The Invisalign treatment, for instance, enables you to straighten your teeth without drawing much attention to yourself. It is a form of modern teeth straightening that does not require braces or other external appliances to achieve good results.
These will carefully shift your teeth into place and fix your crooked teeth in accordance with your orthodontist’s accurate measurements. There are no brackets or wires in this procedure, which is a plus. You’ll just have to replace your aligners every two weeks or so until the treatment is finished.
The good news is that there is a solution to teeth straightening without wires and brackets. Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that moves teeth using a series of clear, removable aligners that snap onto the teeth and gradually shift the teeth into the desired position.

Look for an Invisalign provider who is certified. A consultation is required to determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign. At this point, your Invisalign Certified dentist will determine if you are a good candidate. It may still be necessary to use traditional braces in some complex orthodontic cases.
When you can benefit from Invisalign, your dentist will explain the process including the financial obligations, and you will be better able to make an informed decision.
Getting a digital scan of your teeth and a 3D image or digital impressions of your open bite is the first step in the Invisalign process. An impression of your teeth is taken by your dentist first. Your dentist can create a treatment plan for your specific needs after studying these images.
It is possible for you to view your teeth during every stage of treatment by using this digital representation. Having completed this step, it’s time to order your custom-made aligner and start your treatment right away.
Invisalign aligners are made of BPA-free plastic that is comfortable to wear when compared to metal braces that tend to cause irritation to the insides of cheeks and gums.
During the day and while you sleep, wearing the aligners is sufficient. For up to 2 hours per day, you are free to remove the aligners. Thus, you should remove your aligners before eating, brushing and flossing your teeth, or making a speech.
You will gradually grow into a healthy and straight smile as you wear your aligners. It is much more pleasant to receive orthodontic treatment when you won’t even notice that you’re having treatment since the aligners are virtually invisible.
Typically, patients with Invisalign assume they will have to be constantly seen by their dentist. The opposite could not be further from the truth. An appointment with your dentist is recommended every six weeks.
You will change aligners approximately every two weeks to advance to the next stage of your treatment. When you wear Invisalign, you can see your progress toward having the healthier and straighter smile you’ve always wanted at every stage, unlike traditional braces where you only see the results at the end.
For adults, an Invisalign treatment usually lasts for about a year. Despite the fact that the treatment can last up to two years, it will be less painful than braces for young people. The lack of wires and brackets ensures your teen’s teeth will be visible much sooner, increasing their motivation and encouraging them to remain in treatment.
A portion of the responsibility rests with you. Throughout the entire course of treatment, Invisalign aligners must be worn 22 hours a day. When you wear the aligners less frequently than this, you may have a harder time achieving results.
