While we all want straight and perfect-looking teeth, many of us are not born that way. Feeling confident in your smile is important and can help you feel better about yourself. Fortunately, there is a solution with Invisalign aligners. Invisalign can help eliminate a number of different issues and problems that are common in teeth and are a great alternative to braces. Here is everything you need to know about Invisalign.
What Is Invisalign?
For many years, the leading teeth straightener in the world were metal braces, as they provided the results everyone was looking for. However, with the relatively recent advancements in technology and medical sciences, a new teeth straightening star was born.
Behold, Invisalign aligners. Invisalign is a clear, smooth, and durable set of plastic aligners that are custom molded to your set of teeth. These aligners work to straighten your teeth and snap right into place.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign works to slowly adjust your teeth by putting slight pressure on them. Since they are custom fits, they will slide onto your teeth and become hardly noticeable at all. Invisalign is comfortable and can be removed at any time, unlike metal braces. These aligners are also affordable and flexible to your lifestyle, as you’ll still be able to eat your favorite foods.
Over a determined schedule set by your dentist, you will swap out these aligners for tighter fitting aligners over the course of months or years, depending on the results. Each set of aligners will slowly straighten your teeth. This process is continued until desired results are achieved.
How Long Is Treatment?
Treatment time can vary depending on desired results and how far you are from them. Generally speaking, Invisalign treatment can take a little over a year to reach desired results. During this process, you’ll have frequent visit-ups and check-ups to receive your new setup aligners and to ensure the process is going smoothly.
