If your teeth are not straight, then you will not want to show your smile. The life of a person with crooked teeth can be difficult. Metal braces can help solve this problem and with children and teenagers, it is common to see them wearing such, but as adults we don’t feel comfortable having metal braces especially if we have to deal with colleagues and clients daily. Traditional braces can make you mouth feel sore and the daily tasks using the mouth can seem exhausting.
Nowadays, people no longer wear metal braces but they prefer to use invisible braces instead; these invisible braces are called Invisalign. Being made from clear plastic, you can hardly see Invisalign. Because of its materials, Invisalign is barely visible to others and so you can smile confidently even if your treatment is not yet completed. Invisalign braces are removable which makes eating, drinking, and brushing your teeth fairly easy. It helps you maintain better oral health during your Invisalign treatment.
You will be wearing a series of invisible aligners during your treatment which are custom-made for you. A new set of invisible aligners will replace your current one and this will be done every two weeks. If you do this, your teeth will shift slowly towards their final position. This is a slow and gradual process. Discomfort and pain is very small during the Invisalign treatment. The feeling is not the same as wearing traditional braces.
Between 6 to 15 months, your teeth straightening will be completed, depending on how severe your problem is.
IF you want to have this Invisalign treatment, then visit your Invisalign dentist and inquire. Ask the dentist what Invisalign strategies are available to you. If you want to go ahead with the treatment, then the dentist will create impressions of your teeth and images of your smile.
In order to see what you smile will look like after the treatment you will be shown 3D computerized images of your teeth. The dentist will then proceed to fashion your Invisalign braces.
Your first set of Invisalign braces will be worn for about 2 weeks. Following the sequence, the current Invisalign braces will be replaced by the next one. Every 4 to 6 weeks, you should see your Invisalign dentist to make sure that your Invisalign treatment is going as expected. Soon, you will have your teeth straightened and your smile makeover is completed.
With Invisalign, many issues of your teeth will be dealt with. Some of these issues are crossbites, underbites, overbites, overcrowding, and teeth that are widely spaced. Invisalign treatment improves the position of your teeth and it also helps solve other dental issues like gum disease and tooth erosion. Combined with teeth whitening, discoloration can be addressed.
