Straight Teeth In No Time: Invisalign
February 3, 2016
If you’re one of the many, lucky souls out there who have experienced the “brace face” stage, you know that it was something that you would prefer to only experience once in your life. Unless you have the built in retainer, something I wish I had gotten, you probably “forget” to wear them here and there. Surprisingly, those “here and there’s” definitely add up, causing your teeth to shift back to crookedness. The last thing I would ever want to do is get braces again, but with Invisalign, offered at Greater Las Vegas Dental, you’re able to shift your teeth back to a straight, perfect smile.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an invisible, removable, and comfortable aligner made to straighten your teeth without anyone knowing. This aligner gives you the security for straight teeth without the visible alignment. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is so high tech, made with a 3-D computer, so that you have the most accurate and effective results.
So, how does this work?
Every couple of weeks you will receive a set of aligners in which you can remove only to eat, drink, brush and floss your teeth. Once you start replacing the aligners, you will see noticeable differences week by week until they have lined up to the position the dentist has envisioned. To ensure that your teeth have been straightening as planned it is recommended that you visit the dentist every six weeks. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
Invisalign does not only embody an amazing smile, it promotes a healthy style o
f living. When your teeth are crowded and widely spaced, swollen red gums may be a problem leading to periodontal disease. Prop
erly aligned teeth allow the gums to fit more securely around the teeth, preventing any potential periodontal problems. Your teeth are also the windows to the health of your body because its alignment and gums say a lot about your overall quality of living; if you take care of both then you are probably taking care of the rest of your body.
