Looking at other people with straight and beautiful teeth has always made you a little bit envious. You have been very conscious about your teeth for some time and tend to try and hide them when you are around people with a great smile. Now may be a good time for you to get the straight teeth you have always wanted with Invisalign.
You have known for a long time that traditional braces could give you straight teeth but you did not want everyone to know. With the Invisalign system of invisible aligners, no one else needs to know unless you tell them.
The Invisalign aligners are clear plastic – custom-made to fit closely over your teeth. They will do the same thing as braces. Once you have been given the digital scan at the dentist’s office, a plan will be made to move your teeth into specific positions. Before you leave the office, you will be able to see on a computer screen what your teeth will look like when the alignment process is completed.
Each aligner will need to be worn for about two weeks. Then, you simply take the next one in the series and wear them for two weeks. Each aligner should be worn for about 22 hours each day.
When the aligners are made, they are precision cut so that they will not irritate your gums. This also makes them very comfortable.
Besides being almost completely invisible, the aligner system gives you several advantages over braces. One of the best advantages is that they are removable. This lets you clean your teeth normally by brushing and flossing.
You can also remove them for eating. This means that you can eat whatever you want and you do not need to even think about anything getting stuck in wires or brackets – because there are none. When you are finished eating, you simply brush your teeth and then put the aligners back in.
This system is great for most everyone. Even teens that are very reluctant to get braces will prefer Invisalign. They are often embarrassed about braces but would not mind this system because it will do the same thing. They want straight teeth that look good.
Many adults who did not have the advantage of getting braces when they were younger can get Invisalign, too. Even some celebrities get them to ensure their teeth look their best so that they can smile widely and gladly show off their beautiful teeth.
If you are wondering whether or not your teeth can be straightened with the Invisalign system, you can easily find out. This system can correct many dental problems including crossbite, crowded teeth, overbite or underbite, open bite, and gaps between teeth.
If you or your children are active in sports you do not need to change anything. There are no wires or brackets to break, so that will not be a problem. It also means that you do not have to be concerned about making an emergency visit if a wire breaks.
When you get aligners for teens, there is a built-in way to be sure that they are wearing them enough. The aligners come with a blue compliance indicator that will reveal how much they are being worn.
This system also lets you make fewer visits. Although you will still need to make some checkup appointments, there will be fewer to make.
