At our offices, we rely on computer imaging rather than the conventional plaster molds to execute this treatment method. First, our experts will use an oral camera to take digital images of your teeth. Then, they will use a software program to generate a personalized treatment plan based on the image. The images will help in the development of custom-made Invisalign aligners, which should fit well in your teeth.
In addition to this, we also use digital 3D modeling, which allows our experts to predict the results of your treatment accurately. You should expect your Invisalign aligners to be replaced with tightly fitting aligners once every two weeks. This should go on until you achieve your desired results.
Who Is The Right Candidate For This Treatment Method?
Invisalign aligners are present an excellent treatment option for our orthodontic treatment patients. However, our patients have to ask themselves one question before they start this treatment option. Am I the right candidate for this treatment method? Our experts can recommend this treatment option in the following circumstances.
Patients without Extenuating Circumstances
Invisalign can be the best treatment option for patients who need the aligners to straighten their teeth. However, you might need further orthodontic treatment in the event you have a more complicated situation.
Most teenagers have self-esteem issues when it comes to fixing their alignment issues with conventional braces. However, these issues can be solved through clear aligners since they are less conspicuous and more comfortable compared to traditional braces.
Patients with Poor Hygiene
Oral hygiene and care tend to be a challenge for patients with braces. However, this is not an issue for patients with Invisalign aligners. What you need to do is to remove your aligners, and then brush and floss your teeth as normal. This is one of the main reasons why many patients opt to use this treatment option.
The Advantages of Using Invisalign
Invisalign aligners come with several benefits compared to metal braces. With Invisalign aligners, you can eat and drink normally, and also participate in your daily activities without any worry. In addition to this, you will be able to enjoy the following:
Since Invisalign are made from smooth plastic, they are more comfortable compared to conventional metal braces. With this treatment option, you will not experience the extruding and sharp edges associated with metal braces.
Invisalign aligners are completely clear, which means they won’t affect the smile on your face. This makes them the perfect treatment option for teens, youths, and young adults.
Freedom to Eat Different Foodstuffs
Invisalign aligners will not limit you in terms of what you have to eat. With metal braces, you will have to avoid some foods since they can damage them. However, this will not be the case with Invisalign aligners. You can remove your aligners and eat whatever you want.
