Many adults need orthodontic treatment to treat a misaligned smile. But many adults fear the potential appearance of orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is a way to treat a crooked smile in a discreet, nearly invisible manner. Invisalign is a patented system of clear acrylic aligners customized to your smile that gently re-position teeth. Unlike traditional metal bracket braces, Invisalign aligners are removable. The aligners can be removed for eating, drinking, and brushing and flossing. Invisalign can be a good option for people who have mild to moderate need for orthodontic treatment. Significant or severe issues may not qualify for treatment through Invisalign. How do you know when Invisalign is right for you and your smile?
Adapt To Routine
Invisalign can create a very minimal change in appearance during treatment. The clear aligners are much harder to spot than traditional braces in photos and by the naked eye. The aligners need to be worn for 22-24 hours a day for six to eighteen months. The length of treatment depends on your smile’s needs. People that are forgetful about wearing their aligners can have a less effective and longer treatment time. If you are a person that does not thrive on routine, remembering to wear your aligners could be difficult. Invisalign may not be the best option for teeth that need to move vertically or for issues with the back bite. Your orthodontist will best be able to tell you if Invisalign is right for you.
