Find yourself hiding your smile in pictures? Self-conscious about gaps or crooked teeth? Don’t be. Misaligned teeth are a common dental concern for many individuals. The good news is that there is now a discreet and effective solution to help.
Invisalign® is a popular name brand of clear aligners. The aligner itself is a clear, plastic cover that fits snugly over your teeth,
Invisalign® aligners are custom-made for each patient using a 3-D model created from a 3D scan or impression to ensure a perfect, comfortable fit, helping to gently help your teeth shift into proper positioning over time.
Treatment involves not one, but anywhere from six to over 30 aligners, each one taking your teeth one step closer to perfect alignment. You wear each aligner for two weeks before moving to the next one. A full course of treatment can take up to two years but every case is individually planned and executed. Since the aligners are comfortable to wear and essentially invisible, you’re unlikely to mind.
Advantages of Invisalign®
One of the advantages of Invisalign®, generally, is that they can be taken out. So eating, dental hygiene, and any other dental work you might need can all be carried out as usual since you can take the aligner out as needed. Cleaning the aligner is easy, too.
