If you want the confidence of a great smile you should use Invisalign to straighten your teeth discreetly. Invisalign uses a series of almost invisible aligning trays to move teeth gradually based on a treatment plan designed specifically for you.
It does not involve any metal brackets or wires meaning that you will have complete confidence in your smile both during and after treatment. Most people won’t actually notice you are wearing them. The aligners are also removable meaning that you can eat what you wish then brush and floss as you do normally.
All you will have to do is visit the dentist every few weeks to track progress and get another set of aligners. Treatment on average takes less than one year to complete.
How Does Invisalign Work?
The dentist creates a series of aligners just for you to move the teeth as required. The aligners are virtually invisible and are made of thermoplastic material designed uniquely for the Invisalign treatment plan and are similar in appearance to teeth whitening trays. You will wear each set for about 2 weeks before you move on to a different set of aligners in the treatment plan outlined for you by the dentist.
How Often Should You Wear Aligners?
Dentists recommend wearing your Invisalign for between 20 and 22 hours each day and only remove them when eating, drinking, brushing, or flossing.
Will Speech Be Affected If You Wear Invisalign Aligners?
Invisalign can affect speech temporarily and some people might have a slight lisp for a couple of days. However, once you get used to having the aligner in the mouth the lisp should disappear.
Is Invisalign Covered By Insurance?
Medical benefits usually vary from one policy to the next, so dentist recommends reviewing your coverage and checking with the insurance provider to confirm if it is covered. Invisalign should be covered to a similar extent to traditional braces if you have orthodontic coverage.
Does Invisalign Work?
Yes. Invisalign has been used to treat than 1.5 million people with a diverse range of dental alignment challenges. Orthodontists developed it and orthodontic and dental practices all over the world use it.
