What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a treatment, which is made to straighten your teeth and is practically invisible. By using 3D computer- imaging technology, it is possible for you to see the treatment plan – from your start position of your teeth to your final position. It is amazing, that today we are able to custom make aligners, which are made specifically for each person, which makes it customised and adapted for everyone depending on their needs and wants. These clear aligners will move your teeth by little steps and will have to be replaced every two weeks in order for you to get your desired teeth position.
Invisalign clear aligners are made in a way, which moves the teeth by little and controlled movements. The timing of movement is controlled depending on each treatment plan, which is usually decided at the start of treatment by your dentist. It gives the opportunity to carefully plan the best way for you and gives you the possibility to plan ahead according to your plan, which is an important aspect in todays busy world. The Invisalign treatment time depends on each case individually based on its complexity, however, usually it is approximately the same as for the traditional braces.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible, which is one of the reasons why so many people prefer this treatment method than others. It is hard for anyone to notice that you are wearing aligners, which makes everyone feel more comfortable and it is easier to wear the aligners and not worry about the looks.
Nevertheless, it is sometimes hard to enjoy the foods or drinks that you love while wearing traditional braces, because there are foods that can get stuck in your teeth and make you feel uncomfortable in the public. It is amazing, that you can remove aligners and enjoy all the food that you love! Nonetheless, it is easy to maintain your oral hygiene, because you can easily remove your aligners and brush and floss your teeth as normally, which can sometimes be hard to do while wearing traditional braces.
