Are you dreaming of a smile that you can be proud of? Invisalign braces are the best option for adults who want to enhance their first impression of the world. The severity of the necessary correction needed does not matter. Invisalign will help correct any and all alignment issues. Adults will love this method as the Invisalign braces are practically invisible so you don’t have to let anyone know that you even have braces!
Uses: Invisalign braces are popular with adults who want to create a better first impression with a beautiful new smile. From slightly misaligned teeth to crowded, crooked teeth, Invisalign can correct the condition while remaining unnoticed by others.
Who: Adults who want to straighten their teeth or realign their bite should ask their dentist about Invisalign. It is not indicated for kids because of the dedication that it takes to make the correction successful. Directions must be followed to the letter and worn all day, every day. Kids are not known to have the discipline to adhere to such a strict schedule.
The Procedure: After you and the dentist discuss this option and decide that it is the right way for you to go, an appointment will be made to have x-rays taken and impressions made. A dental lab takes the information and creates a series of molds. They progress with the pattern that your teeth will take during the straightening. There will be a total of ten to fifteen trays made showing how the teeth will reposition themselves. Every patient is different and depending on how much correction is needed, the braces will need to be worn from six to twenty-four months total.
After: Upon completion of the Invisalign process, you will have a beautiful new smile to show to the world. A retainer is worn while sleeping so that the teeth can be kept in place. Permanent retainers might be suggested in some cases. This will ensure that the results will last forever.
What to Expect: During treatment, the trays should be removed while eating; otherwise they are worn continuously. This means that twenty-two out of the twenty-four hours of every day, the trays will be working to straighten and realign your teeth. After meals, brush with a soft-bristle toothbrush, then immediately insert the trays back into the mouth. Discomfort is normal due to the fact that you are moving the teeth into a better position. One thing is for sure, Invisalign is a better option than normal braces. Since you are able to remove the trays to eat and clean them, it is a lot easier to manage.
