The Benefits of Invisalign

Are you searching for a straight smile in a short time? Are you delaying your smile correction due to the appearance of traditional braces? Then you are searching for the newly introduced orthodontic treatment technique called Invisalign. To learn more about this procedure, visit your Lexington, KY, dentists, Dr. Pada Chalothorn, and Dr. William Cartee of TLC Dentistry.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a strong aligner that can push on specific parts of your teeth and move them to the desired place. The appliances are made of clear plastic. That makes them virtually unnoticeable. Using Invisalign, your dentists can correct many dental conditions, like improperly aligned, overlapped, or spaced teeth. 

Invisalign treatment process

At the beginning of the procedure, you will receive your first set of aligners. Your Lexington, KY, dentists will ask you to wear this set for two weeks, 22 hours per day. In the following two weeks, your dentist will give you another set. The aligners will be changed every two weeks until the end of the treatment. Your teeth will keep moving until you get your desired smile. The duration of treatment depends on your case complexity. Usually, the process takes nine to fifteen months. This period is brief compared with the traditional braces, which may take years to give the desired outcomes.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign system provides comfort. The plastic that is forming the aligners is soft without any metal wires or sharp parts. These sharp parts are seen in the metal braces and will irritate the soft tissues in your mouth. Another benefit for Invisalign is that the aligners are removable. Patients can remove the aligners to eat or to clean them. That makes eating easier without the fear of food stuck in your braces. Also, this feature of Invisalign helps the patients to maintain the brushing and flossing routine without the need for special tools.
