|What Can Invisalign® Do For Your Smile?
Our teeth are important parts of our lives, whether we think so or not. After all, you use your teeth for some of the activities most vital to your daily life. From eating to speaking, ensuring that you have healthy and strong teeth is one of the best ways to ensure that you lead a life that is overall healthy, both in body and in oral health. There are a variety of treatments and procedures that you might find yourself needing over time, but few of them are as simple and as beneficial as using Invisalign aligners.
What are Invisalign Aligners?
Invisalign aligners work to straighten and reposition your teeth without the use of traditional wires and brackets. The aligners themselves are clear and are made of hard plastics. They are custom-fitted to your mouth and to your teeth to ensure that they fit well while moving your teeth to their new alignment. Thanks to the current technological advancements, Viseh Sundberg, DDS can use Invisalign to help treat a broad range of dental issues and concerns, such as underbite, overbite, gapped teeth, overly crowded teeth, and more.
How do Invisalign Aligners Work?
Invisalign aligners work by making use of 3-D imaging technology to help plan out a comprehensive treatment plan that is unique to each patient. This plan will show the initial position of your teeth and then go through stages. Each stage will show the progress that the aligners should make in realigning your teeth, and then the final result will also be shown. Once this treatment plan has been generated, you can begin treatment. You will use Invisalign liners that are made of strong, clear plastic to provide almost invisible guidance for your teeth. You wear each “stage” for about two weeks, and then you swap it out for the next stage. This continues until the treatment has been finished and your teeth are in their new locations.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign Aligners?
With Invisalign, you can drink and eat what you want. You no longer have to avoid "sticky" foods that could get stuck in your braces, for example, because the trays can easily be removed and then replaces when you are finished. You can also floss and brush as you normally would. There are brackets or wires to adjust or to cause irritation to your mouth, which means that you will spend less time in the office getting adjustments.
