We all crave for a beautiful smile! There are many people who feel uncomfortable with crooked or crowded teeth. One of the most demanding treatments for the orthodontic issues is to put on braces, but with the rising growth in the need for teeth straightening, there is yet another option available called Invisalign.
Aligners are a clear set of strong-fitted tailored hard plastic mouthpieces that slip over the teeth. It can be applied to patients who have mild to moderate crowded teeth or have minor spacing issues. It can also align your bite. Individuals with minor overbite, crossbite, or underbite issues can get their Invisalign. Since they are tight fit, it’s apt for adults or teens.
Invisalign is the greatest producer of clear aligners, but it’s not the only brand. Well, clear or "invisible" aligners aren't for everybody. Your orthodontist or dentist will examine you and decide what’s appropriate for you.
How will your dentist treat you in McMurray, PA?
In McMurray, PA, once a dentist or orthodontist decides if you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign treatment, they'll sketch a plan for moving your teeth. Then the dental team will work to complete a series of 3D digital impressions. These impressions are then sent to the Invisalign laboratories where an accurate set of trays will be built that will assist the patients through the process of restoring their smiles.
This is done by wearing the trays for a minimum 20 hours each day. The trays can easily be taken out, which lets patients continue their dental hygienic practices like flossing and brushing and even eating. The number of trays in individuals’ series may differ as it is based on how serious your misalignment is. You'll get a new aligner after each few weeks to keep on moving your teeth until it reaches the desired position.
BENEFITS OF INVISALIGN
- Easily removable trays to straighten the teeth
- You get a camera-ready smile without having to hide behind metal devices
- As trays are removable, hence patients find comfort in maintaining their oral hygiene.
How much do Invisible Aligners cost?
