Conventional metal braces turn many patients off, and keep them from experiencing smiles they really wish they could have. Invisalign treatment is an innovation in orthodontic care that is grounded on the principle of using a series of aligners to slowly correct crooked teeth over time.
How does Invisalign work?
Before your dentist begins the process, they make use of computer technology to develop images of your teeth the day you show up for your first visit, and then give you a snapshot of what they will look like once the treatment is complete.
After taking the images, the dentist sends the images to the laboratory where your customized aligners are created. Aligners are clear trays, resembling retainers, that fit your jaw-line. Unlike traditional braces that need continuous tightening, aligners delicately push your teeth into their proper position.
The most unique aspect of Invisalign is the amount of time you would have normally needed with traditional braces, gets chopped in half – if not less than that. Every other work, the patient needs to swap out their aligners with the new pair that was already crated for them. By regularly altering aligners, the radiant smile the patient is after slowly starts appearing.
Advantages of Invisalign
A major benefit is being able to take off the aligners to make brushing, and flossing, a breeze – a challenge for traditional braces patients, that would cause them to have nightmares about!
An additional benefit is that, the whole process can take happen in a s little as six months with qualified patients. Although this is not the norm, just the idea that this is possible, is something that gets patients fired up about getting the process done. While traditional braces can take up to as many as two years to achieve the ideal smile; Invisalign treatment can get you the same results within six months time.
Disadvantages of Invisalign treatment.
The only real disadvantage of Invisalign is the price; and when you weight the value against the cost, you can see why the one-time price is more than fair.
So, if being called “metal mouth,” is something you would rather avoid altogether, than Invisalign is absolutely your choice.
