Asking Your Orthodontist About Invisalign

Posted on 2/7/2022 by Bryan Neu
Asking Your Orthodontist About InvisalignAre you thinking about using Invisalign to straighten and align your teeth? What matters most is that your teeth be correctly aligned so that they may be as healthy as possible and help you live a healthy life. Jaw pain, over or underbite, protrusion or crowding, overlaying of teeth, excess or unequal gaps between teeth, and trouble brushing, or flossing is all symptoms that teeth are not correctly aligned, which can lead to cavities and even gum disease. Orthodontic therapy is frequently suggested to repair these abnormalities to promote optimal oral health. Invisalign treatment is one such alternative. Many people believe that Invisalign is a more "cosmetic" treatment option than conventional braces. However, Invisalign can be a fantastic solution for correcting a variety of orthodontic difficulties while staying almost unnoticeable to most individuals.

The Issues That Invisalign Can Solve

Many of the same difficulties can be corrected with Invisalign as with traditional braces, but not all, and the amount of correction required can also play a factor. Traditional brackets and wires, as well as equipment such as headgear, may be required to appropriately reposition teeth and align the jaw. In other circumstances, Invisalign aligners may be sufficient to address the problem. The appearance of teeth is not the main aspect in their appropriate alignment. Your teeth and jaw work together as a team. While your front teeth may seem straight, your rear teeth may not be correctly contacting or aligning. This can have an impact on your general dental health and, if left untreated, can lead to the loss of more teeth.

Length of Treatment

The typical period of treatment for traditional braces and Invisalign is commonly comparable, although several factors can impact this, including age, the amount of correction and realignment required, and how soon that sort of issue can be treated in general. Traditional braces and Invisalign both need regular visits for adjustments or the delivery of fresh aligner trays. Keeping up with such appointments is essential if you want to see benefits.
