What Is Invisalign And What Makes It Great?
If you wish to straighten your teeth without braces, Invisalign may be the perfect solution. Both treatments can deliver aligned teeth, but braces come with a range of downsides. Braces are highly visible and make cleaning teeth difficult.
Invisalign is quite the opposite. This clear, almost invisible method is subtle yet effective at the same time. It uses aligner trays to straighten teeth gradually, boosting your smile every day bit by bit. Made of plastic, Invisalign trays are comfortable and easy to remove, so cleaning your teeth will always be easy.
Unlike the restrictiveness of braces, individuals who wear Invisalign can keep up their same eating habits. And you can continue to live your life free of restrictions without having to worry about damaging the trays. Invisalign wearers can also remove the trays to floss and brush without inconvenience. Braces, on the other hand, make flossing into a daily nightmare. In fact, many patients stop flossing at all with braces! And that is bad news for your teeth.
Our Dentist Explains How The Invisalign Treatment Works
Invisalign is a great alternative if you feel uneasy about making regular visits to the dentist’s office. No drilling, tightening, or cementing is required.
In fact, you will only have to meet with your Beverly Hills Invisalign dentist every 4 to 6 weeks for this treatment. Instead of having to face painful tightening, you simply receive new trays that are more gentle than adjusting braces. Additionally, the aligner trays are clear, which means that they are less noticeable than traditional metal braces. The Invisalign braces are made from BPA-free plastic, so you can count on safe material from day one.
Each new pair of trays will pick up where the previous set left off. As you move through your treatment, each set of trays will get you closer to your final goals. Though the alignment is gradual, you will see continual improvement. By the end, you will have a smile that fills you with confidence!
The Invisalign Process
The Process of Installing the Invisalign Treatment is Simple and Involves the Following:
- An initial consultation, during which we will take x-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth to build the foundation of your treatment
- Creation of a three-dimensional image from which we can design a treatment plan optimized for you and you alone
- Building custom-made aligners that fit your unique dental structure to deliver optimal results
Your Invisalign braces will allow your teeth to gradually move into proper positioning through regular, everyday wear. As your treatment plan progresses, we will change out your aligners as well to move you through the next phase of your alignment. It is recommended that you wear your aligners daily for at least 20-24 hours per day to get the best out of your treatment. Generally, we only advise taking them out during meals or when cleaning your teeth.
How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Take?
At Bedford Dental Group, our Beverly Hills cosmetic dentists will be with you every step of the way to ensure that you can reach the results that you desire. No matter how short or long your treatment, we will be here for every part of it.
Generally, a full Invisalign treatment takes between 12-18 months. However, your treatment duration will depend entirely on your unique case (and how often you wear your trays). Some treatments may last even under a year if you want only minor correction. However, more complete correction and alignment can take longer.
We will let you know what your expected treatment time will be before you get started. That way, you can be sure of what you are signing up for. However, the key to success is to use your Invisalign retainers as prescribed. Using them incorrectly or not wearing them for extended periods can significantly increase how long it takes for you to achieve a straight and stunning smile.
Is This Treatment Right For Me?
If you want straight teeth and a great smile, then this treatment could be for you. We work closely with each patient to determine if Invisalign can get them to their goals. However, in cases of extreme tooth misalignment, braces might be the better option. Though they are less convenient, they work for pulling severely misaligned teeth into place. However, most patients will be able to benefit from Invisalign.
And this treatment is especially popular among adults, though teens can of course benefit from it as well. There is no way to hide that you have braces. But Invisalign lives up to its name, and most people won’t even notice you are wearing aligners. This also allows you to build confidence even during your treatment, while braces can have the opposite effect for many patients.
