Invisalign: A Clear Dental Realignment Method that Works

Invisalign is a commonly known treatment for alignment, as its major advantage is the transparency it offers. Invisalign will make the alignment treatment hard to notice to others.

A great benefit of Invisalign is the simplicity of the whole technique. There is no longer a need to go through an extensive, tedious and time-consuming procedure in order to achieve the smile you want and deserve. Invisalign is revolutionary because it aligns your teeth in a flexible and versatile manner while remaining clear. 

To get a better understanding and get more information on how Invisalign is superior as a dental realignment technique, the following are some more details on what the aligners are, how they work, as well as the benefits It will provide you.

How Invisalign Works

The Invisalign is applied to the teeth by our dentist, and fitted tightly, leaving no room for the aligners to move. Once it is applied, the natural tension in the appliance starts to pull the teeth in the needed direction, which will gradually give you the smile you want. The material from which they are made is completely clear and blends with the natural color of your teeth, which makes Invisalign an unnoticeable method of alignment.

Practical Benefits of Invisalign

Following are extra benefits of the Invisalign method:

  • The aligners are virtually invisible unless observed carefully. This is due to the material which is strong to help you achieve your perfect smile yet clear so the procedure can go unnoticed.

  • They are very adaptable and can be worn throughout the day, except when you need to eat. Commonly, the Invisalign aligners can be worn for drinks and such, however, if consuming hot drinks it is better to take them off, as the temperature may affect the durability of the aligners.
    For food, take off the aligners and continue eating as you usually do. When it is time to apply them once again, make sure that the mouth is rinsed thoroughly, and that there is no food remains left.

  • They fit very well due to the custom molding done by our dentist. The fit provides your teeth with a much better alignment since there is more surface area through which the pressure is been applied, which will result in a better adjustment. The greater surface area also means that your entire natural smile moves as one. This helps in getting a more even and natural alignment.

  • Invisalign is great for an active lifestyle since Invisalign do not require the person wearing them to be very careful with what they eat. All one needs to do is take off the appliances prior to eating. It is best to brush your teeth before inserting the aligners, to ensure that no food remains before you reinsert the aligners.
