To encourage people to undergo teeth straightening, dentists have developed many different types of invisible braces Sydney that help straighten your teeth without drawing further attention to your mouth. If you are looking to address the misalignment issues of your teeth at your discretion then you need to speak to your dentist and find out which invisible braces may be most suitable for you. Invisalign is one of the most popular types of invisible braces available. They differ from traditional braces in that they can be taken out of your mouth and replaced as required and also as the name suggests Invisalign are almost invisible. They are a modern and efficient form of invisible braces and they have helped more than 13 million patients across the world so far and still continue to be the invisible braces of choice amongst dentists and patients alike.
Is Invisalign suitable for you?
To find out if Invisalign is the most suitable form of invisible braces for you then you need to undergo an examination of your teeth and gums with your dentist. They will make sure that your teeth and gums are healthy and that there are no underlying issues. If it is safe to move your teeth then you will need an intraoral scan that is used to create a digital image of your teeth. This is sent to the Invisalign laboratory and they will create a video of how your teeth can be moved using Invisalign aligners. The Invisalign team will also let your dentist know how many aligners are needed and how long it will take to achieve the final result. If you are happy with the treatment plan then your aligners will be ordered and they will be delivered within two or three weeks and the process can begin.
As the treatment plan prescribes, it is important that you wear your aligners for two weeks before you move on to the next one in the sequence. Each of the aligners need to be worn in your mouth for approximately 22 hours of the day. If you are unable to wear the aligners for this time then it can affect the end results and prolong the duration of the treatment. This may mean that you need more aligners at the end of the treatment to perfect the alignment of your teeth. By putting together a timetable you will be able to manage your time more productively and make sure that you wear the aligners for the maximum required.
Eating and drinking with Invisalign
Invisalign is a highly convenient method of straightening your teeth. It does not affect what you eat or drink because the aligners are taken out of your mouth at meal times. This is in stark contrast to traditional orthodontic treatment where you have to be careful with your choice of food or drink as it can damage or get stuck in your braces. Invisalign offers you the freedom to enjoy your food and drink as long as you maintain a good dental hygiene routine. Speak to your dentist to find out more about the many advantages of Invisalign and why it is such a popular choice amongst adults with crooked teeth across the world.
