Why Visit a Dental Office That Offers Invisalign Clear Braces Treatment?
Invisalign® clear braces are a discreet way to straighten teeth that many people use nowadays. These oral appliances are rigid plastic trays that gradually push the wearer's teeth towards a better alignment. At the start of the treatment, the patient gets a number of aligner trays. Each tray is worn for two weeks before being switched out with another that pushes the person's teeth closer to the target position.
The importance of seeing a dentist who offers Invisalign® clear braces
Most dental offices offer metal braces, but these devices can mar the appearance of the patient's smile while they work. Metal braces use brackets and wires to push the patient's teeth to the desired position. The appliance is permanently fixed in place for the duration of the treatment so it gets in the way of meals and cleaning the mouth.
A few decades ago, people who needed teeth straightening had no choice but to get traditional metal braces. However, Invisalign® clear braces were developed at the turn of the new millennium and have transformed how dentists and their patients look at teeth straightening. This has led to an increasing number of people getting the orthodontic treatments they need instead of putting them off as was once the norm.
It is no longer necessary to have to deal with a fixed oral appliance that is highly visible like braces when straightening teeth. Thanks to Invisalign®, teeth straightening treatments can now be done discreetly. These are some of the benefits patients who opt for clear braces get to enjoy:
- Discreet treatment: Invisalign® aligners are almost impossible to notice when worn. This eliminates the teasing or bullying that sometimes occurs when people have metal braces.
- Efficient treatment: Invisalign® clear braces often lead to shorter treatment times. Aligner trays apply more precise forces on the patient's teeth, allowing them to shift together. Traditional braces move each tooth individually and the forces on each tooth are not as precise.
- Increased comfort: The metal brackets and wires that come with metal braces can irritate the soft tissues in the mouth. Invisalign® aligners are made out of smooth plastics that are less likely to lead to cuts in the mouth.
- Increased convenience: Invisalign® clear aligners can be easily removed. Patients will appreciate that when it is time to eat or to clean the mouth. People with metal braces often have to restrict the foods they eat or they find themselves spending half an hour cleaning their braces.
What to expect when visiting an Invisalign® dentist
The process of getting clear braces starts with a consultation with a dentist. Once the patient is approved, digital images of their teeth are taken and a 3D model is created. A mold can also be used to make an impression. The data is sent to a lab that makes aligner trays. The clear braces will be ready in two weeks and the patient starts their treatment.
