If you think metal braces are the only appliance capable of fixing your alignment flaws, you may be less excited to see orthodontic improvements. While bracket-and-wire braces can lead to some impressive smile corrections, people sometimes worry about what their daily life will be like when they are in place. At our Rochester, MN dental office, we work with patients who want orthodontic improvements by providing Invisalign aligners. Adults in professional environments and teen patients in need of orthodontic improvements can welcome this discreet appliance more readily. Invisalign users can also be glad to have an orthodontic treatment option that does not require the placement of a fixed appliance on their teeth for an extended period of time!
Learning More About Invisalign Clear Aligners
Invisalign aligners are designed to make a person’s orthodontic treatment time easier by avoiding some of the issues with metal braces that can frustrate patients. While metal braces have to be permanently set on the front of your teeth for the duration of your adjustment, Invisalign appliances can be removed by you. As a result, you will not have to question how your orthodontic work might affect your ability to eat, or protect your smile against oral bacteria. You can also be glad to see that Invisalign appliances are difficult to see, so you can smile and speak confidently, and without concern that someone is paying more attention to your braces than you might like.
Starting Your Invisalign Treatment
Before your Invisalign treatment begins, detailed measurements of your bite are needed. Rather than taking measurements by asking you to bite into a plaster mold, our practice uses an iTero digital scanner to study your bite. This can make you more comfortable, and the results gathered can be remarkably detailed! You can even see a preview of your smile after your adjustment after digital measurements are taken!
Straightening Your Teeth Can Have A Positive Effect On Your Oral Health
You can be understandably eager to see your smile improved through Invisalign treatment. Thanks to Propel Orthodontic technology, the end of your adjustment can actually come sooner than you might think possible. While the changes to your smile can certainly be exciting, you can also look forward to oral health improvements from your adjustment. By straightening your teeth, you can correct problems related to your bite. You can also make preventive dental care easier by straightening out overlapping teeth that can be difficult to clean.
