Our dentists in Orléans describe what can be expected before, during, and after Invisalign treatment. With Invisalign, you can achieve a straighter smile.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a set of clear aligners designed specifically for you to achieve straighter teeth without the need for conventional braces made of wires and metal.
With Invisalign, you'll wear a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, allowing for small and gradual adjustments to be made to your teeth over time.
Your dentist will evaluate your unique requirements and determine the duration of your treatment plan. You'll have the flexibility to remove your customized aligners while eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.
During your treatment, here are 5 noticeable changes you can expect to see in your smile:
Improved Cleanliness During & After Treatment
Because Invisalign trays are removable, you can remove the trays when you are ready to brush and floss. You'll be able to ensure you brush and floss all your teeth thoroughly during treatment.
Your Invisalign clear aligners can also be cleaned - just rinse them or clean them with the Invisalign cleaning crystals. This will help you maintain healthy teeth and gums while your teeth are straightened.
Before starting your treatment, your teeth may have gaps, be crooked, or be misaligned. Invisalign can effectively address each of these issues, whether they occur individually or in combination.
The outcome of your treatment will vary based on your unique treatment plan. However, if you follow the prescribed treatment plan, you can expect to see a noticeable improvement in the alignment of your teeth when you look in the mirror.
Invisalign can help straighten your teeth and reduce gaps between them. It can also enhance your bite. Regardless of the specific issues addressed during treatment, you will likely feel confident and eager to share your new, straighter smile with everyone you meet.
Better Dental Health
Provided you wear your Invisalign clear aligners properly and only remove them when necessary to eat, drink or when cleaning your teeth, every one of your teeth will receive just the right amount of pressure for the right amount of time. The total number of aligners you'll wear will depend on the nature of your misalignment. Due to straighter teeth, you'll benefit from better dental health and healthier gums.
No More Crowded or Misaligned Teeth
Misaligned or crowded teeth can affect how you look and harm your oral health. Invisalign is a solution to improve misalignments. The key to achieving positive results lies in sticking to the customized treatment plan created by your dentist.
Instead of moving all your teeth together, each stage of the treatment focuses on a few teeth at a time. It's crucial to follow your dentist's plan and wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours daily, regardless of the specific issue being addressed.
After a successful treatment, your crowded or misaligned teeth will become straight, allowing you to display a more aligned smile.
Increased Comfort Level
Because Invisalign clear aligners are made from smooth plastic, they can be quite comfortable to wear. Plus, thanks to the transparent plastic, the casual observer will be hard-pressed to see them as they discreetly straighten your teeth.
