Everyone strives to have that celebrity-grade smile, but not everyone wants the hardware required. Whether they’re braces or a retainer, a lot of methods for straightening smiles are visible and can potentially make a person less than comfortable.
It used to be an inevitability, but technological and practical advancements in dentistry have made available new orthodontic options for straightening a smile. At ISong Orthodontics we’re devoted to helping you get that perfect smile, so today we’re giving you a run-down on everything you need to know about Invisalign, one of the easiest, most low key ways to improve your teeth.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a set of clear plastic aligners that help adjust your teeth over time to give you the exact smile you want. All you have to do is go to your dentist and get a quick, precise scan that will even let you preview your future smile! Then your aligners are custom-made for you, and you can pick them up and start wearing them immediately. Every two weeks you switch sets, and over time your teeth adjust until you have exactly the smile you want most. Just remember to wear them for 20 to 22 hours each day to get the best results!
When Should I Use Invisalign?
Invisalign is a great option for anyone who needs small adjustments to their teeth. If your teeth don’t need to be rotated or moved vertically, Invisalign is all you need to get the perfect adjustments. They’re also a much better option for adults and or teenagers, for whom braces or a retainer could be uncomfortable. Also, braces aren’t advisable for anyone playing contact sports, giving Invisalign treatments another distinct advantage for our younger patients.
Are They Hard To Take Care Of?
Not at all! In fact, Invisalign is substantially easier to care for than braces, and just about as easy as taking care of a retainer with a much slimmer margin for error. All you have to remember to do is take them out before eating or drinking anything that isn’t water, as well as brushing your teeth after every meal. Other than that, you can live your life without any interruptions as Invisalign works on your smile for you.
In other words, Invisalign is a great option that can help you get the smile you want without any of the negative effects of braces or retainers. This treatment is definitely worth checking out if you want to adjust your teeth. Interested in getting that perfect smile for yourself?
