Haven’t we all heard the old saying ’ A beautiful smile is the window to the soul’. Smile releases the feel good hormones coupled with unmatched confidence and pride. Whether you have a sparkling smile or that which needs a transformation, a smile can certainly light up the otherwise ordinary features.
Today, putting up with a not so pretty smile is a thing of the past. Thanks to modern dentistry, you can now make a variety of changes to your teeth including colour, structure, size, shape, etc. Invisalign clear aligners are one such revolutionary orthodontic advancement that has gained immense popularity in recent times. With Invisalign, you don’t have to feel turned off with a mouth of metal look that braces give you. The hard to spot Invisalign does not use brackets or wires. With clear, removable aligner trays you can straighten your teeth or correct your bite.
The Invisalign process
Your treatment duration with Invisalign is entirely based on how severe the condition of your teeth is. In most cases, it could range anywhere between 10 months to 24 months to get a complete set of dazzling teeth. Your aligners need to be switched once in 10-14 days as part of the treatment process. Your orthodontist will take 3D impressions of your teeth and work out a customised treatment plan for you. The little pockets on the aligner neatly fit each tooth and pushes it back into the right place. Gradually your teeth move and your smile gets straightened. The invisible aligners are removable. However, they have to remain in your mouth for not less than 22 hours a day for optimal results.
Is Invisalign right for you?
Invisalign can treat gapped or crowded teeth, overbite, underbite and crossbite successfully.
If you are a teenager or a young adult, Invisalign can fix your teeth well as you will be able to embrace the change readily.
It is essential to have a good level of commitment while opting for Invisalign treatment as these aligners need to be worn for the most part of the day.
