Correcting the alignment of your teeth is necessary when your normal day to day functioning, particularly when speaking and eating, are affected.
With the usual solutions available, you may feel that your teeth are getting the wrong kind of attention from people you meet or encounter. You also probably think that the metal restraints spread across your teeth somehow diminish your physical appeal or attractiveness.
Does everyone need to know how you are resolving your bite issues? Not anymore! And with an innovative treatment method such as Invisalign that we at Lifestyle Smiles offer, you can look forward to being less self-conscious about your dental work in progress.
What is it?
Invisalign is a series of removable, clear teeth aligners that works like those traditional metal braces used for correcting spacing issues, crowding, over-bites, cross-bites, and under-bites.
Our dentist will need to take impressions, photos, and x-rays of your teeth in order to analyse if you are suitable for these invisible braces that fits your teeth comfortably like a glove.
The usual treatment time frame involved is one year. You will also need to commit to wearing the said device for 20-22 hours daily, taking it off only to eat. Otherwise, your treatment period will be extended.
What are the benefits of Invisalign over traditional braces?
Aside from straightening your teeth and treating a host of dental conditions as mentioned earlier, Invisalign can also let you eat whatever food you like! You can even floss and brush your teeth normally with it!
You will love its smooth, comfortable plastic material, which is a welcome change from that sharp metal brace that may cause irritation in your cheeks and gums, as well as injuries and sores due to constant contact with brace wires.
In addition, you will experience less pain compared to traditional braces as the force per week that Invisalign provides is minimal.
Most of all, you enjoy invisible orthodontic treatment that makes it look as if you have nothing on your teeth. Life goes on as usual, thanks to the Invisalign treatment at Lifestyle Smiles!
