Often, adults or older teens looking to straighten their teeth are put off the regular wires and brackets of traditional orthodontics. Are you seeking a solution to straighten your teeth but hesitant to commit to traditional braces? Look no further than clear aligner / invisible braces – Invisalign® !
What Is Clear Aligner / Invisible Braces - Invisalign® ?
Clear aligner / invisible braces – Invisalign® is a system of clear, removable aligners that are used to straighten teeth and correct bite issues. Invisalign® aligners are made of a smooth and clear plastic that is virtually invisible. Moreover, the aligners are custom-made for each patient, using advance 3D imaging technology and are changed every few as the teeth gradually shift into their desired position.
How Does Invisalign® Straighten Your Smile ?
Invisalign® treatment begins with a consultation with an Invisalign® provider, who will assess your teeth and bite to determine if you are a good candidate for the system. If Invisalign® is right for you, the provider will take digital scans of your teeth and use them to create a customized treatment plan.
You will then receive a series of clear aligners, worn for 20-22 hours a day and changed every 1-2 weeks. The aligners are comfortable to wear and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth gradually shift into their desired positions.
How Could You Benefit From Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is an excellent option for many patients who want to straighten their teeth and correct bite issues.
- Invisalign® is a subtle alternative to traditional braces, an excellent option for anyone who may feel conscious with regular metal and wire braces.
- With Invisalign®, treatment is typically much quicker, and results are seen in as little as six to eighteen months
- There is less pain and irritation to the gums and soft tissues in the mouth.
- Unlike regular metal and wire orthodontics, you don’t have dietary restrictions, as the trays are removed before eating
It’s Never Too Late For Straighter Teeth: No matter your age, you can have the straight, brilliant smile you’ve always wanted without clunky metal orthodontics.
Is Invisalign® Suitable for Kids ?
Invisalign® is a popular orthodontic treatment option for teens and adults, but it can also be effective for children who require orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is typically recommended for children who have all of their permanent teeth, which usually occurs around the age of 12 or 13. Additionally, children must be responsible enough to wear the aligners for the recommended 20-22 hours per day and follow all care instructions.
Invisalign® is effective for many types of orthodontic issues, including crowded teeth, gaps between teeth, overbites, underbites, and crossbites. However, more severe cases may require traditional braces or other orthodontic appliances.
In some cases, a combination of Invisalign® and traditional braces may be recommended. This is known as hybrid treatment, and it can be effective for children who have complex orthodontic issues.
