In order to straighten the crooked or crowded teeth, an innovative dental treatment like Invisalign is a good option. Invisalign is an excellent solution for teenagers and older adults who are self-conscious about their braces and who might feel like they are 'too old.' If dietary restrictions or oral hygiene seem challenging with braces, you don't have to face those challenges with the transparent aligner system.
How do Invisalign aligners work?
Just as the traditional braces, Invisalign, with its clear aligners, apply a gentle force to move the teeth instead of metal wires. The 3D images taken of your mouth set the base for the treatment. During the entire procedure, you will receive a series of aligner trays according to the scheduled intervals that move the teeth towards the desired position. You will feel less discomfort in the mouth and jaws and can also keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy.
What is the process of getting Invisalign?
In the beginning, a painless, radiation-free 3D imaging of the mouth is taken using a modern machine. At Bay Area Dental, our dentist uses these images to simulate the treatment plan. Before starting the process, the dentist in Oakland CA will show you the smile; you can acquire over the end of the treatment course.
We will review the images with you and send them to the dental lab, where the aligners are created. The Invisalign aligners are made from a particular plastic that is safe and durable. Once the aligners get ready, the dentist fits them on your teeth, makes all necessary adjustments, and gives tips to care for them. You can remove them while eating or drinking or for special occasions as well. You will have to visit the dentist, as per the scheduled intervals, to fit the next set of aligners until the treatment gets over.
How long does Invisalign take to give the desired result?
Invisalign treatment takes half the time of traditional braces, which is great news for those who hate wearing traditional braces to work or in their everyday lives. In just a few months after beginning treatment, you can notice a positive change. But you need to listen to your dentist and wear them enough for better and faster results.
