Because Invisalign aligners provide you with removable appliances, rather than fixed braces, you can control when you have them in place. While this can make it easier for you to clean your teeth, and it can make eating less awkward, keeping them off for too long can create problems for your treatment timeline. Fortunately, these appliances can be carefully designed to stay secure, and they can be counted on to attract minimal attention thanks to their clear design. Our Rochester, MN dentist’s office has provided many patients with Invisalign treatment. The process of fixing smile gaps and overlaps can make you more confident in the way you look, and it can also offer welcome oral health improvements!
Our iTero Digital Scanner Helps Create Custom Aligners
The aligners that you receive will be customized for your smile. To gather the information needed to provide personalized appliances, our practice uses an iTero digital scanner to closely measure your bite and oral structures. This work can create beneficial data while removing the need to make you bite into plaster to produce a physical bite mold. With the digital scans gathered, we can even show you a preview of your smile after your adjustment is complete.
Wearing Your Invisalign Aligners
While you may experience some discomfort from the movement of your teeth, your appliances will be designed to make your adjustment as comfortable and non-intrusive as possible. Thanks to their see-through design, you can wear Invisalign aligners even at times when you might be more conscious of your appearance. With that said, you should feel free to take them out when you eat, or whenever you clean your teeth. Keeping them off during the day when they are not directly interfering with a task can extend the time it takes you to complete your adjustment. If you want to see results in even less time than normal, ask about Propel Orthodontic technology, which can make a shorter adjustment possible!
Fixing Alignment Problems Can Lead To Oral Health Improvements
By straightening your teeth, you are able to do more than just boost how confident you feel about your smile. Working to correct alignment flaws can lead to bite improvements, so you are less likely to develop aches or pains in your jaw joints and muscles. You can also find it less difficult to prevent dental health issues by fixing overlapping teeth, as your adjustment can make them easier to clean.
