Braces may seem like the safe and effective option to go with, having been used by both orthodontists and dentists in straightening teeth, but there’s a new way to achieve the same results without having a speck of metal planted on your pearly whites.
Invisalign is a solution that works just as effectively as braces do in aligning your teeth. However, Invisalign uses a removable plastic aligner which takes away all the pains and irritation involving metal braces.
How Invisalign Works
After an evaluation by your dentist or orthodontist is made to see if Invisalign is the right option for you, impressions of your teeth are taken as well as x-rays and other necessary steps in figuring out how to mold your custom aligner. Then your doctor will determine your teeth’s movement in order to predict how future treatments will work.
Invisalign aligners can be removed whenever necessary, so when you’re cleaning your teeth or eating you can take them out easily. Otherwise, they can be expected to be worn all day just as braces would be. About every other week a new aligner is worn which keeps up with the alignment process and an appointment with your doctor is made around every six weeks to see where you’re at in your treatment process.
Why Choose Invisalign?
Unlike the annoyance and insecurities braces can cause, Invisalign allows you many freedoms and confidences that braces can’t provide:
- Invisalign aligners can be removed anytime for eating, meaning the dietary restrictions you’d get with normal braces are no longer there. You can also more effectively clean your teeth without the hassle of having to move around your braces or worry about potentially breaking them off. Simply place the aligner in it’s case whenever not on your teeth and enjoy any meal you desire
- The confidence aligners can give you only gets better as your treatments progress, as your smile will improve with time and you’ll never feel embarrassed enough to hide it along the way Furthermore, nobody ever even has to know you’re on the treatment as your transparent aligner won’t even appear on your teeth. Now that’s reason enough to choose Invisalign over standard braces
- Every aligner is comfortably fit for your mouth and won’t rub against or poke your cheek like standard braces would. You never have to worry about your aligner painfully letting you know that it’s there every day. The poking caused by a snapped wire will never occur and you’ll never to have to see your dentist or orthodontist in an inconvenient appointment due to a loose bracket
With Invisalign you don’t see half of the struggles that you would get with braces, and yet you can still see the best results. There is no reason you should have to endure the sensation of uncomfortable and sometimes aggravating metal rubbing in your mouth or a shy, concealed smile with Invisalign. You’ll also never have to deal with rubber bands like many of those who wear braces do, making these plastic mouth pieces the only material you will ever see in the entire treatment process!
As long as aligners are worn for twenty to twenty-two hours each day, you will see the strait teeth you’ve always wanted by the end of your treatment.
