cute teen prepares to put in her Invisalign clear bracesIf you are considering straightening your teeth, orthodontics offers many great options. And at Rice Dentistry, we offer all the best options so that you can find the one that’s right for you. 

In considering your options, it’s important to consider not just the ultimate result, but the experience of orthodontics. This matters because even with AcceleDent and the newer, faster Invisalign approach, you will likely spend six months or more in orthodontic treatment. 

Fortunately, there are many ways to make the experience more enjoyable. Some of these are simple life hacks, but others are additions by the manufacturers themselves. 

The My Invisalign app is a new addition to the Invisalign experience that helps make it easier to enjoy and share your progress toward the straight, beautiful smile of your dreams.

Customized, Convenient Tools

My Invisalign is a mobile app designed to make it easier to get the best results from your Invisalign experience. It includes many tools that help you do the best at using your Invisalign. 

One of the best benefits of Invisalign is that it’s removable. This lets you eat all the foods you want and clean your teeth properly without having to work around metal brackets and wires. You can even remove them for any special occasion, from a first kiss to a major speech. But with this comes the problem that you might not wear your aligners long enough each day, which can slow down your treatment and interfere with your results. But the custom aligner tracker in My Invisalign gives you an easy way to track how long your aligner is out each day. That way you can take it out when you want without losing progress. 

You and your dentist can also set up custom notifications that help you wear your aligner for the right number of days before moving on to the next one. Reminders will help you move on when it’s time, too, so you can make rapid progress. 

Plus, an embedded questions and answers section helps you get answers to all your questions directly from Invisalign rather than relying on dubious Internet information. 

Straightening Socially

Invisalign is not a lonely process. It’s something you can do with your friends and family, and the My Invisalign app makes this easier than ever. My Invisalign makes it so you can easily save photos and comments to your personal Smile Gallery to visually track your progress. It can then assemble these photos into a progress video that you can watch at any time and share with friends and family. And when you finish, you can pick your favorites for a before and after comparison to show just how far you’ve come.
