If you want to have an Invisalign treatment, you have to go to a dental clinic where your teeth will be evaluated. They will take the photograph of your teeth and face. And also capture your teeth’ dental impressions, and you will undergo two x-rays. The information with detailed instructions from your dentist will be sent off to Invisalign on how the teeth should be moved.
The next process is the scanning of your teeth’s dental impression to create a 3D model of your teeth in the computer. After going through the impression and how the teeth would be shifted to their final position, the virtual 3D models will be printed and delivered to you.
If you’re considering Invisalign, here are the 5 benefits of Invisalign:
1. Easy to Maintain
Proper dental hygiene is crucial to overall wellness, but metal braces can be tricky to brush and floss. On the other hand, Invisalign aligners are easier to maintain. You do not have to go to a dental clinic before you clean your Invisalign. Remove your aligners, brush them, brush your teeth and gum properly, and replace your clear aligners. No stress. No pains. No difficulties.
Invisalign aligners are made of medical-grade, lightweight plastic. They are processed from the impression of the patient’s teeth for a custom set of Invisalign aligners. As a result, they are comfortable even the patient wears them for 24 hours. The patient does not feel any discomfort – no wires, no metal brackets to irritate the gums, mouth, or cheeks.
3. Certainty of Results
Invisalign patients usually undergo a computerized treatment planning that shows what to expect from the treatment and the duration of wearing clear braces even before they start wearing them. There is certainty of what the outcome of the treatment will be.
4. Freedom to Play a Musical Instrument
If you play a musical instrument that uses a mouthpiece, you do not have to worry. You can wear Invisalign clear aligners and play your favorite instrument. You will not feel any difficulties or pains like when you try to play your instrument wearing a metal brace.
With Invisalign, you only have to go to the dental clinic every six weeks on average for maintenance. So, you spend less time at the dental clinic. You may need to visit the dentist more frequently when you choose other teeth straightening procedures.
