Why Are Invisible Aligners Getting So Popular For Adults?

Invisible aligners have become a popular choice for teeth straightening in recent years. Unlike traditional braces, invisible aligners are clear and nearly invisible once they are in place. This makes them a popular option for people who want to improve their smile without having to deal with the appearance of metal braces. In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits of invisible aligners and how they can help you achieve the perfect smile.

What are invisible aligners and how do they work?

Invisible aligners are clear plastic trays that gradually move your teeth into the desired position. They are virtually undetectable and much more comfortable than traditional metal braces. Each tray is custom-made to fit your mouth and applies a gentle force to your teeth, moving them little by little over time. You will need to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours a day, and you will need to change them every two weeks.

The benefits of invisible aligners over traditional braces

If you’re considering straightening your teeth but are worried about the appearance of traditional metal braces, invisible aligners may be a good option for you.

Here are some of the benefits of invisible aligners over traditional braces:

  • Invisible aligners are made from clear plastic, so they are much less noticeable than metal braces.
  • You can also remove them for eating, drinking, and brushing your teeth, so you don’t have to worry about food getting stuck in your braces.
  • Invisible aligners are also more comfortable than traditional braces. They don’t rub against your gums or cheeks, and they don’t require any adjustments.

How to get started with invisible aligners?

If you’re considering getting invisible aligners, the first step is to consult with an orthodontist or dentist who offers them. During your consultation, they’ll be able to determine if you’re a good candidate for invisible aligners and create a treatment plan specifically for you.

Once you’ve decided to move forward with invisible aligners, the next step is to get fitted for your custom aligners. This process usually starts with getting a digital impression of your teeth, which will be used to create your aligners.

After you’ve been fitted for your invisible aligners, you’ll need to wear them for at least 22 hours each day in order to see results. You’ll also need to clean them regularly and avoid eating or drinking anything other than water while wearing them.

What to expect during the treatment process?

After you and your dentist or orthodontist have decided that Invisalign is right for you, molds will be taken of your teeth. These molds are then sent to Align Technology, where computer imaging technology is used to create a series of clear aligners – each one slightly different from the next – that will gradually move your teeth into the desired position.

You will be able to see a virtual representation of how your teeth will look at each stage of treatment, so you’ll know exactly what to expect.

The average Invisalign treatment time is about 12 months, but can be shorter or longer depending on the severity of your case. You’ll need to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, taking them out only to eat, drink, brush and floss.

You’ll visit your dentist or orthodontist about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.

At the end of treatment, you’ll be given a retainer to wear at night to help keep your new, beautiful smile in place.

As you can see, the Invisalign treatment process is pretty straightforward. And since the aligners are practically invisible, you’ll be able to continue smiling throughout your treatment – no one will even know you’re wearing them! So if you’re looking for a way to straighten your teeth without metal brackets and wires, Invisalign may be the right solution for you.
