How Does Invisalign Work?
- Posted on: Jun 15 2018
We waved “Bye bye” to braces years ago and are still so impressed with everything that Invisalign has to offer our patients here at Massa Dental Center. Gone are the days where you had to have a full face of metal to feel like you really did go to high school. The best part about Invisalign is how it’s given so many more people the option of correcting a smile that they’re not 100% happy with.
Don’t believe us? Ask around. We see so many adults looking to straighten their crowded or crooked teeth and we’re so happy we can offer them a great solution. Keep reading for the most important details about Invisalign to see if these miracle trays are right for you!
This is by far our number one favorite part of Invisalign. Traditional braces are very visible, and that alone can deter a lot of people from correcting a smile they’re not happy with. Whether you don’t want to look too young, have an important wedding you need to attend, or if you are a businessperson who just can’t draw too much attention to yourself while giving a presentation; Invisalign might be perfect for you.
Traditional braces require adjustments around every six weeks. But, because Invisalign works in a different way, you’ll get new trays every two weeks. That may sound like a lot of visits, but they’re short and keep your progress steady.
When eating, brushing your teeth, flossing, or if you feel like you must take out your trays, you can. Results are best when trays are worn for at least 22 hours a day, so avoid taking them out for non-essential reasons. Your smile will thank you!
Traditional braces can be hard on teeth, not because of what they do, but because of how people react to them. It’s quite common to see patients unable to properly adapt their brushing and oral hygiene techniques to traditional braces. Thankfully, with Invisalign you can brush and floss as normal.
We don’t need to take impressions with the messy goop you’re probably too familiar with. Instead, we use state-of-the-art scanners to make 3D images of your teeth. Then, we map out what teeth need to move and where they need to go. Using this technology, we can show you what your smile will look like on your first visit!
