Advice for InvisalignⓇ Users

For individuals that don’t want to wear uncomfortable conventional braces, InvisalignⓇ braces are a fantastic orthodontic choice. This type of teeth straightening method would be less painful and much more convenient. Invisalign, however, remains an orthodontic procedure. To get the most out of these clear braces, we’ve presented a few tips and advice to ensure that your Invisalign device does its job properly and as efficiently as possible. 

  1. Floss every day

You could be brushing your teeth every day, but when was the last time you’ve flossed? Flossing should be more essential than ever when undertaking an Invisalign procedure. It’s been documented that aligners hold residue that lingers from meals and even brushing. Always clean your teeth carefully every day with floss, even weekends.

2. Stick to the 48-hour instruction

During your first forty-eight hours, your trays should be worn as much as possible. Several dentists recommend that you only remove them to brush your teeth, but making sure they are back in, directly after that. In addition, to get a better result, you must wear your aligners as much as possible, however during your first two days, this should be doubled.

3. Commit to wearing them at least 22 hours every day

Only if you wear them for most of the day, your aligner trays will work properly. If you don’t wear them every day for at least twenty-two hours, then in a shorter amount of time you’re less likely to get positive results. 

4. Change your aligners on time and in the right order

If the dentist advises you it’s time to upgrade your aligners or change them, you should adjust them. If your dentist tells you to wait a little longer to change them, it’s highly recommended that you listen to them. If you don’t follow the correct directions provided by your dentist, you can risk throwing off your treatment estimated timetable.

These were just a few things that can help you get through your Invisalign treatment as seamlessly as possible. If you have any questions or would like to know more suggestions, please contact Dr. Roshanzamir offices in Vancouver British Columbia, Canada


Candy Vs. Your Child’s Teeth

If you ask a bunch of kids what their favorite foods are, you’ll probably get few answers like pizza, ice cream, and cookies but one of the most popular answers you’ll hear is candy. That being said, as a parent you should be aware of the threat that candy poses to your child’s oral wellbeing and how to help them avoid major dental issues later on in their lives. Dr. Parviz Roshanzamir and the extortionary dental team of Wall Centre Dental located in Vancouver, British Columbia have compiled a list of dental tips you can follow so you never have to worry about your child’s teeth falling out (unnaturally).

Here are some of the suggestions that we’ve gathered: 

Drink lots of water:

This should be a staple for everyone at any age since water plays such a huge role in our bodies. Ultimately, water is a deterrent for tooth decay, it helps with eliminating some of the sugar that is left in your mouth minimizing its harmful effects. If you find yourself in a situation where your child can’t properly brush their teeth after enjoying some candy, have them take a swig of water and swish it around to rinse out any excessive and leftover sugars.  

Eat your candy with meals:   

Having your child satisfy their sweet tooth during or shortly after larger meals such as lunch and dinner will help stimulate and increase saliva production. Saliva not only assists in washing away food particles and debris it also aids in eliminating the harmful acids created in your mouth that erode your teeth.   

Brush, Brush, Brush your teeth:

Having your child brush their teeth immediately following a meal or just partaking in an all-night sugar-fueled bender (aka Halloween) is a great way to hinder the development of cavities and tooth decay. Brushing helps remove the enamel-eating bacteria that is caused by the sugar left from sugary treats.
