Why Hide Your Smile When You Can Easily Straighten Overlapping, Widely Spaced or Crowded Teeth Without the Embarrassment or Discomfort of Wearing Metal Braces?
There’s nothing like a beautiful smile to brighten up your day. If you want to get your teeth straightened but can’t stand the thought of looking like a high school student wearing metal braces, Invisalign treatment may be just the option you’re looking for.
Whether you have overlapping, widely spaced or crowded teeth, Invisalign treatment will straighten them as effectively as braces…without any fuss or embarrassment. You’ll have no metal wires to irritate your mouth.
The treatment is discreet and convenient. Even your own family members will find it hard to notice your aligners.
Why Choose Invisalign over Metal Braces
Invisalign treatment has several advantages over teeth straightening using metal braces:
– Can be taken off while eating so you can enjoy your food and drinks
– Removing the aligners while brushing and flossing leads to improved oral care
– Invisalign aligners are transparent so you can go about your daily tasks without feeling self-conscious
– Enables you to track the progress of your treatment every day
– The process can be used to correct overcrowded, overlapping or widely spaced teeth
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign treatment begins with your dentist taking x-rays, photographs and impressions of teeth to create a 3-D digital image. The images are used to work out a plan which includes precise teeth movement and the approximate duration of treatment which is about a year for most adults.
Your dentist will show you a realistic view of your perfect smile with virtual 3D treatment plan ClinCheck. This program lets you visualise how your teeth will look after the treatment, as well as tracking the series of movements your teeth will undergo.
Based on your treatment plan, the dentist will prepare aligners from BPA-Free high quality plastic which are comfortable and will not irritate your cheek. The aligners are almost invisible to the eye and will be barely noticeable when you wear them.
Invisalign treatment involves controlled movement of your teeth. The degree of movement for each aligner and the timing is carefully controlled. At every stage of treatment a certain set of teeth are permitted to move. This provides a better degree of control for teeth to move into the desired position without others coming in the way.
To get the best results aligners are required to be worn for about 22 hours a day.
As the treatment progresses you will be able to see for yourself the progress you’re having towards achieving the smile you always wanted.
