If you have alignment issues with your teeth, multiple treatment options are available. There are a lot of people who have and are using braces, and they are a rite of passage for many teenagers. You need to ensure your teeth are correctly aligned because this can improve the appearance of your smile while also making your teeth easier to clean. Instead of going with traditional braces, Invisalign aligners for crowded teeth could be a better fit for you.
Invisalign clear aligners use a series of trays to move your teeth gradually. Before the treatment process starts, your dentist will use specialized technology to create a model of your teeth. That way, the aligner trays can be customized to match the shape of your smile, ensuring they work as well as possible. When you put the first tray in, it should fit your teeth perfectly.
The dentist will explain how to use the trays to move your teeth to the right spots. Like braces, Invisalign clear aligners apply gentle pressure to your teeth to move them slowly into the correct locations. One of the significant advantages of using Invisalign trays is that you can take them out to eat and drink. You can also take the trays out of your mouth to clean them regularly. The longer the trays are in your mouth, the faster your teeth will move into the correct locations. Therefore, you should ensure the trays are in your mouth unless you are eating or brushing your teeth.
When given a set of Invisalign aligner trays, you need to change them every few weeks. Eventually, your teeth will move as far as they can with that set of trays. Then, you will need to swap that tray out for the next one in the series. Compared to traditional braces, you do not have to return to the office often to get your teeth checked by an orthodontist. But, if you have questions about whether your teeth are moving correctly, it would be our pleasure to help you. Simply give us a call to make an appointment.
