Are Invisalign Results Permanent?
Results from Invisalign last just as long as the results from traditional braces. However, teeth tend to relapse, no matter which orthodontic treatment is used. It’s sometimes advisable to have a fixed retainer applied to your teeth. Alternatively, you may need to wear a retainer at night to maintain your new smile.
Another factor is to undertake exercises (called Oral Myology/Myofunctional Therapy) to promote the correct balance in the tongue, lips, and cheek muscles. This is often overlooked in orthodontic procedures, but at SHDC, we have exercises and work with oral myology practitioners to address the issues which caused the crowding in the first place.
