Wondering a discrete yet effective way to straighten your teeth? The Invisalign treatment may be what you’ve been looking for!
But before you consider the Invisalign treatment, it is important that you understand how it works, its benefits, etc. So, please use this article to find answers to the most common questions and then schedule an appointment with an skilled Invisalign provider to obtain more specific details to your personal needs.
What is Invisalign?
Invisaling is a virtually invisible treatment that can help you achieve the dazzling smile you’ve always dreamed of. It is consisted of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners – that you change with a certain frequency, and is much more comfortable than regular braces.
At your first appointment, your orthodontist will do your ‘3D treatment plan’ and will explain you the complete treatment like for example, the series of movements your teeth will go trough during the treatment. This will allow you to see in advance what your smile is expected to look like at the end of the treatment.
What are the main benefits of the treatment?
- Invisalign aligners are basically clear. That means people may even not notice that you’re wearing braces. This makes Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle.
- You can remove your Invisalign aligners any time you want. Unlike with regular braces, Invisalign offers you the ability to eat and drink what you want during treatment. All you need to do is simply remove the aligners. In addition, you can also remove the aligners to brush and floss.
- Traditional braces involve metal brackets or wires that can cause irritation to your mouth. With Invisalign treatment you won’t have this issue plus you’ll likely spend less time in the doctor’s chair once your office visits during treatment won’t involve metal or wire adjustments,
