Invisalign is a wonderful alternative to the classic metal wire and bracket braces. It is a virtually clear tooth alignment system that fits perfectly in the client’s mouth without anyone seeing it. It provides a more comfortable way of getting a person’s teeth into place. Every day more people are converting to this new innovative way of straightening their teeth. Invisalign is quite possibly the best creation of the century.
How Invisalign Works
Getting set up for Invisalign works the same way as getting set up for braces. The dentist will take full X-rays to determine if the client qualifies for the product. Invisalign is not for complex cases, so the dentist will need to review the structure of the patient’s mouth and the way he thinks the teeth will shift. They are great for overbites, under bites, and gapped teeth. Severely complex cases will still have to use traditional braces.
If the patient qualifies for Invisalign, the dentist will mold the first set of plastic aligners around his or her teeth. The individual will wear the aligners 22-24 hours today, but he or she will have the option to remove them when it is time to eat and brush the teeth. Every two weeks the patient will come in to change into a new set of aligners. After about a year of treatment, he or she will have that desirable straight smile.
There are so many benefits to choosing Invisalign over traditional braces. One benefit is that they are removable. Another benefit of using Invisalign is that they are completely comfortable unlike metal braces. Additionally, Invisalign is virtually invisible. Teens who use this product do not have to be self-conscious about how they look to their peers. No one will know they are using this product unless they tell.
The average cost for Invisalign treatment is $5,000 which is a little less expensive than traditional braces. Going this route will definitely save a person money and embarrassment.
