How Invisalign Can Transform Your Smile and Boost Your Confidence.

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear aligners fitted to an individual’s teeth to achieve straighter teeth. They are a popular less painful alternative to metal braces and are becoming more popular.

How to get invisalign
The process of getting Invisalign is easy and straightforward but unfortunately not everyone is suitable to get the Invisalign treatment. You will need to book an initial consultation with your dentist who will take X-rays and digital scans to examine your teeth and determine if you are a suitable candidate to get Invisalign.

After determining that you are fit to get Invisalign, your dentist will take a 3D scan of your teeth to formulate a customised treatment plan to straighten your teeth. This information will then be sent to a lab that will help to create your custom invisalign aligners for you. Once your aligners have been made, pick them up from your dentist and you’re ready to start your Invisalign journey!

The invisalign journey
When you pick up your first pair of aligners, your dentist will go through the steps of how to put them on and take them off correctly.

After that, you will only need to schedule check-ins with your dentist every 6 to 8 weeks so that your progress can be checked and you can be given your new batch of aligners.

Common Questions
How long will I have to wear Invisalign aligners?

Invisalign aligners are 2 times faster than traditional metal braces but as aligners apply steady pressure over time to align your teeth, the completion times for Invisalign treatments can vary greatly depending on the complexity and alignment of your teeth. Some treatments can be completed as fast as 4 months but typically patients can notice results after 12 to 18 months.

Why get Invisalign?
In addition to being virtually invisible, Invisalign aligners are easy to clean and can be removed when you eat or brush your teeth which makes it much more convenient and flexible than traditional braces where food can get stuck between the metal aligners, increasing the chance of oral infections.

Finally, perhaps the biggest benefit that Invisalign aligners is the boost it can give to your self-esteem. Your teeth are one of the first and last things you look at everyday, and can significantly affect your confidence in your daily life if you don’t like the way they look. Knowing that you have great teeth can transform the way you smile by helping you feel more confident when you interact with others. Furthermore, Invisalign also improves your oral health and hygiene and offers the added benefit of helping to hide your dental treatment for patients who may not want others to know that they are getting their teeth fixed.

Final thoughts
Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional braces that offers a faster, more convenient and pain-free treatment to achieve straight teeth that will help you feel more confident in your smile. They are especially beneficial for patients who have a busy lifestyle and want the convenience of being able to take them on and off.
