Want to see your teeth perfectly aligned but are not very keen on braces? There is another alternative to align your teeth not as noticeable as the brackets. This new technology is called Invisalign.
What is this treatment about?
It is a computerized treatment using transparent retainers. These aligners must be changed every certain time according to the dentist’s instructions to achieve the desired position for the teeth and each time be closer to the perfect smile.
What are the benefits of using Invisalign?
Invisalign is transparent, no one will notice that you are in a treatment to align your teeth.
The Invisalign aligners can be placed and removed whenever you need. and you can eat and drink anything you want anytime. You will not have problems brushing or flossing your teeth contributing to your oral hygiene.
According to the comments of some patients this type of treatment hurts less and is more comfortable than a traditional orthodontic treatment as it does not require the use of wires that may irritate your mouth. This treatment does not require so much supervision with the dentist so you will have more time to do the things you like and enjoy. You can see the computerized result before using the first aligner.
What are the steps?
It is necessary to take some photos, x-rays and take a scan/dental impression to get all the information needed to know how many retainers are required and for how long.
The dentist will show you the information of what the result will be. And with the information collected, the retainers can be developed.
The retainers must be used every day for 1-2 weeks and must be changed between 6-8 weeks to assess the progress and receive a new series of aligners.
