When you undergo treatment with Invisalign®, you can enjoy smile correction with clear and cozy aligners. In addition, these orthodontics are completely removable too! In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX, orthodontist talks about how we create removable braces, and improve your smile’s alignment.
The Invisalign® System
How does the Invisalign® system address an uneven smile? Well, to begin we need to carefully examine your smile with digital imaging technology to assess the cause and extent of your misalignment. If clear aligners are right for you, the images and measurements we take can be sued to create a 3D computer impression, one we use to design the orthodontics. When the aligners are ready, you will wear a set for about 20 to 22 hours a day, over a period of two weeks. At this point, you will upgrade to a new set. This process continues for about a year for adults, or 18 months to teens, but the act time will depend on the severity of your misalignment.
People love this option because the aligners are clear and barely noticeable. Being custom-made means they also fit comfortably and limit discomfort. But another major benefit is the removable aspect. This means they’re not affixed to your teeth. Instead, you can take them before you eat or prior to brushing and flossing, or even before special occasions. Being removable means there is need to alter your diet or avoid certain foods, and that brushing and flossing your teeth is much easier too! As long as you wear them as prescribed, removal for special occasions is possible too!
Benefits for Your Oral Health
A straighter smile means you not only feel great when you laugh and smile, but that you also have a reduced risk of tooth decay and gum disease too, as brushing and flossing is more effective. The chances of TMJ disorder or bruxism (teeth grinding) forming are reduced too, so you enjoy a more comfortable smile as well. If you have an uneven smile, then contact to our team. We can use clear aligners to help our teen and adult patients, but we also have retainers and teeth spacers for kids as young as age seven! In addition, our braces with tooth-colored brackets can help mor severe cases of misalignment too!
