If you have just finished treatment with Invisalign in Prior Lake, MN, there is a chance that you are wondering if your teeth are going to move back after you stop wearing the last tray. You will find that your teeth will move around some, according to Dr. Chad Olson and Dr. Neda Falak with Olson Dental. But the good news is there are some reasons why this will happen, and if you are aware of them, you can help stop the movement before it begins.
Knowing What to Look for To Stop Tooth Movement After Invisalign
Invisalign in Prior Lake, MN, is a great way to straighten teeth. But in to keep your teeth from moving back, you will need to know the following:
- The roots of teeth are set in bone. This allows the dentist to help straighten your teeth without a lot of effort. The changes will take time, but they will move. The longer you wear the Invisalign, the better your teeth will look.
- Teeth have a way of moving back if you fail to wear your retainer the way you are instructed to wear it. A retainer will be provided to you once your Invisalign treatment is complete. The retainer will match the exact position your teeth come to once you finish the last tray.
- It is always a good idea to identify ways to make your teeth move around. People that grind their teeth or bite on hard things a lot have a way of moving their teeth around.
- When wearing your retainer, you will want to pay attention to how it fits. If it feels tighter than usual one morning, there is a good chance that your teeth have moved some. At this point, you will want to wear your retainer faithfully to keep your teeth in the correct position.
