There are a variety of dental treatments available for people who may need to have their teeth fixed before they can have a healthy smile. A dental treatment may include sedation, tooth whitening, facial aesthetics, envisaging, and other physical changing procedures that can make a difference in the look of your smile. Invisalign dental treatment is the most common treatment in dentistry. What is Invisalign?
Invisalign dental treatment is a type of procedure that aligns the teeth without the metal braces. Although they work the same way as braces there are many advantages to wearing Invisalign dental treatment instead of braces. The Invisalign dental treatment is removable so you can take it out during the day and only wear them at night or if you do wear them during the day, they are less noticeable. They are transparent in color so no one can see them. They are not made of metal or steel like braces are. Also, braces are not removable except through a dentist but the Invisaligns are removable and are removed daily.
Depending on the severity of the misalignment of the teeth, patients may need to wear them a total of six months to six years. In order to get your Invisalign, you will need to visit your dentist and after a dental exam, he or she will recommend the Invisaligns. Before the Invisaligns can be ordered, a three-dimensional picture will be needed of your jaw structure. After the three-dimensional image is complete, the dentist can evaluate the severity of the misalignment and recommend the amount of time Invisaligns will be required before the teeth are aligned.
Not every dentist will be able to work with Invisaligns so you will need to speak to your dentist first to determine this. If they don’t then you will need to find another dentist that will. If your dentist does work with Invisaligns, you will be able to schedule your appointment so you can be fitted for them. During this visit, your dentist may find a few things that need to be done while you are in the chair and before the Invisaligns can be ordered. This may include pulling a tooth to eliminate the overcrowding in your mouth. Your dentist will also want to clean your teeth to make sure that they are as healthy as they can be before you put the Invisaligns in.
While wearing your Invisaligns it is important that you take good care of your teeth. You want to make sure that you brush regularly, you eat right, and always make sure to avoid staining substances such as candy, tea, coffee, and other drinks and foods.
When you have a question regarding your new Invisaligns you need to contact your dentist. Keep all your dental appointments in order to make sure that your teeth are adjusting to the gentle pressure applied to them at a steady rate. When it is time to quit wearing them, your teeth should be straight and your smile will be bigger.
