While there are a few common methods to getting straighter teeth such as metal braces, one of the best ways to do this can be done with Invisalign aligners. While this is a relatively new method and a way to get straighter teeth, it has become one of the most popular methods in recent years. See how Invisalign works to straighten your teeth and give you the smile of your dreams.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic device that helps straighten teeth. They are typically clear and made out of plastic, and made to fit your teeth snuggly. Through the course of your treatment plan, you can expect to alternate through different aligners. Depending on desired results, the amount of aligners you will need to go through can vary.
How Does Invisalign Work?
While you will receive multiple aligners during the course of your treatment, each one is slightly different from the last, as they work to realign and straighten your teeth. These plastic trays put slight pressure onto your teeth and help slowly but surely readjust them. Your dentist will put you on a schedule and determine when is the best time to swap aligners and how many you will need, depending on your starting point and desired results.
Invisalign aligners move teeth in a similar fashion to the way metal braces do but without the hassle and inconvenience. While this process takes time, it is a much less painful and uncomfortable one than metal braces tend to offer. You can also expect better results the more you wear your aligners, as the minimum recommended amount is 20 hours per day. Wearing them for 22 hours per day for example can help you reach your desired goal faster.
