Do you dread having to wear braces? For some people, it is a nightmare, a great humiliation.
However, there is great news! Dentistry has really improved their methods over the years and now there is a better solution to straighten your teeth inconspicuously.
Invisalign has been used in over a million cases in the last 20 years to straighten teeth without anyone every knowing.
What is an Invisalign?
Invisalign is a series of plastic transparent retainers that are designed to specifically align to your teeth to shift everything into the right place.
The Benefits of Wearing a Invisalign
Besides having straighter teeth while not having to wear braces, and the Invisalign being practically invisible, there are many other advantages to look forward to using this treatment.
Unlike braces, Invisalign does not cause any damage or permanent scarring of the enamel, and they also don’t shorten the roots or your teeth. They are significantly more comfortable than traditional braces, and give you the satisfaction of removing them to drink, eat, floss, and properly clean your teeth, so they won’t get in your way.
This solution is a great alternative as you won’t have to worry about avoiding certain foods, having food get caught in your braces, even having difficulties eating or any discomfort from wires, and you can look forward to faster treatment times.
With Great Smile Comes Great Responsibility
Here are some tips to keep in mind when taking out your Invisalign.
- The aligners only work if they are actually on your teeth, which means, even though you can remove them at any given time, you still need to wear them for at least 22 hours per a day to get your beautiful straight teeth.
- The more you wear and take care of your Invisalign the faster you can get your perfect smile!
- Even after you have achieved straighter teeth it is important to wear it until your teeth have fully settled in otherwise you may risk an orthodontic relapse which will slowly shift your teeth back to their original places.
Hang in there and wear your Invisalign to avoid wasting all that time and energy you invested in maintaining your teeth! If you have questions on how long you should keep wearing your aligner or any other concerns then please consult a dentist.
