Invisalign is the best option for straightening crooked and crowded teeth that ruin your beautiful smile. Orthodontics treatment of braces was the traditional way of solving the problem. Invisalign is a preferred choice for adults and teens because they are practically invisible due to being clear. Invisalign aligners are clear aligners that are made up of transparent plastic to fit into the mouth. During the treatment we check the progress of the alignment of the teeth. An improper bite and crooked teeth may make you feel insecure about your smile or may make eating and chewing difficult. Additionally, an improper bite can cause your teeth to wear down unevenly.
Generally, Invisalign is nearly undetectable when being worn as the clear aligners fit over the teeth and use pressure to guide teeth into place. Invisalign is a good option for individuals with minimal work needed on their teeth. The removable design allows patients to keep their regular oral hygiene routine. Invisalign is also generally more cost-efficient and worn for less time, which is ideal for most lifestyles.
How is it applied in your teeth?
There are certain steps which are followed while applying Invisalign:
- A special type of gel that helps the attachment stick will be used in your teeth.
- After a few minutes, the gel will be removed and your teeth will be rinsed.
- A small brush will be used to apply a bonding agent, which helps secure the attachments to your teeth.
- A template aligner will be used in your teeth.
- Now the template aligner which now contains the attachment material will be put over your teeth. Afterwards gentle pressure will be applied to help the attachments properly adhere to your teeth
- Next, a special light dry and harden the attachment material.
- Finally, template aligner is removed along with any extra bonding agent or composite resin.
You may experience some pain when you first get the Invisalign attachments or when you switch to a new aligner. This is because of the pressure that your aligner places on your attachments, which helps reposition your teeth. Also, when you remove your aligner, it’s possible that new attachments may feel uncomfortable against the inside of your mouth. However, there is no need to worry as that pain goes away in a short period of time and you will have a beautiful smile in no time!
