Dental imperfections that sent you rushing to an orthodontist to have overcrowded, extra, or missing teeth corrected, although still available, are not sought after by many people. Presently nearly 20 percent of Americans seek treatments to fix any problems that don’t allow them to smile or maintain proper dental hygiene.

If you are in a similar situation, you too may worry about the types of braces for teeth correction you may have to wear if you visit an orthodontist for the remedy. Your thoughts will not be off the mark because you may have observed many teenagers and adults with traditional braces in their mouths showing off their embarrassment while wearing them. The sight could have made you cringe with fear about whether you to must undergo similar humiliation.

If, as an adult, you want to do away with the dental imperfections affecting your smile and oral hygiene, you can conveniently research for alternatives that are now available with Invisalign clear braces. However, you must get yourself assessed by the dentist in 90069 to determine the suitability for Invisalign treatment.

Have we made you curious to understand what Invisalign treatment is and how it can help you? Let us explain this revolutionary treatment to you for straightening teeth.

Invisalign is a braces free option for straightening teeth. If you want Invisalign treatment, you can obtain it from an Invisalign certified dentist without visiting an orthodontist who is specialists in straightening crooked and misaligned teeth. The Invisalign dentist assesses your suitability for the treatment by taking a series of images with a digital camera. If you are considered suitable for the treatment, you can begin the same a few weeks after your initial appointment with the dentist.

What Does Invisalign Treatment Involve

If you are suitable for the treatment, the manufacturers will send you a set of Invisalign clear braces in approximately two to three weeks that you must wear over your teeth for three weeks. Replacements are sent by Invisalign to you at the end of three weeks.

Wearing the clear braces on your teeth should not be a challenge as they fit snugly over them. You will experience some pressure when you begin the treatment or receive your fresh set of aligners from the manufacturer. Every batch of the aligner is different, moving your teeth incrementally to their desired and correct positions. Your treatment lasts for approximately 12 to 24 months, during which time you will need about 30 sets of aligners.

Will Invisalign Clear Braces Embarrass You?

You are unlikely to encounter any embarrassment when wearing Invisalign clear braces. Invisalign treatment is virtually invisible, and no one will notice the aligners on your teeth even when they are close to you. You don’t have to worry about any wires or brackets getting tangled when you indulge in some intimate activities.

The problem of maintaining proper dental hygiene does not require any attention. The aligners being removable from your teeth for eating and brushing your teeth make it convenient for you to maintain excellent oral hygiene throughout the treatment.

Invisalign treatment is virtually invisible, and you also have the flexibility of removing the aligners from your teeth for a couple of hours every day. The time should be sufficient for you to eat, maintain proper oral hygiene, and clean the aligners before replacing them on your teeth. You must ensure the aligners are not of your teeth for more than a couple of hours in the 24 hours. Extend the removal further, and you will not achieve the results you desire or may have to pay extra and continue your treatment longer. However, the question of Invisalign treatment embarrassing you does not arise at any time.

What Happens After You Begin the Treatment?

After you begin the treatment, you must adhere to the Invisalign dentist’s instructions without making any changes to them yourself. You must understand you are undergoing orthodontic treatment to enhance the appearance of your teeth and your oral hygiene. The improvements help you to have better-looking teeth and smile and make you more presentable.

Every six to eight weeks, you must visit the Invisalign dentist to assess your progress and receive a fresh set of aligners. The visits shouldn’t bother you because they don’t involve any tightening or adjusting wires or brackets used by traditional orthodontic treatments. Invisalign treatment is suitable as a cosmetic measure to straighten teeth discreetly if you are affected by minor orthodontic issues. However, if your dental imperfections are complicated, you may still have to rely on traditional orthodontists to correct them.
