It’s no secret that Invisalign is the best way to straighten your teeth without wearing braces. But did you know that a lot is happening behind the scenes during your treatment? And it isn’t just about aligning your teeth—it’s about getting them to stay in place, too. We’ll explain everything you need to know about how long your treatment will last and why it matters so much!
What are Invisalign Treatments?
Invisalign is a series of clear, removable aligners that you wear to straighten your teeth gradually. Invisalign uses advanced 3D imaging technology to create a unique treatment plan for each patient. The result is a more comfortable alternative to traditional metal braces with the same great results!
How long do you wear Invisalign?
Invisalign is a series of custom-made, removable aligners worn over your teeth. Invisalign is a great way to straighten your teeth without wearing metal braces.
When you get Invisalign, your dentist will determine how long you need each set of aligners by taking an impression of the shape and size of your mouth. Then they’ll use this information to create a computerized model of the final result when the treatment is complete (the “final” result). Each set will have been designed specifically for those specific stages for they all work together seamlessly as one long journey towards perfect alignment!
Why do you need to wear Invisalign for a specified amount of time?
The Invisalign training manual states that you should wear your aligners for 22-23 hours daily. This means that you are supposed to remove them only when eating and brushing your teeth, which is why it is so important to maintain good oral hygiene habits while using Invisalign.
The reason why it’s recommended that you wear your aligners for such long periods is that this allows them enough time to reshape the contours of your teeth and create an ideal bite. By doing this over an extended period, we can ensure that there will be no relapse after treatment (i.e., when you stop wearing the aligners).
How do you know if your Invisalign treatment is working?
- You will be able to see the results. Invisalign aligners are clear and removable, so you can take them out of your mouth to check your progress.
- You’ll feel the difference! As your teeth move into place, they may feel sore or sensitive–this is normal!
- You’ll hear the difference, too: your speech will improve, as well as the way food sounds when you chew it (and don’t worry about talking with Invisalign in!).
A lot is going on inside your mouth to straighten teeth, but the results will be amazing once your treatment ends!
The Invisalign system is a series of clear, removable aligners that gently move your teeth into place. Each aligner is made from a special type of plastic that’s custom-printed with thin lines and shapes to guide the movement of your teeth.
Your doctor will tell you when to start wearing each new set of aligners based on their progress. For example, if they’re moving well enough in one month or so (it varies), you might advance to the next stage every two weeks instead of every three weeks as planned–or even sooner!
Invisalign can be a great option for people who want straight teeth but don’t want to spend years in braces. While it may take some time to wear them, Invisalign is an effective way to achieve your smile goals!
