The Effectiveness of Invisalign Aligners
Invisalign is a clear, removable teeth alignment solution similar to traditional braces in many ways. However, unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible when worn and can be taken out for eating, drinking, and cleaning your teeth. This means that Invisalign patients can smile with confidence during important events without the worry of being embarrassed by their smiles.
At Las Vegas Braces, the Invisalign process begins with a consultation with one of our dentists to determine if patients are good candidates for Invisalign treatment. Once patients have decided to proceed with the Invisalign treatment, they will be provided with a series of custom aligners that they must wear for at least 22 hours daily. Each aligner is slightly different to move the patient’s teeth into their ideal positions gradually. Patients can expect to visit the dentist periodically throughout their Invisalign treatment for progress evaluation and to receive their next set of aligners.
How Does Invisalign Work?
It’s important to remember how these clear, plastic aligner trays fit over the teeth. Aligners apply a controlled amount of force to the teeth in a specific direction. That movement makes the aligners effective at moving the teeth and correcting their positioning.
The aligners exert consistent force on the teeth, which results in minimal discomfort. You might find that your teeth are more comfortable after wearing the aligners than when they’re not. This is because the teeth can be slightly tender at the beginning of treatment. With time, this discomfort should lessen.
Another reason patients report reduced discomfort is because of the smooth plastic surface of the aligners. Unlike braces with brackets and wires that can scratch or poke the inside of the mouth, the plastic surface of Invisalign aligners glides smoothly along the teeth and doesn’t cause any irritation to soft tissues.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Many patients enjoy the numerous benefits of having straighter teeth with Invisalign treatment. Unlike traditional metal braces, the Invisalign system has no wires or brackets. As a result, you can brush and floss normally and eat all the foods you love without any dietary restrictions. You can also remove your aligners for special events with ease. Your smile will look beautiful throughout your treatment!
In addition, some people find they are less self-conscious about their appearance during treatment. Since they can remove their aligners, you don’t need to worry about the aesthetic appearance of your straightening system when you’re out in public. You can even remove the clear aligners when you speak or laugh so that your realigning treatment doesn’t interfere with critical moments of your day.
