3 Benefits of Using an Invisible Teeth Straightening System
Patients who want their teeth straightened without having the old-fashioned metal braces now have another option. Invisalign is an invisible teeth straightening system now being offered in Georgetown, TX. The Invisalign teeth straightening system is unique because of its use, and because the aligners do not need to be in place 24 hours a day to be effective. You don’t have to go to the dentist for adjustments, and many people won’t even know you are wearing the aligners.
Easy to Use
The Invisalign teeth straightening system is made up of several aligners that are replaced every two weeks. Each aligner will shift your teeth gradually into a new position until they are all in proper alignment. Aligners can be worn longer if needed to ensure the teeth are where they need to be before moving on to the next step. It is recommended that aligners be worn for approximately 22 hours a day. This allows you enough time to eat and brush your teeth throughout the day while still receiving the maximum benefit from the treatment.
Invisible aligners allow you to straighten your teeth without anyone knowing that you are wearing an appliance. The aligners are made from a durable, clear plastic that allows them to be worn without being seen. They snap on and off of your teeth easily and will remain in place until you remove them. There are no unsightly wires or brackets to deal with. You can remove the aligners during mealtime and replace them when you have finished eating. You will be able to speak and smile naturally without anyone, even knowing they are there.
Because the aligners are replaced every two to three weeks, the shifting of your teeth is gradual and almost unnoticeable. Invisalign can effectively correct a minor underbite or overbite and re-align teeth that are crooked or out of place. The system can also close gaps between teeth or help in creating space for crowded teeth. The length of time for your Invisalign treatment will vary depending on how much movement is needed.
