How does Invisalign work?

Unlike the traditional brackets and wires used in conventional treatments for teeth straightening, Invisalign uses a set of clear plastic aligner trays to straighten your teeth gradually but certainly. You’ve to wear your aligner trays somewhat like a mouthguard. Each tray is tentatively worn for about 2 weeks and then, you shift to the next one in the series. This way, the Invisalign treatment straightens your teeth a little at a time. In order to ensure desired results, you must wear each aligner tray for at least 20 to 22 hours a day, every day.

How is Invisalign different from conventional braces?

The traditional braces and wires are made from metal while Invisalign trays are made from clear, transparent plastic. Thus, they remain invisible in your mouth. The plastic aligners can be easily removed whenever you want. Thus, unlike the traditional teeth straightening treatment, Invisalign allows you to brush and floss your teeth along with enjoying all your favorite foods and drinks during the treatment.

How long does Invisalign take to provide result?

Invisalign treatment lasts anywhere between 6 to 18 months, depending on the degree of your misalignment. In comparison to conventional teeth straightening, this time frame is much shorter.

How much inconvenience does Invisalign create?

The smooth plastic aligners are convenient to wear, unlike the metal wires and braces that are likely to cause irritation on your gums and the lips. The majority of Invisalign patients, in fact, forget they are wearing the trays after 2/3 days of commencement of the treatment.
