Considering Invisalign? Here’s what you need to know.
The number of adults who get orthodontia has increased nearly 40% in the past twenty years. If you’re one of the growing numbers who desires a pretty smile but doesn’t want to suffer through a mouth of metal, you may have considered Invisalign. Here are some things to know about this specific orthodontic treatment.
The Invisalign system works by having your dentist fabricate a series custom plastic aligners that is replaced every four to six weeks by your dentist. Unlike traditional braces, these aligners won’t irritate your cheeks, and you can remove them for meals and brushing.
Invisalign can be removed but is best when worn for 20-22 hours every day.
You can eat and drink almost anything, and most people won’t know you’re wearing orthodontic straighteners.
As with all teeth straightening treatment, there is a risk of your teeth reverting to their original position over time. Talk to your dentist about whether he recommends a retainer as follow-up treatment. If so, be sure to wear it as directed to maintain the perfect smile you worked hard to create.
