5 Things You Need to Know About Invisalign
Crooked or overcrowded teeth can lead to you feeling self-conscious whenever you smile. The size of your jaw, genetics, injury, and poor dental health are all factors that could bring about malocclusions such as gaps, overcrowding, or issues with your bite.
While braces are commonplace in teens, orthodontic issues also affect adults too. However, as an adult, you may be reluctant to get braces because of their appearance or concerns around their comfort. But there is another option, Invisalign.
Invisalign is one of the most effective ways to straighten your teeth, and best of all, there’s no need to wear any bulky, uncomfortable metal braces. But what do you need to know about this fantastic treatment?
Here are five things you need to know about Invisalign.
1. You’ll Achieve Results Quicker Than With Braces
The length of time that you’ll need to wear your Invisalign aligners will vary depending on the type and severity of the malocclusion we’re dealing with. You may only need to wear Invisalign for as little as six months, however, a year to 18 months is usual.
This makes Invisalign a faster solution in comparison to conventional braces.
2. Invisalign Gently Moves Your Teeth Into Position
When you choose Invisalign, your dentist will take impressions and images of your teeth in their current position. From this information, they will then map out how your teeth will move to get to their perfect position.
Once your treatment has been planned, you’ll be given specially made aligners that are designed for your teeth. Your aligner will gently apply force to your teeth which will help to gradually move them to where they need to be.
3. You’ll Use a Series of Aligners
Unlike getting braces, your Invisalign aligner won’t need to be adjusted by an orthodontist. Instead, you’ll be given a new set of aligners every few weeks. Each new set that you’re given will gently move your teeth closer to their final position.
4. You Can Take Your Aligners Out to Eat
One of the best things about Invisalign is that you can take your aligners out to eat. This means no food will get stuck to your teeth as you may find with braces. Removing your aligners makes cleaning them and your teeth so much easier.
While Invisalign aligners are removable, it is still important to wear them as much as possible to achieve the best results.
5. Nobody Will Even Know You’re Wearing Invisalign
Just like the name suggests, Invisalign is invisible. The aligners are made out of clear medical grade plastic that is barely noticeable when worn.
In addition to being transparent, Invisalign is also comfortable to wear, meaning you’ll hardly notice you have them in.
