Invisalign has quickly become an extremely popular dental procedure. Invisalign is now a proven product that can straighten your teeth quicker, more comfortably, and especially without the look of unsightly metal braces in your mouth. There has never been a better time to get the smile you have always wanted. Great for both teenagers and adults, Invisalign is a first-class correction system that can improve your smile, and lifestyle, for the better.
Are You a Candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign clear braces systems are designed for both teenagers and adults. Depending on the condition of your teeth or your teenager’s teeth, Invisalign can be used to treat a variety of different orthodontic issues.
The treatment time required for Invisalign is dependent on the type of tooth movements needed for your individual correction. The smaller the movement, the less time will be needed for successful improvements.
Invisalign is an effective treatment for a variety of patients. Not only will it help to straighten any crooked teeth, but it can also help correct an overbite as well. If you or your teenager have gaps in your teeth and want to bring your teeth closer together, you are also good candidates for using the Invisalign system. If you experience crowding teeth you will also benefit from wearing Invisalign braces to correct the alignment and position of those teeth. Invisalign is both fantastic for teenagers and adults alike. The digital technology behind the Invisalign braces system makes it easy for Northside Dental to treat a wide range of complex dental issues.
The Primary Benefit, Invisalign is Comfortable and Clear
One of the best features of Invisalign is that they are more comfortable than traditional braces. There is no tightening required because the system works using clear plastic trays that are digitally designed to fit your teeth. As the treatment progresses, more trays are introduced to maintain slight and constant pressure on the teeth.
Not only is Invisalign more comfortable than traditional braces, but they are also far less visible. The Invisalign trays are clear, and people will barely notice them if they do not know they are in your mouth.
The aligner trays, which are made of a special clear plastic, mold to your teeth and are designed to give you the results you desire, without the discomfort and look of traditional braces. You will appreciate that the trays are hardly noticeable, especially if you have been putting off corrective treatment with traditional metal braces for that very reason.
Another huge benefit is that the trays are removable. This allows for removal for continued proper brushing and flossing, as well as eating and even if you have a personal or professional obligation that would be better suited without visible braces. The trays must be in position 20 to 22 hours a day for any measure of success.
The Invisalign Process
The process of getting Invisalign braces begins with a consultation with Northside Dental who specializes in the placement of these braces. After an evaluation and consultation, if we together are going to pursue the Invisalign program, we will begin by capturing 3D digital images of your teeth and your mouth. These images create a starting point for your proposed correction. The images are put into a software program that then allows us to generate a point B, our desired goal. You will be able to see your smile upon completion. If we both approve our objective, then this program enters yet another software package driving a CAD/CAM system. The trays will be produced through this system. The trays are digitally designed to push the teeth in question .25 of a millimeter every two weeks. The next tray is then introduced to continue the pressure in encouraging the ligaments around the tooth to allow the tooth to move.
Based on our plan of treatment that you and Northside Dental designed, you will be given the additional trays that are meant to be changed out every two weeks. We will need to set appointments every few months to make sure the alignment is going according to plan. But this does mean you do not need to see us frequently to have wires tightened as with traditional braces. If there are any issues with your aligners between visits, make sure to contact us and discuss the issues with us.
Remember, the Invisalign trays are removable, which can be a major benefit. But if it is a teenager that will abuse this privilege then it might be of consideration when initially reviewing options. The aligners must be worn 20 to 22 hours every day for the treatment to be successful. It will take discipline.
