About Invisalign Clear Aligners
These days, people are finding new ways to straighten their teeth. Straight teeth can give you more confidence and the confidence to smile more. Crooked or misaligned teeth can affect the way you relate to others and can make you feel uncomfortable in professional or relational settings. A number of people don’t want to wear traditional braces, so they are turning to aligner systems to get the smile they want. Invisalign has become a popular option, and Suburban Essex Dental offers a variety of teeth straightening methods, including Invisalign. If you’re interested in getting these invisible braces, the dental professionals at Suburban Essex Dental are here to help.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a teeth straightening system that fits over your teeth. The Invisalign clear aligners are clear, so it’s hard to detect that you’re wearing braces. The aligners are also more comfortable than traditional braces, and won’t cause gum or teeth pain. You’ll wear a series of clear aligners or retainers throughout your treatment. As your teeth straighten and the set of aligners you’re wearing are no longer effective, you’ll change the aligners. The new set will fit snugly on your teeth to continue the work of straightening your teeth. You’ll continue changing your Invisalign retainers until your teeth are completely straight. Normally, you’ll need to change the aligners every couple of weeks. The length of time you’ll use Invisalign will vary based on your dental needs. This makes your treatment customized and will help you achieve the exact smile you want.
Who Is Invisalign Best For?
- A teenager or active adult with a busy schedule. There is more care needed for traditional braces
- If it’s uncomfortable or impractical for you to wear headgear every night
- If you don’t have much time for orthodontic visits
- This solution is also best for people who don’t like the look of conventional braces. Invisalign clear aligners are invisible
This teeth straightening method usually costs less than traditional braces and allows you to properly brush and floss your teeth since braces can get in the way of this process. You’ll only have to go to the dentist every four to six weeks. And, you can remove the braces at any time, which means you can eat and drink comfortably. This also means you won’t have to restrict your diet because of your braces. The best part is that Invisalign will straighten your teeth the same way that braces will, but the option is much more convenient.
