Invisalign is a popular, discreet teeth straightening treatment designed to give you the teeth you have always wanted. This innovative procedure has so far helped over 12 million people achieve their dream smile.
So, what is Invisalign and why is it so popular? Here, we will answer some of the most common questions about Invisalign teeth straightening to help you decide if it is right for you.
What is Invisalign teeth straightening?
Invisalign teeth straightening is a 3-step process that aims to straighten out the teeth in adults and teens. You will wear clear aligners that are practically invisible to the naked eye, and there are no wires or brackets to worry about.
The clear aligners are created from a flexible plastic known as SmartTrack. This is specifically created for Invisalign treatment, and it makes the aligners comfortable to wear. They are developed to apply just the right amount of pressure onto the teeth to bring them into alignment.
Each Invisalign treatment is tailored to the patient’s mouth, ensuring natural, effective results.
What are the benefits of Invisalign teeth straightening?
Invisalign teeth straightening offers a range of excellent benefits. These include:
- Discreet yet highly effective
- You can remove them when needed, such as to eat or drink
- There are no wires or brackets that could break
How long do I need to wear the aligners for?
The clear aligners will need to be worn for around 20-22 hours each day. You need to keep them in as long as possible to experience best results. You can take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
When can I expect to see results?
You could experience full results in as little as six months. However, most patients find it takes between 12 and 18 months to complete the treatment. This will depend upon the complexity of the case.
The aligners will also need to be changed regularly throughout the treatment. Again, this will differ depending upon your specific case. However, you can expect to change them weekly or fortnightly.
How much will Invisalign treatment cost?
The cost of your Invisalign treatment will depend upon several factors. These include the complexity of your case and how long you need to have the treatment for. Your dentist will be able to give you an accurate quote after an initial assessment.
