Welcome to the aligner club. Wearing clear aligners can require you to make changes in your lifestyle to adapt to your new BFFs that you can’t live without.
Here are some changes you can expect when you embark on your Zenyum journey
1. Uploading photos every 10 days
If you love taking selfies and sending them to all of your friends, this might come naturally to you. You’ll have to take a photo of your teeth and upload them to the Zenyum app every ten days so that your progress can be monitored.
2. Removing your clear aligners before every meal
You have to remember to take off your clear aligners before every meal and fortunately it’s easy to remove your clear aligners and put them back on. Some people even forget to take them off because they can’t feel their clear aligners when they’re wearing them. Take them off if you are drinking anything other than plain water.
Unlike metal braces, you also don’t have to avoid sticky foods and you just have to floss afterwards before putting your clear aligners back on.
3. Temporary discomfort with new sets of aligners
It’s normal to experience some pain and discomfort during the first few days of wearing a new set of aligners. Your teeth and mouth need time to get used to the new pressure applied by the aligners to shift them into straighter positions.
4. Changing trays every one or two weeks
Depending on your treatment plan, you’ll change to a new set of clear aligners every one or two weeks. You’ll receive all the aligners you need in the beginning so that you don’t have to visit the dentist each time you change your aligners. You simply have to upload a photo of your teeth via the Zenyum app and let your dentist know if you’re experiencing any issues.
You’ll also receive reminders via the app when it’s time to change your aligners so that you stay on track.
