Braces have come a long way since they were invented in the early 1900s. Modern orthodontic techniques work with the physiology of the human body to move teeth in a faster and more gentle way. The health benefits and social benefits of having an attractive smile and a comfortable bite are well documented. Now more than ever before it is both important and possible to correct smile problems and bite problems with orthodontic treatment.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign straightens your teeth with a series of clear, virtually invisible custom-molded aligners.
A Clear Alternative to Metal Braces
By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth with results you’ll notice sooner than you think. The course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into a straighter position step by step until you have a more beautiful smile. And unlike braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth as usual.
An average Invisalign course of treatment takes about a year. You’ll see your dentist every 6 to 8 weeks for adjustments and to check progress. At regular intervals, you’ll receive a new set of custom-moulded clear aligners to continue the straightening process. The total number of clear aligners is specific to you, determined by your doctor for your course of treatment. Invisalign is best suited to corrections of minor crowding or spacing of teeth, so it is important to carefully discuss your treatment goals with your dentist before starting treatment.
Clear and Comfortable
Since Invisalign is practically invisible, there’s no unwarranted attention to your mouth. In fact, very few people will notice at all – unless you tell them. They’re comfortable to wear and remove easily when you eat, brush, and floss.
