When you wanted straighter teeth and a more beautiful smile in the past, you had no choice but to opt for traditional metal braces. With advents in dental technology, you now have access to Invisalign, the clear and nearly invisible method for straightening your natural teeth.
Improved New Design
Invisalign has come a long way since it was first introduced. Today’s Invisalign near-transparent aligners are lightweight and made of an ultra-strong plastic material. This makes them easier to wear and almost impervious to damage. With the proper Invisalign teeth straightening treatment plan by a qualified Invisalign provider like Dr. Salami, you could be well on your way to the smile of your dreams. You only have to schedule your initial Invisalign consultation.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign aligners act as a guide for your crooked teeth and straighten your smile similar to the way traditional braces are known to do. Instead of being bonded to your teeth like braces, you get a set of Invisalign clear plastic aligners that you fit over your teeth, much like a form-fitted sports mouthguard.
Your aligners are created in a lab and are based on both digital imaging and clay-based models. This ensures that your Invisalign aligners fit your teeth exactly and move any crooked teeth to a straighter and more attractive position.
Invisalign Aligners Move Your Teeth Gradually Into Position
While traditional braces are tightened over time to move your teeth into position, Invisalign is managed a bit differently.
You will be provided with your first set of Invisalign aligners and that will make the start of treatment. After a couple of weeks, you will be provided with a new set of aligners, whereby you will discard the old pair.
The new pair of aligners is designed to move your teeth slightly more toward the targeted position. Each set of aligner replacements continues your treatment until the end, whereby your teeth will have been straightened over time.
Nearly Invisible Orthodontic Treatment
One of the primary benefits of Invisalign that many patients love is the fact that the plastic aligners look nearly invisible when worn over your natural teeth.
The plastic used for Invisalign is a high-grade, non-toxic material that is impervious to high heat and breakage. When worn over your teeth, many patients marvel that they can still smile and retain their confidence. This is opposed to traditional braces, where many first-time wearers tend to hide their smiles.
With Invisalign, you can retain your appearance and confidence while you straighten your teeth with this cutting-edge orthodontic treatment.
