Having a perfect set of teeth is something many people today desire. Unfortunately, rarely are we born or rather grow up with a perfect set of pearly whites. The beautiful smiles you see in media are most likely the result of treatments that help to correct the alignment and beautify teeth. The problem of having teeth that are not aligned properly can be something as minor as a cosmetic issue or be a big oral problem that has to be treated professionally. When it comes to correcting teeth, people turn to orthodontists who offer treatments that can help give people a better smile.
Probably the most common thing that you would encounter when it comes to orthodontics would be braces. You have probably seen a number of people especially kids who are wearing braces to put their teeth into proper alignment. Braces are the traditional option for people who want to get their teeth properly aligned but the idea of wearing metal brackets and a wire can turn people off. Fortunately, braces aren’t the only option out there for correcting teeth alignment. One in particular that has become popular among people is Invisalign.
Invisalign is a more refined way of correcting teeth alignment as it offers a treatment that has addressed certain issues that people have with braces. Invisalign is made of a clear material so unlike braces, the aligners are practically invisible allowing you respite from the embarrassment of wearing something over your teeth. What’s more is Invisalign aligners are custom fit to you so it is very comfortable for the wearer and you can even remove it when you are going to eat. This means you are not restricted as to what you can eat and eating will be a much more comfortable experience. So what is it like getting the Invisalign treatment?
First, you have to visit an orthodontist in order to get a consultation about the issue you would like to address. Through the consultation you will be able to learn more about how you can be treated and also how much you will be investing in the treatment.
Once you have gone through with the consultation about the Invisalign treatment and have decided to push through, a treatment plan will be made for you. The orthodontist will have to do some imaging work on your teeth so that he can get a clear picture about what he is working with and he can further customize the treatment and the aligners for you.
When the aligners are made for you, you will have to wear this throughout your day only removing it when you are going to eat or brush your teeth. In any circumstance where you want to remove it for a short period of time, you may such as when you are going to be speaking in front and you want to be more comfortable.
Over the course of the treatment, you will be changing aligners at a certain interval. The shape of the Invisalign aligners change slowly pushing your teeth in the right direction eventually giving you perfectly aligned teeth.
