Invisalign (Teeth Straightening)
Crooked teeth, spaces in between the teeth and teeth that are out of alignment with each other impair the beauty of the entire smile. They can also be detrimental to overall oral health. Luckily, there is an easy way to straighten and align teeth and close spaces in between them. With the Invisalign clear aligner system, you can transform your smile comfortably and conveniently—and nobody has to know! Invisalign aligners are powerful yet discreet.
Why Straightening Teeth Is Important
Straight, even teeth are very important in a cosmetic sense. Your teeth will look healthier when they are straight, properly aligned and evenly spaced. Your smile will look more appealing on the whole.
Straightening crooked teeth also has health benefits. It is easier to clean straight and properly aligned teeth. The gums can fit more securely around them, cutting down on the risk of periodontal disease. Also, straight teeth are better for your overall chewing function and bite.
The Advantages of Invisalign
Invisalign is highly preferred to conventional braces. Since the aligners are clear and made from a thin plastic material, they are not noticeable, and they fit comfortably. Your aligners will be custom-made to your specifications for the quickest and most effective results. The aligners can be worn at all times and easily removed. There are no uncomfortable metal pieces to poke at your gums, nor dental appointments to tighten the wires. All of these factors make this popular orthodontic treatment perfect for both teens and adults.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign treatment involves wearing a series of clear, plastic aligners which gradually shift your teeth into the proper position. Total treatment time can range from six months to a year, depending on the amount of correction needed. Before beginning treatment, impressions will be taken of your teeth and mouth. Advanced computer software will be used to plan the sequence of your aligners to achieve the desired results. At the final consultation appointment, you will watch an animation of how the teeth will move to their straightened positions, and with your approval, the aligners will be ordered.
You will receive your first pair of clear aligners, consisting of an upper and lower aligner. They should fit comfortably in the mouth and look very inconspicuous. There might be a slight adjustment period as you get used to wearing them. You should wear your aligners as much as possible, removing them only for eating, drinking and cleaning. You will wear the set for two to five weeks, and then swap them out for the next set of aligners in the series.
