Are you tired of your misaligned, overcrowded, or uneven teeth? Have you been considering braces to correct alignment issues for a straighter smile? Instead of feeling embarrassed, restrained, or uncomfortable by traditional metal braces, opt for Invisalign treatments. They provide various benefits, such as limited dietary restrictions and a discreet appearance compared to metal braces. For most patients, the Invisalign timeline for treatment is twelve to eighteen months. In recent times, the Invisalign system has successfully delivered beautifully aligned smiles.
Invisalign can provide straight teeth for teens and adults. They are as effective as the conventional metal braces. Invisalign treatment can address various concerns, including crooked teeth, crowded teeth, gaps, overbites, underbites, and open bites. The plastic trays can treat problems with primary and permanent teeth and can help people who want a straighter smile.
Invisalign offers patients numerous advantages over traditional braces, such as:
The practically invisible trays are designed to fit your teeth comfortably. The aligner trays are also made of transparent dental-grade plastic that is significantly less noticeable than metal wires and brackets.
Reduced Treatment Time
Often, patients can complete their treatment in about half the time usually required for metal braces, which can take up to two years. We also offer Invisalign therapies, which can be completed in about six months.
Greater Patient Comfort
The smooth plastic used for Invisalign does not irritate lips and gums when compared to the metal brackets. This is especially beneficial for sportspersons since they are less likely to suffer cuts and injuries to their mouths.
No Dietary Restrictions
Unlike metal braces, Invisalign patients can take out their aligners to eat. This generally reduces the diet restrictions that patients have to face while undergoing orthodontic treatments.
Improved Oral Hygiene
Since the plastic trays can be removed, you can better maintain your oral health. You can follow your regular hygiene routine throughout your treatment period.
The Invisalign treatment uses clear transparent trays to move teeth into the correct alignment gradually. These aligners are custom-fabricated to fit your smile for maximum comfort and effectiveness securely. You will receive new sets of aligners throughout treatment once every two weeks.
You are expected to wear the Invisalign trays for at least twenty to twenty-two hours each day, only removing them to perform your oral functions. Based on your smile correction, you can expect your Invisalign treatment duration to range from about twelve to eighteen months. Your commitment to following the recommended instructions can also significantly influence the course of your treatment. After your treatment is complete, we will provide customized retainers that will help maintain the alignment and prevent the movement of teeth.
