How Invisalign Works

Posted on 10/15/2023 by Weo Admin
A woman holding her Invisalign clear alignerInvisalign is an orthodontic process that employs transparent aligners to align teeth. These aligners are uniquely crafted in a dental laboratory. The dentist usually takes the impressions of your teeth and uses them to mold the aligner. Invisalign applies controlled pressure on various areas of your teeth at different treatment stages. Each new set of aligners is designed to move specific teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces, this approach offers a more precise and less discomforting method of aligning your teeth.

Who is a Candidate of Invisalign?

Invisalign is ideal for those aiming to enhance their smile through precise teeth alignment. It is more beneficial to teenagers as it effectively tackles dental misalignments. Invisalign aligners are user-friendly, ensuring ease of use. They also boast a comparatively shorter treatment duration than alternative orthodontic methods.

Moreover, Invisalign is also great for adults seeking an attractive smile without the noticeable appearance of conventional metal braces. However, Invisalign might not be suitable for correcting their molars and premolars. Consult our dentist to ascertain the best approach for aligning your teeth. The dentist will take into account your requirements and objectives.

How Long Should You Wear Invisalign Daily

You should always have your Invisalign in place throughout the day. You are only advised to remove them when eating or brushing your teeth. This entails wearing them even during sleep. You can rest assured that you can wear it as you sleep. Every aligner is tailored to your teeth, ensuring a comfortable and smooth fit.

Does Invisalign Treatment Cause Pain?

You might encounter slight discomfort during the initial days of wearing the new Invisalign aligners. The pain usually subsides after a few days as your teeth become accustomed to the aligner's form. But your Invisalign aligners should offer comfort, as they are customized to fit your teeth precisely.
