How Does Invisalign Work
Using a custom-made series of aligners created for you by your dentist, Invisalign’s aligner trays are created with smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth.
As you wear the aligners, they will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans for you.
With Invisalign, there are no metal brackets and no wires to tighten like traditional braces. Every two weeks, you pop in a new set of aligners until your treatment is complete.
The best part is that most people won’t know you’re straightening your teeth.
Health Benefits of Invisalign
Swollen, red gums can often be the result of having teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced. Unfortunately, these are also signs of periodontal disease. When teeth are properly aligned, it helps the gums fit more securely around the teeth, allowing for the strongest and healthiest defense against potential periodontal problems. That’s where Invisalign comes in. The comfortable and clear aligners gently and gradually begin to move your teeth into the proper position — without unsightly brackets and wires.
AVOIDS TOOTH DECAY
Tooth decay and gum disease are caused by bacteria. Left untreated, they can cause mouth sores, tender or bleeding gums, bad breath, and possible tooth loss.nvisalign aligners make daily oral hygiene easier, thus reducing the risk of possible problems. And correctly aligned teeth can also alleviate the issues that can be caused by an improper bite, speech or chewing difficulties, jaw problems, and increased wear on the tooth enamel. Invisalign effectively addresses all of these orthodontic issues, so you’ll have the confidence of a great smile and increase the likelihood of improved oral health.
One of the biggest challenges of having braces is removing all the food that gets trapped in the brackets and wires. This can often lead to plaque buildup and eventually tooth decay. With Invisalign, the aligners are removable, so it’s easy to continue brushing and flossing your teeth the way you normally do.
