean before you put these aligners back in your mouth. Do this consistently and you shouldn't have to worry about the aligners holding up for as long as they're needed.
Have an Orthodontist Look at Teeth Alignment
The purpose of wearing clearer aligners is to get your teeth to align straight. Then you may feel much better about your smile. You just want to make sure you have an orthodontist check on alignment pretty consistently so that you can make sure the aligners are working like they're intended to.
This professional will know exactly when to check your teeth and when more clear aligners are necessary to continue with the gradual adjustments. They can even make changes to how your aligners are made if they're warranted for straighter teeth at the end.
Keep Wearing Them
It sounds so simple to just keep clear aligners in your mouth throughout most of the day, but this is one of the most important things you can do. Then your teeth will experience gradual adjustments until they're in a perfect position according to what your orthodontist determines is best.
You may feel some discomfort early on because you may have never worn anything like this before, but these aligners will work if you just keep up with wearing them day in and day out. There will come a day when you will never have to wear them again, but until that point, do what your orthodontist recommends.
If you want to straighten your teeth in a convenient manner, then you might want to use clear aligners rather than metal braces. You can get so much out of them too if you follow the right protocols and continue to check up with your orthodontist.
