You may be a good candidate for Invisalign clear aligners if you have mild misalignment, gaps between your teeth, or bite problems. At Sedation Dental Spa of South Florida, the clear plastic trays are custom-designed for your teeth to ensure a comfortable and effective fit. The trays can be removed whenever you want to eat or brush or floss your teeth.
Invisalign uses gradual force to push your teeth into a more desirable alignment over time. You wear each tray for about two weeks and then replace it with the next in the series until you’ve finished all of them. Each tray will slightly shift your teeth into the desired position. Invisalign treatment is designed to be gentle on your teeth while also efficiently changing the alignment of your teeth.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Unlike traditional treatments that use braces, Invisalign uses a series of custom-made aligners to correct your malocclusion. You wear each aligner for about two weeks before switching to the next in the series. The aligners are removable, so you can take them out to eat and brush your teeth. You can also remove your aligners for important events and special occasions like school pictures or job interviews.
Your specific treatment plan will depend on your particular needs and goals. However, you can expect to wear your Invisalign aligners for about 20 to 22 hours daily. Regular checkups with our dentist are also necessary to monitor your progress and ensure the best results.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign is a modern alternative to traditional metal braces. Patients wear a series of custom-made aligners that help shift the teeth into their proper positions over time. The aligners are virtually invisible when worn and can be removed for eating and teeth-cleaning purposes.
With clear aligners, you don’t have to worry about having food stuck in your teeth or feeling self-conscious about your smile. These affordable and convenient aligners allow you to continue your life as usual without interrupting your daily routine.
Traditional braces use brackets with metal wires and rubber bands to shift the teeth. Invisalign uses clear trays custom-designed based on molds of the patient’s teeth. These trays apply a steady force to the teeth, gradually moving them into alignment.
Invisalign aligners should be worn for at least 20 to 22 hours daily but can be removed by patients when they are cleaning their teeth or eating.
