If your teeth are not straight, then you will not want to show your smile. This affects much of their everyday life. With children and teenagers, it is common to wear braces but adults don’t feel comfortable wearing these metal things in their teeth, especially if they are constantly interacting with colleagues and clients. When one wears traditional metal braces, there is a feeling of soreness in our mouth and you cannot eat or brush your teeth without experiencing difficulty.
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. Since no metal stuff will be shown on your teeth, you can give your best smile even while you are still undergoing treatment. 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.
During the treatment, a series of invisible aligners will be given that are custom-made especially for your teeth. You replace your current aligners every two weeks for the next set in the series. If you do this, your teeth will shift slowly towards their final position. You will notice the changes slowly and gradually. Invisalign is not like metal braces which are painful and uncomfortable; the contrary is true for Invisalign. You don’t feel what you do with 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. You might also want to discuss with your dentist all the possible Invisalign treatment strategies that you can avail of. The dentist will then make impressions of your teeth and images of your smile are taken.
In order to see what you smile will look like after the treatment you will be shown 3D computerized images of your teeth. Then your Invisalign braces will be prepared by your dentist.
You will wear you first set of Invisalign braces for about 2 weeks. Then this will be replaced with the nest set of braces in the sequence. Your dentist would want to check on how your teeth is slowly getting in its proper position so it is important that you visit your dentist every 4 to 6 weeks. After the treatment, your teeth will be straightened and you can smile confidently.
There are many issues that Invisalign braces can correct. Some of these issues are crossbites, underbites, overbites, overcrowding, and teeth that are widely spaced. While straightening your teeth, Invisalign treatment helps solve gum disease and tooth erosion. The procedure can also address discoloration if you combine Invisalign treatment with tooth whitening.
