If you are looking forward to teeth straightening but are hesitant to wear traditional wire-and-bracket orthodontic braces, clear aligners by Invisalign are the ideal solution for you. Invisalign offers transparent plastic corrective braces that use aligners made from clear dental-grade plastic.
These clear aligners are made of Invisalign's blend of plastic, which is strong enough to put pressure on specific parts of your teeth. The aligners are fabricated in their facilities as per the molds of each patient's mouth. Invisalign is the removable alternative to traditional metal braces, making it more comfortable and convenient to use.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign provides you complete freedom from the appearance of metal in your mouth. They are more attractive, and anyone who sees you won't even figure out that you are wearing them.
- Orthodontic Treatment for All Ages
There is no age restriction to get Invisalign, and it has been the most preferred orthodontic treatment option by adults in recent years. Teens benefit from it significantly as they can wear it to school confidently without feeling embarrassed.
Invisalign is a removable aligner that allows the individual to practice good oral hygiene, eat any food they wish, and feel absolutely comfortable while using them.
Invisalign is more comfortable to use, and the discomfort during the treatment is negligible, making them the preferred choice over conventional braces. These aligners are incredibly smooth and don't irritate your mouth.
- Fewer Orthodontic Visits
Invisalign offers freedom from regular orthodontic visits. If you have traditional braces, you must visit the dentist to tighten your wires once every six weeks. This is not necessary with Invisalign.
- Easier Teeth Cleaning
Invisalign aligners are easily removable and hence helps to maintain good oral hygiene. You can easily take them off, brush and floss your teeth, rinse the aligners, and put them back on with ease.
Invisalign Treatment Procedure
When you visit our dental practice for the initial diagnosis, our dentist will examine your teeth and take digital impressions of them. We will send them to the Invisalign dental laboratory, where the aligners will be fabricated in a few weeks' time. Once they are ready for use, we will schedule a follow-up consultation and hand them to you.
Invisalign makes use of a series of aligner trays. These aligners are replaced every 10 to 14 days. Each replacement aligner may feel slightly different once you start using it since it suits the shifting and moving of your teeth. For better results, we advise wearing Invisalign for at least 22 hours every day. However, these aligners can be removed while eating, brushing, and flossing.
