Your overall physical appearance can become compromised with an uneven smile caused by crooked teeth. You might be wondering what an Invisalign is. It is an invisible orthodontic alternative to traditional orthodontic solutions.
This clear and removable brace helps to align teeth, making it a good option for individuals who loathe the idea of displaying metal braces while smiling. Invisalign braces is regarded as a modern high tech solution for non-invasive teeth straightening of crooked teeth. It is worthwhile to know that Invisalign is made with transparent plastics which are comfortable to use.
THE INVISALIGN TREATMENT PROCEDURE
Invisalign dental braces are created at the Align Technologies Dental Laboratory through the use of Computer Aided Designs (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) processes following the digital scanning of your upper and lower gums.
Afterwards, the result of the digital assessment would be sent to you, alongside a proposed plan for invisible braces treatment aimed at teeth straightening. Consequently, Align Technologies Dental Laboratory will send your customised Invisalign aligners to your orthodontist. They will dispense the invisible braces to you bi-weekly during the routine follow up appointments for us to analyse and manage your Invisalign treatment appropriately.
The trick behind the Invisalign power is linked to the positioning on the teeth. You must wear each Invisalign Aligner in its appropriate order to enable your teeth to gently shift in small increments into the positions they are intended to be. You can always remove these aligners for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing. However, you must wear them for a minimum of 20 hours daily to promote a successful repositioning of your teeth.
Every time you wear a new aligner tray, it will most definitely feel tight making your teeth a little bit sore. It will, however, feel loose after some time, pointing that it’s time to wear the next aligning tray in the series given to you. By the time you’ve worn all the aligners in the series given to you by your orthodontist, your teeth will already be perfectly aligned and straightened.
About 20 to 30 Invisalign aligners are needed on an average for both your upper and lower teeth throughout the treatment course, which could take a year or less. The treatment time is dependent on the specific alignment problem of the individual.
WHO NEEDS TO USE INVISALIGN?
Although Invisible braces straighten the teeth faster than metal braces, it is worthwhile to know that the period needed to straighten the teeth depends largely on the rate at which individual treatment progresses.
This clear, invisible dental solution is particularly beneficial for individuals who have the following dental issues:
- Wide Gaps Between Teeth: Wide spaces between teeth are usually caused by an abnormal growth of either the upper or lower jaw leading to shifting of the teeth.
- Overcrowded Teeth: This is as a result of insufficient room on the jams to accommodate all the teeth.
- Overbite/Crossbite: Teeth bite on the upper jaw extends over the lower teeth bite or both jaws are not properly aligned.
- Mild Relapse: A relapse might occur after treatment with traditional braces due to some movements of the tooth.
