Invisalign: An Invisible Orthodontic Treatment that Produces Noteworthy Results
If you’re a teen or adult with crooked teeth, the thought of traditional metal braces can be highly unappealing. Fortunately, there’s an alternative in the form of Invisalign treatment. Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligners to straighten your teeth, giving you noteworthy results in as little as 12-18 months. You can obtain quality Invisalign dental services at StarBrite Dental in Dublin.
Advantages of Invisalign Over Braces in Straightening Your Teeth
Traditional braces with their metal brackets and wires are highly visible and often irritating, as the wires can poke your gums and cheeks. As a young professional, it can be embarrassing to be seen with braces, especially when attending work seminars or conferences with new clients. Metal braces can also cramp a teen’s style when they want to look and feel good about their appearance.
Actual Patient Results
In contrast, Invisalign aligners are invisible on your teeth, so people can hardly tell you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. You can smile and laugh with ease without worrying about your appearance. Invisalign also offers additional advantages in the form of:
- Comfort – the plastic aligners have no metal parts to poke your skin
- Convenience – the aligners can be removed for eating and cleaning your teeth
- Shorter treatments – most treatments can be completed in 12 to 18 months as opposed to several years
- Versatility – Invisalign can treat a wide range of dental issues, including crooked and misaligned teeth, uneven teeth, gapped teeth, overbites, crossbites, underbites, and overcrowding.
Invisalign Treatment Process
The Invisalign treatment process is relatively simple. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala will take impressions of your mouth to custom-design aligners for your use. When worn, these aligners put gentle pressure on your teeth to shift them into proper alignment. For optimal results, Invisalign aligners should be worn at least 22 hours daily. Every few weeks, you’ll switch aligners to continue your treatment until your smile goals are reached.
