Discreet and convenient
As mentioned, it is a simple method for straightening your teeth. It uses clear thermoplastic aligners, which can be placed in your mouth and taken out as necessary so that it imposes no restrictions on your daily life. Invisalign is almost invisible, as the name suggests, so although you may have heard of Invisalign, it is likely that you have not seen it. The aligners can only be detected if someone looks very closely or you wish to tell them that you are undergoing teeth straightening.
To begin with, you will need to find out whether it is safe to straighten your teeth; this means undergoing a thorough examination of your teeth and gums to look for any signs of cavities, tooth decay or gum disease. If you are affected by any of these issues, they will need to be dealt with before you start.
If your dentist is certain that Invisalign is suitable for you, you can book a free Invisalign consultation and 3D examination of your teeth and gums with no obligation. The 3D scan will create a digital image of your mouth, and this can be manipulated to show you how your teeth can look after straightening with Invisalign. If you are happy with the predicted results, the before-and-after images will be used to map out a treatment plan that pushes your teeth into a neater formation. This will then be translated into a sequence of aligners that will apply gradual pressure onto your teeth to push them into place.
The number of aligners that you need will vary depending on how crooked your teeth are, to begin with. Invisalign uses cutting-edge 3D computer imaging technology, and the aligners themselves are 3D printed for excellent aesthetic results, accuracy and precision. The aligners will fit in your mouth smoothly and snugly, and other than a tight feeling around your teeth when you change from one aligner to the next, the treatment itself should be comfortable. As mentioned earlier, the aligners can be removed from your mouth when necessary; this will allow you to enjoy special moments and occasions, eat and drink as you wish, and maintain excellent dental hygiene. You can simply replace the aligners in your mouth once you are finished. Within 6 to 12 months, you can achieve a brand new smile that is aesthetically pleasing and encourages better dental health. There are different treatment plans available, depending on your dental requirements, and you can learn about payment plans to make the whole procedure more convenient.
