Invisalign Clear Aligners
The team at Irvine Dentistry is always happy to give you an improved look with an Invisalign® treatment. Invisalign offers you a chance of having your moderately crooked teeth straightened out without the need for surgery. It is different from braces that make use of wires or brackets to get the teeth in the desired angle. Instead, the teeth are systematically moved using custom-designed aligners crafted from plastic that is very clear. This makes them less noticeable, unlike braces.
This procedure has drastically changed the orthodontic world because as it is, patients are now more inclined towards Invisalign. Previously, they had little option when it came to the choice of teeth straitening procedures, but now that has changed. However, the cost is a little too high for a regular pocket. Perhaps this is its major downside.
Advantages of Invisalign
Invisalign has many advantages. For a start, the aligners are clear, hence not easily detectable unless by a very keen eye. If you are into the procedure for straight teeth and not much more, you have won a good deal for yourself. Secondly, they are removable devices that offer very little resistance to you. Whether you want to eat, clean, or simply take a desired break from wearing them, you have the liberty to do so. Thirdly, they offer plenty of comfort to the wearer. They align teeth very minimally you will hardly feel any pain. As a result you may be unaware of their existence until you start to eat.
Crooked teeth gradually lead to tooth decay and other cavity related menace. They tend to hide many unseen food particles, leading to a build-up of bacteria. Through Invisalign, this kind of dental formula can be altered for an improved look. Apart from tooth decay, misshapen teeth can present a hard time when one talks, eats or sings. Invisalign can bring positive transformation under such circumstances.
Preparation For An Invisalign Procedure
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment involving clear tray aligners. They are made from clear plastic and fitted into one’s mouth. Since they are custom designed, every patient receives individually specified trays regarding what is suitable. Once they have been fitted into someone’s mouth, they exert sufficient pressure to help teeth gradually shift into the desired position.
You may consider Invisalign owing to its numerous advantages. Do visit our dental office for a more detailed explanation of what the procedure may entail for you. After you decide that Invisalign is your best bet, Dr. Christianne Lee will examine your dental structure to get a clear impression of your whole mouth. From the impression, your Invisalign trays will be designed.
As soon as your set of trays is ready, they will be checked for fit professionally. Each tray will be sequenced to allow for the gradual shift in position. We will advise you on when to switch to the next tray. The number of trays and length of the treatment will vary depending on the severity of the misalignment being corrected.
