Invisalign Clear Aligners
If you’re living with a crooked, gapped, or overcrowded smile, you know how challenging it can be. Along with impacting the way you look and feel, a crooked smile can make eating, speaking, and practicing good oral hygiene uncomfortable. Fortunately, you don’t have to suffer with the discomfort and embarrassment of an imperfect smile forever. Invisalign dentist, Dr. Seto and his experienced dental team can help you achieve a healthier smile quickly, affordably, and, best of all, discreetly with the help of Invisalign aligners. Here’s what you should know about how Invisalign could improve your smile before scheduling your free consultation.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a form of orthodontic treatment that uses clear aligner trays that are made from BPA-free plastic to gradually shift a person’s teeth into the desired location a little at a time. These clear aligners are custom-made to fit a person’s mouth perfectly, so they won’t ever shift or fall out. Invisalign treatment is effective at improving the health and appearance of a person’s smile for around the same price as traditional braces, but often requires less treatment time. Along with being effective, fast, affordable, Invisalign offers a number of benefits, including:
- Convenient: Invisalign Clear Aligners require fewer trips to the dentist than braces.
- Comfortable: There’s no need to make changes to your diet when wearing Invisalign. Simply remove your Invisalign aligners any time to eat, drink, and brush your teeth.
- Discreet: Invisalign is virtually invisible, so no one will know you are wearing them.
- Healthy: When your teeth are straight and aligned properly, maintaining good oral and overall health is easier.
- Confidence: Invisalign can improve your self-esteem by helping you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
What Kinds of Conditions Can Clear Aligners Treat?
Straight teeth don’t only look beautiful, they are easier to clean and care for, making them less likely to develop dental diseases, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Because of this, undergoing clear aligner treatment is as much a preventative dental measure as it is cosmetic. Like traditional metal braces, Invisalign can effectively treat many common dental concerns, including:
- Gapped teeth
Dr. Seto can determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign during your initial consultation. In order for clear aligner braces to work properly, it’s important for a person to have:
- Healthy teeth and gums
- A fully-developed mouth
- All permanent teeth
In most cases, Invisalign is a better option for adults than children or young teenagers whose mouths are still developing and may not be responsible enough to manage a removable orthodontic appliance.
How Long Does It Take Invisalign to Work?
Your orthodontic treatment plan will depend on the specific needs of your mouth. Most people will complete the Invisalign treatment in as little as 12-18 months. To ensure that your treatment plan is as quick and effective as possible, be sure to wear your invisible aligners at least 22 hours a day or as directed by Dr. Seto. Failing to wear your clear aligners as directed or not practicing good oral hygiene may result in extended treatment times.
