Clear aligner system
Invisalign is a clear aligner system. This means it works using clear thermoplastic aligners as an alternative to the brackets and archwires that are attached to the front of your teeth for traditional teeth straightening. They are a removable form of orthodontic treatment, and this means that they are highly convenient and do not affect your daily activities. You can wear the aligners, and no one will even know that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. This is because as the name suggests, Invisalign aligners are almost invisible in the mouth. They are an excellent choice for those who do not want to draw further attention to their mouth but are unhappy with the appearance of the smile and want to improve the alignment of their teeth.
Prior to the year 2000, most people avoided orthodontic treatment because braces can be highly visible in the mouth; however, the Millennials have been born into a significantly advanced era of digital technology where teeth straightening is more discreet than ever before, almost invisible!
Invisalign aligners are designed and manufactured using the latest in digital technology. Each aligner is individually tailored to fit your teeth with accuracy and precision and to apply enough pressure to move them by approximately 0.25 to 0.3 mm. They work as a sequence, and after approximately two weeks, you can move on to the next aligner in the series.
Looking after your aligners
You must take care of these aligners. They can be taken out of your mouth as necessary. It is important that when you do, you take them out carefully and replace them carefully so that you do not damage them or scratch them in any way. It is important that when the aligners are out of your mouth, you monitor how long they have been out so that you keep them in the mouth for at least 20 to 22 hours a day. It is also important to maintain an excellent dental hygiene routine to prevent bad breath, tooth decay or gum disease. You need to make sure you clean the aligners carefully as well and keep them in the case when they are out of your mouth so as to avoid damaging them or losing them. The treatment itself can take as little as 6 months or 12 to 18 months, depending on your dental requirements and the extent of malocclusion that you begin with.
