Invisalign is a popular method for achieving a straighter smile among patients and dentists alike. If you’ve been wondering what all the fuss is about, you’ve come to the right place! Today, we briefly go over what you should know about Invisalign clear aligner therapy to help you decide if it’s the right option for you.
INVISALIGN MINIMALLY DISRUPTS YOUR APPEARANCE
Many people are reluctant to straighten their teeth because they don’t want the hassle and annoyance of bulky wires and brackets. Does this worry you? Unlike traditional braces, the Invisalign process utilizes a series of thin, clear aligners that gradually shift your teeth into their optimal placement. The aligners are virtually invisible, so you can still feel confident showing off your smile while inconspicuously working to straighten it!
Depending on your level of misalignment, you may need special attachments bonded to your teeth to increase the aligner’s power. These little bumps serve as anchors to keep the aligners snugly against your teeth. While they are slightly more noticeable than the aligners alone, they are small and tooth-colored.
INVISALIGN EFFICIENTLY DELIVERS RESULTS
Sometimes patients put off orthodontic treatment because they believe it will take several years to have any effect. While the length of time varies according to each individual patient, Invisalign treatment normally takes between 12 and 18 months to complete when you wear your Invisalign aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours each day as recommended. During your consultation with Dr. Marbell, he’ll provide you with a time estimate based on your unique needs.
INVISALIGN HAS LESS DIETARY RESTRICTIONS THAN BRACES
Certain foods like nuts, popcorn, and many others can bend or otherwise damage braces’ wires. Because Invisalign aligners are removed when you eat and drink anything other than water, they don’t have the same dietary restrictions as braces. However, snacking during the day will mean more regular brushing, flossing, and cleaning of your aligners. So although you can eat as normal after taking your aligners out, you still need to keep your teeth and trays clean.
