What is invisalign?
Invisalign is the modern day treatment to straighten your teeth without the hassle of braces. You no longer have to worry about brackets falling out or annoying wires cutting your mouth while you talk. The treatment consists of a clear set of custom aligners that you shift into your teeth in order to give you the smile that you desire.
The process is simple. All you have to do is exchange your aligners every 2 weeks and watch your teeth slowly, but surely shift into their correct spot.
How Do I Use Them?
You should wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day, only taking them out to brush your teeth and eat. If you follow directions, you could complete treatment in as little as 20 weeks. You will exchange your aligners for new ones every 2 weeks that slowly pull your teeth together.
Just remember to keep up with bruising and flossing to keep your teeth white, and you will get the smile you want in no time.
There are so many reasons to get Invisalign over braces and you can learn some of them here.
The most obvious pro to Invisalign is that it is an invisible aligner. No one has to know that you are fixing your teeth if you don’t want them to. You don’t have to deal with food getting stuck in your brackets. Having an invisible aligner saves you the discomfort of everything that comes with braces.
It’s More Comfortable.
Getting braces comes with uncomfortable brackets and wires that tend to poke your mouth at all times of the day. You no longer have to adjust to the pain that comes with fixing your teeth, you can just put in your invisible aligner, pain free and go on with your day. While you may feel slight pain in the beginning, most people say that it doesn’t compare to the pain that comes with traditional braces.
They Can Be Easily Removed.
Being able to remove your aligners makes getting the smile you want that much easier. Our patients find this treatment so convenient because they are not bound to the eating restrictions that come with having braces, you can simply take them out and eat whatever you want. Removable braces also makes it easier to clean your teeth. While brushing your teeth with traditional, bracket braces is doable, it is also harder (and tedious). If it’s not done correctly, you run the risk of having spots on your teeth that indicate where the braces used to be. With Invisalign, you simply remove the aligners and brush normally.
