Straighten Your Teeth With Invisalign

Posted on: January 2, 2018

InvisalignAre you looking for a way to straighten your crooked or spaced teeth? Invisalign® is the answer. This cutting-edge dental technology will straighten your teeth much quicker than other methods like traditional dentures.

If you have heard or read allegations that Invisalign® will only straighten your teeth if they are slightly crooked, you have been misinformed. Here is a look at the merits of Invisalign® for teeth straightening.

Invisalign® is ideal for nearly every patient who suffers from crooked teeth

Invisalign® is a full system for teeth-straightening as opposed to a simple retainer. Tough a retainer is provided at the end of the treatment to keep the teeth in place, it is not the focal point of Invisalign®. It does not matter how crooked the teeth are since Invisalign® will straighten them out in little time.

While there may be some cases in which the patient has to wear traditional braces, nearly every patient will find Invisalign® is the optimal approach. Ask those who have tried Invisalign® and many will report it perfected the look of their once-crooked and/or spaced teeth.

How Invisalign® straightens teeth

The Invisalign® system is centered on a series of aligners to straighten crooked teeth. These aligners are designed with computer software to gauge how the patient’s unique teeth will move. Invisalign® aligners move the teeth in a subtle manner, allowing adjacent teeth to build upon the progress of nearby teeth. This is precisely why the patient must wear the aligners in the proper order that we set up.

Invisalign® aligners will initially feel slightly tight and spur a bit of tooth soreness. The aligner will eventually loosen after it moves the teeth as designed. When this loosening occurs, it is a sign the next aligner in the series should be placed in the mouth. Teeth are perfectly straight and spaced after the patient progresses through each Invisalign® aligner.

Invisalign® straightens teeth with incredible speed

In most instances, Invisalign® aligners straighten wayward teeth faster than conventional braces. The specific amount of time required to straight teeth hinges on how this approach affects each patient’s unique mouth. Part of the appeal of this approach is the patient will not have to spend time in the dentist’s chair for wires to be adjusted as occurs with conventional braces.

Be patient, allow the teeth to move as intended and it will not be long until patients begin to see meaningful results. The teeth move in a gradual manner to ensure lasting results. Those who wear their Invisalign® aligners for the recommended number of hours (22) per day will enjoy fantastic results in little time.

Those who do not keep the aligners in for this period of time might need a series of refinement trays at the end of the alignment cycle. This is nothing to be alarmed about. The alignment tray is akin to the finishing touch that ensures your teeth remain straight and evenly spaced.
