What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a popular orthodontic treatment that over eight million people worldwide have used to straighten their smiles. It involves using a series of clear, plastic aligners to gently push your teeth into proper alignment.
What does Invisalign treat?
Invisalign is effective in treating a variety of orthodontic conditions, like:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Widely spaced teeth
- Open bite
Many patients also choose Invisalign to cosmetically improve their smiles by generally straightening their teeth.
How does Invisalign compare to braces?
Invisalign is a newer technology, and therefore has many significant advantages over braces, like:
Your Invisalign aligners are made from smooth and flexible BPA-free plastic, so they won’t irritate the inside of your mouth, unlike the metal wires and brackets in traditional braces.
Braces are semi-permanent, which means that you have to adjust your diet during treatment to avoid damaging them. You also have to invest in special tools and learn new brushing and flossing techniques, which can be a hassle. Your Invisalign aligners, on the other hand, are removable, so you can brush, floss, and eat just like you normally do.
Braces are noticeable in your mouth, which can make some people (like older adults) hesitant. Invisalign’s clear aligners are virtually unnoticeable, so you won’t have to worry about compromising your appearance during your treatment.
How do I get started with Invisalign?
To start straightening your smile with Invisalign, schedule a consultation at Avra Dental. Dr. Jabaiti starts the process by taking an impression of your mouth and then turns that impression into a virtual model.
Using that model, Dr. Jabaiti or a team of Invisalign technicians maps out the steps your teeth need to take to arrive at a perfect alignment, then fabricates your series of aligners to accommodate those steps.
You wear your aligners every day whenever you’re not eating, brushing, or flossing, and check-in with Dr. Jabaiti every few weeks to monitor your progress. You’ll have a perfectly aligned smile in no time.
