Teeth that extend to the outside, are gapped, or are crowded is not a cosmetic problem. However, having poorly aligned teeth could cause jaw diseases. These, in turn, could lead to permanent diseases like TMJ or digestive diseases. Thankfully, there are teeth realignment treatments available that could correct these dental issues.
Invisalign is an alternative to the traditional metal braces that apply pressure to move teeth to their intended position. The aligners are replaced every two weeks to help teeth to move in the right direction.
First, consult with a dentist to check whether Invisalign is the right option for you or not. If both of you decide that Invisalign is the best treatment for you. talk about the cost and the procedure.
The second step involves getting a mold of your teeth. The mold is taken digitally without even touching the teeth. The dentist uses a special scanner that will take a 3D image of your teeth. The image is then sent to the Invisalign lab where the custom aligners are fabricated. The lab also checks the quality of the aligners before sending them to the dentist.
When the aligners are ready, make sure it fits your teeth correctly. The dentists will make you wear them and, in case of adjustments, they will do it. After the fitting is approved, the Invisalign process will begin. After the initial fitting, you have to visit the dentist for the follow-ups.
The tray fit should fit perfectly to ensure everything is in its place. You’ll also have to switch your aligners every two weeks to make sure the realignment progresses correctly. But there is no need for regular appointments.
The Invisalign process cost depends on the number of trays you will require for complete realignment and protection. And it could vary as per your unique requirements.
You can wear them the whole day, but you can remove them while brushing or flossing. The frequency of taking out the trays depends on you. But you need to wear Invisalign for at least 20 hours a day. Also, make sure to follow a healthy diet and go for regular dental checkups. If you’re a sports player, wear a mouth guard during playtime to avoid dental trauma.
