Benefits of Invisalign®
A smile can be your greatest asset. It is a true reflection of how one feels, and the lack of confidence reflecting in one's smile is very unbecoming. A confident smile, on the other hand, elevates one's visual appeal by lighting up one's face.
However, misaligned and crooked teeth often take away one's confidence and leave one feeling very self-conscious about their appearance. But braces are no better, and the very prominent fixture on your teeth can further deteriorate your confidence.
At Queen Anne Family Dental, we offer a simple, near-invisible solution to help fix your smile.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign are clear braces that go over your teeth, to fix alignment without damaging the visual appeal of your smile. They work just like braces and can help transform your smile, just without the very prominent fixture over your teeth. It is a unique and straightforward treatment option that can fix your teeth alignment quickly and comfortably.
There are three main steps to getting the perfect smile using Invisalign.
| First doctor's appointment – here, the dentist will take your measurements and plan your aligners accordingly. Once your first set of the aligners is ready, you will put it on daily, removing it only when eating, brushing your teeth or sleeping.
| Regular Checkups – You will have to visit your dentist every 4 to 6 weeks to get the progress checked, and you may need to put on a new pair of aligners after 6 to 8 weeks.
| Say Hello to Your New Smile – Depending upon the condition of your teeth and how well they respond to the aligners, the treatment can take anywhere between 6 months to a year, maybe even more. However, once you are done going through the decided series and number of aligners, you will surely notice a massive improvement in the appearance of your smile.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign is a simple and more visually appealing solution for several teeth alignment problems. Whether you have protruding teeth, spaced out teeth, or crooked teeth, you can solve it all with Invisalign.
Besides them being aesthetically appealing, they also offer a more comfortable solution than braces. There are no metal fixtures over your mouth. You are free to eat and brush your teeth as you usually would, making them a better option for those looking for a hassle-free solution.
Here your teeth are not being pushed or pulled as they are with braces. The low impact on the dental structure also ensures the user is not sore. The rate of recovery and progress is definitely slower with Invisalign than it is with braces, but it is a more hassle-free, comfortable and visually appealing alternative that many people prefer.
However, for Invisalign to work, you must wear them for a set number of hours every day. You will also have to check the progress, go in for regular dental exams and get your next set of aligners on time or else the entire process may elongate more so than necessary.
