The Invisalign Process
The Invisalign method uses removable, clear plastic trays. You must wear the custom-fitted aligners for two weeks and 22 hours per day, before moving on to the next tray in the series. Gentle pressure will be applied to your teeth to gradually shift them into the proper place. Keep in mind; it is very important to wear your aligners as instructed. Taking them out too often could interfere with your progress and prolong treatment time.
During treatment, you should remove your aligners only for eating or cleaning your teeth. If you attempt to eat with your aligner in place, it could get damaged or stained. As a result, this could affect how the tray fits and alter the alignment of your teeth. Another bad move is to sip hot tea or coffee while wearing Invisalign. This could warp the aligner tray.
Invisalign Treatment Time
Most patients reach their desired results in about 18 months. However, it all depends on the severity of the case. You and your dentist must first determine if Invisalign is right for you. For that purpose, a comprehensive exam will be performed. Once the condition of your bite, teeth, and oral health overall is assessed, the best treatment plan can be created. If Invisalign will work for you, your aligners will be custom-made. Then, we will go over the procedure with you and review your individualized treatment plan.
During the first several days to a week, you may experience a little discomfort. This should subside as you adjust to wearing the trays. Invisalign treatment is much more comfortable than traditional brackets and wires. Call daily DENTAL & bracesbar today for a consultation.
