Everything you need to know about Invisalign
It’s never too late to start giving your teeth the care they deserve. If you’re feeling insecure about your smile, consider having it corrected with Invisalign braces. This customized and virtually invisible brace does wonders in remedying many problems, including overbites, underbites, crooked teeth and gapped teeth. If you’re interested in Invisalign, don’t hesitate to contact a dentist from Grover Dental Centre in Medicine Hat to find out if it’s right for you!
What is Invisalign?
Using 3D computer imaging technology, clear aligners can be custom-made to comfortably fit in your mouth and shift your teeth back into proper alignment. Unlike traditional braces, these aligners are removable and made of plastic, which makes them almost entirely unnoticeable.
The Invisalign process
Once your dentist has established that you’re well suited for Invisalign, a 3D image of your mouth will be constructed using a series of X-rays, pictures and scans. This will allow your dentist to craft a personalized treatment plan for you and have a series of custom aligners made, each for a different stage of your Invisalign journey. When your treatment begins, you’ll be expected to wear your aligner for at least twenty-three hours a day. Additionally, you’ll receive an updated set every two weeks, to accommodate your teeth as they gradually shift into their correct positions. Regular visits to your dentist during the treatment period will help to ensure that everything goes smoothly and ensure you achieve the radiant smile you’ve always dreamed of.
Benefits of Invisalign
In addition to being an effective way to straighten your teeth, Invisalign comes with a multitude of advantages that make it superior to traditional braces. The fact that it’s removable means that you won’t need to restrict what you eat, and daily brushing and flossing will be a much simpler task to perform. On top of this, since they’re made of BPA-free plastic, they’re much gentler on your mouth than the metal of traditional braces. They’re also clear, making them a subtler and more esthetically appealing choice.
