If a dream is a wish your heart makes when you’re fast asleep, then it’s time to wake up, smell the coffee and take action! Beautifully aligned smiles don’t have to be the stuff of fairytales; you really can have a smile to be proud of (with no kissing frogs required!). However, you don’t need to spoil the magic for everyone else! By wearing Invisalign’s clear aligners, people won’t know you are realigning your teeth, and if you don’t tell them, they never will. All they will see is that your teeth look better and better during the average 6 to 18 months that treatment takes, until you reach the grand finale – hey, presto! So, stop dreaming, and read about the reality of having Invisalign in your life.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a method for realigning teeth that uses clear aligners. Aligners are made of durable and transparent plastic that can be worn over the teeth, so they are virtually invisible to everyone else. They push the teeth carefully into the desired position over some time to give you the smile you have been dreaming of. The aligners are comfortable to wear as they can be made bespoke for your mouth. Using iTero technology, an Invisalign dentist will be able to scan your mouth to get the exact measurements needed for your aligners. From this, a 3D animation will also be generated for you to show you what your teeth will look like after treatment. It can be a really motivating thought to know that the dream can be a reality!
Why choose Invisalign?
For those who want to have their teeth realigned discreetly, Invisalign is for you. However, aside from discretion and comfort, there are other benefits to choosing this method of realigning your teeth. Invisalign aligners may be removed for up to 2 hours a day, which means that you can have your cake and eat it, without your aligners in your mouth! Before eating or drinking, the aligners can be removed, so you won’t need to clean them afterwards either. Brushing and flossing your teeth can continue as normal as well, because you won’t have any wires or brackets in the way to contend with, reducing the risk of developing any complications with cavities or gum disease. Invisalign offers flexibility for the patient that is celebrated by the millions who have had this treatment.
What do I need to do next?
If you are keen to find out more about whether or not Invisalign is the right treatment for your specific needs, you will need to find a dentist who offers this treatment and book in for an initial consultation. During this session, your dentist will examine your mouth thoroughly and may take x-rays of your mouth to determine what your alignment needs are. They will then be able to present you with the treatment options, and you should ask as many questions as you need in order to make a fully informed decision about the right route for you. If Invisalign is an option, become the prince or princess in your own fairy tale, and get ready for the royal treatment and the magic of Invisalign.
