Have you been considering Invisalign? You are not alone! This has quickly become one of the most popular cosmetic options for people over the last few years, mostly because the Invisalign system makes it easy to correct those stubborn teeth without making it too obvious.
The Invisalign system makes that possible by using clear plastic trays to reposition your teeth. It’s similar to that of a conventional dental treatment like braces, where the teeth are being moved by forces directly applied to them.
The trays are created after the dentist gathers information during the initial appointment, using a visual examination, along with x-rays and impressions. That same data is then used for treatment planning.
Patients switch Invisalign trays approximately every two weeks, and it’s important to use the trays in the sequence recommended by Dr. Mark, wearing them between 20 and 22 hours for the best outcomes.
Invisalign allows patients to enjoy the results of their treatment, and see their teeth get straighter as time passes. No need to wonder what your teeth really look like during the treatment process.
Beyond its aesthetic advantages, Invisalign offers patients many oral health benefits:
Trays can be removed for brushing and flossing.
Patients also take out the trays at mealtime, which means no dietary restrictions during treatment.
Invisalign requires fewer dentist visits for adjustments. Because the patient is doing most of the work by switching out the trays, dental appointments are necessary every 2-4 weeks, allowing the dentist to monitor your progress.
Recent advances in Invisalign technology have made this treatment an option for patients with malocclusions (“bad bites”) in addition to crooked teeth, too.
If you want to straighten your teeth without managing a mouth full of metal, the answer is simple- Ask Dr. Mark if the Invisalign system will work for you.
