Orthodontic adjustments take time to complete. With that said, a patient’s patience is rewarded at the end of their correction, as they can show off exciting cosmetic improvements! They can also enjoy oral health benefits from their adjustment, as straightened teeth can absorb and apply more pressure evenly when you bite down. Invisalign aligners can actually make the adjustment period easier for you, as they provide you with removable appliances that are difficult for others to notice. While you might feel some pressure from the movement of teeth, the overall adjustment experience can be easier than with a fixed appliance, as you can simply take them out at times when they are in your way. Our Rochester, MN dentist’s office has helped many people fix their smile flaws with these appliances, and we can discuss how they might benefit you during a consultation.
Invisalign Appliances Can Make Orthodontic Treatment More Comfortable
Because Invisalign aligners are removable, there will not be any concerns over how they affect what you can eat, or how effectively you will be able to clean your teeth when brushing and flossing. They can also make you more comfortable because you can keep them in place and avoid the notice of others.
Our practice is committed to patient comfort even before the adjustment officially begins. Instead of asking you to bite into a plaster mold to create a physical impression of your bite, we take digital measurements with our iTero digital scanner. With the images captured, we can actually show you a “preview” of how you will look after your correction is complete!
Your Daily Experience With Invisalign Aligners
You should make sure your aligners are worn throughout the day, only taking them out during meals or when you clean your teeth. Keeping them in place as often as possible will help you stay on track to complete your correction on time. You will move from one appliance to the next at the designated time – while some check-in appointments are scheduled, you will have fewer appointments overall than you would if you needed manual adjustments for a fixed appliance.
We Can Shorten The Time It Takes You To Complete Your Adjustment
Even with an easier, less awkward adjustment, you can be eager to be done with orthodontic work as soon as possible. Thanks to Propel Orthodontic technology, we can actually shorten how long it takes to complete your adjustment! This technology helps by speeding up the adjustment of tissues that support teeth. When those adjustments are successful, they can ensure that your results last.
