Day in the life of an Impressions patient

What it is like to have Impressions at-home invisible aligners

It’s from Impressions

Now what?

Impressions is a local (to WNC) orthodontic treatment option. This at-home clear aligner process provides safe, professional and effective teeth-straightening for busy professionals or parents, without the hassle of regular in-office appointments. Impressions is supervised by board certified, nationally-recognized orthodontics, created by Invisalign and shipped right to your door! 

Once you’ve come for your initial, free consultation, your Impressions kit – with everything you need to straighten your smile – will be mailed right to your door. Then what’s next? 

A day in the life of an Impressions patient: 

During Impressions treatment, you’ll wear your aligners while you sleep. It’s recommended that you wear your aligners for 22 hours each day for the best and quickest results. Upon waking up, remove your aligners to brush and floss. This is also a good time to clean your aligners too. You can do this by brushing your aligners with your toothbrush and non-whitening toothpaste, by soaking them in cleaning solution (Invisalign cleaning crystals dissolved in water), or in a mixture of peroxide and water. 

While your aligners are out, this is a great time to have your morning coffee or breakfast. You’ll brush your teeth again afterwards – brushing your teeth after eating or drinking anything other than water is an important part of oral hygiene during treatment. 

Next, you’ll wear your aligners until lunch time. No one will know! When it’s time to eat again, remove your aligners and put them in their case. This protects your Impressions aligners and also prevents them from being thrown out with any food waste or trash. Before reinserting your aligners, you’ll need to brush and floss again. 

You’ll go about your business until dinner time, when you’ll repeat the tray removal, eating and brushing process before returning your aligners to their home in your mouth. 

Before bed, you’ll remove your aligners once more to brush and floss. Then you’ll sleep the night away while your smile is getting straightened! 

During your Impressions treatment, which lasts an average or six to eight months, you’ll trade out your aligners for a new set on a weekly basis. We recommend setting a reminder on your phone. Aside from the additional brushing and flossing, the tray changes on a weekly basis and your consultation at the start of treatment, life with Impressions is pretty normal. That seems like something to smile about!
