You can cover yourself up in expensive signature garb, but unless you have a beautiful smile plastered on your face, you’re as good as naked. Indeed, your smile is the best outfit you can wear, which is why you need to make sure your pearly whites are always in good condition.
However, due to both intrinsic and extrinsic factors, you may not be able to maintain the good condition of your teeth. In fact, you may grow up having crooked teeth or severe overbite. Should that be the case, don’t think that it’s the end of the world for you. There are various dental technologies addressing said problems, and with the help of dentists who are trained in using best dental practices, the problems can be fixed in no time. Metal or ceramic braces, for instance, can remedy both crooked teeth and severe overbites.
Another recent advancement in orthodontics and dental technology is Invisalign, which is a unique technology that straightens up one’s teeth invisibly. These invisible braces are widely used to correct misaligned teeth among adults. Invisalign is described as an invisible solution because no one will know that you are wearing it. You can smile without difficulty right after the treatment. By using a string of clear, removable aligners, the orthodontist adjusts the teeth right accordingly. These aligners are custom-built using modern 3-D imaging equipment.
Invisalign braces are detachable plastic aligners that are made to set straight the teeth without the traditional metal mouth braces. They are prepared based on exact specifications and the treatment plan prepared by your dental expert. It is worn for a period of two weeks while the whole treatment is less than one year until you are able to reach the perfect smile that you desire. It’s probably one of the best and innovative dental services ever invented. Not only does Invisalign correct crooked teeth but also relieve a person of TMJ pain.
There are certain differences between Invisalign and conventional braces. The aligners are removable so you can always take them off whenever it is needed. However, to get the results that you want, you need to follow the treatment plan as instructed by your cosmetic dentist or orthodontist. The aligners have smooth edges and do not involve metal wires or brackets. Many patients do not like the metal used in braces since these are irritating to the cheeks and gums and causes a lot of discomfort. Teeth, gum cleaning, and maintenance are easier with invisible braces than the traditional type.
Patients receive new trays for the upper and lower row of teeth every other week from their dentist and each set gradually moves their crooked teeth in a straight line. Whether one suffers from crowded or spaced teeth, a cross bite, overbite, under bite, or any other orthodontic disorder, Invisalign can correct the malady and help patients get that perfect smile.
Invisalign was introduced to the cosmetic dentistry market in the late nineties and since then it has helped over a million patients worldwide with oral restoration. It has definitely changed the way the history of dentistry is written. It is available in Europe and other countries like the United States, Canada, Australia, South America, and Asia.
