Is Invisalign Faster Than Braces?
Straightening your teeth is easy when you make use of an orthodontic treatment specifically meant for you. Overcrowded and crooked teeth aren’t just unsightly and may cause you to feel embarrassed about your smile, but they cause issues with keeping your teeth healthy and clean. If you are looking for an invisible way to straighten your teeth, Invisalign may be the best option for you.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses clear aligner trays that force pressure onto the teeth. This pressure pushes the teeth into more uniform alignment so that they look straighter. You can benefit from Invisalign whether you’re an adult or teenager. These clear trays require absolutely no metal brackets or wiring to be worn during the course of treatment. Many patients find that Invisalign is more comfortable to wear because they are completely removable.
Is it Faster than Braces?
Invisalign tends to be faster than braces because the trays are customized during the course of treatment. Every few weeks, you will come back into the office to have new aligners made just for you. These aligners change during treatment so that they are always working to improve the look of your teeth. Invisalign can straighten your teeth quicker than traditional braces. Most patients are finished with treatment in just one to two years while traditional braces can take up to three years to yield significant results. For this reason, patients find Invisalign to be a quicker and more convenient option for individuals wanting a beautiful, flawless smile.
What to Expect with Treatment
The treatment typically begins with a consultation that allows us to get to know you and your own unique smile needs. We then take impressions of your teeth and use these to make your very own aligner trays. You will wear these trays for about 22 hours each day and only remove them when brushing or eating. You will then come back into the office in a few weeks so that we can make brand new aligners for you. We will give you information on what to expect with your Invisalign treatment when coming in for appointments. Once treatment is finished, a retainer can be worn nightly to maintain your results to keep your teeth looking beautiful and straight.
