How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign is designed to help straighten teeth and achieve a beautiful and healthy smile. Yet it is different from traditional braces in several notable ways. A key difference is that Invisalign uses a series of transparent aligners, to help gradually move your teeth into their correct positions. Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic, making them almost invisible throughout your treatment.
During your treatment, you will have to go through a series of 18 to 30 different aligners — depending on the severity of your case. Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks and then replaced by the next aligner in the series, until the recommended realignment is achieved. Invisalign aligners have to be worn at least 22 hours per day for effective treatment.
Invisalign aligners are easily removed, allowing for comfort and confidence while eating as well as improved dental hygiene, compared with fixed braces. Patients who wear metal braces often find it difficult to brush and floss their teeth properly, causing plaque to build up during their treatment.Invisalign therefore helps you keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy throughout your treatment.
Are you a candidate for Invisalign?
Generally, Invisalign can fix a wide range of dental issues including overbites, underbites, as well as other alignment-related issues. That said, a consultation with your dentist in Weybridge is the best way to determine if Invisalign is the right option for you.
