Get Straighter Teeth With Invisalign Clear Braces
While looking at photographs of yourself with a wide smile, you may have noticed some imperfections that you are not thrilled about, such as crooked teeth. Even if you spend plenty of time brushing them to keep them white, you cannot force your teeth to be straight on your own. If you want a smile that is straight and beautiful, Invisalign clear braces are an option that you can discuss with the orthodontist during your very first trip to the office.
One of the reasons you may want to consider these clear braces is because then you do not have to worry about other people noticing that you are in the process of getting straighter teeth. If you were to go to the orthodontist and have metal braces applied to your teeth, they would be very noticeable to those around you. If you already an adult, you may feel embarrassed to walk around with bulky metal braces. Luckily, the Invisalign clear braces are an option that will work just as effectively at getting your teeth to shift until they are straight without the bulk or embarrassment.
There are several benefits associated with clear braces. The metal braces must get glued to the teeth, which makes it much more of a challenge to get the teeth clean. And, forget about using whitening strips and certain mouthwash products while you are wearing them. However, with the clear option, you will wear trays made from plastic that can easily be removed when you want to use whitening strips or even eat something.
If you decide that this is the best option for you and your teeth, it is important that you wear the plastic trays that you are given at the orthodontist. Before you start wearing the trays, the orthodontist will need to take some molds of your teeth to prepare the trays that are customized to fit specifically over your teeth. You should wear these trays for most of the day and night. In fact, the only time you should take them off is if you are brushing, rinsing, whitening, or eating and drinking. If you want straighter teeth at a faster pace, it is a good idea to leave them on for 21-23 hours per day.
Even if you start to feel some slight discomfort, it is perfectly normal. The discomfort occurs when the teeth begin to shift, which must happen so that they can move from a crooked position into a straight one. While you may feel uncomfortable wearing the trays at first, the pain will begin to subside and you will begin to notice your teeth changing their position.
Every 3-4 weeks, you need to head back to visit with your orthodontist. During that time, the orthodontist will make sure your teeth are moving correctly and doing so at a decent pace. You will also receive new trays to wear on your teeth. You must use the new trays each time you receive them because they are the most significant part of the Invisalign straightening plan.
Once you start to notice progress, you may start smiling more with your teeth showing. When your treatment is complete, you will have a straight smile that looks stunning. The amount of time you will need to wear these clear braces will depend on several factors, including how crooked your teeth were before you started and how quickly they begin shifting after treatment. You may end up with amazingly straight teeth in just 1-2 years.
When you do not feel confident or happy with your smile, there are straightening options available. Never assume you have to wear metal braces, especially not when the Invisalign clear braces are offered and work just as well.
