Guess what? Halloween is definitely fun. You know this. It can even be a day that you thoroughly enjoy without completely destroying your smile or the Invisalign treatment you’ve been so dedicatedly working your way through on a daily basis. This, you might not have known. So, you’re in luck! If you had any fears, worries, misconceptions, (or even the urge to simply skip your treatment for the day because you weren’t sure what else to do), our Rancho Cucamonga, CA team is here to help you keep straightening that smile, without a single hiccup!
#1: Don’t Take Trays Out While Out-And-About
It’s tempting to pop your trays out, so you can quickly enjoy a bite of brownie, a yummy drink from a cauldron, a piece of candy, etc. We know. However, this makes for a very easy way to lose your Invisalign treatment (and to end up putting trays back in without rinsing). Skip it.
#2: Absolutely, Do Not Eat Candy With Trays
Of course, if you eat candy with your trays in place, one of the major problems you will face with this Halloween slip-up is that you’ll promote the development of tooth decay (as sugars will become trapped within trays, pressed against teeth and gums). With that said, don’t forget that eating anything, candy included, can lead to damage to those trays of yours, which will slow down your Invisalign treatment! Unfortunately, you may overlook the damage, which can really slow down progress. Eating something? Always take them out first.
#3: Stick To The Same Rules As Always!
When you receive any type of treatment from us, whether it’s Invisalign treatment or something else, we provide you with a list of guidelines to ensure you remain on track, protect your smile, etc. So, we remind you: Stick to the usual guidelines if you want to keep your trays and your treatment nice and safe! This means removing them, as mentioned, to eat and drink. It means rinsing (or brushing and flossing) your smile before putting them back in place after you indulge in candy, drinks, and more. It also means that this isn’t a day to suddenly decide you’re just not going to wear your trays. Plan things out, so you’re still wearing them for the suggested 20 to 22 hours! It’s that simple.
