Millions of people around the world choose Invisalign over other braces. No wonder as it is an excellent teeth straightening option. In this article, we will explore what makes Invisalign such a great choice and how to look after these invisible braces.
Invisalign is the leading brand in ‘invisible’ braces. It’s a perfect way to align your front teeth aesthetically.
Invisalign consists of a series of removable clear (nearly invisible) aligners that are custom-made through 3D computer technology, which allows them to straighten and align our teeth to give you the perfect smile.
You should make an appointment with your dentist to discuss Invisalign and for
them to assess your teeth. Your dentist will decide whether Invisalign is suitable for you. If it is, they will take a high-tech, digital 3D image of your mouth and teeth. From this, you will see a simulated evolution and timeline of the straightening plan with a projected result.
Every two weeks, you will receive new Invisalign aligners to wear over your teeth all day except for eating and cleaning. The aligners gradually and progressively move your teeth to the desired position.
We will schedule appointments at the practice every 4 – 6 weeks to review progress. Depending on your individual requirements, Invisalign treatments typically last from 2 to 18 months.
Invisalign is not painful. It can be slightly unpleasant due to gentle pressure inside your mouth as your teeth are moving to the correct position.
If there is any risk that teeth can move to the original position, your dentist will prescribe a retention appliance you can use. However, this is not common.
There are a few instructions you should follow to ensure your invisible braces are clean and safe.
