If you’re unhappy with the position of your teeth, it can harm the confidence you have in your smile. Not only that, but it could cause dental health complications by increasing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and jaw problems.
Invisalign is one of the world’s most popular clear aligner treatments. It’s used to fix lots of issues with the position of your teeth. It’s subtle, comfortable, and convenient.
But it’s easy to make assumptions about Invisalign. After all, how could Invisalign be as good as fixed braces? With assumptions come myths, and if you look around online, you’re sure to find plenty of misinformation out there.
In this guide, we’ll correct many myths and assumptions about Invisalign, leaving you with clear and straight facts!
Because Invisalign is so simple, it’s easy to assume it can’t fix complex problems. The truth is that it can help with most issues with misaligned teeth. We use Invisalign to straighten crooked teeth, reduce overcrowding, and close gaps.
Invisalign is also useful for correcting several bite issues too. This is where your upper and lower teeth don’t align.
It’s often assumed that this type of problem can only be corrected using fixed appliances. However, Invisalign is often just as effective.
Your Invisalign treatment will involve wearing a series of clear aligners. Each new aligner applies force across your teeth, further progressing your adjustment.
It’s well known that if you wear fixed braces, food can often get stuck under the wire and around the brackets. Without careful and thorough cleaning, you could increase the risk of tooth decay.
It’s easy to assume that just because you can take your aligner out to eat, brushing your teeth and cleaning your aligner isn’t as important. It is. Because your aligner is held against your teeth all day, it’s vital to keep everything as clean as possible.
Alignment issues affect many people of all ages. Although it’s often teenagers that get teeth straightening treatments, Invisalign is effective for adults too. It’s never too late to get the smile you’ve always wanted.
Your Invisalign treatment is carefully planned using the latest digital dental technology. The results are predictable. But you’ll only see these results if you wear your aligner as prescribed.
We suggest wearing your aligner for around 22 hours a day. Your aligner is comfortable and discreet, meaning you can wear it day and night without you or anyone else noticing it. That gives you two hours to eat and brush your teeth.
There are several online or mail-order aligner treatments on the market. You might think that this option is great as there’s no need to visit the dentist, but we’ll thoroughly assess your smile, provide support, and tweak your treatment as required.
Seeing a dentist before, during, and after your treatment will help ensure you achieve the best results.
You may worry that wearing an aligner will cause you to lisp. When you first wear your aligner, you may have a mild speech impediment; however, this problem is usually very brief. As you get used to wearing your aligner, your speech will return to normal.
You may experience similar changes whenever you change your aligner. Again, this is temporary.
