If you know someone who’s worn Invisalign or if you’ve seen an advertisement on television for clear braces, there’s a good chance you are interested in this treatment option. The idea of enjoying more comfortable and very discreet orthodontic treatment is hard for many people to pass up. If you’re wondering how to find out if Invisalign is right for you, your first step should be to schedule an appointment with a dentist who provides Invisalign.
An Invisalign consultation will involve a physical examination, diagnostics (X-rays), and a conversation with an Invisalign provider about your smile goals and your lifestyle. If your dentist believes that you’re a good match for this treatment option, your treatment could start in a matter of weeks.
Can Invisalign improve any smile?
Invisalign can make a great deal of difference with most orthodontic concerns. This orthodontic system can close gaps between teeth, straighten crooked teeth, and improve occlusal issues like overbites and open bites. Invisalign may not work for everyone; some folks may require conventional orthodontia. This is why it’s important to consult with a dentist about your treatment options.
How do I take care of my teeth with clear braces?
Caring for your teeth with Invisalign is incredibly easy and convenient. Invisalign trays are removable for meals and oral hygiene. This allows you to eat your favorite foods without obstruction and brush and floss without difficulty. Patients who wear Invisalign love the fact that their braces are removable.
How long is Invisalign treatment?
The length of Invisalign treatment can vary from person to person. In most cases, Invisalign treatment is shorter than treatment times associated with conventional braces.
Will others notice that I am wearing braces?
Invisalign is very inconspicuous. Since Invisalign’s trays are made of clear plastic, your orthodontic treatment is virtually unnoticeable to others. This fact is especially advantageous to working professionals.
