Just because you have crooked, crowded, or overlapping teeth, doesn’t mean that metal braces are the only option to correct the alignment of your smile. In fact, we can create a set of aligners that are barely noticeable, and can be removed too! In today’s blog, your Rancho Cucamonga, CA, dentist will look at the benefits of Invisalign® aligners.
Crafting Invisalign® Aligners
Each set worn is custom-made specifically for your smile, and designed to help further the process of repositioning uneven teeth. We create them based on detailed impression and images we take of your entire smile. They will be made from a BPA-free acrylic material that is completely clear and barely noticeable when worn.
Correcting Your Misalignment
When your custom aligners are ready, you begin wearing a set for about 20 to 22 hours each day, only removing them for brief periods to brush, floss, eat, and of course, clean and soak the aligners. After about two weeks, you move on the next set in the series. Gradually, each set begins to correct your misalignment. The total treatment time will depend on the cause and extent of your misalignment, but usually takes about a year for adults, and up to 18 months for teen patients. With a straighter smile comes a lowered risk of complications like tooth decay, gum disease, TMJ disorder, and bruxism (teeth grinding). You also enjoy more even teeth, obtaining a smile you cannot wait to show the world!
When You can Remove Your Clear Braces
Being removable makes this treatment option very unique compared to metal braces. You don’t have to change your diet or avoid certain foods, as there is no worry about them becoming stuck in your orthodontics, you simply take out each set before you eat. Being removable also makes the process of brushing and flossing much easier, as you no longer need to work around metal braces. Finally, as long as you wear them exactly as the dentist prescribes, you may also be able to remove them prior to special occasions, such as dates, job interviews, or graduations.
