Invisalign has improved millions of smiles worldwide! Is yours one of them? Whether you’ve had Invisalign treatment in the past or you are thinking about improving your smile with Invisalign, this blog is for you. It’s time to get the facts about Invisalign!
Fact: Invisalign trays are removable. This fact isn’t a surprise to most of our patients, but the flexibility that comes with it is! Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign gives you the flexibility to eat and drink what you want and floss and brush your teeth like normal! Not only is this valuable in social settings, but it can also help you maintain good oral health for the duration of your treatment.
Fact: Choosing Invisalign shouldn’t be based on time. For more cases, smile correction with Invisalign takes the same amount of time as traditional braces. The important thing to remember is good things take time. So there’s no need to rush the creation of your dream smile!
Fact: There are other ways Invisalign saves you time! We love to see you, but we know sometimes you just don’t have time to go to the dentist. Invisalign is unlike traditional braces which require more frequent visits for check-ups and wire tightening. Typically, we will schedule your check-ups every six weeks. Since Invisalign is a wire-free smile correcting solution, there’s never a need to come in for wire tightening.
Fact: Almost any alignment problem traditional braces can fix, can be corrected with Invisalign. Overbites, underbites, crowded teeth, and unevenly spaced teeth are no match for Invisalign. Even teeth that have shifted after previous treatment from traditional braces can be corrected with Invisalign.
Fact: You’re gonna feel a little pressure. Invisalign works by using gentle and controlled pressure to move your teeth. You can expect your teeth to move up to ⅓ of a millimeter every two weeks. While that doesn’t seem like much, it’s just the right amount to provide comfortable smile correction and impressive results!
Fact: Invisalign is just the beginning. Just like traditional braces, if you want to enjoy your new smile indefinitely, be sure to wear your retainer. Talk to Dr. Kerns about post-treatment care so you can enjoy your dream smile for longer!
