Traditional metal braces are often considered unappealing for teenagers and adults wishing to straighten their teeth. In contrast, Invisalign offers a discreet, comfortable, and convenient solution for correcting misaligned teeth and bites. With Invisalign, you can enhance your smile without feeling self-conscious about visible brackets and wires throughout your treatment.
The Invisalign System
Invisalign is an advanced method for straightening teeth with minimal disruption to your lifestyle. This treatment involves using a series of customized clear aligners carefully crafted to fit over your teeth. The aligners work gradually and gently to shift your teeth into their desired positions, following the precise movements that Dr. Sheila Mahooti will explain during your consultation.
The clear aligners in Invisalign treatment are extremely discreet, allowing you to be yourself without hiding your smile. They are custom-made to ensure maximum comfort, and their removable nature allows for easy eating and brushing of your teeth, promoting good oral hygiene throughout the treatment process.
Here are a few more important aspects that distinguish the Invisalign system:
- The aligners are smooth and comfortable. Throughout the Invisalign treatment, you will progress to a new set of aligners every two weeks until the treatment is finished.
- The aligners are made from virtually invisible plastic, which makes them barely noticeable when smiling. Orthodontic treatment is often discreet, and most people can’t tell you are undergoing it. With Invisalign, you can achieve a beautiful smile without significant disruptions to your daily life.
- There are no brackets or wires to worry about, reducing the risk of injury and eliminating the need for frequent dental visits for repairs or adjustments.
- With the Invisalign system, you typically wear the aligners for approximately 22 hours daily. This flexibility allows you to remove them while eating and performing oral hygiene, making it convenient to enjoy your favorite foods and maintain proper oral care. It is important to clean the aligners as instructed to ensure hygiene.
- During the treatment process, you will visit your dentist every 6-8 weeks to receive your next set of aligners and assess your treatment progress. This regular monitoring helps ensure that your treatment is on track and allows for necessary adjustments.
Invisalign treatment is highly suitable for individuals with busy and active lifestyles. Unlike traditional braces, there are no wires to adjust, which reduces the risk of dental accidents related to loose wires. Moreover, with Invisalign, you can choose when to visit the dentist for regular check-ups and to receive your next set of aligners.
