Invisalign is one of the latest technologies in braces. Your general dentist or orthodontist makes impressions of your teeth and sends them for fabrication of custom aligners. The computer scans the models and your dentist formulates a treatment plan just for you to correct irregular teeth.
Invisalign is ideal for adults and teens who can take care of their clear aligners. It is easy to keep them clean and are very aesthetic compared to metal braces. The individual does not need to alter their diet or lifestyle to accommodate Invisalign in their life.
Almost everybody is a candidate for Invisalign treatment. Major tooth movements or jaw bone abnormalities cannot be corrected by Invisalign. It is very effective for basic tooth movements and straightening your smile. Invisalign aligners may not be recommended for younger teens as they may lose them.
If you have had braces before and your bite is shifting or if you lost your retainers resulting in the bite to shift Invisalign is a great option. The custom clear aligners take little to no time to take care of in the morning and at bed time. Invisalign treatment is especially recommended for kids in contact sports as there are no metal braces to damage teeth or soft tissue around it if they accidentally get hit in the mouth.
Invisalign clear braces are great if you are a public figure, in front of the camera, or customer relations. These jobs require a person to talk a lot and these aligners do not interfere with speech or lifestyle. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible making them a very aesthetic to alternative to traditional dental braces.
