Invisalign is a popular orthodontic treatment among adults who have malocclusion, or misalignment of the teeth. Malocclusion can impair function and speech, and can lead to TMJ disorder, affecting your dental wellbeing and self-esteem. The Invisalign system replaces the traditional orthodontic treatments by correcting malocclusions in a discreet and comfortable way.
How Invisalign Works?
Invisalign involves a series of virtually invisible aligners that gently shift the teeth into their new, ideal position. Because they are invisible, you will feel confident speaking or in professional and social gatherings. The trays are removable, so you can eat and brush your teeth without the hassle. This also means that you don’t need to skip your favourite foods and you can still improve your dental hygiene habits during the course of treatment.
Your dentist will create a custom-designed program that will address your specific orthodontic issue. The program will consist of a full set of clear aligners made just for you. Your dentist will provide you with a digital presentation of the outcome you can expect following the treatment.
Once you have your Invisalign mouthpieces, you need to wear them for at least 22 hours a day. You can remove them every time you eat and brush or floss your teeth. Then, you will wear the next mouthpiece in series every two weeks.
Regular dental check-ups are necessary for Invisalign. Every six weeks, you will visit your dentist to monitor the progress. At the end of the treatment, you will see a straighter and more beautiful smile.
