Invisalign Richmond – A brief insight

Created with 3D imaging technology, Invisalign is a teeth aligner that can help in perfecting the shape of crooked teeth without any hassle. They are made from a thermoplastic material. They can be removed with ease, and you won’t have to be bound with them for years. Moreover, since they are invisible, you can now say goodbye to the never-ending questions and weird glances. Think of Invisalign as your traditional metal braces nut without the metal, the pain, or the discomfort.

How does it work?

Sure, it all sounds great, but how will some clear braces help straighten your teeth if they are not jammed to your teeth for a few good years? We know it might sound a bit hard to believe, but it is very much possible. When the inspection and sizing are completed, patients can wear a set of the Invisalign teeth aligners. This will be done for about two weeks, after which they can proceed on to the next step. The next step will include a newer set of aligners which will be fitted. There are several sets in the series, and each time a fitting is done; the teeth will be repositioned to get them straight.

The process should take somewhere around 10 to 15 months to come to completion. After every six weeks, the dentist offering Invisalign Richmond at The Practice at Mortlake will be monitoring the progress.

Invisalign Richmond FAQs

The key benefit of Invisalign is its appearance. Being practically invisible, patients undergoing Invisalign in Richmond feel much more comfortable knowing that the brace can barely be seen. Patients are often worried about discomfort when it comes to straightening treatments, but with Invisalign, you can barely feel them as they’re shaped to the precise measurements of your teeth and gums. This means you’ll only feel mild tightness when you get a new aligner. Using 3D technology, our dentists are able to show you what your teeth will look like once you’ve finished your course of treatment. Also, because you can take out the aligner when you need to, you have a better understanding of your progress and will have a clear idea of what the final result will be.
Invisalign isn’t necessarily more effective than metal braces, but it is a lot quicker to see results. Most patients don’t even have to wait a year for their new smile to be revealed. Traditional braces come with restrictions when it comes to what you can eat and drink. However, with Invisalign, you can maintain your current diet as long as you remove the aligners when you eat and drink anything other than still, clear water. With Invisalign, you will be sent the aligners when it’s time to swap out the previous one. With this, there are far fewer visits to the dentist. Unlike traditional braces that require visits to the orthodontist at least every two months for tightening.

Looking after your aligners is key when it comes to a successful Invisalign treatment. You must wear the aligners for at least 22 hours a day, removing them to eat and drink anything other than still, clear water. If you leave them in while eating, it can stain and damage them, reducing the comfort levels and making them much more noticeable. To clean them, use a gentle toothbrush and mild toothpaste to reduce the saliva and bacteria built up throughout the day. You can also soak your aligners in recommended cleaning crystals to keep the aligners clean and bacteria-free. When you’re not wearing your aligners, you should keep them in the protective case provided. Maintaining a proper oral hygiene routine is also important. If you have any questions about how to improve this, ask your dentists during your initial consultation.
