When you want to get straight teeth but don’t want other people to know, the Invisalign system can help you. Its nearly invisible aligners let you keep your secret and still get straight teeth in about the same amount of time. An Invisalign dentist 11758 can provide them for you.
The Invisalign System
When you get the Invisalign system, the dentist will provide you with a series of clear plastic aligners. The aligners will do the same thing as braces, slowly moving your teeth into place. You wear each aligner for about two weeks and then start using the next one.
Designed for Any Age
Whether you are getting the Invisalign aligners for your teen, or for yourself, they provide you with the ideal way to get straight teeth. They can be worn without anyone knowing you have them on. Adults love them because it provides them a way to get the straight teeth they always wanted to have but could not get earlier.
Unlike traditional braces, the aligners are completely removable. By removing them before you eat, this lets you eat what you want with your natural teeth. You do not need to avoid certain foods.
Cleaning your teeth is also not a problem. With braces, it takes considerably more effort to clean your teeth, and it is still possible that you may have some tooth decay. With Invisalign, you simply remove the aligners and clean your teeth normally by brushing and flossing.
Even though they are removable, you still need to wear them most hours of the day. The Invisalign dentist 11758 will recommend that you wear them for about 22 hours a day for best results.
Making the Aligners
The aligners will need to be made in a lab. A digital scan will be made of the position of your teeth. Once this has been completed, it is sent to the lab. A plan will be made as to how your teeth can be moved into the correct position, and then the aligners will be made to accomplish it. Each aligner is designed to fit your gum line so that they are as comfortable as possible.
Depending on the severity of the misalignment of your teeth, you can expect to wear the aligners from a year to a year-and-a-half. When the treatment has been completed, you will have straight teeth that you will be glad to show off.
The Invisalign system is constantly being improved to be beneficial to more and more people. It can be used to correct many dental problems including an overbite, underbite, crossbite, crowded teeth, gap teeth, an open bite, and more. People with teeth that are badly misaligned will be recommended to get braces.
