What is Invisalign?
It is an innovative orthodontic treatment that makes use of a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth. This form of dental care is a great option for patients who would like a straight smile, but don’t want to undergo traditional orthodontic treatment. The aligners are virtually invisible, removable and work very effectively to straighten crooked teeth.
Why choose Invisalign?
Because this form of treatment is made up of a series of clear aligners, the treatment is almost completely invisible, making the treatment an appealing option for those seeking a discreet orthodontic solution. The aligners are also removable, which means that they can be taken out during brushing, flossing and for meals — for this reason, there are no dietary restrictions.
How does Invisalign treatment work?
You will begin with a consultation, during which we will assess whether the treatment is a suitable option for you. If it is appropriate, we will create a customised treatment plan and take a mould of your mouth, from which your aligners will be constructed. When you wear your aligners, they work by exerting pressure on your teeth, moving them into new positions gradually over time.
Is Invisalign better than traditional braces?
When it comes to getting your teeth straightened, traditional braces and Invisalign both offer effective solutions. Invisalign is discreet, removable, and more comfortable, while traditional braces are a permanent fixture, great for severe cases of misalignment, and usually more cost-effective. It is important to talk with your dentist to determine the best option based on your particular needs and preferences.
What are the rules with Invisalign?
Invisalign is the clear, removable orthodontic treatment that can transform your smile, and it’s so easy to use! By following some simple rules, you can ensure that your Invisalign treatment is as effective as possible and achieve the perfect smile you’ve always wanted.
To make the most of Invisalign, all you need to do is wear your aligners for at least 20–22 hours per day and only remove them for eating, brushing, and flossing. Every two weeks, switch to a new set of aligners and be amazed at how your teeth gradually shift into place.
To keep your aligners clean and hygienic, brush them with a toothbrush and mild soap, and rinse them with water. And if you’re a fan of coffee, red wine, and popcorn, don’t worry! You can still enjoy your favorite treats, but it’s important to avoid them while wearing your aligners to prevent staining and damage.
With Invisalign, you can achieve the smile of your dreams and feel confident every step of the way. Be sure to check with your dental specialist for more information on proper care and the use of the aligners.
Will Invisalign affect my diet?
With Invisalign trays, you have the freedom to enjoy your favorite foods without worrying about diet restrictions as you can easily remove them before eating. However, it’s essential to maintain good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth after meals to prevent food particles from getting stuck between your teeth or gums. Besides, regular brushing not only helps keep your teeth healthy but also keeps your aligners clean, preventing stains and bacteria buildup caused by food particles.
