Tell Me More About Invisalign Aligners
Invisalign aligners resemble the clear plastic application trays used for teeth whitening. Aligners, however, fit much more snuggly, although they are not uncomfortable. In fact, because the aligners are made of smooth, BPA-free plastic, there’s virtually no risk of gum or cheek irritation that may occur with metal brackets or wires that rub.
Advantages of Invisalign
Discretion is not the only characteristic going for Invisalign aligners. You can remove your clear braces, too. Whenever you want to have breakfast, lunch, dinner or a midnight snack, all you have to do is take out your aligners and enjoy! No foods are off-limits with Invisalign; people wearing traditional metal braces must eliminate certain foods—hard pretzels, carrot sticks, chewy candy, and bubble gum—that could potentially dislodge a bracket or wire.
Furthermore, you’ll be able to keep your teeth and gums cleaner because your braces are removable. With brackets and wires in the way, brushing and flossing can be something of a challenge. But all you do with Invisalign is remove your clear braces and brush and floss as usual. Being able to maintain your normal hygiene routine goes a long toward preventing tooth decay and gum disease while you’re having orthodontic treatment.
My Invisalign Aligners
When you come to Montgomery cosmetic dentist Dr. Iverson for Invisalign evaluation, he will initially examine your teeth and gums. A healthy mouth is essential before you can begin to wear aligners. Then, he will create a treatment plan based on information gathered from digital x-rays, impressions and photographs of your teeth. This plan will guide the creation of your customized aligners at the Invisalign lab.
The aligners arrive in the office ready to wear and arranged in sequential order. All you have to do is wear the first pair in each set for two weeks and continue moving through the series. Additional sets will be dispensed when you come for your periodic progress checks.
Because everyone’s needs are different, treatment times differ, as well. However, most people finish wearing their Invisalign aligners in 12 to 24 months.
