Do your teeth come together perfectly when you close your jaw or does your upper or lower teeth protrude? Do you have gaps between your teeth, have crooked teeth or overlapping? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, you may need orthodontic treatment to correct your smile.
The goal of orthodontic dental procedures is to bring the teeth and jaw into better alignment with one another, eliminating bite problems, reducing the likelihood of oral health issues, and giving you a more attractive smile.
Invisalign is an innovative form of orthodontic treatment that uses clear, plastic aligners to reposition the teeth. It does this by exerting gentle, consistent force onto them that causes them to move. This happens so gradually that it is difficult to see it happening until the teeth reach their new, desired position.
The Invisalign treatment program is planned specifically for each individual patient. This is done using special mapping technology that uses scanned images of your teeth and determines how they would need to move in order to improve their alignment. This mapping journey is then converted into a series of stages of movement, with an aligner designed and created for each stage. For the treatment to be successful, patients must commit to wearing their aligners exactly as directed, not only for the recommended 22 hours each day but also in the right order. Any discrepancies in the way that Invisalign aligners are worn can delay the treatment program or cause it to fail.
Invisalign can be successfully used to treat a wide variety of different orthodontic problems including teeth that are crooked, twisted, overlapping or widely spaced, overbites, underbites and, crossbites.
There are a variety of reasons why more patients than ever are turning to Invisalign orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign aligners are created with a soft material that ensures patients can benefit from superior comfort for the duration of their treatment program without any compromise on its efficiency.
Anything particularly hard, sticky or chewy can become stuck to or in the brace and can cause damage to the device. However, Invisalign aligners can and should be removed for eating, meaning that you can enjoy the foods of your choice without worrying about your teeth.
Invisalign aligners are made from clear plastic which makes them virtually transparent when in place over your teeth. This means you can have greater confidence in your teeth and smile throughout your treatment.
Fortunately, Invisalign aligners can be removed to clean both the aligners themselves and your teeth. This means you can brush and floss as usual, enabling you to enjoy better oral health.
