Invisalign: Convenience and Comfort
Facts About Invisalign
The aligners are carefully custom-made to suit your needs. Our dentist at Neibauer Dental Care will guide you through the process of making your aligners and answer any questions you may have during the initial appointment. Invisalign, however, is virtually invisible. Made of a clear material, it easily blends in with your natural teeth and doesn’t stand out the way conventional braces do, making them an ideal choice for those who want a low-profile treatment.
Conventional metal braces can often trap food in its brackets or hard to reach places in the mouth, resulting in patients having to perform a more careful oral cleaning during treatment. Invisalign is built to be removable, which makes it easier for patients to enjoy certain foods or drinks as they can easily remove the aligners before eating hard candy or drinking coffee.
Unlike conventional braces, you can also remove Invisalign aligners on a special occasion or while taking pictures. Even when you do wear the aligners, they are clear, making them less noticeable than metal braces. Just make sure to reinsert the aligners back in place as it can take longer to align teeth if they are constantly being removed.
The clear and smooth material makes it a comfortable choice. With no metal rubbing against your inner cheeks or lips, the feeling is very different than wearing conventional metal braces.
Duration of Treatment
Treatment time varies from patient to patient and depends on the severity of their misalignment. Talk to our dentist to find out how long this process will take in your specific case.
Invisalign aligners require maintenance just like other braces do. Whenever you take off the aligners, make sure you brush them properly under warm water before putting them on again. This prevents and removes any residual bacteria.
Many who have used Invisalign have reported great results in the alignment of their teeth. It is a method that has proven efficient and convenient, which has increased its popularity among those looking for a straight smile.
Invisalign aligners are made from BPA-free material, so you won't have to worry about the release of dangerous toxins during treatment.
The developments in the world of cosmetic dentistry have allowed oral health professionals to develop useful solutions to many dental problems, including the readjustment of twisted teeth and a less-than-ideal smile. Today, there are many dental procedures and treatments, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Some procedures and treatments have proven so valuable and effective that they have been adopted across the world.
