Considering the results of the measurements made, a patient-specific transparent plaque (Invisalign) is prepared.

Things to Consider After Treatment

The first week after brace placement can be tough for you. If you feel pain and wobble in your teeth, the reason is that the movement starts as a result of the pressure exerted by the braces on the teeth. This pain disappears after a maximum of 1 week. Be careful not to overfeed during this time. (broth, puree, vegetables, pilafs, acid-free fruit juices) You can use pain relievers such as Parol other than aspirin 1-2 times a day. Brush your teeth after every meal or even if you just have a snack. Then use an antibacterial mouthwash. You should always use the brush and paste recommended by your orthodontist. Even if you can't brush right away, at least rinse your mouth with water. While brushing your teeth, brush in a sweeping style from the gum to the tooth so that your brush massages your gums. Clean the edges of the brackets and under the wires with an interdental brush at least once a day.
