Invisalign is an effective orthodontic solution that helps correct a number of different orthodontic issues and leaves you with a wonderful, bright and beautiful smile! This type of orthodontic solution may be seen as a more comfortable and less painful method to straighten teeth.
The treatment consists of a series of clear aligners individually designed to your teeth and bite. Each aligner applies a force to the teeth throughout the treatment, gradually moving the teeth into the correct desired position. The aligners are made from a clear, thin plastic and are to be worn day and night (apart from when eating and brushing your teeth). Invisalign is an elegant solution to straighten teeth instead of the traditional metal brackets which can be known as uncomfortable and a little painful.
If you are considering getting an orthodontic treatment with Invisalign, the first step is to organise an initial consultation. A 3D scan is then taken of your mouth in order to prepare and design the sets of aligners specifically made for your case. Once aligners have been prepared, they are to be worn everyday for two weeks before moving onto the next one. The number of aligners needed to complete the course varies from person to person and depends on the severity of each case.
WHO CAN GET INVISALIGN?
Invisalign is suitable for most people, however not ALL orthodontic issues can be fixed with Invisalign. This is why it is important to have a consultation and assessment in order to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the treatment.
There are many reasons as to why Invisaligns popularity and demand has increased! Many include:
- they are practically invisible! Clear and comfortable!
- they may be removed for up to two hours.
- teeth can still be brushed thoroughly allowing you to maintain your optimum oral hygiene.
