You and your cosmetic dentist Drs. Michel and Brent Furumoto In Diamond Bar spent a lot of time, and effort into shaping your smile into the beautiful, straight and radiant entity that it is today. For this reason and many more, you need to take great care with your teeth in the months and years after your final treatment. Our family dentist can help you care for your teeth in the coming years, but there are a few things that you can do at home to help.

Practice Good Oral Hygiene

Though you should always be diligent about keeping your teeth clean and healthy, the time and expense that you put into crafting your smile should serve as extra motivation to develop a thorough oral healthcare regime. Here are a few steps that you can take to keep your smile healthy:

  • Brush twice a day.
  • Floss regularly.
  • Use mouthwash with fluoride.

Wear Your Retainers

You may no longer have to wear Invisalign trays, but that doesn't mean you should stop wearing your retainer. If you want to ensure that your teeth stay in place and that they don't adjust back to their original position, follow the detailed instructions that our cosmetic dentist gives you regarding wear of and care for your retainers.

Schedule Routine Checkups

It's always a good idea to visit the dentist once or twice a year, but now that your Invisalign treatment is complete, you should make it a point to visit our office at least biannually. After a few follow up appointments, our dentist will recommend a treatment schedule, which you should do your best to uphold. After all, doing so could mean the difference between a lifetime with a beautiful smile and a need for re-treatment in the future.
