Are you one of those people who are not satisfied with the appearance of your smile? One of ways to attain a better smile is by straightening your teeth and one of the popular orthodontic methods for adults to straighten their teeth is through Invisalign aligners.
Is Invisalign treatment the right solution for you?
Invisalign will treat almost all of the common orthodontic issues as mentioned below.
When there is lack of room within the jaw for your teeth to fit in normally it leads to overly crowded teeth. When left untreated it can increase the risk of gum disease.
When the upper and lower jaws are misaligned, crossbite can occur. It can cause your upper teeth to bite on your lower teeth outside the spaces that are meant for a bite to occur. This issue could cause gum disease in addition to bone loss.
Widely spaced teeth
This is a problem that results when there is extra space between the teeth. This could be the result of abnormal growth in the jawbone, small sized teeth, missing teeth or even genetics. This dental irregularity could lead to periodontal disease which includes gingivitis and if left untreated it could result in tooth loss.
Now, none of the above, left untreated, makes for a beautiful smile.
How can Invisalign clear aligners help?
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign clear aligners are made using plastic material which makes them virtually invisible. Similar to teeth whitening trays in appearance, Invisalign aligners are thinner but with tougher trays. They are also removable because aligners are worn over your teeth and can be removed easily. Aligners will be replaced with a new tray once every two weeks in order to help your teeth move to its original position.
You may have to go through this process a number of times before your teeth are straightened properly. However, this depends on the individual as some patients may need as few as ten trays, while others may need up to 30 trays. On average, teeth straightening will take between 12-18 months.

– The aligners are not noticeable, but the results are! The course of the treatment will offer quicker and more effective results than any other teeth straightening alternative.
