Quickly becoming more popular than metal braces, invisalign is a smart and unique way to straighten teeth without using braces through the use of aligners. In essence, aligners are virtually invisible removable devices that straighten teeth without anyone knowing they are being used. Best of all, those using invisalign can eat and drink normally with confidence. In addition, it is simple and easy to brush and floss normally to ensure healthy gums and teeth. With no wires, metal or brackets there is never any mouth abrasion or pain.
In the simplest of terms, invisalign is highly desirable because it is custom-made for comfort and never uses brackets or metal wires. All that is necessary is to follow your dental care provider instructions in detail using clear, removable and custom-made aligners at the appropriate time. Most importantly, aligners must be worn for a given amount of time each day to ensure that they work. This is a unique and convenient way to straighten teeth without braces in a virtually invisible fashion. An individual simply wears a set of aligners for about two weeks. The aligners are only removed to eat, drink, brush and floss as necessary.
Amazingly, the patient’s teeth will gradually move a little each week. The total treatment with regard to invisalign usually takes about 6 to 15 months with the average number of aligners being 12 to about 30 in total. The patient usually visits their dental care provider about once every 6 to 8 weeks to receive a new set of aligners. Truthfully, nothing could be easier and more convenient when it comes to straightening teeth for a more attractive and beautiful smile. With so much to offer it is clear to see why invisalign is becoming one of the top choices for straightening teeth with a minimal amount of inconvenience.
