Invisalign - Benefits of Clear Aligners
Invisalign | We see a lot of patients who feel uncomfortable about their smiles. Indeed, crooked, misaligned, and crowded teeth are a lot more frequent than people might realize. We appreciate that traditional braces can help resolve alignment issues and gaps. However, adults and older teenagers often feel uncomfortable at the thought of wearing metal braces.
Clear aligners from Invisalign are a game changer for those who are not satisfied with their smiles. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign promises an almost invisible and transparent solution that works hard to improve your teeth.
Who do we recommend Invisalign to?
At Burncoat Family Dental practice, we recommend the clear aligners to people who seek corrective braces. They do not require a difficult maintenance routine. Indeed, unlike braces that can trap food debris and need careful cleaning, Invisalign ensures at all times a smooth and clean appearance. You can also remove the aligners for eating and brushing your teeth.
Additionally, metal braces often require adjusting and tightening, and they can be uncomfortable and painful. On the other hand, Invisalign aligners can be easily changed regularly to adjust to your teeth without causing discomfort.
How do the clear aligners work?
Our experienced team can help you figure out whether Invisalign is the right solution for your teeth. Indeed, Invisalign is ideal for patients who need mild to moderate corrective alignment. Severe corrections are best suited for metal braces.
To avoid any disappointment, we arrange for consultations to guide you through your choice of braces. There may be other solutions that can tackle your problems more effectively than clear aligners. We will discuss these with you during the consultation if this is the case.
Invisalign’s technology can also help you visualize how your smile will be improved with the aligners. We are committed to assisting you in making an informed decision and presenting you with the different options for your smile. If you decide to pursue with Invisalign, our specialist dentist will take a scan of your mouth for the creation of your custom Invisalign set of aligners.
The Invisalign process
Depending on your teeth and how long you choose to wear the aligners every day, most patients obtain results within 6 to 18 months. The set of clear aligners is transparent and doesn’t interfere with your day to day routine.
We recommend brushing your teeth after each meal, and you can then re-insert the clear aligners onto clean teeth. It is essential to always clean your teeth before inserting Invisalign to prevent bacterial buildup.
We suggest monthly checkup appointments with your dentist. We can evaluate the progress during the appointment and take new scans if you need to use an updated set of aligners. We warn our patients against canceling or missing checkups. Indeed, to enjoy the full benefits of Invisalign, you need to frequently adjust the aligners to the current shape of your teeth.
