There are countless benefits to Invisalign. This popular orthodontic treatment is a great alternative to traditional metal braces and can allow you to straighten your teeth in the most discreet way possible. Invisalign involves wearing clear aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day and changing them every few weeks. Each set of aligners will gradually move your teeth into their proper position.
You’ll find that Invisalign does not get in the way of your everyday life. You’ll be able to remove your aligners every time you brush, floss, eat, or drink. If you play a musical instrument or sport, you’ll be able to remove them as well. As long as you wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, they will work their magic.
Some patients at Sims Orthodontics wonder whether Invisalign may lead to uncomfortable side effects such as headaches and fever. Fortunately, headaches and fevers rarely arise. However, if you notice a fever or headache that persists a few days after receiving Invisalign, you should visit your orthodontist right away.
They can examine your teeth and gums and ensure you do not have an allergic reaction, jaw condition, or another issue. If everything looks good, your orthodontist may recommend an over-the-counter pain reliever like Tylenol so that you can feel better. In the event an issue is detected, they may focus on treating it and stop treatment.
After going through Covid-19 many patients wonder if some of the symptoms they are having related to their teeth or orthodontic work may be lingering. It is safe to say that many people are looking at their health and life a little bit differently after living through a global pandemic. Before trying to sell assess and explain your migraines or headaches it is always advisable to seek the advice of a medical professional.
