Three Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Teeth Straightening Treatment

Have you been searching for the right treatment to help you get your teeth straightened once and for all?
Has the thought of traditional braces and wires put you off?

To the naked eye, Invisalign aligners can’t be detected. It is a popular teeth straightening treatment that is used by more than ten thousand medical professionals, who have treated nearly half a million patients.

Whether you are looking for more information on Invisalign aligners, or perhaps you are considering Invisalign as a treatment for straightening your teeth; Read on, for answers to the top questions to ask when you are looking for the best teeth straightening treatment.

1. How Do I Know If Invisalign Is the Right Treatment for Me?

If you have been considering a solution to help straighten your teeth, that can be completely planned in advance and at the same time, get a moderate prediction of how long it will take to treat you through to the end? Then, this could be the ideal system for you.

If you have any concerns about allergies to metal, Invisalign aligners will be the right option when looking for the best treatment to straighten your teeth as there are no brackets and wires. They will also sit on your teeth comfortably, gradually moving your teeth, in a gentle way until they’re where they need to be.

2. Are Aligners the Best Option for Teeth Straightening?

If you want to get your teeth straightened with no hassle, many types of aligners can be taken out when you’re eating food. This means you are able to have the complete freedom to drink or eat what you like during your teeth straightening treatment.

The only ongoing care and attention that the aligners will need is to be brushed and flossed, then to be changed once every two weeks during treatment. This makes Invisalign aligners the ideal choice if you are looking for a low or no hassle treatment option that will straighten your teeth.

Aligners are also considered to be a much healthier option too, as they lower any risk of gum or tooth disease which can come about from food that can get stuck to your teeth when wearing braces.

Invisalign aligners, as one example, will also help your teeth clinically as well. They’re made to custom-fit in your mouth, meaning they cause less irritation and cause less scratches. They also have a guarantee that they will be comfortable to wear for the duration of your treatment.

3. How Long Does Treatment Take With Aligners?

As you would expect with any custom-made treatment, every teeth straightening process that is carried out will take a slightly different length of time, so it does vary somewhat between patients. They average length of a treatment with an Invisalign aligner is between twelve and eighteen months.

Are aligners painful or uncomfortable to wear?

Having aligners fitted isn’t expected to be a painful process, it is reasonable to assume that the eventual tooth movements which are created may cause some minor pains occasionally. Feeling a little pressure is a good indication that the aligners are doing their job.
