What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that can help you straighten your teeth without the discomfort of metallic or ceramic braces.
But the lack of discomfort alone didn’t make this treatment revolutionary. Traditional braces are bulky looking and aesthetically unappealing. As a result, many patients, especially adults, who would’ve never considered wearing braces are now looking into Invisalign because of its design.
Invisalign involves a series of custom made clear aligners that are strong as traditional braces but aren’t noticeable. The aligners are made from thermoplastic resin, a material that is strong enough to treat open bites, crossbite, gapped teeth, crowded teeth, deep bite, and underbite. However, this type of treatment isn’t meant to treat severe cases of malocclusions.
What to Expect
Invisalign benefits go beyond being able to play sports or not having to worry about plaque build-up.
During the treatment, you can eat all of your favorite foods regardless of how chewy, sticky, or crunchy they are. Another added benefit is the fact that you’ll experience less pain compared to metal and ceramic braces. There will still be pressure on your teeth and gums, but it’s the most comfortable treatment option on the market right now. Also, if you have sensitive gums, you can ask your specialist for advice on reducing the friction between the aligners and your gums.
After the procedure is complete, because the teeth tend to shift back to their former position, you’ll be given retainers to wear.
During the appointment, the specialist will first check the state of your teeth and decide whether you’re a good fit for Invisalign. If you’re a good fit for the treatment (most people are), a 3D scan will be taken of your teeth and gums, rather than making a mold of your teeth in the traditional treatments. The information will be processed by a computer that will calculate how your teeth will move and how long the treatment will take. You can even see a preview of the results.
Usually, the treatments last anywhere between 6 and 16 months, depending on the severity of the case. During the treatment, a new set of clear aligners will be made for you every two or three weeks.
