How to Get Teeth Straightened Gently with Invisalign
How to Get Teeth Straightened Gently with Invisalign

Invisalign are clear braces that are almost invisible to many people. These braces have been improved upon and based on their recent research and development; the Invisalign can now be used to treat over 90% of orthodontic problems. These clear aligners are the answer to the prayer of many that have always wanted teeth straightening without using the very conspicuous metal braces

These aligners have a lot of advantages. One of these features is that they are removable. Yes, removable. This feature helps users eat what they want without having a fear of getting their braces stained or having food particles stuck to them. It also helps its users maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing immediately after every meal so that they will not be at the risk of having tooth decay during their teeth straightening process.

These aligners are made using transparent plastic materials of very high quality. They are light and streamlined, so they are not so uncomfortable to be worn. These aligners just slide easily over your teeth, stay fixed and give very minor indications that you are undergoing teeth straightening. They give you the advantage to straighten your teeth discreetly.

The Process of Invisalign Treatment

The treatment process of Invisalign is a very simple one. It usually follows a pattern such as this:

  • Attending a consultation:

    It all begins with a visit to the dentist or orthodontist. During this visit, the dentist will take photographs and run the necessary scan to help make a plan for your teeth straightening. He will proceed to use an Invisalign software to get the movement of your teeth plotted. After this, the finished treatment plan is then used to design and print your aligners.

  • Getting customised aligners:

    Your customised aligners should be available during your next visit to the dentist. Here, your dentist will equip you with all the needed information to undergo a successful treatment with Invisalign. The slingers are fitted, attachments are placed on your teeth which are tooth coloured buttons to help the alignment process. In some cases some gaps are made between the teeth to help the motion.

    You will also be told how to clean and care for your braces to prevent them from getting stained, broken or harbouring leftover particles of food. Your dentist, by now may also tell you how long you will be expected to wear the braces for effective teeth straightening.

  • Beginning your treatment with the expected duration:

    After your aligners have been fixed in place, you will be expected to wear them for at least 22 hours daily. You will be free to remove these braces when you want to brush, eat or drink anything except water.

  • Having a follow-up visit to your dentist:

    During these visits, your dentist will check your teeth and aligners to look at the progress of the treatment and the adjustments to be made.

  • Final removal of braces:

    After you have worn your aligners, your dentist will check to confirm its work has been done and your teeth straightening went as planned. If the result is satisfactory, the braces will be finally removed, and you will be given a retainer for use at night.

    Retainers are always used to keep the teeth in place so that they may not return to their previous position. People may need to wear these retainers for the long term so the result of the alignment will remain in place.

5 Star Review IconI had stopped wearing retainers after a previous tooth straightening. The staff were very kind and did not tell me off! The work I have had done so far has been excellent and I am looking forward to a new more confident smile in a shorter time than with traditional braces!
