Traditional metal braces put-off many people from experiencing their desired smiles. Invisalign treatment is a new technology that is grounded on the principle of using a series of aligners that gradually straighten your crooked teeth.
How does Invisalign treatment work?
Before your dentist undertakes an invisalign treatment, they use computer imaging to create pictures of your teeth in it’s present state, and how they will look after the treatment is completed. With this treatment, there is no guess work. your dentist will show you the images and you can actually see, not just envision, how your teeth will look like in the future.
After taking the images, the dentist sends the pictures to the laboratory where your custom made aligners are created. Aligners are small, clear trays that fit your jaw-line. Unlike traditional braces that require constant tightening, aligners gently push your teeth into the new position.
The most unique aspect of an Invisalign treatment is that you visit your dentist regularly. Here, the dentist removes your old aligners and replaces them with new ones. By constantly changing aligners, you attain your radiant smile. Depending on the gravity of your condition, the entire treatment takes as little as six months.
Advantages of an Invisalign treatment
One major advantage is being able to remove the aligners to perform everyday activities without skipping a beat. All you need to do is, literally: remove aligners, eat, brush, floss, and then put the aligners on again!
Another advantage is that, apart from distancing yourself from an unsightly smile, you get your wonderful smile within a very short time. With traditional braces, it will take you two or three years to attain your perfect straight teeth; however, when using Invisalign treatment you will get your smile within six months.
Downside of Invisalign treatment
The only disadvantage of using Invisalign treatment is that its a little more costly, compared to traditional braces. This is due to the high costs imposed by the manufacturers, and the extra work done by your dentist. However, ask any person who has undergone the treatment. The results are always worth every penny.
