Being not comfortable with your smile can have a negative effect on your everyday life. Dental braces are common for teenagers and children, but if you are an adult, they may make you frustrated and self-conscious, especially if your profession wants you to be interacting with clients and colleagues constantly. Traditional fixed type of braces can leave your mouth inflamed, which can make the simple day to day tasks very exhausting.
Invisalign braces are the answers
Invisalign braces are invisible since they are made of clear plastic. There are no metal parts included in these types of braces, which means that you can smile throughout the entire process of teeth straightening with a great confidence. Invisalign braces can be removed easily so you can take them out whenever you want to drink or eat or brush. This helps you to maintain good oral health during the treatment as well.
Things to expect during Invisalign treatment
During the process, you will be provided with series of aligners which are custom made particularly for your teeth. You replace the present aligners for every two weeks. Your teeth will shift towards their appropriate position by doing so. Since the changes are slow, you will have a smaller amount of pain and discomfort during the treatment when compared with traditional fixed braces.
The procedure normally takes around six to fifteen months to complete, but it depends on the severity of the issue to be resolved.
The first step in the treatment is speaking with your dentist and talk about potential Invisalign treatment methods which are available for you. Impressions of your teeth are made and images of your smile are captured.
3D computerized pictures of your teeth are produced so that you can see what your smile looks like once the process of straightening is complete. Your Invisalign braces are then prepared.
