Some orthodontic patients, no matter the age or needs, land on Invisalign treatment for straightening their teeth. It makes sense – Invisalign is a revolutionary form of orthodontic work and an alternative to wire braces. But some may pause on the process: how can molded plastic be better than stainless steel and ceramic at straightening my teeth?
Invisalign works, even while being almost undetectable to those around you. This is one reason why our patients should feel confident about using this form of corrective work, and it’s just one of many!
Invisalign Is Comfortable And Easy To Use
One advantage the Invisalign system has over its wire predecessors is the ease of use. The plastic aligners are made from a thermoplastic material called SmartTrack that contains no BPA, BPS, or latex. They are removable, and the new aligners made for your progress can be swapped in with a short trip to the orthodontist. No tweaking or new ceramic pieces are necessary!
One reason why clients prefer Invisalign is because the system makes cleaning your teeth much more manageable! You can remove them to brush and floss your teeth, getting rid of the need to work around complicated wires and preventing food from stick to any hardware in your mouth. It also means that, even though you’re straightening your teeth, you don’t have to worry about eating rough-textured or sticky foods!
We Customize Invisalign Treatments To Your Needs
The Invisalign system is never a one-size-fits-all solution. This modern approach this system takes to teeth-straightening uses a set of plastic aligners that are custom-made to fit your specific teeth. At your first may be more appropriate to say “at one of your appointments” appointment, the orthodontist will scan your teeth with a laser scanner, removing the need for taking multiple impressions (and ensuring you don’t have to have the thick alginate paste in your mouth!).
Based on the scans, the orthodontist will create an individualized treatment plan using information like the directions of your teeth, the length of your needs, and how the teeth should react to each stage of the treatment. The scans and dental information are used to make a set of aligners for you based on this individualized treatment plan.
Invisalign Is Effective!
The most important reason you should feel confident about this orthodontic process is that it works for a wide range of needs! Each pair of Invisalign trays are molded to pressure and shift your teeth closer to perfect alignment. The advanced technology and cutting edge plastic behind the Invisalign system make it easy for your orthodontist to ensure that every tooth moves into proper alignment. You must visit your orthodontist roughly every eight weeks so that they can ensure that the Invisalign treatments are working and your teeth are moving into place correctly.
For most patients, Invisalign is as effective at straightening teeth as any other orthodontic process, yet is much more practical, comfortable, and fashionable. Despite the ease, Invisalign doesn’t take longer than traditional braces, and depending on the patient, they can be quicker. Combined with the clarity of the plastic, this makes the system an ideal choice for teenagers and adults who might be self-conscious about getting braces!
