How Invisalign Can Help You Achieve a Better Smile and a Better You

Invisalign is helping to change the lives of so many people. Seen as the 'adult' alternative to braces, Invisalign straightens your teeth 'invisibly', helping you to regain your confidence, and achieve your dreams.

Having a beautiful smile can make people far more attractive, increases their chances of landing their dream jobs, and overall, ensures that they feel more confident, happy and healthy.  It is of little wonder, then, that individuals who may not have had braces during their childhood years, or whose teeth have moved since, are turning to Invisalign in droves to gain, or bring back, their perfect smile. 

So how does Invisalign work? The first step is to visit your provider, who will ensure that you are eligible for the treatment. Although most cases can be treated, some extreme cases of misaligned teeth may need mixed treatment (ie. a combination of braces and Invisalign, or tooth removal and Invisalign). Your provider will assess your eligibility by taking an impression of your teeth.

After your eligibility has been confirmed, a detailed treatment plan will be developed exclusively for you using Invisalign's ClinCheck system, a virtual 3D system that charts how your teeth will move over the course of your treatment. ClinCheck will also enable you to see how your teeth will look at the end of the treatment.

After your teeth's journey has been mapped through their system, you will receive a customized set of aligners to wear. They will be completely invisible to ensure that the only person who knows you are wearing them is you. You will change aligners on 2 week intervals, ensuring that your teeth move slowly and gradually into their new position. Some discomfort may be felt when you first change to a new aligner, but usually the process is entirely pain-free for clients. 

Ideally, the aligners are designed to wear day and night, and you would take them out only when you need to eat or brush your teeth. However, one of the great benefits of the aligners is as they are so easily removed, if you need to take a day or night's break for any reason, you can easily take them out. You will also be required to occasionally visit your dentist for a check up, to ensure that your teeth are on track to perfection.

If you're looking for a dream job, a new relationship, or better oral health, make an appointment with an Invisalign provider such as Dr Peter Vaughan Specialist Orthodontist.
