Straighter teeth make our smiles look and feel better. Invisalign is the newest technology to allow teens and adults to have a more perfect smile without the use of bulky braces.
The Invisalign system is designed to create a custom process for straightening a patient’s crooked teeth. First, the dentist will take an imprint of your upper and lower teeth to establish what needs to be corrected. Then, a series of gradual alignment trays are created, to slowly and subtly move the teeth into position.
This is typically done with 20 to 30 trays, each with minimal changes, that must be worn for two weeks at a time. The first time a new tray is worn, your teeth might feel slight tightness and pressure. By the end of the two weeks, they fit easily into the current tray and are ready for the next tray.
Some patients might require more than 30 trays, depending on the severity of their misalignment. Similarly, some patients might need to wear a set of trays for longer than two weeks, especially if they have to remove the trays frequently. Trays can be removed for eating, but are typically left in for most of the day to be effective and efficient.
Invisalign v. Traditional Braces
Most patients prefer Invisalign over traditional braces. They are more convenient, less noticeable, and removable for eating. Patients must remember to wear them regularly to be effective.
However, in cases of more severe gaps in the smile, braces might be needed instead of Invisalign. Similarly, in the event of an overbite or underbite, a patient might need braces to make the correction. Your dentist will be able to tell you more about which approach is ideal for you.
