Are you a victim of crooked teeth and awkward smile? Maybe as a child it didn’t matter but for an adult, it can cause low self-confidence and even an inferiority complex. But are you considering an orthodontic treatment but worried about looking like metal mouth?
Maybe you can work on your smile without having the weight of metal and their annoying permanent presence! With the evolution of medical technology, many new and improved methods have come up which help you in having the perfectly aligned set of pearly whites that shine with health!
With a new and novel approach of Invisalign, one can have their teeth straightened without having to worry about brackets. These aligners are clear and easily removable and work with complete ease and comfort. When you decide to get your treatment done with the help of Invisalign, your orthodontist will help you in getting a digital scan of your teeth after which you will see a map of your teeth that will enable the treatment to proceed.
With Invisalign you get the comfort of removable brackets while you eat and clean your teeth. Invisalign is a short-term orthodontic treatment that contains crystal clear invisible aligners that won’t irritate the tissues in your mouth as metal braces and won’t impact your appearance either.
How does Invisalign Work
While you are allowed to take out your aligners for brushing your teeth and eating your meals, but you must keep them on for the rest of the time. While different dentists would give you different timelines to wear your aligners, but for the most part, you would be asked to keep them on for at least two weeks during which your teeth adjust bit by bit.
During consultation, if you are found to be a good candidate for Invisalign with your teeth X-rays and digital imagery, the details will be used to plan out the movement of your teeth during treatment and sent to a lab where Invisalign aligners are fabricated.
As mentioned earlier, you will be required to wear your aligners for the most part of the day except during meals and brushing, and the end of the first 2 weeks, the next set in the series will be given to you. Periodic visits will keep track of the progress here.
Usually the Invisalign treatment takes 12-15 months to work but you must wear your Invisaligners exactly as directed by your dentist to get the best results within the stipulated length of time.
