Invisalign is the latest dental innovation that straightens teeth using aligners instead of the traditional braces. These aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can correct your teeth alignment without anyone noticing you’re wearing one. Moreso, it is very convenient when eating and drinking. When wearing Invisalign, you are able to brush and floss like normal to maintain healthy teeth and gums since there are no metal wires, rubbers or brackets.
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner consistently as recommended by your dentist, your teeth will move gradually, week by week, until they have set to their optimal positions. Total treatment time averages from nine to 15 months with an average of 18 to 30 aligners worn during the treatment period. Both figures still vary from case to case.
Aside from the convenience you get from wearing Invisalign as compared to traditional braces, it also means fewer trips to your dentist to get adjustments.
Before the actual treatment starts, you will be provided with a treatment plan so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete. Furthermore, Invisalign is proven to make your mouth healthier than before since it protects your teeth from harmful debris and decay. It also allows you to keep up with your normal oral hygiene habits.
