HOW INVISALIGN TEETH ALIGNERS WORK
AN INCREDIBLY POPULAR DENTAL TREATMENT
Invisalign aligners are an alternative to traditional metal braces. They are virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable plastic aligners that are custom–made to fit each individual’s teeth.
Invisalign aligners work by gradually moving the teeth into their desired positions using a series of aligners. Each aligner is slightly different in shape and size and is designed to move the teeth a little bit at a time. The aligner is worn for two weeks and then replaced with the next one in the series. Over time, the teeth will move into their desired position.
The aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable plastic material that is virtually invisible when worn. They are also removable, which makes it easier to brush and floss and to eat.
Invisalign aligners are an effective and comfortable way to straighten teeth. They are custom–made to fit each individual, which allows for a more precise and comfortable experience. The treatment time is generally shorter than that of traditional braces and there is no need for uncomfortable metal wires or brackets.
Important Steps to Make for Getting A Teeth Aligner
Step One: Consultation
The first step in any Invisalign journey is the initial consultation. A dentist will give you an examination and help guide you through what Invisalign can do for your teeth based on what they see during their examination. A dentist consultation is essential because different people may have different results with Invisalign teeth aligners. Some people may not see a significant difference at all from their original smile, while others could see a completely transformed smile that will change they way they look in a big way. It’s important to listen to what the doctor tells you regarding your changes for change from using Invisalign.
Step Two: Personal Treatment Plan
Once the dentist has examined you, they will perform a digital scan which can be used to create a highly customized, personal treatment plan that is specifically designed for your needs. This digital treatment scan will even let the doctor predict what your new smile will look like, although of course the real results can vary depending on a number of different factors.
Step Three: Wait for your Teeth Aligners to Be Made
Once you have your treatment plan, you will need to wait for your Invisalign teeth aligners to be made. Each Invisalign aligner is custom made using a highly advanced customization process. Your advanced Invisalign aligners will be completely customized for you so that no one else can wear them.
Step Four: Get Your First Teeth Aligners
With Invisalign teeth aligners, you will actually be replacing your Invisalign every so often as your teeth begin to shift and change; as your teeth progress, you will need new aligners to handle the current state of your teeth, which is something that your Invisalign treatment team will handle when it comes to it.
The first teeth aligners will be the very first Invisalign aligners on your journey towards a better looking smile, so make sure that you take care of them!
Step Five: Enjoy life (and wait for Invisalign to start working)
You will be going through the Invisalign process for about 12 to 18 months, depending on factors such as the current condition of your teeth, how well your teeth respond to the Invisalign trays, and simply how fast and effective Invisalign is for your personal case. Since Invisalign teeth aligners are so minimally invasive and don’t cause pain or discomfort, you will be able to live in mostly as before, with a few food restrictions due to the Invisalign trays.
Remember to take proper care of your new Invisalign and to follow all instructions regarding what you can and can’t eat, the best techniques for brushing and flossing, and anything else that could potentially divert your success.
