Invisalign is one of the most popular choices these days for teeth straightening. Invisalign has gained popularity because of the ease of use and convenience of its invisible aligners.
Dr. Peter Yelizar, DDS, and Dr. Tammy Yelizar, DDS, at SimpliSmiles in Hicksville and Farmingdale, NY, offer various treatment options for teeth straightening, including Invisalign.
Keep reading to learn five things you should know about Invisalign if you are considering it as a treatment option for misaligned teeth.
Invisalign Aligners Are Custom Made
Invisalign aligners are manufactured based on a 3D model of your teeth by a specialized lab. This ensures they fit your teeth comfortably and helps make the treatment more predictable.
You Can Remove Them When Eating and Brushing
One of the main advantages of Invisalign aligners is that they are removable. This means that you will have no restrictions when it comes to your diet throughout the treatment. In addition, being able to take the aligners off when brushing means you will also be able to continue your normal oral hygiene routine.
Cleaning Your Invisalign Aligners Is Important
To maintain your Invisalign aligners and protect your oral health, you will have to regularly clean them with the help of a solution the dentist will prescribe. Avoid brushing your Invisalign aligners with a toothbrush as this might damage them.
Wearing the Aligners Takes Some Adjustment
Once you start your treatment with Invisalign, you may notice small changes in the way you speak. However, you will be able to adjust to wearing the aligners and return to speaking normally within a few days.
One of the best things about Invisalign compared to traditional braces is that it offers much faster results. You can see results in just a few months with Invisalign depending on the severity of your misalignment and provided you follow all the treatment recommendations thoroughly.
