Straightening one’s teeth is a great way to enjoy a better smile and improve one’s self confidence too. In most cases, people and dentists had to rely on braces of different kinds to achieve straighter teeth. But with the advent of Invisalign, you can get multiple benefits such as:
So how does this cutting edge dental solution work? Here is information that will help you get a better insight of the product.
Invisalign is a system that is best described as teeth or tooth aligner. It is a long-term treatment plan and has to be designed by a professional who will take an impression of your teeth and then chalk out a treatment plan.
The customized aligners should be worn for six weeks and then the Invisalign professional will monitor the progress before putting in a new set. The initial set of aligners will have three sets and you should wear a new aligner every two weeks.
How does it work?
The solution is a patented thermoplastic design. After the initial assessment and impression of your teeth has been done, the first set of aligners will be placed on your teeth. Over a course of around two weeks, the aligners work to move your teeth in the necessary directions in order to align them perfectly. Depending on your teeth and the degree of correction they need, the aligners will get changed every two weeks or so for a specific duration.
The duration of treatment can run up to 12 months. In fact, experts say that this is the average time. If that seems like a very long time then keep in mind that the conventional, painful metal braces can take up to double this time.
Wearing the aligners
Invisalign is removable but the dentist will recommend that you wear it for 20 to 22 hours every day since this is when the product is most effective. The aligners move your teeth in the necessary direction with the application of controlled force.
The benefit of this kind of treatment is the fact that only a few teeth are allowed to move at one time. The treatment plan will show you exactly how your teeth will move over the course of treatment with Invisalign.
Invisalign is popular because it is a very unique plan of treatment created by a trained dentist. You have to visit your dentist every 4 to 6 weeks to monitor the progress of the aligners. In fact, you will undergo:
All this results in a digital 3-D image of your teeth which helps the doctor determine a precise treatment plan.
Undoubtedly by combing customization, cutting edge technology and ease of use, Invisalign is radically changing the way people can get their teeth straightened.
