AIM: to evaluate the habits of hygiene of the mouth and appliance, and the changes in the diet in patients treated with INVISALIGN System, to optimize and personalize the indications during treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: a 22 question informative questionnarie has been elaborated. 25 patients between 15 and 62 years of age anonymously completed the questionnaires. The data have been entered in an Excel database file and graphically showed through histograms and pies. RESULTS: all the patients who have answered the questions carry out the daily oral hygiene by toothbrushing (¾ manual, ¼ electric toothbrush) and they replace it, not with a regular timing, but when “it’s consumed”. More than a half of the patients are prompt to the dental hygienist visits.The appliance is generally cleaned 2 times a day. The diet changes are very intersting: a tendency to reduction of the potential coloring (tea, coffee, colored drinks) or decayed (sweet, candies, sugar drinks) food and the number of snacks has been observed.The patients concentrate the food assumption during the principal meals. CONCLUSIONS: the INVISALIGN patients pay more attention at the health of the mouth and the hygiene of the appliance, with a highrespect of the visits with the dental hygienist and in attempting to optimize the relations between oral hygiene and food assumption.

Abstract

AIM: to evaluate the habits of hygiene of the mouth and appliance, and the changes in the diet in patients treated with INVISALIGN System, to optimize and personalize the indications during treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: a 22 question informative questionnarie has been elaborated. 25 patients between 15 and 62 years of age anonymously completed the questionnaires. The data have been entered in an Excel database file and graphically showed through histograms and pies. RESULTS: all the patients who have answered the questions carry out the daily oral hygiene by toothbrushing (¾ manual, ¼ electric toothbrush) and they replace it, not with a regular timing, but when “it’s consumed”. More than a half of the patients are prompt to the dental hygienist visits.The appliance is generally cleaned 2 times a day. The diet changes are very intersting: a tendency to reduction of the potential coloring (tea, coffee, colored drinks) or decayed (sweet, candies, sugar drinks) food and the number of snacks has been observed.The patients concentrate the food assumption during the principal meals. CONCLUSIONS: the INVISALIGN patients pay more attention at the health of the mouth and the hygiene of the appliance, with a highrespect of the visits with the dental hygienist and in attempting to optimize the relations between oral hygiene and food assumption.
