During your first visit, Milestone Orthodontics will apply attachments to your teeth. Just like regular braces, Invisalign uses attachments under the clear aligners to help straighten your teeth. The process of applying these attachments takes only a few minutes at Milestone Orthodontics in Saddle Brook. You are now ready for your first set of aligners.
Fortunately, Milestone Orthodontics uses the iTero scanner which scans your mouth so you weren’t subjected to messy mouth molds. The scanner predicts were your teeth will be every two weeks if you wear your aligners for the recommended 22 hours per day.
Milestone Orthodontics will now show you how to put in and take out your Invisalign aligners. This can take some practice but don’t worry; you’ll eventually get the hang of it. While your aligners are in, you may experience some increased saliva as your mouth gets use to the aligners. Dr. Milestone has had patients say that the aligners do make them slur a little bit at first. This should pass as you get use to your Invisalign.
Don’t forget that Invisalign is an orthodontic straightening system as are metal braces. So as your teeth shift, your jaw may ache from time to time. This should not alarm you but if you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the office in Saddle Brook location. You’re now on your way to the beautiful smile you always wanted and Milestone Orthodontics is happy to be your orthodontist.
