Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that is designed to provide exceptional results with less inconvenience than traditional metal braces. Millions of people have already used Invisalign to improve their smiles and achieve better oral health.
Patients use Invisalign for many reasons including straightening teeth, eliminating spacing issues, and correcting problems with bite. Invisalign treatment uses clear aligners that are worn over the teeth. About every two weeks, the patient will replace their current aligner with the next in the series. A new Invisalign aligner will feel tight when it is first applied, but it should gradually loosen after a few days. This is a positive sign, as it means the teeth are properly moving. This process will continue until the teeth reach the desired position.
The key to success when using Invisalign is to wear your aligner a minimum of 20 to 22 hours per day. The only time the patient should remove the aligner is when they are eating, drinking, brushing or flossing.
Invisalign offers many advantages. Since the aligners can be removed, a patient will not need to make any changes to their diet or their regular oral care practices when using Invisalign. With no metal wires or brackets, Invisalign treatment is more comfortable and safer than traditional braces. Of course, many patients consider the biggest advantage to be the fact that the aligners are virtually invisible to others!
