Invisalign Before and After
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a desirable alternative to traditional metal braces for straightening teeth. When you choose to use Invisalign, a series of progressive aligners are designed to shape your smile. These smooth and comfortable aligners place a small amount of tension on your teeth, gradually pulling them into the desired position over time. Each aligner in a series gradually progresses to your ideal smile and tooth position.
What Can I Expect When Starting Invisalign?
The first step in straightening your teeth is a consultation with Dr. Robert Liu. At this visit, our office will perform an examination and take dental x-rays to assess the current health and alignment of your teeth. Dr. Liu will then determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign and the expected results of this treatment. If Dr. Liu determines you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign, he will write a prescription which is sent to Align Technology, Inc. Clear aligners will then be individually crafted to mold and move your teeth. Once your aligners are created, our office will confirm they fit your mouth correctly and comfortably and go over a simple treatment process to achieve the desired results.
Are you a Good Candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign is best used to treat mild to moderate alignment issues. If your teeth are severely misaligned, if you have one tooth that significantly overlaps another, or if you have serious bite problems, Dr. Liu may suggest metal braces or different cosmetic dentistry procedures to aid in the correction. Dr. Liu can help you address any dental concerns that prevent you from benefiting from Invisalign and assist you in developing an alternative aesthetic dentistry plan to achieve your desired smile.
Benefits to Choosing Clear Aligners Over Metal Braces
For many years, metal braces were the single option to straightening teeth. Invisalign is a new alternative with many benefits to consider.
Comfort and Discretion of Invisalign
Many patients would love to straighten their teeth, but are uncomfortable with the idea of bulky metal braces. The brackets, wires, and daily discomfort scares off many patients for fear of embarrassment.
Invisalign allows for a more discrete and comfortable alternative. Patients who use Invisalign can slip on the clear aligner and smile and talk comfortably. The transparent aligners are virtually unnoticeable and easy to forget. Some people feel a slight pressure on their teeth, this is normal and means the teeth are being realigned.
Ease of Cleaning and Maintenance of Invisalign
Metal braces require a lot of maintenance and cleaning. Flossing and cleaning in between brackets is very important and tedious. There is also the constant fear of food being stuck in your braces while out in public. Invisalign is quick to remove which makes eating, brushing, and flossing less of a burden. You can place your aligners back in your mouth once you are finished eating or brushing. These aligners reduce the risk of having food trapped behind wires and brackets which allows for a healthier smile.
Is Invisalign a Good Investment?
Invisalign still requires a significant amount of time and resources to be an effective alternative to traditional metal braces. Can these clear aligners make a significant impact to be worth their investment?
Improved Appearance with Invisalign
Invisalign straightening treatments will improve the overall appearance of your smile. Even minor adjustments can affect the alignment of your teeth. Straightening your smile can have a tremendous impact on your self-esteem and comfort.
Straighter teeth are healthier teeth! Teeth that are not correctly aligned have a greater chance of trapping food and plaque in hard to clean spaces. When teeth are straightened, they are easier to brush and floss, reducing the buildup of harmful bacteria.
