Invisalign is a system of custom-molded clear aligners that straighten teeth and correct bite problems. The aligners are removable, so patients can eat whatever they want during treatment. In addition, the aligners are easy to clean and comfortable to wear.
Invisalign Treatment Benefits
Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic, which makes them virtually invisible when worn. Here are the major advantages of Invisalign aligners:
- Invisalign’s Clear Advantages
Unlike metal braces, Invisalign is removable. This means that you can eat and drink whatever you want during your treatment process. Brushing and flossing are also easy with Invisalign, and you don’t have to worry about the hygiene of your teeth during treatment. Invisalign’s removable aligners are easy to clean and maintain, and you don’t have to worry about bacteria, food particles, and other debris building up on your teeth during treatment.
- Invisalign’s Minimal Impact On Your Daily Routine
Traditional braces can be uncomfortable and inconvenient, often causing patients to feel self-conscious when talking, eating, or drinking. Invisalign aligners, on the other hand, are smooth, comfortable, and convenient, allowing patients to continue with their normal day-to-day activities without worry or discomfort.
Invisalign aligners are smooth, clear, and fit snugly against your teeth. This helps keep you comfortable throughout the day. You won’t have to deal with the irritation and discomfort that can sometimes come from traditional metal braces.
- Invisalign’s Easy Maintenance And Care
Invisalign aligners are removable, which means that you can easily take them out to clean your teeth. Brushing and flossing your teeth is easy with Invisalign, too, because there are no wires or brackets to get in the way. Simply remove your aligners, place them in the included carrying case, and brush and floss your teeth like you normally would. When you’re done, place them back in your smile, and go about your day.
Invisalign Treatment Process
Your Invisalign treatment process will begin with an initial appointment. At this appointment, your doctor will perform a thorough examination, discuss your dental and medical history, assess your oral health, and take digital dental x-rays. Your doctor will discuss your treatment process with you and answer any additional questions you may have. Once you and your doctor have decided on the best treatment plan for you, your doctor will order your aligners.
Invisalign Treatment Duration
Invisalign treatment usually takes between 12 and 18 months, depending on several factors. Some of our patients complete their treatment in as little as six months, while others may require up to 20 months. Most patients complete their treatment in about one year.
Invisalign For Teens
When it comes to orthodontics, Invisalign is a great option for teens because it’s completely invisible, so it doesn’t interfere with their day-to-day lifestyle. Invisalign aligners are also removable, meaning your teen can still enjoy their favorite foods and beverages. They can also take the aligners off when they play sports, go to prom, or during pictures. And since Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible, your teen won’t feel self-conscious while wearing them.
Invisalign is also preferred among teens because it’s comfortable. Teens won’t experience any pain or discomfort during the straightening process. The aligners are made of smooth plastic that is gentle on sensitive gums. Plus, there are no metal wires or brackets to poke or irritate the inside of the mouth.
