Living With Invisalign Treatment

May 16, 2019

Many of you must have crooked teeth but don’t want to go for traditional braces. There is a perfect option: Invisalign. It does not use metal brackets or wires. It is:

  • Invisible
  • Perfectly blends with a smile

SmileUp Dentistry helps in overcoming alignment problems.

Who needs Invisalign?

Invisalign is an effective solution for people with crooked teeth. Generally, everyone does not have substantial dental problems. Braces are suitable for younger patients or particularly those who have alignment or bite problems.

Older people or working professionals want an orthodontic option that doesn’t give a sore mouth.

Not wearing trays with lengthen treatment

Invisalign can be removed anytime and anywhere to eat and clean your teeth. Dentists recommend wearing it for at least 20 hours a day for better results.

Many people have had traditional orthodontics but their teeth moved around. With Invisalign, teeth will move around if you do not wear a retainer.

What Patients Think About Invisalign

Invisalign is user-friendly but you need to be honest about treatments. Few things most dentists may not tell you about Invisalign-

  • The trays may be tight
  • The trays can be tight on your teeth in starting which may cause a little discomfort. You will get used to the trays within a few days.
  • You can hear the trays
  • Invisalign trays are invisible where few patients develop a lisp. It usually gets better with time.
  • The trays can stain
  • The trays are invisible and made from plastic, so they can stain.
  • You’ll have new trays every two weeks
  • Instead of having a wire tightening every few weeks, get a new tray every two weeks.
  • You might eat less
  • Many patients complain of losing weight because every time they need to remove trays to have a meal. It is recommended to brush your teeth after every meal.
  • Use a travel toothbrush
  • It is recommended to have a travel toothbrush all the time. Irregular brushing may lead to tooth decay or gum disease.
