First impression is everything – and that includes having straight, white teeth! Do you know that people who have great teeth are perceived to have a more pleasing personality, to be more successful and smarter? Unfortunately, not every one of us is blessed to have the perfect teeth, but how do you treat protruding and misaligned teeth?
Invisalign is a great solution if you do not prefer to undergo the painful, old-fashioned process of getting braces, which includes wires and brackets. When we get to an age, we want to avoid braces as much as possible because aesthetically, it doesn’t look so good. But imagine semi-rigid, transparent, heat resistant, clear plastic trays that fit snugly onto your teeth for a certain period of time that people won’t even notice you are wearing it. It aims to gently and gradually move the crooked teeth into the right position and take less time than wearing braces.
Invisalign aligners are also more convenient and hygienic because you can easily remove them every time you need to eat and clean them whenever necessary. If you ever wonder how Invisalign can help straighten your teeth, read on!
A Unique and Innovative Approach that Leads to Effectively Straightening of Your Teeth.
Our Invisalign orthodontist assesses the needs of your teeth by taking an X-Ray and advanced scanners such as the iTero Scanner. Then, a 3D version of your future smile will be shown to you, which you will go over with your orthodontist. With the use of cutting-edge software, a digital roadmap consists of a series of aligners to get you to your goal.
Invisalign predicts how your teeth will move.
Every teeth shift is planned, where we calculate the right amount of force required to move your teeth to the ideal position. That means less pain! Each aligner will focus only on a few teeth at a time.
It Improves Your Oral Health.
Invisalign offers customized aligners, precisely trimmed so it will not hurt your gums. You can avoid gum irritation where you may develop periodontal disease, leading to gum recession and infection. Because of Invisalign’s specialized fitting, maintaining a healthier mouth will never be compromised just because of tooth alignment.
With the smooth plastic structure, your tongue is also less likely to be infected. Brackets on traditional braces can easily rub against your tongue, which can turn pretty nasty if you don’t take care of it. But with Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about an infected tongue.
Invisalign is Made with Smart Track Materials.
It is developed by biomechanical engineers, which means the material used is designed to be flexible for greater comfort. It snuggles into your teeth for a great fit and more precise movements. Because it’s so convenient, many patients prefer wearing Invisalign.
You Can Keep the Same Lifestyle.
According to this orthodontist clinic in Vancouver, Canada, Invisalign offers many advantages over braces. Invisalign aligners look similar to gum shields or clear retainers. These aligners are removable. Unlike with wearing braces, where you have to avoid specific types of food, with Invisalign, you can keep eating the same food without the fear of it affecting your aligner.
Both your teeth and aligner can easily be cleaned. You can still brush and floss your teeth as you usually do without the need for any additional tools.
Because of its clear structure, it is also almost invisible that no one would notice that you are straightening your teeth. It will not affect your appearance too! Plus, you only need to wear it for 20 to 22 hours a day, so if you need to present yourself at an important meeting or on a date, you can definitely remove it. It will not impact your speech either. Invisalign is a life-changing aligner without you having to adjust or compromise your lifestyle. You can easily get used to it after two days.
Invisalign Helps Close Gaps the Fastest Way.
No patients are the same, so the treatment may take between 3 – 18 months. You may also be required to wear retainers if your situation is more complex to avoid gaps to re-open.
Invisalign Corrects Overbites.
Maybe you practice teeth-shifting habits such as thumb sucking, or perhaps your teeth grew in at an angle. Correcting overbites also means correcting your facial structure and speech impediments. Straightening your teeth corrects your bite and jaw move to the correct positions.
Invisalign Provides Durability and a Hygienic Solution.
Just because they are made of plastic does not mean that the aligners are not durable. These superb aligners can last for a duration as long as you remove them whenever you eat.
Because you only need to use the same aligner for two weeks, it guarantees that you’re putting in a fresh, new tray. There is also a lesser risk that your teeth will be stained, like what happens when you wear metal braces. These stains that are difficult to clean will not be an issue with Invisalign aligners.
Of course, you also have to do your part. As long as you wear the aligners all the time, maintain good oral health and never miss adjustment appointments, you can speed up an Invisalign treatment. It is also your responsibility to avoid excess sugar and note any abnormalities to address the necessary steps right away.
Here’s the good part! It does not matter whether you are a teenager or an adult. According to the Invisalign website, there is no age limitation for the Invisalign treatment. And if you are currently using braces, you can still switch to Invisalign. Simply make an appointment and consult with an orthodontist now.
