Transparent Plaque Treatment (Invisalign)
As the number of adults seeking orthodontic treatment has increased, aesthetics has become a major concern. Even though traditional teeth alignment procedures and fixed appliances provide important tooth movement advantages, they can be regarded as the options that lack appeal. The Transparent Plaque Treatment (Invisalign) technique is a specially designed appliance that is made from thin transparent plastic material to move teeth in small increments.
In this orthodontic treatment, patients don’t need to use braces for their misaligned teeth. Invisalign plaques are transparent and produced to fit one’s teeth perfectly, which make them hard to recognize at first glance. Only people who look at your teeth very carefully can see the Invisalign. This treatment technique can be used both for children and adults. Suppose you don’t want to wear braces for a long period due to aesthetic reasons. In that case, Invisalign can provide you the opportunity of having the same result with braces without changing your appearance.
Advantages of Invisalign
It is a safe and widely used treatment concept for children, adolescents, and adults.
As braces are stable, you cannot remove them for a special occasion such as weddings, photoshoots, or an important meeting, while you can remove Invisalign whenever you want to.
Most of the adults do not want to fix their misaligned teeth as they don’t want to use braces for a long period. As they aren’t easily recognized, Invisalign has become one of the most preferred orthodontic treatments.
As you remove your Invisalign while you are eating and drinking, there is no restriction for food or beverages. While using braces, you should be very careful about not biting something hard like an apple with your front teeth as it might harm your braces.
While using braces, you might need to use special equipment to brush your teeth while flossing much harder. It can be said that using Invisalign promotes better oral health.
More Details On Transparent Plaque Treatment
As your teeth start to move slowly in your mouth, you might feel pain during the first few days. Then you’ll get used to the feeling and don’t feel pain at all. Each time you renew your Invisalign, this process goes back to the beginning as a cycle. Most of the people who use Invisalign do not complain about the pain as it’s bearable. If you feel pain, you can also take painkillers, which are very effective in stopping the pain.
Depending on your teeth and the complexity of their case, this process can even take six months or more than two years. It’s all about how your teeth are placed in your mouth before starting this procedure. Another thing is, you should be wearing your Invisalign 20 to 22 hours a day for a positive effect.
Once your treatment process is over, you’ll be using your natural teeth as before. Moreover this, you’ll feel much more comfortable than before as your teeth are in perfect harmony together. If you’ve had an implant or dental filling during the treatment process due to other factors, you’ll only need to be careful about those renewed teeth so you can keep them safe and use them as your natural teeth.
