A great advantage of Invisalign is the simplicity of the whole procedure. There is no longer a need to go through an extensive and time-consuming procedure in order to achieve the smile you want. Invisalign is revolutionary because it aligns your teeth in a flexible and versatile manner.
To get a better understanding of how Invisalign is superior as a dental realignment system, the following are some more details on what the aligners are, how they work, as well as the benefits of them.
How Invisalign Works
The Invisalign braces are made by digitally scanning your teeth. A series of plastic molds are custom created to wear at different intervals throughout the treatment, each moving the teeth slowly to your desired end-point.
Practical Benefits of Invisalign
The aligners are virtually invisible unless observed closely. This is due to the material which is strong yet clear.
They are very versatile and can be worn throughout the day, except when one needs to eat. Generally, the Invisalign aligners can be worn for drinks and such, although it is better to take them off if the wearer is consuming hot drinks, as the temperature may affect the durability of the aligners. For food, simply take off the aligners and continue eating as usual. When it is time to apply them once again, make sure that the mouth is rinsed thoroughly, and that there is no food debris left.
They fit very well due to the custom molding which is done by our dentist for you. The fit provides much better alignment since there is more surface area through which the pressure is being applied, which results in better adjustment. The greater surface area also means that your entire natural smile moves easily.
Invisalign allows you to eat whatever you want. All one needs to do is take off the molds prior to eating. However, it is best to brush your teeth before inserting the molds, to ensure that no food debris remains that could trap bacteria.
Now that you know how Invisalign works, it’s time to see whether this is the right solution for you. Our dentist will help guide you by first carrying out a comprehensive exam of your whole mouth.
