Invisalign are invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that give you the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted. And best of all, no one can tell you’re wearing them. This makes these a great option for teenagers as well as adults. Truth General Dentistry will help you explore how this option can work for you.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is the invisible plastic aligner dentists adjust to your teeth. It uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. Clinical research and orthodontic practices nationwide find invisalign an effective option.
The ugly braces and metal brackets shift teeth in the right position. However, wearing them constantly make people conscious of their look and smile. But with invisible braces, you will be amazed to see your teeth gradually becoming straight without others knowing it. People who quit the thought of straightening their teeth just because of the fear of braces can now confidently try Invisalign at Truth General Dentistry.
How does it Work?
Only a trained orthodontic is good with Invisalign, as proper training is needed to work with it. At Truth General Dentistry, the dentists are professionally trained at giving you a straight smile. The dentist will first of all, check if it is the right choice for you. Subsequently, the dentist will take a digital scan of your teeth and will also map the entire movement of your teeth that will happen throughout the treatment. These scans will help the dentists prepare customized invisible aligners that will fit well on your teeth.
You will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks. As you will replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to their final position.
While the aligners are working, you will visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9 – 15 months, and the average number of aligners during treatment is between 18 – 30, but both will vary from case to case.
What dental problems can aligners fix?
Whether you have gaps in your teeth, underbites, teeth have grown over each other or crowded teeth, all can be fixed with Invisalign. Many people prefer using Invisalign for overbite and see a drastic change in their teeth alignment.
These problems, if not treated, can affect the dental health of a person. Having gaps in teeth can leave gums unguarded, which can cause infections in gums. When you bite, it causes pressure on your gums. If the bite is not proper, it may eventually affect the gum.
Furthermore, when teeth are overgrown, it would become difficult to brush or clean your teeth properly. This would accumulate plaque and cause tooth decay. Therefore, when teeth are straight, your dental health will improve, and eventually, your overall health will also improve.
Benefits of invisible aligners
Cleaning Invisalign is exceptionally easy. The way you brush your natural teeth, the similar way you will brush the aligners but after removing them. The best way to clean Invisalign is to soak them in water, so remains can also come out.
You can use Invisalign regularly; however, eating with Invisalign is not preferred. You can enjoy your favorite food but after removing your aligners. Invisalign are also a good option for those who play sports. Simply they can remove the aligners and then reapply once the game is over. The dentists at Truth General Dentistry will help you take proper care of your invisible aligners and will guide you at keeping them safe and clean.
