Instructions and side effects

Instructions for invisalign

  • You can book a consultation online at https://www.oral.fi/en/specialists/roy-nykanen/
  • First 2 aligners you keep for 2 weeks and then change individually. When the aligner is loose and you can fit the next one well- ok to change within a range of 7-12 days. The upper and lower can be changed on a different sequence and the lower might be slightly slower then upper
  • With Acceledent or Orthopulse you should be able to change 20-30% faster
  • You take the aligners off when you eat and clean your teeth. Ok also to eat with them in and rinse later
  • Ok to drink non-sugar drinks (avoid very hot drinks)
  • The more you wear the faster the treatment proceeds
  • Save the previous 5-8 aligners (sometimes you might need them)
  • If you have an important occasion- ok to leave them away for a few hours maybe 1 time per week- if more frequently- you keep the aligner for a longer time.
  • Control visits to Roy is every 7-8 weeks 15 min. If you cannot get a convenient appointment – ok to have 1 control to Jenna or Enni (they charge 45€ but this fee will be reduced on your next payment)
  • During your orthodontics, you visit as usual your dentist/hygienist.
  • 3×10 min. daily Chewie helps with tooth sensitivity and the aligners fit better, helping the treatment going faster.
  • In most aligning you adjust the bite and levelling with a new set of aligners (this is included in the fee and treatment time estimate). Good bite is important for stability and the good function of the joint.
  • If a tooth does not fit the aligner- go back 1-3 aligner for better fitting – more chewie and change these older aligners every 24 h. until you get to the new aligner- give the new one 1-2 more days before you change to the next one
  • Cats and dog like to eat used aligner- don’t leave them on the table.
  • The aligner has a number if you are not sure which aligner you have
  • If you run out of aligners – send an email and we can send a few via mail or you can get them from the reception.
  • If some attachments come off– we can reinstall them on your next regular visit- if you seem to need new ones.
