What does Invisalign do?
Invisalign is a revolutionary new way to straighten teeth, offering an appealing alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments like braces. Your teeth will be progressively aligned over time thanks to clear, plastic aligners that fit over your teeth.
You can easily remove the aligners for teeth cleaning and eating, but you want to wear them for at least 22 hours per day for optimal results. If you’re not eating or brushing your teeth, Invisalign aligners should stay in your mouth.
Is Invisalign really better than braces?
Invisalign is an increasingly popular means to fix poorly aligned teeth, especially among young adults, due to its ease of use and comfort. Curious about why Invisalign might be better than braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches? Check out these benefits:
Invisibility, so people never see a mouthful of metal, they see your real teeth.
Comfort, so you don’t have to worry about your mouth getting cut up by pointy mental braces.
Convenience, with the ability to immediately remove them whenever you need to eat, floss, or brush your teeth.
Timing, because with Invisalign, you can expect to see results up to 50% faster than with other orthodontic techniques.
Is Invisalign right for me?
Invisalign can effectively fix mild to moderate dental misalignments, such as:
- Crowded teeth
- Spaces between teeth
- Rotated teeth
- Teeth misalignment after braces
Invisalign might not be the right treatment for you if you have major alignment and orthodontic issues. Your dentist might recommend an alternative treatment if this is the case. Book an appointment with BENE Dental to find out if Invisalign is right for you.
What can I expect from Invisalign treatment?
Your dentist will start by examining your teeth to check that Invisalign is the right choice for you. They will take diagnostic photos and an impression of your teeth. With these, your dentist will be able to form an individualized treatment plan that suits your specific needs.
Then your dentist customizes clear, plastic aligners that fit your teeth. The aligners will gradually move your teeth into their proper positions as you wear them. As your teeth begin to shift, new aligners may be made. At the end of this process, your smile will have its new shape!
