If You’re Shy to Smile Because of Your Teeth, Try Invisalign Treatment

A smile can be a tool for socializing in a business conference, it can end wars and start a romance. But misaligned teeth and crooked teeth make it hard to smile with confidence. While the intent of men is not easily determined by superficial means, a sincere smile can take you far in life. It’s established that first impressions are important in forming social bonds and creating trust between you and your audience. But if you’re too shy to smile because your teeth aren’t perfectly aligned, your first impression could come off as stand-offish and cold.

That’s where Invisalign comes to your aid, as a discrete and chic solution to straighten your teeth in less than a year. In the following, we’ll give you an idea of what Invisalign treatment is, and how it can help you flash a confident smile.

Invisalign is the solution you’re looking for in your dreams

Metal braces are a classic form of orthodontics treatment known in pop culture, mostly associated with pain and discomfort, and usually a favorite subject for school bullies in older movies. That is why a lot of people rather keep their partially misaligned teeth instead of going through the trouble of metal braces. With Invisalign, there are no constant pains or issues with food getting stuck in the wires. it takes little time to prepare and is easily fitted on your teeth, unlike the excruciating pain of having metal braces put into your teeth.

Aligned Teeth Mean Better Dental Hygiene

Having straighter teeth is correlated with healthier teeth and gums, and is often considered one of the natural advantages that some people have against the threat of tooth decay. Invisalign is now another option along with traditional braces and porcelain veneers that can help you realign your teeth to perfection. As the name suggests the key feature of Invisalign braces is that they are “invisible”. They aren’t completely invisible to the eye, but they are clear and see-through, so they don’t stick out like a sore thumb.

How Do I Start Invisalign Treatment?

As with another dental procedure, once you have booked a consultation visit, the orthodontist will talk to you about the basics of Invisalign. It’s important to know, only a registered orthodontist can perform Invisalign treatment. They will then use a 3D scanner to scan your mouth and current dental alignment and gums to generate a 3D model of your mouth. The procedure is significantly faster than previous scanning technologies, taking less than 3 minutes in most cases. This model is then sent to the Invisalign Laboratory for assessment. The laboratory then manufactures a set of Invisalign braces based on the details of your scan, and the preferred alignment pattern presented by your orthodontist. The lab will send the braces back to your orthodontist and you will get a call from us, proposing a time for your first fitting. If there are any issues with how the Invisalign braces fit your teeth and gum, the orthodontist can figure out the design issue and request a redesigned set of braces that will fit your teeth perfectly.

Invisalign is the future of orthodontic treatment

Another interesting feature of Invisalign is the smile simulator, where you can see how your smile will turn out. It provides a 3D rendering of how your teeth will gradually change shape over the course of your Invisalign treatment.

After your first fitting, depending on the details of your treatment, you will have to change your braces almost every two weeks. The new braces will be slightly different than the last one, to shift your teeth’ position further. Your doctor will let you know how many aligners you will have to go through, as it is case-specific.

Is Invisalign Treatment effective over time?

One of the worries with traditional braces is your teeth shifting back into their old position because of your natural jaw bone alignment. Unlike traditional braces where there is no real analytical data regarding the alignment process, and despite the faster process of treatment, Invisalign aligners are designed to deliver long-term changes. However, due to the rather recent introduction of Invisalign to the market, there is not enough statistical evidence and studies to support the claims.

But based on the available customer feedback, it seems Invisalign has enjoyed more support from the clients when it comes to the effectiveness of clear braces. With the recent altercations to the alignment process, many improvements have been made in how the realignment is completed. One of these improvements is a new pressure measurement technique that allows for a more efficient distribution of force on the teeth.

What can I do to have a more effective Invisalign treatment?

One of the most important tips that dentists give you after your first fitting is keeping the Invisalign aligners on your teeth for as long as possible. It’s generally recommended to keep them on at all times, to prevent your teeth from reverting back to their previous position.

You should only remove your aligners when you’re eating or drinking, and course to clean them. This brings us to other important secrets to keeping your braces in good condition. Keeping your braces clean will be a key part of your dental hygiene routine for the duration of your Invisalign treatment. If your invisible braces aren’t regularly clean, they could infect your gums and damage your teeth.

So make sure you take extra care to clean your aligners. If you use hot water the plastic may get deformed, so use lukewarm water. You don’t want warped aligners, as they will no longer have the effect they were intended to have both due to the loss of integrity and the new deformed shape.
