If you're considering Invisalign to straighten your smile you may be wondering what kind of results you can expect from Invisalign treatment. Our Surrey dentists explain how Invisalign transforms smiles.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of custom-made orthodontic aligners that work to gently move your teeth into their corrected positions, without the need for metal braces.
Treatment involves wearing a set of aligners for approximately two weeks then swapping them out for the next set of aligners in your series until the desired amount of tooth movement has been achieved. Each custom made aligner in your series is designed to make precise incremental adjustments to the positioning of your teeth until your treatment is complete.
Your custom aligners will be made from thin clear plastic so that they are nearly invisible when worn. That means hardly anyone will notice that you are straightening your teeth with Invisalign. Another benefit of the clear aligners is that you won't have to wait until the end of your treatment to enjoy your transforming smile. The clear aligners allow you to enjoy the transformation every step of the way.
Easy to Use Orthodontic Treatment
Unlike braces, Invisalign's clear aligners are also removable. Simply remove your aligners to enjoy your favourite foods! With Invisalign, there is no need to give up the foods you love while straightening your smile.
Your at-home oral hygiene routine will stay much the same as before your Invisalign treatment began. When it's time to clean your teeth, remove your aligners and store them in their handy case, then clean your teeth, rinse your aligners, and return them to your mouth. It's that easy!
Issues that Invisalign Is Designed to Treat
Invisalign can be used to treat a number of misalignment and bite issues from gapped or overcrowded teeth to underbites and overbites.
To find out if you're a good candidate for Invisalign treatment, contact a Straight Smile Centres member practice in Surrey to book an Invisalign consultation. After a thorough assessment of your teeth and bite, your Straight Smile dentist will let you know whether you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign treatment. If so, you will be shown a digital representation of how Invisalign could transform your smile.
If you choose Invisalign as your orthodontic treatment, your dentist will then create a personalized treatment plan for your unique smile. Your treatment plan will chart a course for your Invisalign treatment including anticipated timelines. Because every smile is unique, treatment plans vary accordingly. To achieve the best possible results from your Invisalign treatment it's important to diligently follow the plan and the instructions set out by your dentist.
What to Expect from Your Invisalign Treatment
Depending on the nature and severity of your misalignment issue, there are a number of things you can expect once your Invisalign treatment is complete.
Once your treatment is complete, if you have followed the treatment plan prescribed by your dentist, and worn your aligners for 22 hours a day (everyday), you can expect to see a straighter, more even smile. Patients using Invisalign to correct bite issues can also expect to see a noticeable improvement in the function of their smile.
