Teeth straightening without braces? It’s possible with Invisalign!

October 16, 2015

It’s not too late to straighten your teeth. And, you can do it without braces. The Invisalign orthodontic treatment is both transparent and comfortable.

Invisalign is a super modern orthodontic treatment that corrects certain dental misalignments through the use of transparent trays that guide the teeth into place. With the cosmetic advantage of being undetectable, this technique is gaining in popularity, especially compared to the metal braces that are traditionally used in orthodontics.

How does Invisalign work?

The Invisalign treatment process involves the wearing of a series of transparent, removable aligners that are made to fit over your teeth in a practically invisible way. Made to measure, they enable the teeth to gradually move into place. The aligners are changed every two weeks, up until the final position prescribed by the orthodontist is reached. Best of all, they are both comfortable and efficient. Given that the aligners can be removed, the teeth can still be brushed and flossed normally throughout the treatment. That means the teeth and the gums can remain healthy with daily cleaning, which can be hard to achieve with regular braces.

Adapted treatment

The Invisalign process is used along with a high-technology 3-D computer program that shows both you and your orthodontist the progress of your treatment as well as the projected final outcome. The orthodontist and his or her technicians tailor an Invisalign treatment for each patient, with varying degrees of duration and complexity that depend on the current position of the teeth. For beautiful results, it is generally estimated that an Invisalign treatment will last between nine and eighteen months.

Invisalign for teens

A large number of adults choose the Invisalign system because it is undetectable. However, the treatment can also be specially designed for teens, who have a special interest in getting Toutefoistheir teeth straightened with transparent technology. The removable trays help them maintain their self-esteem, and because they can also brush their teeth and floss the way they usually do, teens can maintain good oral health all through the treatment. The orthodontist can predict the duration of the treatment and make allowances for the appearance of adult teeth as they grown in.

The advantages of getting your teeth straightened

There are many advantages to having properly aligned teeth:

  • healthier gums
  • better dental health
  • pain-free chewing
  • better speech
  • healthier jaw and joints
