Answering Your Questions About Invisalign Clear Teeth Aligners:
Which Patients Are Good Candidates for Invisalign Clear Teeth Aligners?
Invisalign is an excellent option, but it is not the best solution for everyone. Clear braces for adults and teens are ideal but not recommended for children that still have primary teeth and permanent teeth that have some growing left to do.
At Friendly Dentistry, we will examine your teeth and let you know if invisible aligners are the best option for your alignment needs. In most cases, Invisalign is a great solution.
How Do Invisalign Braces Work?
During your first Invisalign brace appointment, 3D images are taken of your teeth. These images are used to create the trays (aligners) that you will slip over your teeth. These clear aligners are custom-made to fit your mouth out of BPA-free plastic.
From your first appointment until the trays are ready, it is typically about a 4-week turnaround. Our dentist and hygienist will instruct you on how to insert the clear teeth aligners (trays) once your custom pair arrives from the lab.
Each tray is worn for about 2 weeks to move, rotate and correct your teeth. The process can take anywhere from as little as 6 months to as much as a year and a half, depending on your specific dental needs. The average time to reach the corrected state when using invisible aligners is about 1 year.
Most patients find the clear aligner completely painless. It takes only a few days to get used to wearing teeth aligners. They can be removed to eat and then slipped right back on. You will wear the aligners all day, every day, and while you sleep.
You will take the aligners out to brush and floss. The aligners can be brushed with a toothbrush when you brush your teeth to keep them clean. It is important to wear the invisible aligners as directed to get the best results.
Every two weeks, you will switch to a new aligner. Your teeth will move in small increments of 1/10th of an mm with every tray on average. This may sound like a small amount, but it is actually tremendous strides
Why Are Clear Braces Best?
Beyond the aesthetic of clear braces that so many patients are fond of, there are healthy teeth benefits as well. Metal braces can make it very difficult to keep your teeth clean, but with clear braces, you can just take the invisible aligners out to get your teeth clean. They simplify good oral hygiene.
Other benefits of these clear braces include:
- Patients at Friendly Dentistry report no or little discomfort from Invisalign Braces. Unfortunately, traditional brace wearers often report discomfort.
- They move teeth with more precision than traditional braces do.
- They can move teeth into the proper position quicker.
- There are fewer dental appointments necessary. Unlike traditional metal braces that require constant dental office visits for adjustments, Invisalign Braces do not.
Patients prefer Invisalign Braces for a wide range of reasons, including:
- They are more comfortable to wear than traditional braces
- They are very discreet
- They offer a more precise movement of teeth
Teenagers and adults with busy lives love the fact that they will have to schedule dental appointments a lot less with invisible teeth aligners than they would with traditional metal braces. An appointment will be scheduled for about every 6 weeks at Friendly Dentistry to check on your progress you’re making with your aligners.
What Happens After Your Clear Teeth Aligners Treatment?
You get to enjoy a great smile that you can feel proud of! You will be fitted with a retainer to ensure that your teeth do not shift out of alignment again. Retainers are used after traditional braces are removed to keep teeth from shifting back into their old positions.
How Much Do Invisalign Braces Cost?
At your first appointment Invisalign appointment, the dentist will have a better idea of what the invisible braces cost will depending on your specific dental needs. The number of trays that will be needed to straighten your teeth is one of many factors that will affect invisible aligners costs. You will know all the invisible braces costs upfront after your first appointment with our Greensboro dentist.
