Similar to traditional braces, Invisalign offers the same capabilities addressing your bite and misalignment. Invisalign helps credit their reputation by being able to correct overcrowding a cross bite, gapped teeth, deep bite and an underbite incognito.
Invisalign are clear braces that are removable. They are not fused to your teeth with dental adhesives, wires or brackets but instead fit over your teeth. Think of a gum shield, but picture a more natural looking device which is clear and comfortable. They can also be taken out during meals, whilst cleaning your teeth, or when the opportunity for the perfect selfie arises.
The stigma of braces being painful when they are first installed is well founded. Traditional braces have always been known to be uncomfortable throughout the treatment duration. Because of their fixed nature, their wires relentlessly pull and tug into position through force. With Invisalign, you receive a series of aligners, which are custom made for your teeth. These aligners vary very slightly from each other, allowing your teeth to be guided into the right positions through softer pressure. Not only this, but they’re made of a smooth and durable plastic that won’t harm the soft tissues in your mouth.
Invisalign can help protect you against cavities by straightening and aligning crowded teeth and irregular alignment in the mouth. Overlapping teeth create perfect folds and nooks for plaque and bacteria to build up and hide in. Shelter for bacteria and plaque is a huge cavity risk, so crooked teeth which are harder to clean could lead to decay and enamel erosion. Invisalign braces help straighten your teeth to create a more even surface area, which helps to provide a straighter smile and creates a surface area that is far easier to clean.
This differs on a case by case basis and depends entirely on how crooked your teeth are to begin with, however some have achieved straight teeth in as little as six months!
